Colin Klein produced strong showing in Texans rookie camp.
Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak was full of praise for QB Colin klein after the team finished their rookie minicamp, and said that he would have a long discussion with the player about his future.
Klein went undrafted this year and wasn’t even signed to a free agent deal, so when he was invited to a tryout with the AFC South team, and left a good impression with his coach.
Speaking to NFL.com, Kubiak had nothing but positive comments for the Heisman trophy finalist.
“He’s got a ton of talent,” Kubiak said.
“For what he did in college and what Jake (Plummer) has been doing with him, he’s come a long way, as far as working under center and stuff. The arm strength is there. The delivery is a little different but you work with that. But his instincts as a football player you can’t coach; the way he just takes off and stuff like that.”
Klein has been highly-criticized by scouts and analysts about his awkward throwing motion, and that his accuracy was not good enough to play at the next level. His athletic ability was what elevated him to the next level at Kansas State, and hopefully will help him do the same in the NFL.
There are four QB’s already on the depth chart at Houston, but if the 23-year old can continue to improve his delivery, then a invite to training camp is possible this year.
