12:49 PM ET 04.28 | Former Kansas State quarterback and Heisman hopeful Collin Klein tweeted on Saturday night that he will be signing with the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent. Like Tim Tebow, Klein was a great college quarterback, but he may struggle to make the transition to the NFL. He may have to make a transition to either running back or fullback to get a lot of time on the field at the next level. He could, however, take snaps as a wildcat quarterback. The Texans are set at quarterback with Matt Schaub and Klein will likely fight with Case Keenum, Stephen McGee and T.J. Yates for a backup position.

I see a lot of similarities between Klein and Colin Kaepernick, circa the Nevada days. Might sound crazy now, but nobody expected much from Kaepernick when he came to the NFL, either.

I feel like after Kaepernick's overwhelming success recently NFL teams would be foolish not to give Klein a shot at QB.

Pro scouts were very down on Klein, for a long time now. Saying he has terrible mechanics and a weak arm for an NFL QB. They were not down on Kaepernick at all, he was drafted early in the 2nd round.

It will be interesting if Schaub goes down early and Klein gets a chance to play.
