The Houston Texans Take a Developmental Tackle in Round One
The Houston Texans gave up the most sacks in the NFL in 2018, so the number one pick in their 2019 draft was Alabama State offensive tackle Tytus Howard.
Howard got to Alabama State as a high school quarterback, switched to tight end, gained 85 pounds and ended his collegiate career as an NFL prospect. The thought here with Howard is that the young man could be really good eventually. He's still learning the nuance of the position. He's raw.
Is he a guy that helps the Texans immediately? Will he be able to keep Deshaun Watson clean? Maybe.
The Houston Texans have 6 picks remaining in the draft and you can listen to the Texans on Awesome 98 this fall.
