Texas A&M Football OL Carson Green was signed by the Houston Texans
Yeah, this coming season’s offensive line has their work cut out for them. Carson Green was actually projected to be drafted this year. He wasn’t a high pick, but it was generally accepted that he’d be taken somewhere in the 6th or 7th round. That would not end up happening.
Instead, he would go undrafted, but not because of a lack of success on the field. As goes for every offensive lineman spoken of today, he was part of a unit that was a finalist for the Joe Moore Award, given to the best unit in college football.
As a high school prospect, he was not a big recruit, sitting on the outside of the top 1,000 players in his class. This wouldn’t stop him from earning instant playing time though, as he snuck his way into four starts in his freshman season. He wouldn’t relinquish this starting spot until he departed for the NFL.
Much like almost every lineman that was part of this unit, Green was an elite run blocker but was iffy on the pass. He has time to improve, but right now, he’ll be fighting for a spot on a 53-man roster like the rest of these guys.
After being one of the top players to go undrafted, he would sign with the same team that picked up his Ryan McCollum in the Houston Texans. This is one of two Texas A&M Football reunions that will be happening through this year’s NFL Draft.
