Coming in at the 59th pick, Houston took Notre Dame's offensive tackle Blake Fisher.

League sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Texans acquired the No. 78 overall pick from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for Houston's 86th and 123rd pick. Houston then selected USC safety Calen Bullock with the 78th overall pick.

With the 188th pick, Houston took linebacker Jamal Hill from Oregon
