The Houston Texans announced Friday that they’ve signed six draft picks to rookie contracts.
This leaves just three unsigned players from the Texans’ 2022 draft class:
|1||Derek Stingley Jr.||CB||Signed|
|2||John Metchie III||WR|
The Texans also signed 11 undrafted free agents and DL Adedayo Odeleye as their international pathway player.
- Myron Cunningham OL Arkansas
- Damion Daniels DL Nebraska
- Drew Estrada WR Baylor
- Jacobi Francis DB Memphis
- Seth Green TE Houston
- Troy Hairston DL Central Michigan
- Jake Hansen LB Illinois
- Kolby Harvell-Peel DB Oklahoma State
- Kurt Hinish DL Notre Dame
- Johnny Johnson III WR Oregon
- Tristin McCollum DB Sam Houston State
Stingley, 20, was a three-year starter at LSU. He was a first-team All-American and first-team All-SEC selection as a sophomore but missed time during his junior season due to a Lisfranc injury. The Texans used the No. 3 overall pick on him in the 2022 draft.
Lance Zierlein compares him to Colts CB Stephon Gilmore.
He’s projected to sign a four-year, $34,657,529 contract that includes a $22,385,476. There is also a fifth-year option for the team to pick up in 2025.
During his three-year college career, Stingley recorded 73 total tackles, seven tackles for loss, six interceptions, 20 pass defenses, two fumble recoveries, and two forced fumbles.
