A player, coach or issue that should be on your radar as training camp approaches.

Trindon Holliday
Trindon Holliday's speed has impressed coaches during OTAs.
While he was at LSU, Trindon Holliday didn’t get enough touches. When he did, he was feared in space because of his blazing speed. A little guy, he could also be hard to see.

It wasn’t hard for the Texans to see his value.

The sixth-rounder’s been impressive in early action with the Texans as OTAs have gotten under way. The Texans have some fast skill players, but Holliday’s feet and speed have stood out. Andánot just on special teams.

“He’s been impressive, and I think everyone knew he was a returner and that’s why we drafted him, but he’s held up outside, too,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “So we’ll see.”

Andre Johnson’s supporting cast at receiver can be productive, but the Texans will find room for Holliday on the field if they see ways to get him in space and believe he can be reliable. That could cost David Anderson or Jacoby Jones some touches.

But it’s very intriguing to imagine Johnson clearing out some defenders and Matt Schaub finding Holliday a few times a game on offense.
