Keke Coutee drafted 103rd overall by the Houston Texans

Keke Coutee was selected in the fourth round by the Houston Texans. Here’s a quick reaction and what it means for both parties.

Well congratulations Houston fans. You have a Red Raiders on your coaching staff, and now you have a Red Raiders on your roster. In the fourth round, with the 103rd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Texans drafted Keke Coutee. It was announced by one of your franchise’s greatest players in receiver Andre Johnson, and perhaps Keke will follow in his path.

For those you haven’t read, here is my profile on Keke Coutee. My first reaction was that this is a great addition for both sides. First off, for Keke, he goes in the early fourth round, which is a little earlier than I expected. He also goes to Houston, which is about two hours away from his home town of Lufkin. He goes into a situation where he’ll have a chance to prove himself as a receiver and a kick returner, and his coach in none other than Wes Welker.

For the Texans, they get a receiver they can throw to on the inside. Braxton Miller hasn’t developed like they’d hope so far, Bruce Ellington is alright, but nothing special, and they already have established outside receivers in DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller V. With DeShaun Watson at the helm, Lamar Miller in the backfield and the emergence of D’Onta Foreman, dare I say the Texans finally have an offense to be afraid of?

Congrats Keke! We wish you the best of luck in Houston!
