Texans draft Miami (Fla.) ILB Sharpton at No. 102

The Texans have two picks in the fourth round today. Their first, at No. 102 overall: Miami (Fla.) inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton (5-11, 236).

Sharpton is the third Miami Hurricane to be drafted by the Texans, joining wide receiver Andre Johnson (2003) and right tackle Eric Winston (2006). Texans center Chris Myers and tackle Rashad Butler also played at "The U."

The Texans have now selected a linebacker in all nine drafts in team history, making it the only position to have that distinction.

Houston's next pick is coming up at No. 118 in the fourth round.
