Houston Texans NEWS

The Houston Texans selected wide receiver Isaiah Coulter with the 171st pick during the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft on Saturday. Coulter, 21, spent three seasons playing for the Rhode Island Rams, where he and his cousin, Aaron Parker became a dynamic duo.

During his final season, Coulter received second-team All-Colonial Athletic Association honors after recording 1,039 yards (14.4 per) on 72 receptions and eight touchdown in 12 games for the Rams in 2019.

“I’m coming in ready to work and I am eager to learn,” Coulter said. “I just want to help whether it’s on special teams or a role as a receiver. I’m just trying to help those guys out in anyway I can.”

The 6-foot-2 receiver finished his career at Rhode Island with seven 100-yard games. Mainly an outside receiver in college, Coulter says he can bring some versatility to the Texans receiving core.

“I feel like I could play inside or outside,” he said. “I would just have to lock in and learn the plays from different spots on the field, but I feel like I could play anywhere.”
