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)
