The Professional Soccer Corridor of Fame will induct the category of 2023 on Aug. 5. Listed below are gamers from the 2023 Texans who might be a part of the immortals in Canton sometime:
Fringe Corridor of Famer
Laremy Tunsil, offensive sort out: It ought to come as little shock that the Texans, who’ve one of many worst rosters within the NFL, have little by way of gamers with reliable Corridor of Fame prospects. However amongst a sea of mediocrity, Tunsil is the one participant who might have a case by the point he calls it a profession.
A 3-time Professional Bowl choice, Tunsil is the highest-paid offensive sort out within the NFL for a purpose. The 28-year-old has allowed three or fewer sacks in six of his seven seasons, together with surrendering only one over his final 22 video games. Tunsil has by no means surrendered double-digit QB hits or greater than 5 sacks in any season, and he hasn’t allowed greater than 20 pressures since 2019.
If Tunsil performs for an additional 5 seasons (the common profession of a Corridor of Fame offensive sort out is roughly 10 to 12 years), he might have as many as six Professional Bowls, which might tie him for twenty third all-time amongst tackles. Tunsil is not at all a lock for the HOF, however he not less than has a shot.
A younger participant who might develop right into a Corridor of Famer
Will Anderson, defensive finish: Once more, there are slim pickings for this class attributable to Houston’s younger and inexperienced roster. Nonetheless, of everybody who will swimsuit up for the Texans this 12 months, Anderson has nearly as good a shot as any to have a HOF profession.
Although he hasn’t even been by his first coaching camp, if Anderson is nearly as good because the scouts venture him to be, he might problem J.J. Watt for the title of greatest defensive participant in franchise historical past.
Anderson was one in every of simply 14 gamers within the NCAA with 10 or extra sacks in 2022. The 21-year-old edge rusher had 207 QB pressures in three seasons with the Crimson Tide, according to Pro Football Focus, and racked up 58.5 tackles for loss and 34.5 sacks over three years at Alabama.
Watt is the gold commonplace for Texans defenders, and if Anderson can come wherever near the 725 pressures, 371 hurries, 225 QB hits or 101 sacks that Watt had in his 10 seasons in Houston, Anderson might discover himself sporting a gold jacket someday.
