Homegrown: Texans Value Family Support In NFL Draft Picks


GM Nick Caserio jokes that he was starting the "Houston Texans Community College.'' His statement came following Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft after the selection of Baylor safety Jalen Pitre — who was the second prospect the Texans drafted who grew up around the Houston area. The Texans chose a trio of homegrown players with the additions of offensive linemen Kenyon Green (No. 15 overall) and Austin Deculus (No. 205 overall) by the end of the draft. Caserio drafted Houston natives due to their on-field college production that made them top prospects at their position. But keeping the rookies close to their support system is a method Caserio believes will help with their transition to the NFL. Watch NFL live online with CyberGhost VPN.
