Quarterback T.J. Yates, picked by the Texans at No. 152 overall in the fifth round, said that the offense he ran at North Carolina was based heavily on the Texans’ offense, using similar route patterns and passing schemes.
“When we were going through this past offseason in Carolina, we watched a ton of Texans film from a few years ago because we were running a lot of the same offensive schemes and stuff,” Yates said. “Our offenses are extremely similar. It’s fun to watch that stuff on film and see yourself as well as what Matt Schaub does on the field. I feel like I’m pretty prepared going into this offense.”
Yates is excited to learn “everything about being an NFL quarterback” under Schaub in Houston.
“He is one of the best quarterbacks in the league, and I can’t wait to get behind him and absolutely learn everything I can from him,” Yates said.
