The NFL Draft is 19 days away, and the Houston Texans are hard at work finalizing their draft board. The Texans held a local workout head of the 2017 NFL Draft on Saturday, as former collegiate athletes from across the State of Texas and as far as Indiana showed off their skills for the brain trust on Kirby Drive.

The group was headlined by The University of Texas at Austin running back D'Onta Foreman, Texas A&M quarterback Trevor Knight, and Houston quarterback Greg Ward Jr. (who will move over to wide receiver in the NFL), reports the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson.

Other names included Alabama linebacker Ryan Anderson, Indiana offensive tackle Dimitric Camiel, Utah cornerback Brian Allen, Stephen F. Austin tight end Zach Conque, Lamar running back Kade Harrington, Iowa State cornerback Jomal Wiltz, East Central Oklahoma receiver David Moore, FIU tackle Dieugot Joseph, Texas Southern defensive end Damond King, SMU quarterback Matt Davis, and Texas Southern kicker Eric Medina.

One last name was former Texas Southern wide receiver and Rosenberg Terry product Derrick Griffin. Griffin worked out at tight end for the Texans. He stands at 6’6’’ and 240 pounds with plenty of success on the basketball court for teams to dream of another Antonio Gates like conversion (one state championship and SWAC tournament championship).
