Breakfast: 3 schools have 4 alums apiece on Texans


The 2018 NFL Draft is over, and the Texans added eight new players to the squad.

That's jiggled up the roster in a number of ways, one of which is the schools represented.

Clemson has four former Tigers currently on the Texans, in quarterback Deshaun Watson, receiver DeAndre Hopkins, and defensive linemen D.J. Reader and Carlos Watkins.

There are also four Auburn Tigers in Houston, in fullback Jay Prosch, receiver Sammie Coates, offensive lineman Chad Slade and defensive end Angelo Blackson.

On Saturday, the Stanford Cardinal tied up Clemson and Auburn after the Texans added linebacker Peter Kalambayi. The night before, safety Justin Reid was drafted in the third round. Those two rookies join linebacker Brennan Scarlett and defensive back Johnson Bademosi.

So Clemson, Auburn and Stanford are the most-represented schools on the Texans roster.

Illinois, Miami (FL), Mississippi State, San Jose State and South Carolina each have three former players on the Texaans roster.
