Really makes the ineptitude of the Texans player development program apparent, doesn’t it?

I’ve got very high expectations for Charles, defense will take a big step forward this year.. we’ve got to keep teams from putting up 30 pts .

Charles last year in school ; 9.5 sacks as a senior, when he was named the Big 12 Defensive lineman of the year and wasn’t FAU the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year?
