Texans have 8 picks in 2018 Draft

The Texans have eight picks in the 2018 NFL Draft.

On Friday, the League announced the compensatory picks and subsequent order of selections for the 2018 Draft.

The Texans added a compensatory Draft pick in the third round, courtesy of cornerback A.J. Bouye signing with the Jaguars last spring. They also picked up a pair of sixth round compensatory selections after losing linebacker John Simon and safety Quintin Demps in free agency.

Houston is without picks in the first, second and fifth rounds this April. Last year, the Texans swapped spots with the Browns in the first round, and added in a 2018 first-rounder. Houston used Cleveland's first round pick on quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Cleveland also has Houston's second-rounder in 2018 because the Texans traded it, and quarterback Brock Osweiler to the Browns for a 2017 fourth-rounder.

This autumn, the Texans traded left tackle Duane Brown and their 2018 fifth-rounder to Seattle for the Seahawks' third-round pick in 2018 and next year's second-rounder.

The first round of the Draft starts Thursday night, on April 26. Below are the Texans' eight selections, by round and overall pick.
