The Texans have tabbed a single Star Condition hero his or her next backfield horse.
Houston selected Texas running back D’Onta Foreman using the No. 89 overall pick within the 2017 National football league Draft.
The Texans will finish track of the reigning Davey O’Brien Award Champion (Clemson QB Deshaun Watson) along with the Doak Master Award Champion (Foreman).
Foreman rushed for just two,028 yards and 15 touchdowns inside a dominant 2016 season that National football league Network analyst Charles Davis when compared with Derrick Henry’s 2015 campaign at Alabama.
The Longhorns star lately revealed to National football league Network’s Andrea Kremer the dying of his infant boy inspired that outstanding season.
At 6-feet- and merely over 230 pounds, Foreman has a power back’s body but faces questions regarding his capability to tell you contact in the National football league level. If he keeps his weight lower, though, he offers legitimate 4.50 40-yard dash speed like a gifted downhill runner.
“I believe this can be a great pick,” National football league Network draft analyst Lance Zierlein stated, “for any team who would like to win using the running game when they determine the quarterback situation.”
Foreman is a welcome accessory for a Houston backfield which featured an overworked Lamar Miller last season.
