RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Christian Covington.

2016

Covington played 15 games during his rookie season, seeing time at both nose tackle and defensive end. With Jared Crick moving on in the offseason, the starting right defensive end job is available and Covington is competing with Devon Still, Brandon Dunn and Jeoffrey Pagan. Covington has the inside track, even after he sustained a concussion early in camp, and was named the starter in place of J.J. Watt (back) for the Texans’ first preseason game.

2015

Covington is a 2015 sixth-round draft pick out of Rice, whom the Texans believe can be an impact pass rusher. As a nose tackle, he doesn't figure to get much playing time behind Vince Wilfork, but has a sub-rusher on passing situations he could generate a few sacks.
