RB Tyler Ervin - Green Bay Packers
|5-10, 192||Born: 10-7-1993||College: San Jose St.||Drafted: Round 4, pick 2016|
2017 Week 1 vs JAX (3 / 8 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 18 / 0 rec)
It was an interesting today for Ervin and he had 71 all-purpose yards on the day. They moved him around to wide receiver, running back and returner. He did most of his work in the slot catching 4 passes for 18 yards. Ervin is still learning the position but it is clear that the Texans are trying to work him into the offense to make him a play maker. Also, Ervin had 8 yards on three carries but there was not much to the running game for the Texans on the day.
2017 Week 2 vs CIN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 16 / 0 rec)
Another high snap player, Ervin remains getting work as a running back and slot wide receiver. He caught three passes on the night and is was mainly in the middle of the field. He did have one pass that Watson hung him out to dry in the middle of the field and another that was in the flats that was thrown behind him. He did have a reception wiped out due to an illegal formation that would have been at least 11 extra yards on his day. Ervin is getting touches and they will continue to add up.
