Draft pick history since 2002: No. 233

Posted by Nick Scurfield on April 19, 2012 – 10:10 am


From 233rd overall in the seventh round to 26th overall in the first round, the Texans have eight picks in the 2011 NFL Draft. We’re taking a look at the players who have been drafted at each of those eight spots since the Texans’ inaugural season in 2002.

The Texans’ eighth and final pick in the 2012 draft is at No. 233 overall in the seventh round. They’ve have had the pick once before in team history.

233rd overall picks since 2002
2011: Lawrence Guy, DT, Arizona State (Green Bay Packers)*
2010: Jim Dray, TE, Stanford (Arizona Cardinals)*
2009: Sammy Stroughter, WR, Oregon State (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)*
2008: Justin Forsett, RB, California (Seattle Seahawks)*
2007: Chandler Williams, WR, Florida International (Minnesota Vikings)
2006: Devin Aromashodu, WR, Auburn (Miami Dolphins)*
2005: Jonathan Fanene, DE, Utah (Cincinnati Bengals)*
2004: Christian Morton, CB, Illinois (New England Patriots)
2003: Chance Pearce, LS, Texas A&M (Houston Texans)
2002: Tim Wansley, CB, Georgia (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

Six of the last seven players picked 233rd finished last season on an NFL roster. Somewhat surprisingly, seven of the 10 players picked at this slot since 2002 have played in at least one NFL game.

Pearce was cut by the Texans before the start of his rookie season in 2003. He was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers in January 2004 but never appeared in a game.
