With the 26th Pick, the Houston Texans select…  Rueben Randle, wide receiver out of LSU.  That could be the words you hear Roger Goodell say when the Texans make their 1st Round selection on draft night.

Randle and many other prospects faced their potential employers at the combine. The former LSU Tiger met with the Texans and liked his meeting with Gary Kubiak and his staff.

“They’re just looking for a playmaker and I told them I can be that guy if they want me to be,” Randle said.  “It was a pretty good conversation with Coach (Gary Kubiak)’s staff and the GM, a lot of good things were said.”

Randle is working out over at Plex in Stafford, as he prepares to try and wow the NFL at his upcoming Pro Day at LSU.  He now hopes to improve on his 40-yard sprint time of 4.55 seconds at the combine and a vertical leap of 31 inches.  Randle says that he hopes to have better numbers in those areas, when he works out for the scouts/coaches in Baton Rouge.

As of now, Rob Rang and Dane Brugler of NFLDraftScout/CBSSports.com have the Texans picking him with their 26th pick of the draft.  While at LSU, Randle finished his three-year career with 97 catches and 13 touchdowns for over 1,600 yards.  53 of those catches and eight of those endzone trips came in his final year under Les Miles.
