    Houston Texans preseason: rookie report card

    Even though the Houston Texans were unable to pull out a victory against the Carolina Panthers, the rookies were in full swing as they were able to get a taste of NFL action., fans did a glimpse of the 2017 NFL Draft class in their first professional outing. From first round pick Deshaun Watson to potential undrafted star Dylan Cole

    While Waston’s overall performance will be the talk of the town, GM Rick Smith should be happy with his overhaul this season after several players seem to be adjusting to NFL speed fine., several other rookies were able to show their worth early on as well. From solid tackling by second round pick Zach Cunningham to a long run from third round pick D’Onta Foreman

    Overall, here are my Texans rookie report cards after the first preseason game., Houston’s rookie class put on a show tonight and several truly impressed. As the local NFL Draft analyst for both the Texans Wire and the wire staff

    QB Deshaun Watson

    3 carries,Authentic Gareon Conley Jersey,Final Stats: 15/25, 179 yards,Authentic Obi Melifonwu Jersey, 24 yards, 1 TD

    collective and poised each snap as he led the Texans to two scoring drives,Authentic Eddie Vanderdoes Jersey,Overview: Watson looked the part of the team’s starting quarterback Wednesday night and did not disappoint Texans fans. While he did have several accuracy issues, the first round gun-slinger looked calm,Authentic David Sharpe Jersey, including a 15-yard rushing touchdown near the end of the third quarter. He’ll need to go back and work on some mishaps next week before New England comes to town, but his first outing was one to remember.

    LB Zach Cunningham

    4 solo tackles,Authentic Marshawn Lynch Jersey,Final Stats: 7 total tackles

    Overview: Cunningham didn’t see any first team reps, but that didn’t stop him from leading the team in tackles. Excellent from the “MIKE” linebacker position, Cunnigham looked calm and easy transitioning into his new 3-4 defensive role. A high tempo and great closing speed, even when the Vandy standout did an excellent job slowing down the runner and allowing his teammates to deliver the final blow minutes later. He’ll need to work on his wrap up tackling but his overall first game can be considered a win.

    Final Grade: A-

    RB D’Onta Foreman

    76 yards,Final Stats: nine carries

    strength,Overview: After finding himself in a bit of trouble this past offseason, Foreman showed the Texans why they believe he could be the future running back long-term down on NRG Drive. The Doak Walker winner showed off a great combination of speed, and agility in the open field against the Panthers. His night concluded on an excellent breakaway 41-yard run to set the Texans up in Panther territory late into the fourth quarter. He may not be the starting running back this year, but the future backfield in Houston could be bright with an outing like this one.

    Final Grade: A

    OT Julie’n Davenport

    Overview: In minimal snaps, the rookie from Bucknell showed decent footwork and excellent hand movement in both run and pass coverage. He may need time to become a full-time starter but the day 3 pickup is already looking like a big win for the future., Davenport showed promise a potential left tackle of the future with the second team offense. Drawing zero penalties and only allowing one quarterback hurry

    Final Grade: B

    DL Carlos Watkins

    one solo tackle,Final Stats: 3 total tackles

    Overview: Much like his former Clemson roommate did last year, the former fifth round pick seems to have transitioned smoothly from a base three to a nose tackle. There’s very little to complain about his overall performance., Watkins impressed early on a strong rotational player to DJ Reader. Decent footwork but a nice job closing up the middle

    Final Grade: B

    LB Dylan Cole

    2 solo tackles,Final Stats: 3 total tackles

    Overview: Even though the Texans didn’t draft him, Cole’s presence was certainly felt on the field tonight. The former Missouri State standout was excellent against the run with the second team defense and was able to put pressure on Joe Webb three times in pass coverage. As a special team player,Womens Gareon Conley Jersey, his ability to slow down the returner allowed his teammates to catch ground and eventually make the stop. No play was more impressive from Cole than his fumble recovery returned 34 yards for a touchdown. While the touchdown was overturned, Cole is certainly becoming a household name and a fan favorite moving forward.

    Final Grade: A-

    TE Evan Baylis

    24 yards,Womens Obi Melifonwu Jersey,Final Stats: 3 receptions

    Baylis showed enough to put him in contention with Stephen Anderson for a final roster spot at tight end. His lost fumble was a big red mark.,Overview: Baylis saw playing time with both the first and second team offense. A flex tight end with strong hands

    Final Grade: C

    WR Riley McCarron

    18 yards,Womens Eddie Vanderdoes Jersey,Final Stats: 1 reception

    Overview: A hot name rising in the mountains of West Virginia, the opener was certainly not his best outing.,Womens David Sharpe Jersey, McCarron was only targeted twice tonight and did drop one of those passes. While he’s been a popular name to potentially make the roster with Will Fuller’s broken collarbone
