The Houston Texans worked out Villanova offensive tackle Brad Seaton earlier in the off-season according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson. The Texans are now taking that a step further and now having Seaton visit the Texans at NRG Stadium as one of their thirty pre-draft visits.
What is a Pre-draft Visit?
the Texans, along with the other NFL teams are allowed 30 draft eligible players to visit the team’s home faculty or another location for a one-day physical examination. The players on these visits cannot be timed and tested. They can have interviews and written tests that the prospect can complete for the respective team.
Seaton checks in at 6-8 and 329 lbs. and he was not invited to the NFL Combine but opened some eyes with his film and pro-day. Seaton ran a 5.37 40-yard dash, benched 24 reps of 225 lbs. and a vertical jump of 26 inches.
A three year starter for Villanova, Seaton is considered one of the more agile options at offensive tackle for his pal frame. There is some concern on if he can gain enough strength to hold up against NFL pass rushers but his fit for a zone blocking team could be an added plus to his draft value.
Seaton has been garnering plenty of attention with private workouts with the Texans, Buffalo Bills, New England Patrtios, New York Giants and New York Jets. He also has an upcoming visit with the Philadelphia Eagles.
