2013 NFL Draft Undrafted Free Agents: Ray Graham heading to Houston Texans

Andy Lyons

With undrafted free agent deals coming fast and furious, it didn't take running back Ray Graham long to find a home. As he tweeted, he's headed to the Houston Texans.

I just covered Graham a bit here shortly after the draft. He was expected to be drafted, but was passed up in favor of several other running backs. Graham will now try to latch on with one of the top offenses in the NFL.

The Texans do have star Arian Foster as well as younger back, Ben Tate on the roster. But their third primary back, Justin Forsett, signed with Jacksonville this offseason, so there could be a bit of an opening there for a guy like Graham. That's especially true when you consider that Houston didn't draft any other backs. There's always free agency, but the Texans could be a place where Graham gets a shot to stick with the team as a third down back.

As I've said before, his ability to catch balls out of the backfield and rack up yards after the catch is a reason I like his game. That's something Foster does as well (40 catches in 2012) and I think Graham could be valuable in that respect.
