Total Kept: 6
The Texans know what they're going to get from starters Joseph and Jackson. McCain can be expected to fill in at nickel corner, but could be pushed by Brandon Harris for the job.
It's possible Roc Carmichael could be fighting for his roster spot, but it's difficult to tell in just the small sample of playing time to this point in his career. The former fourth-round pick has been eased along slowly and hasn't been tested on the field enough to fairly judge if he can hack it in the NFL.
Harris and Carmichael should be expected to play a bunch in the preseason. Both have risen up the depth chart at a snail's pace since they've been drafted, so it could be finally time to test them with tons of preseason snaps.
Johnny Adams might literally be the last player to make the team. The fact that corners are at such a premium in today's NFL will make it very difficult to cut Adams. He's one of the most talented undrafted free agents the Texans signed, and he will make an NFL roster if it isn't in Houston.
