Texans announce position change for quarterback Jeff Driskel



Former Louisiana Tech and Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel has bounced around NFL rosters since he was taken in the sixth round of the NFL Draft by the 49ers in 2016. In his first year with the Texans, he’s set to take on a new role: tight end.

Driskel has been a pretty dangerous dual-threat player since his time in college. He rushed for 972 yards and 14 touchdowns at that level and has taken more advantage of his athleticism in limited NFL snaps.

In 15 NFL games, he’s carried the ball 53 times for 309 yards and three scores, adding a reception for six yards in 2019 with the Lions.
