Texans Receive Third, Sixth Round Compensatory Picks

Six weeks out from the NFL Draft, the Houston Texans received two compensatory picks on Monday – one in the third round, and one in the sixth. The picks come as a result of losing linebacker Mario Williams, offensive lineman Mike Brisiel, cornerback Jason Allen and tight end Joel Dreeseen, according to Chron.com.

All of this gives the Texans a total of nine selections in April, leaving plenty of opportunities to draft a safety, linebacker, wide receiver or even quarterback.

The Texans draft order now stands as follows:

Round 1 – Selection 27

Round 2 – Selection 57

Round 3 – Selection 89

Round 3 – Compensatory Selection – 95 (Effective at the end of round)

Round 4 – Selection 124

Round 5 – Selection 160

Round 6 – Selection 195

Round 6 – Compensatory Selection – 201 (Effective at the end of round)
