Source: LSU corner Derek Stingley Jr. to visit Texans

LSU cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. is visiting the Texans this weekend, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly.

The Texans hold the third overall pick and the 13th overall pick of the NFL draft.

Stingley, who has made a full recovery from a Lisfranc foot injury and proved that with a 4.37 time in the 40-yard dash at his Pro Day, also has meetings with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Detroit Lions, New York Jets and New York Giants

Some NFL scouts clocked Stingley at 4.33 seconds. Stingley aims to improve his NFL Draft stock this month.

Stingley also had a 38 1/2 inch vertical leap and a 10-2 broad jump, displaying explosiveness.

Those numbers help prove that his foot is sound, and so is his draft stock as a projected first-round pick.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert attended the workout along with Washington Commanders general manager Martin Mayhew and Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley.

Stingley Jr. intercepted 27 passes during his high school career. He was a five-star recruit, ranked first overall by Rivals.

As a true freshman, he started for LSU and led the SEC with 6 interceptions and 15 pass breakups. That performance led to him being named first-team All-SEC and was a consensus All-American.

Stingley has an extensive football pedigree. His father, Derek Stingley, played in the Arena Football League, while his grandfather, Darryl Stingley, played in the NFL.
