Notable names who were picked 222nd overall

The 2018 NFL Draft begins Thursday, April 26 in Arlington, Texas.

After a pair of 2017 trades with Cleveland, the Texans won't pick until the next day. They own a trio of third-round selections, and eight picks overall.

Over the next week or so, we'll examine pick-by-pick some of the more notable names that have been selected where the Texans are picking.

Their final pick of 2018 is in the 7th round, and it's the 222nd overall choice. Houston's never had a pick in this slot, but there have been some names you'll know who've gone there.

Quarterback Trent Green played in a pair of Pro Bowls with the Chiefs, and spent over a decade in the League.

More recently, Pat McAfee was chosen by the Colts in the 2009 NFL Draft, and he went on to be a weapon at punter for eight seasons. 

Since 2011, the seven players selected 222nd overall have played a combined 84 games. The most famous of names picked at 222 only lasted two years in the NFL, and played in 24 games. But it was career after pro football that set him apart, as Tom Osborne was head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers for 25 years, winning three national titles in the process.

Below are a few more notable 222nd overall picks who've made contributions.
