WATCH: WR Xavier Hutchinson all smiles at Texans’ rookie minicamp

The Houston Texans selected Iowa State receiver Xavier Hutchinson with the 205th pick in the 2023 NFL draft, and with their rookie minicamp officially underway, the team posted a video of his cheery demeanor to Twitter on Saturday.

General manager Nick Caserio was particularly bullish on the selection of Hutchinson and told reporters shortly after the draft that he expects big things from his late-round receiver.

“You go back and look at his production, and I would say, I don’t know, he had 100 catches last year, the year before, whatever it was,” Caserio explained of Hutchinson. “Good size. Good toughness. Really good with the ball in his hands, great practice player. I would say this is a classic example of a guy whose workout didn’t go great, but he’s a good football player, so he falls into that bucket. It’s a player the offensive staff thought highly of.”

Clearly, the Texans’ front office is confident that their newest receiver can play a role in their offense next year, and judging from the video from Twitter, Hutchinson is happy to be in the Lone Star State to begin his NFL career.
