Who is the next Alfred Blue?
In 2014 the Houston Texans made a quiet selection. Most had moved on throughout their lives. Jadeveon Clowney. Xavier Su’a-Filo. C.J. Fiedorowicz. Louis Nix III. The Texans upgraded the trenches, what an incredible draft to build off of. Little did we know that in the sixth round the Texans made their greatest sixth round selection of all-time—the one, the only, Alfred Blue.
Blue with an approximate value of 18, and a season as the Texans starting running back, is the best sixth round selection the Texans ever made. 673 carries. 2,407 rushing yards. 8 freaking touchdowns. A godly 3.57 yards a carry. The type of back who can carry a rushing attack on his own.
Today the Texans try and find their next Alfred Blue in the sixth round of the NFL Draft. After trading back up into the fifth round, the Texans only have one chance to find the next Alfred Blue. They are set to pick at #195 overall.
REMINDER: Do not post any tweets or posts that tip picks before they’re announced on the live television broadcast. Doing so will be a bannable offense.
Round six is set to begin Texans fans. The comments are open for business.
