Texans select C.J. Fiedorowicz with #65

Posted May 9, 2014

The Texans added tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz with their third-round, 65th-overall pick.

The Texans added tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz with their third-round, 65th-overall pick. At 6-5 and 265 pounds, Fiedorowicz appeared in 51 games, starting in 20, during his four-year career at Iowa.

The Johnsburg, Illinois native received All-Big Ten Conference first-team honors from The NFL Draft Report and the league’s coaches. He was awarded second-team accolades from the media. Fiedorowicz finished his career with at least one reception in 31 consecutive games.

Fiedorowicz met the Texans coaching staff at this year’s Reese’s Senior Bowl and at the NFL Combine. Head coach Bill O’Brien worked him out at Iowa and the two got along well. While he considers himself a dual-threat tight end, blocking and catching, he considers blocking his strength.

“As a freshman, (Iowa head coach) Coach (Kirk) Ferentz said from day one, if you want to be on the field, you have to learn to block, and I took that to heart,” Fiedorowicz said. “From that day on, I started blocking and enjoying it. That’s a big part of what people do in the NFL and what you would want to do, so if they ask me to block on the edge, I am going to do everything I can do to see that edge. If they ask me to go out on a route, I am going to do catch every ball.”

Fiedorowicz followed O’Brien’s career at Penn State and New England. He models his game after the Patriots All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski.

“I like watching Rob Gronkowski, he’s a guy who can dominate at the line of scrimmage but also stretch the field,” Fiedorowicz said. “He’s a big, physical guy. I feel like I can really dominate in both areas and that’s who I’m going to keep pushing to be, the best. I’m not going to settle for anything.”
