A couple of notes from Texans camp on Saturday:
- Rookie RB Kenny Hilliard caught four passes at LSU as a senior but watching him catch the ball during minicamp, OTAs and again today, it’s clear he catches it better than you’d expect from those numbers. He made a handful of catches and looked comfortable in that aspect of the offense.
- Rookie TE Mike McFarland, known a bit more for his blocking than his receiving, made a few sweet catches throughout practice. He’s a big boy and if he can catch it consistently and his blocking matches up, he’ll get more important reps as training camp continues.
- After an initial drop, TE C.J Fiedorowicz was much more of a factor in the passing game. He made a couple of touchdown catches down in the red zone and seemed much more comfortable than he was last year. If he, Ryan Griffin and Garrett Graham can be more involved in the passing game, look out.
