Shark Bites

According to league insider Aaron Wilson, Texans WR John Metchie “wasn’t encumbered by a knee brace” in rookie OTAs. The rookie, ~5.5 months removed from an ACL tear, was considered a “limited” participant. “I talked about us initially just taking everybody through a certain amount of tests to see exactly where they are,” HC Lovie Smith said. “We’re in the process of seeing exactly when John would be ready to go. Eventually, he will be ready to go. There’s a lot that he can do before that. He’s not 100% yet, but in time he will be.” Metchie’s a redraft long-shot, although he’s worth monitoring as he gets further removed from the injury.

The Texans added Alabama WR John Metchie with the 44th overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft. Metchie is rehabbing a December ACL tear that prevented him from working out in the pre-draft process. We’ll see if that threatens his availability for the start of his rookie season. Metchie is coming off a big 96-1,142-8 line, leading ‘Bama in catches and finishing 2nd to Jameson Williams in yards and TDs. He ran about a third of his routes from the slot and was much more effective there, averaging 3.59 yards per route vs. just 1.83 from the outside. At 5’11, 187 pounds, Metchie looks like a slot receiver as a pro. He’s not an explosive athlete but is an effective route runner with reliable hands. Consider him a high-floor prospect with a relatively low ceiling. Once healthy, he should quickly carve out a significant role in Houston alongside Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins.
