Texans draft history: Sixth-round picks

Posted by Nick Scurfield on April 20, 2012 – 1:35 pm

We’re taking a round-by-round look at the players who have been drafted by the Texans since their inaugural season in 2002. In particular focus are the picks made since 2007, Rick Smith’s first draft as Texans general manager.

Bold denotes made Texans’ active roster that season
*Denotes finished 2011 season on an NFL roster
#Denotes Pro Bowlers

Texans sixth-round draft picks

2010: Trindon Holliday, WR, LSU (197 overall)*
2010:
Shelley Smith, G, Colorado State (187 overall)*
2009: Brice McCain, CB, Utah (188 overall)*
2008: Dominique Barber, S, Minnesota (173 overall)*
2007: Kasey Studdard, G, Texas (183 overall)*
———————————————————————————
2006: Wali Lundy, RB, Virginia (170 overall)
2005: C.C. Brown, SS, Louisiana-Lafayette (188 overall)*
2004: Charlie Anderson, LB, Mississippi (200 overall)
2004: Jammal Lord, FS, Nebraska (175 overall)
2004: Vontez Duff, CB, Notre Dame (170 overall)
2003: Keith Wright, DT, Missouri (214 overall)
2003: Drew Henson, QB, Michigan (192 overall)
2002:
Howard Green, DT, LSU (190 overall)*
2002: DeMarcus Faggins, CB, Kansas State (173 overall)

All five sixth-round picks under Rick Smith have made the active roster (Holliday was called up from the practice squad for one game in 2011). Studdard (14 games), Barber (7) and McCain (4) have all started games for Houston.

McCain, Smith and Holliday are still on the Texans’ roster. Studdard and Barber are unrestricted free agents. McCain is coming off a standout season as the Texans’ nickel corner. Smith spent last season on injured reserve but could be a key backup in 2012, while Holliday likely needs a strong offseason to earn a roster spot.

Report: Texans waive eight players, sign two

Posted by Nick Scurfield on August 30, 2011 – 8:42 am

The Texans waived eight players, placed four on injured reserve and signed two new players last night, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Nothing has been announced by the team, so nothing is official at this point in time.

Per McClain, the Texans signed veteran wide receiver Bryant Johnson and guard Andrew Gardner. They waived cornerback Antwaun Molden, safety Antonio Baker, punter Brett Hartmann, safety Maurice Rolle, cornerback Jason Teague, linebacker Matt Marcorelle, guard Darius Morris and wide receiver Paul Williams.

The Texans reportedly placed guards Kasey Studdard (ankle) and Shelley Smith (ankle) and wide receivers Lestar Jean (shoulder) and Devard Darling (knee) on injured reserve. All 32 teams have until 3 p.m. CT today to get their respective rosters down to 80 players.
