NEW YORK (CBS HOUSTON): The Houston Texans drafted C.J. Fiedorowicz a TE from Iowa with the 65th pick overall in Friday’s round three of the NFL Draft.
Fiedorowicz will be the 3rd tight end for the Texans who have Garrett Graham and Ryan Griffin as good pass catching TE on the roster. Fiedorowicz is more of a blocking, on the line tight end.
Good versatility, showing the ability to come off a down block to get past defenders as a receiver. Good body control and soft hands for such a large man, traits that have led Washington junior Austin Seferian-Jenkins to earn a lot of attention as a possible first-round pick. Fiedorowicz isn’t as flashy as ASJ, but he’s just as big and fast in a straight-line and is a much more physical and attentive blocker.
