After a wildly successful 2023 class, the Houston Texans won the AFC South and are poised for success, but how many picks do they have in 2024?

How Many Picks Do the Texans Have in 2024?

Houston has eight picks in the 2024 NFL Draft, with five coming from other teams. The Texans used their own first-round pick to move up in last year’s draft to secure Anderson but retained the first-round selection the Cleveland Browns sent them as part of the Deshaun Watson trade.

Houston also picked up an additional fourth-rounder from Cleveland in that trade.

Houston received a third-rounder from the Philadelphia Eagles after a trade-down last year, recouping their own third-round pick they used as part of their trade-up in Round 1.

The Texans spent their fifth-round selection on a trade with the Arizona Cardinals for OT Josh Jones and used their sixth-round pick this year on a trade-up in last year’s draft.

Houston received a conditional seventh-rounder from the Kansas City Chiefs after trading safety Lonnie Johnson and has another courtesy of the New Orleans Saints after a 2021 trade for RB Mark Ingram. The Texans also hold their own seventh-round selection (245th overall).

Who Did the Texans Draft in 2023?

Houston spent their initial first-round pick last year on Stroud, who had a tremendous season, winning Offensive Rookie of the Year and looking like a franchise QB for years to come.

The Texans’ second first-round pick was Anderson, who they drafted after orchestrating a trade with the Arizona Cardinals. Anderson won Defensive Rookie of the Year after posting eight sacks and 68 pressures as a rookie.

Houston used its second-round pick on Penn State center Juice Scruggs, selecting him 62nd overall. Scruggs missed most of the season with a hamstring injury suffered in the preseason but debuted in Week 12, taking over at left guard and starting there for the team’s last eight games.

The Texans struck gold again in Round 3 by selecting Houston WR Tank Dell, who developed into an excellent weapon for the Texans this season, catching 47 passes for 709 yards and seven touchdowns.

Houston opened up Day 3 by taking two defensive players, using their fourth-rounder on TCU pass rusher Dylan Horton and their fifth-round selection on Alabama linebacker Henry To’oTo’o.

Horton was part of the Texans’ pass-rush rotation but didn’t record a sack. Meanwhile, To’oTo’o started several games and finished sixth on the team in tackles.

After taking two defensive players to start Day 3, Houston opted to spend their two sixth-round selections on offensive players, nabbing Notre Dame center Jarrett Patterson and Iowa State wide receiver Xavier Hutchinson. Patterson started eight games this past season, while Hutchinson mainly saw the field on special teams.

The Texans wrapped up the 2023 NFL Draft by selecting Pitt safety Brandon Hill, who played in just two games this season on special teams.
