Round 6, 205th Overall: Dontario Drummond, WR, Mississippi
The Houston Texans have an interesting receiver room at the moment. Brandin Cooks is their route running/deep threat “Z”, Collins is their “X”, and they have other speed guys in Chris Conley and Phillip Dorsett. What the unit doesn’t have is a reliable player over the middle of the field. Dontario Drummond can be that guy.
Drummond is reliable as a possession receiver who does a good job finding holes in zone and attacking upfield post-catch with good speed and vision. He has arrogant hands and attacks the catch point well.
Round 6, 207th Overall: Chase Lucas, CB, Arizona State
Adding to the cornerback room is a must, and it’ll likely mean multiple draft picks in the 2022 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans. Chase Lucas is a nice add late, as he brings the toughness, processing skills, and tackling ability to play in man and zone coverage. The ball skills are evident as well.
Round 7, 245th Overall: Curtis Hodges, TE, Arizona State
The Texans have their receiving tight end in Brevin Jordan, but outside of him, the room doesn’t inspire confidence. If they go the inline direction, Curtis Hodges is a solid receiver who thrives working as an extra lineman at the line of scrimmage. He could get some reps in TE-heavy looks as a rookie.
