I was hoping he would fall to the Texans. Lonnie Pryor was a 4* running back coming out of high school that came to Florida State with 2 or 3 other 4* running backs. He was asked to move to fullback early on, just to see the field. He went on to be a great and versatile fullback for 4 years. Great blocker and receiver, pretty good runner in the ZBS. He caught 5 TDs on 41 receptions in his career, also ran for 18 TDs on 124 carries (5.8 YPC). He was constantly praised by head coach Jimbo Fisher for his willingness to move to the position and his work ethic. He called Pryor his "glue guy."
6' 227 lbs, ran a 4.70. Played in 54 games. Did not miss a game.
Could be a backup FB/4th RB/ST guy for the Texans.
