Texans will now pick 40th overall in 2020 NFL Draft

Houston will now pick 40th overall in the NFL Draft.

Following the trade with Arizona, the Texans own a pair of second round selections: the Cardinals at 40th, and their own at 57th. They dealt their fourth-rounder to the Cardinals, and will get a 2021 fourth-rounder back.

In all, Houston has eight picks in 2020. The Texans dealt this year's first round pick along with next year's first-rounder to Miami in the trade that netted them left tackle Laremy Tunsil, receiver Kenny Stills and a fourth round pick this year. Their sixth round selection went to the Patriots for cornerback and special teams standout Keion Crossen.

Last week, Houston was awarded a compensatory pick in the third round, and two in the seventh. The third round compensatory pick went to Cleveland in the trade for running back Duke Johnson.
