Notable names picked 103rd overall

The Texans have added five free agents from outside the organization in the last few days. In late April, they'll add some rookies to the mix through the draft, in which they currently own eight picks. 

Over the last week, we've examined some notable names that have emerged at each pick throughout NFL history.

Today, the focus is on the Texans' fourth round selection, which is the 103rd overall pick.

Lately, Devonta Freeman has been the biggest contributor to have been taken 103rd. The Florida State running back's been selected to a pair of Pro Bowls, and scored 37 touchdowns in just four NFL seasons.

Linebacker Bradie James spent the final season of his NFL career with the Texans in 2012. But in 2003, Bill Parcells and the Cowboys picked up the LSU Tiger at 103 overall, and he manned the middle in Dallas for the next nine seasons.

Way back in the 1940's, a pair of Hall of Famers in Dante Lavelli (1947) and Tom Fears (1945) were picked 103rd overall. They combined to catch 100 touchdown passes for the Browns and Rams, respectively. 

Below are some of the key contributors in NFL history who were chosen at the 103 spot in the draft.
