The Texans used a draft pick (4th round, 2016) on Ervin and are still waiting for return on that investment. He was the primary return man on both punts and kicks during his rookie season, but exhibited ball-security problems. In 2017, he was poised to add third-down back to his special-teams role. He had 10 targets over the first two weeks before his season was cut short by a torn patellar tendon in Week 4. There's still a need for both roles entering 2018, so much depends on the health of his knee. In a passing-oriented offense with the dynamic Deshaun Watson, Ervin could emerge has a receiving threat, however, he'll be no better than third on the RB depth chart behind Lamar Miller and D'Onta Foreman.

  2. Tyler Ervin 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Ervin spent most of his rookie season on special teams, leading the Texans in punt and kick returns. Head coach Bill O'Brien never really gave him a shot on offense. And why would he, with Lamar Miller having a career season. Ervin's role shouldn't change too much in 2017. The Texans do feel that he can be a playmaker in the return game.
  3. Tyler Ervin 2016 Preseason Outlook
    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.
