Houston drafts TE Fiedorowicz, DT Nix in 3rd round

Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - The Houston Texans selected Iowa tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz with the first pick of the third round.

The Texans also traded up to select Notre Dame nose tackle Louis Nix with the 83rd pick in the draft.

Houston traded the first pick in the fourth round (101st overall) to the Eagles to move up.

Despite their need at quarterback, the Texans have drafted defensive end Jadeveon Clowney with the No. 1 overall pick and guard Xavier Su'a-Filo in the second round before picking up Fiedorowicz with the 65th overall pick.

Fiedorowicz had 30 receptions for 299 yards and six touchdowns last season. Houston re-signed tight end Garrett Graham this offseason, but lost tight end Owen Daniels in free agency.
