Ranking the Houston Texans' Top 6 Sleepers to Watch in Camp

With the turnover on the roster over the last several seasons, expect many new players to be asked to step up and into important roles on the Houston Texans' roster this season.

Not all of those big roles will be filled by a big name.

Everyone knows that Jadeveon Clowney, Louis Nix III and Ryan Fitzpatrick will be asked to make an impact, but who are the lesser known players who could play a vital role in the team's success this season and beyond?

Who is this year's Arian Foster? Not many fans knew who the undrafted free agent out of Tennessee was in 2009, but by the end of the year, he had two great games under his belt and looked poised to break out the following season.

Foster did just that in 2010, not even 12 months after he was a virtual unknown.

In the age of the salary cap and free agency, teams aren't able to stockpile their starting lineup with 22 first-round picks, so a few underdogs have to make a difference in order for a team to succeed.

That thought rings true for the Texans, who are in the middle of a roster overhaul after losing about a dozen major contributors over the last three offseasons.

With training camp just around the corner, these six names are the players you should be paying attention to because they're all in a position to make a surprising impact.
