The Houston Texans have Western Kentucky offensive lineman Forrest Lamp at NRG Stadium for their pre-draft visit. The Texans have spent the past couple seasons attending Western Kentucky practices and there is little surprise in the interest in Lamp.
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.
The former Hilltopper measures in at 6-4 and 309 lbs., and was one of the top performers at the NFL Combine in the 40-yard dash (5.00), bench press (34 reps), broad jump (111 inches) and 3-cone drill (7.55 sec.).
Lamp played his final two seasons at left tackle after playing on the interior of Western Kentucky’s offensive line. His athleticism helped him hold down the left side but there are questions if his skill set will put him as a long term option at left tackle. Many see him as a guard at the next level but that currently is the biggest concern with Lamp.
In 734 snaps (415 passing snaps) in 2016, Lamp surrendered zero sacks with 5 total pressures, 3 quarterback hits and 2 hurries.
Lamp was invited to the NFL Combine and the Senior Bowl.
