Cheap Cullen Gillaspia Jersey

Catching passes, throwing blocks and covering kicks, Texans rookie fullback Cullen Gillaspia is building a reputation with his versatility and work ethic.

The seventh-round draft pick from Texas A&M and Katy Taylor graduate is off to a good start with the Texans.

Gillaspia is the first 12th Man in school history to be drafted by an NFL team.

Gillaspia has made a strong impression on Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.

“Gilly, he’s a guy who works hard, doesn’t say too much,” Watson said of the former all-district selection. “He goes to work and he loves the game of football. He loves Houston. He actually can run and catch and do the things we want him to do.
“He’s a hard-nosed football player. We’re glad to have him on the team. He’ll continue to get some downhill runs and lead for Lamar (Miller), D’Onta (Foreman) and Josh (Ferguson).”

Cheap Lonnie Johnson Jersey

The Houston Texans selected a cornerback in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, but can he earn a starter’s role once Week 1 rolls around?
When the Houston Texans selected Kentucky Wildcats cornerback Lonnie Johnson Jr. in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, they made a clear statement to the rest of the cornerback roster that things need to improve, or things will be changing.

In their most recent depth chart of the Houston Texans, OurLads.com has Johnson as the top reserve cornerback to veteran cornerback Aaron Colvin, whom the Texans signed as a free agent last year. Colvin didn’t pan out in his first year with the Texans — he played four previous seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars — so improvement to the cornerback position is key for the Texans to get back to the playoffs and actually win in 2019.

Colvin played in 10 games last season in his first year with the Texans, but just two of those games were starts. Colvin, whom the previous season had five passes defensed in 2017, totaled just one pass defensed in 2018 while in the secondary of the Texans.

The cornerback Colvin also made 29 tackles (22 solo) and has not recorded an interception in his first five years as an NFL player.

That brings in Johnson, as the Texans should have high hopes for him to eventually become a big part of the secondary, whether it be this season or next season, but at some point in 2019 Johnson will need to make an impact for the Texans’ defense.

In a recent article on the OTAs of the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle spotlighted the rookie cornerback, quoting teammate Justin Reid on Johnson:

“He’s a big kid, almost bigger than me. You see it when he plays. You see it on the practice film. He knows how to use it as well, which is one of the good things about having good corners, is they know how to actually body receivers, especially if they’re going against a big guy.”

That is good news for the Texans, as they really do need to have a player like Johnson in the mix for the secondary to have success. It will be tough for Johnson to be a starter once Week 1 arrives, but if he continues to show the potential he possesses — and even more so, shows success — Johnson might be able to jump Colvin on the depth chart.

At Kentucky, Johnson is described in his NFL.com draft profile as a player who has a chance to become a starter. Johnson ran a 4.52 40-yard dash and has a vertical jump measured at 38 inches, plus the same draft profile by Lance Zierlein said:

“Has physical traits to become much more effective from press … Shows flashes of aggression to become better in run support …”

This position battle with the cornerbacks of the Texans should be exciting once training camp arrives in late July. Texans fans had better be ready to see if this rookie can make the coaches notice him even more than usual, as Johnson should challenge the current players who are penciled in as a starter at cornerback.

The Houston Texans still need to fill roles within the roster, and free agency is the way to add players who are needed for the team to have the proper depth to their roster.
Looking at the current depth chart of the Houston Texans, there is more left to the imagination than what should be, because there are free agents still looking for a team who could really help out the franchise on both offense and defense.

Sure, the Texans are the reigning AFC South champions and they hosted a playoff game, but when it mattered the most the Texans looked their worst as their last game played was a wild card playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts, a team they have to also play twice during the regular season.

Houston has talented players on their roster, there is no doubt about that, but looking back to last season, where the Texans were hampered was on the depth of their roster as they suffered multiple injuries and their overall depth showed as the franchise had to make a trade at the deadline and give up a fourth-round pick in the process.

If the Texans want to add to their depth following the completion of the draft and as they wait for the offseason camps to begin, the best way for the team to improve is by signing players who are free agents.

Some of the following players can be game changers for the Texans, while others will fill in certain roles that might not stand out, but still be productive.
