Texans see Trindon Holliday as a difference-maker on returns

The Houston Texans spent a sixth-round draft pick on LSU’s Trindon Holliday, and coach Gary Kubiak thinks the move instantly made the special teams better.

“I think we got a returner that can change the field for us,” Kubiak said. “We think he can do wonders for our football team.”

The 5-foot-5 Holliday, who came in second in the 100-meter dash at the 2007 NCAA outdoor track and field championship, was definitely the shortest player in the draft and possibly the fastest.

Kubiak said he could see Holliday playing some running back, but he wants him to focus primarily on returning punts and kickoffs.
