During the second day of the NFL draft, the Houston Texans traded away most of their Day 3 draft assets. Going into the final day of the NFL Draft, the team only had 4 draft picks remaining three of which were compensatory picks (which cannot be traded).

Round 6 Comp: Reshard Cliett – Linebacker out of Central Florida
Round 6 Comp: Christian Covington – Defensive Tackle out of Rice University
Round 7: Kenny Hilliard – Running Back out of Louisiana State University.
