The Houston Texans have now released three of their first five picks in the 2013 NFL draft, with all three players getting cut before ever playing a down for the team.
Today the Texans cut Trevardo Williams, a linebacker chosen in the fourth round of last year’s draft. Williams spent the 2013 season on injured reserve, and after passing a physical yesterday, he lost his job today.
The Texans had two third-round picks in last year’s draft, and both of them are already gone: Brennan Williams was waived with a failed physical last month, while Sam Montgomery was cut last season for a violation of team rules.
Throw in the fact that the Texans have already waived-injured 2013 sixth-round pick Allan Bonner and cut fellow sixth-round pick Chris Jones after training camp last year, and Houston is already without most of the guys it drafted in 2013. Although 2013 first-round pick DeAndre Hopkins and 2013 second-round pick D.J. Swearinger are starters, most of that Texans draft is a big disappointment. G.M. Rick Smith has to be shaking his head at how that draft turned out.
