The Texans are continuing to scout their local area, and that area includes the state of Oklahoma where Houston had their representatives in Stillwater at the Oklahoma State Pro Day.

Here’s a list of the players who worked out:

CB Jacob Lacey

SS Ricky Price

C David Washington

DT Tonga Tea

FS Quinton Moore

RB Grant Jones

LB Jeremy Nethon

OL Steve Denning

DL Jeray Chatham

CB T.J. Bell (Tatum Bell’s younger brother) weighed in with their views on the Pro Day:

Oklahoma State’s former players participated in the 40-yard dash, bench press, two different shuttles, the long jump and had their vertical leaps measured.

Among the most recent graduates were defensive linemen Tonga Tea and Jeray Chatham, offensive linemen David Washington and Steve Denning, safety Ricky Price, and cornerback Jacob Lacey.

Former Cowboys tight end Brandon Pettigrew, projected to be a high draft choice in April, did not run for the scouts because of a slight hamstring injury. Pettigrew did all the workouts for the scouts and NFL coaches at the combine.

Ray Guy Award-winning punter Matt Fodge was hoping to punt for the scouts but was not able to do so because of the cold, windy weather.

Cornerback Jacob Lacey had the best day among the Cowboys with two clockings of 4.45 and 4.42 in the 40 and a vertical leap of 41 inches.

Tight end Brandon Pettigrew, the top player in the draft at his position was measured, but decided not to work out for scouts. He measured in at 6’6”, 263 lbs., and ran a 4.80 second 40-yard dash at the combine. A dominating run blocker, Pettigrew is athletic and has good hands. He is projected as a first or second-round pick, and could provide the Texans with a large red-zone target.
