Texans to pick 3rd overall in 2022 NFL Draft, also know 2nd & 3rd round slots

The Texans have four picks in the first 80 slots of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Houston finished 4-13 in 2021 and owns the third overall pick in the first round. In all, they currently hold nine picks in the Draft, which begins Thursday, April 28, in Las Vegas.

Due to strength-of-schedule differences between the three clubs, and the New York victory over Houston in Week 12, the Texans got the third overall pick ahead of the Jets and Giants, who also finished 4-13.

Because of that, the Texans' second-rounder is the 37th overall pick. The Jets have the third pick of the second round, the Giants have the fourth, and Houston the fifth.

The Texans' third-rounder is 68th overall and the fourth pick in that round. The Giants have the third pick of the third, while the Jets have the fifth in the third.

Houston's August trade that sent CB Bradley Roby to the Saints yielded New Orleans' third-rounder, which is 80th overall.

The Texans have a selection in the fourth round, three picks in the sixth, and a seventh-rounder. The two additional sixth-rounders are Green Bay's and San Francisco's. The 49ers pick came to Houston via the Jets in the trade for DE Shaq Lawson.

The seventh-rounder is the Cowboys' draft pick, as they swapped for DL Eli Ankou in 2020.

Once the NFL awards compensatory picks in the next few months, the complete draft pick order will be finalized.
