Former Rangers prospect goes to Houston - in third round of NFL draft

2018 Texans Mock Draft Updated predictions for Rounds 4-7

With the 80th pick, the Texans selected tackle Martinas Rankin. Billy Joe Tolliver was also drafted by the franchise in 1989 as was Maury Buford in 1982, Jeff White in 1965, Roger Gill in 1963 and Ken Talkington in 1960. Originally a receiver, he added some beef to his frame to become a tight end, and he turned himself into a threat down the seam, catching a pass of 20 yards or more in nine of 11 games last season.

Let's get to the picks, in order. He could cause match up issues if given the opportunity to play and when he really starts to grasp Bill O'Brien's system. That is why you'll almost always see Reid at or near the ball when looking at tape. He averaged 15.2 yards per catch over his 3-year college career and enjoyed a breakout 93-1,429-10 2017 campaign.

"It's incredible", Reid said after the celebrating, hugging and cell phone picture-taking had died down, with the calm after the outburst interrupted by his mother Sharon Reid popping a champagne cork in the background.

Eric Sr. said the hope remains that Eric Reid Jr. will be able to sign soon with a team. He felt that's what he needed to do. The Texans' absence yielded a much more relaxed viewing experience. "He's better in coverage than his brother". He'll have to beat out Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson for playing time, and Akins could be a sleeper in re-draft leagues.

Unlike his brother Eric, Justin Reid has an NFL team. The junior was an All-Pac-12 first-team selection and made the second team on the FWAA and AP teams.

The Texans have done such a great job in drafting and signing corners that they can lose some every year and still keep NFL starters on the field. Benardrick McKinney is a rising star on the Texans defense.

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien and other members of the Texans coaching staff had the luxury of evaluating Akins for several days in January when they were coaching the South squad at the 2018 Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. The most likely to be drafted is tight end Jordan Thomas, who scouts love for his size and athleticism.
