Texans signed seventh-round S Lonnie Ballentine to a four-year contract.
Ballentine was Mr. Irrelevant. The 6-foot-3, 219-pound tackle machine out of Memphis possesses 4.39 wheels and explosive athleticism. He has a legitimate shot to earn a roster spot as an early-career special teams contributor. May 14 - 2:56 PM

Texans drafted Memphis S Lonnie Ballentine with the No. 256 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

It's the last pick in the draft. Compared to past years' Mr. Irrelevant, Ballentine is a pretty legit prospect. He was a sure tackler for the Memphis Tigers and goes 6-foot-3, 219 with 4.39 wheels, an explosive 10-foot-5 broad jump, and a 38-inch vertical. Ballentine was better with the action in front of him in Conference USA, but has tools for more if an NFL position coach and conditioning program can get him to max out his borderline-freakish tools. He'll compete for a roster spot as a special teamer initially.
