At the NFL Combine and 2017 Reese’s Senior Bowl, the Texans kept a close eye on BYU's Harvey Langi. He was able to put together a solid week of work at the East West Shrine game and got an invite to the Senior Bowl.
Spending three seasons with the Cougars, Langi started his college career at Utah where he played running back. When arriving to BYU, Langi switched to the defensive side of the football playing both defensive end and inside linebacker. In 2016, Langi appeared in 13 games (12 starts) and totaled 57 tackles with 2 sacks and 5 tackles for loss. He also had two rushing touchdowns on the season.
Measuring in at 6'2" and 251 lbs., Langi was a top finsher at the NFL Combine in the 20-yard shuttle (4.32 sec.) and the 60-yard shuttle (11.83 sec.).
It appears that Langi is considered a day three prospect and would be able to help at inside linebacker with enough skill to stay on the field for passing situations.
