Texans sign fourth-round pick Quin


The Texans have signed fourth-round draft pick Glover Quin, the team announced Friday. The cornerback out of New Mexico, selected 112th overall in the 2009 draft, is the fourth Texans draft pick to sign along with tight end Anthony Hill, cornerback Brice McCain and safety Troy Nolan.

"It just feels good to be officially signed and ready to go for training camp," Quin said. "To have that behind me, now I can just focusing on getting myself ready when I report for camp and getting ready to go."

Quin (6-0, 203) is expected to compete for playing time at the nickel corner position as a rookie. He impressed Texans coaches during OTAs and minicamp by consistently getting his hands on the football, including when he made three interceptions in the first three days of OTAs.

"That gives me a lot of confidence," he said. "I'm not going to sit here and say that I do everything right, but I pride myself on being a guy that's always around the ball and always playing 110 percent. I feel like if you're doing that, good things happen. You can't pick up a fumbled ball if you're not around it. You can't catch a tipped interception if you're not around it."

{QUOTE}Quin started 34 games in three seasons at New Mexico after one season at Southwest Mississippi Community College. He earned consensus first team all-Mountain West Conference honors as a senior, when he led the Mountain West Conference with 16 passes defensed and a career-high five interceptions.

The rookie attended North Pike High School in Summit, Miss., a town in southwest Mississippi with a population of less than 1,500.

"To come from such a small town to get to where I'm at right now, it's just a dream come true," Quin said. "It's something that I thought about all my life, something I worked for all my life."

The remaining unsigned Texans draft picks are linebacker Brian Cushing (first round), defensive end Connor Barwin (second), center Antoine Caldwell (third) and tight end James Casey (fifth).
