2016

Ervin, a fourth-round draft pick in 2016, was an explosive back during his time at San Jose State but also improved as a receiver during his final two years with the Spartans. His big-play ability is what attracted the Texans, however, we don't see him making too much of an impact on offense early in his NFL career. Where you might hear about Ervin is in the return game. Boasting a 4.41 40-time, Ervin was a four-year kick returner at San Jose State and added punt returning to his resume the last two seasons, scored five touchdowns on special teams.
