The number of undrafted free agents that contribute to their team's success in the NFL are noticeably few. For the great franchises like the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers, there may be a distinct, but certainly not large, list of undrafted free agents that will be remembered forever in the team's lore.
The Houston Texans, however, have only played a total of 10 seasons in the NFL, and the list of the franchise's greatest undrafted players is not one full of stars and Pro-Bowlers. Rather, the best undrafted players in Texans history are mainly athletes who made a small, yet meaningful impact for the franchise.
These players may have contributed to the Texans throughout the majority of their careers, or they may have just been important to the team for a single season.
In Texans' history, they have had two undrafted players that went on to become Pro-Bowlers and members of the First Team All-Pro, and they have had a total of 14 undrafted players who have started for them.
Without further ado, let's take a look at the undrafted players in Texans franchise history who have made the most major contributions to the team.
