Former Kentucky cornerback Derrick Baity went undrafted in the 2019 NFL draft, but he’s not allowing that to stop him from making a name for himself in the NFL.
Baity signed with the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent and is certainly making the most of his opportunity.
In last night’s contest against the Detroit Lions, Baity led the Texans with six total tackles, while adding two pass deflections, and an interception.

It is going to be an uphill battle for Baity Jr. to make the Texans 53 man roster as they are deep at the corner position. Fortunately, the rest of the league will also evaluate Baity Jr.’s preseason tape, and if he continues this pace it may be enough to make a roster.
