After going undrafted at the NFL Draft, former Kansas State star Collin Klein will get a chance to play quarterback for the Houston Texans. Well at least during training camp. Or maybe not even then.
According to John McClain of the Houston Article, it’s not likely the Texans will head into camp with the 5 quarterbacks.
Collin Klein will play QB with Texans. He joins Matt Schaub, TJ Yates, Case Keenum and Stephen McGee. They won’t take that many to camp.

It’s nice to see Klein get a chance to make a NFL roster as a quarterback, considering he was invited to workout with the tight ends during the scouting combine. During now and the beginning of the season, Klein will have to do his best to distance himself from the Tim Tebow comparisons some people have been making.
