Stephen Houston, RB, Indiana

UDFA. Signed by Patriots as UDFA but released in August and signed by the Steelers, who also released him in August. But he’s talented enough to stick on some team’s roster or practice squad.

Positives: Adequate height and good bulk for the position. Above-average upper-body strength. Very good vertical leap. Very good vertical leap and overall lower-body explosiveness. Above-average power. Average speed. Patient. Above-average hands and can extend. Churns fairly well through contact. Has good body lean. Protects the ball through the line. Fair balance after contact.

Negatives: His patience borders on indecisiveness. Runs a little bit upright. Better on inside runs than outside runs. Below-average change-of-direction ability and burst. Is a long strider, and his feet don’t look quick.

Projection: No need to draft in fantasy, though.
