Patrick Towles Gets NFL Tryout

Highlands alum and former University of Kentucky and Boston College signal caller Patrick Towles is getting a chance in the NFL according to sources. He was not chosen is this weekend's NFL draft.



Patrick confirmed the news on Twitter.


In three seasons at Kentucky, Towles threw for 5,099 yards with 24 touchdowns and 24 interceptions before losing the starting quarterback job to Drew Barker.  In his final season of eligibility at Boston College, Towles amassed 1730 yards with 12 touchdowns and 7 interceptions, capping off the season against Maryland by throwing for 150 yards and two touchdowns, along with a touchdown catch.

It’s unclear whether Towles will be trying out at quarterback, or at tight end a position he was open to switching to during the scouting process for the draft. Houston certainly has a need at QB with Tom Savage and Deshaun Watson lined up to be the starter and QB2 this season, but tight end depth is something the Texans may want to look at as well.

What does this mean in terms of making the roster? The odds are probably not all that great. But still, Towles still could make the roster going into camp, and from there it’s anyones guess.
