ESPN Texans reporter Tania Ganguli reports the previous coaching staff was "excited" about second-year G/T David Quessenberry last summer.
Quessenberry, the 176th overall pick in last year's draft, landed on injured reserve with a broken foot in Week 2. The Texans have holes at both left guard and right tackle, though Quessenberry profiles more as a guard in the pros. He's an ideal fit for zone-blocking teams as a finesse blocker at 6-foot-5, 306. The Texans are likely to use less zone blocking under new coach Bill O'Brien. Apr 16 - 6:01 PM

Texans G/T David Quessenberry broke his foot in Wednesday's practice and is expected to miss the entire season.

He's undergoing surgery. The No. 176 overall pick in April's draft spent most of his time at left guard in the preseason. Pro Football Focus gave him a positive grade as a run blocker on 189 offensive snaps. He's a good fit for Houston's zone-blocking scheme as an athletic lineman. Quessenberry will be back to compete next year.

Texans agreed to terms with No. 176 overall pick OT David Quessenberry on a four-year contract.

Quessenberry has left-tackle size at 6-foot-5, 302 pounds with 34 3/8-inch arms, but doesn't play with an abundance of power. That's not a deal-breaker in the Texans' zone-blocking scheme, but means he'll need time to refine his technique. Quessenberry could also see time at guard.

Texans traded up to select San Jose State OT David Quessenberry with the No. 176 overall pick, sending the Nos. 184 and 233 overall picks to the Raiders.

Quessenberry (6-foot-4 7/8, 302) made 37 starts for the Spartans, primarily at left tackle. A former walk-on at tight end, he demonstrates enough athleticism and length (34 3/8") to potentially start at left guard or protect the blindside in a pinch, although Quessenberry must fill out his frame. He ran 5.08 with a 29.5-inch vertical at the Combine and performed 25 reps on the bench. Confirming his impressive short-area movement skills, Quessenberry's 4.45 20-yard shuttle was third fastest among offensive linemen. He's a quintessential zone blocker who will never play with power. Quessenberry could sneak into the starting lineup at right guard or right tackle for the Texans.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette believes San Jose State OT David Quessenberry "fits the profile" of a Packers draft pick.

Quessenberry played primarily left tackle for the Spartans, but the Packers believe the 6-foot-5, 302-pound prospect is capable of playing all three line positions. Quessenberry is long-armed and light on his feet, traits valued in Green Bay's zone-blocking scheme. Quessenberry projects as a third- or fourth-rounder.
