Houston Texans meet with Joey Ivie at the Florida Pro Day
The Houston Texans met with defensive tackle Joey Ivey at the Florida Pro Day.
The Houston Texans have met with Florida Gators defensive lineman Joey Ivie at their Pro Day. Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel was in attendance which gives the pro-day a little different meaning with him there.
Ivie is a 6-3, 301 lbs. defensive lineman that appeared in 11 games in 2016 and missed two games due to a broken thumb. With 26 total tackles, 2.5 sacks and 7 quarterback hurries, Ivie had extensive playing time the past three seasons.
At the Florida Pro Day, Ivie ran a 4.97 yard forty-yard dash, which is a solid time for his size and position. He also posted a 29 1/2 vertical and 26 reps on the bench press.
NFL circles appear higher on what Ivie can bring to a team than most draft analysts. Ivie is considered a late day two selection all the way to a potential rookie free agent.
