Former Houston Cougars take their talents to the next level
Houston to the NFL.
Draft Day is the most exciting time of the year for football fans. Players that were highly anticipated from the University of Houston are now off to leave a mark in the NFL; following in the footsteps of former players that adorned the scarlet and white, players like Elandon Roberts of the New England Patriots, Tyrus Bowser of the Baltimore Ravens and William Jackson III of the Cincinnati Bengals.
This year, the Houston Cougars sent off a few players of their own.
Coming in the seventh round, the Indianapolis Colts third pick is Houston’s own, Linebacker, Matthew Adams.
It was confirmed on Tuesday by the Houston Cougar Football Facebook page that four former players have signed deals as undrafted free agents with the following teams: Kyle Allen with the Carolina Panthers, D’Juan Hines with the Los Angeles Chargers, and Steven Dunbar and Terrell Williams with the San Francisco 49ers.
Although Houston fans were hoping to see more players get drafted, there’s no doubt that these players will have their coaches keeping an eye on the next Cougar NFL prospects.
