CHARLOTTE, N.C. — At the NFL draft combine last February, T.J. Yates was one of three college quarterbacks brought in not to be specifically evaluated but to spend their hours throwing passes to players who were potentially high on the wish list of various franchises.

Yates, who passed for 3,418 yards and 19 touchdowns as a senior at North Carolina, was in a throwing group with future Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, who was getting the microscope treatment while Yates was doing what amounted to football grunt work.

The two quarterbacks made some small talk, then Newton went on to become the No. 1 pick in the draft while Yates became the 152nd pick, a fifth-round choice of the Houston Texans [team stats], home of quarterbacks Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart.

On Sunday in Reliant Stadium, they will start against each other when the Panthers visit the Texans, who locked down the franchise’s first playoff berth last Sunday when Yates — the third-team quarterback three weeks ago — tossed a six-yard touchdown pass with two seconds remaining to beat Cincinnati 20-19, sparking a celebration across southeast Texas.
