Texans to Bring in Washington State CB Sean Harper Jr. to Rookie Mini-Camp

Patrick D. Starr

The Houston Texans are bringing in Washington State cornerback Sean Harper Jr. to rookie mini-camp. The three-day camp is set to start on May 10th-12th. The Texans will hold the camp to help rookies to become acclimated to NFL life before OTAs kickoff later during the month.

At Washington State, Harper appeared in 19 games in two seasons with eight starts at cornerback. He had 45 total tackles, one forced fumble, ten pass breakups, and one interception.

In 2018, he played in six games as a starter racking up 22 total tackles, three pass breakups, and one forced fumble.

In October of this past season, Harper's season was cut short after attempting to make a tackle on a ball carrier. He suffered a torn rotator cuff and the screws he had from a previous procedure shattered due to the impact of the collision while making the tackle.

Harper Jr. is expected to be clear for football activities by early May, and the Texans are giving him a shot to see how the rangy cornerback looks on the field.

I admit, I haven't seen this kid during the season. Didn't know who he was until seeing his name mentioned in minicamp. BUT I, being a former athlete, I am a good analyst of talent and usually don't really need to see much to know if a player is talented or not. From the highlights I've seen on this kid, he seems to be just as talented as, say someone like Greedy Williams of LSU... even kinda reminds me of Williams' playing style. Only due to injury that Harper didn't get the radar recognition as some of the other more talked about cornerbacks in this draft class, but if they are SMART, they will recognize this kid's potential and we may very well have snagged a diamond-in-the-rough.


I live in Seattle and saw a lot of Coug games the last few years. Everyone likes to talk about how great their offense was but their defense was severely underrated. Harper in 2018 specifically was a big part of that
