Now that the 2023 off-season is fully underway and your Houston Texans have a better grasp on the coaching staff for 2023, it’s time to focus on the NFL Scouting Combine.
The scouting combine allows coaches and scouting personnel to get up close and, personal, with would-be NFL rookies. From passing drills featuring Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Bryce Young, to player interviews, psychology tests and over all tire kicking, this is the best chance to learn about potential draft choices.
