D’Onta Foreman was drafted 89th overall by the Houston Texans and looks to compete with Lamar Miller for running back touches in 2017.
Foreman rushed for over 2,000 yards in his final college season, and proceeded to run a staggering 4.45 forty-yard dash at his pro day. With rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson now in the fold, the Texans offensive trajectory could be shifting. And for a team with a perceived workhorse RB in Miller, this is a very interesting selection.
We’ll talk more about how this pick affects the Texans in a bit, but first, let’s take a closer look at Foreman’s profile.
