The Houston Texans have a deep 2013 draft class and right now all have a legitimate chance to provide some key playing time in the coming season. We take an early look heading out of mini-camp on the draft class and the impact they will have heading into the 2013 season.
This list is compiled without work in pads and preseason games, but our impression from the practices we attended.
2013 Texans Rookies, Impact of the 2013 Season
9. Chris Jones
It’s tough to really get a gauge on the rookie defensive tackle from Bowling Green. The high motor defensive tackle has Earl Mitchell, Terrell McClain and David Hunter working also at nose tackle. Jones will have to take some big steps to overtake McClain and Hunter for the back up nose tackle behind Mitchell. The Monster of the Mac will have to show from day one of training camp what made him successful in college.
Prediction: Rotational Player and Special Teams.
Ryan Griffin, TE, #84
8. Ryan Griffin

Houston Texans, FLAT: What is there to say? The Houston Texans are the clear favorite in the AFC South, and there seems to be no valid reason that they won't retain their title atop the division. In the grand scheme of things, the Texans have a very real opportunity to make it a three horse race for the AFC title. The Broncos and Patriots will get all the press, but expect the...
