Default Jerel Worthy and the Texans

Jerel Worthy on NFL Network just stated he had met with the Texans a few weeks ago. (April 11th on path to the draft)

We all know the Texans will meet with various players just like all the other teams. Although, does this indicate that the Texans are looking for D-line early???

While it has been stated that we don't meet with the players we draft, we met with Rashad Carmichael last year before eventually drafting him.

So who knows.

Texans typically dont meet (or publicly meet) 1st round picks. Anything after that could be fair game. Could see Worthy being an option for us if he fell to the 2nd or 3rd.

He'd be a steal if we were able to grab him in the 2nd.

This below is INDEED a highlight reel, (which isn't a fair evaluation of a player) but a lot of his highlights in that video are against that Wisconsin offensive line. (Zeitler, Konz) Konz is a potential 1st round pick and Zeitler is a solid 2nd round pick.

So why shouldn't Worthy be considered a 1st round pick? Cody was solid but he didn't offer much with as a pass rusher, and with the way Wade runs his defense he'd like each player on that front 7 to be able to get to the QB.
