The Houston Texans added to their receiving options in the 2021 NFL draft with the selections of receiver Nico Collins in the third round and tight end Brevin Jordan in the fifth.
Quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who signed with the Texans in free agency, watched tape on Houston’s draft picks prior to working with them in organized team activities.
“When we drafted those guys, I had a chance to look at basically their scout tape and was very impressed,” Taylor told Houston reporters on a Zoom call on June 3. “Couldn’t wait to see Nico and Brevin in person.”
Taylor has seen Collins and Jordan through OTAs, and the 31-year-old quarterback can already tell the rookies are grasping the system under offensive coordinator Tim Kelly.
“They’ve impressed me the way they’re picking up the system,” said Taylor. “The way they’re going out and making plays has definitely impressed me and I’m looking forward to working with those guys throughout the season and getting those guys plenty of balls to catch for sure.”
Both targets provide the Texans with size in the passing game. Collins stands at 6-4, 215 pounds while Jordan is 6-3, 245 pounds.
