How many of Houston’s finest will be turning pro this spring?

It’s that time of year again, when we get to witness college standouts get the call of their dreams. With family and friends surrounding them and celebrating excessively, the new era of the NFL begins each year at the end of April.

The University of Houston will be headlining the Texas Kickoff at NRG Stadium this Labor Day Weekend. Before they get their season started, they’ll be sending off a few high performers to the NFL Draft.

The Cougars have been regulars in the NFL Draft, most recently with OT Josh Jones getting drafted in the Third Round to the Cardinals in 2020. For 2021, there are three Houston hopefuls waiting on a call:
