Texans safety Justin Reid was vocal on the practice field during rookie minicamp. Bill O'Brien said he thought the third-round pick had "good size" and good speed." "[He's] a smart guy," O'Brien said. "A guy that's a versatile guy. He can do some different things. He can help us on special teams [and] obviously help us on defense. We just got here, so we'll see how he does in our system."

Justin Reid, the Texans' third-round pick, said he is "proud" of his brother Eric for standing up for what he believes in while protesting during the national anthem. Last week, Eric Reid filed a collusion grievance against the NFL; the free agent safety was one of the first players to join Colin Kaepernick in kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality. “I haven't had a lot of time to digest it yet, because I've been so focused on my own journey, getting prepared for the combine and then for the draft, and now I'm moving onto a big chapter of my life," Reid said. "I haven't had a lot of downtime to really process my feelings on that.”

Here are the Texans picks in the 2018 NFL draft: 3. (No. 68) Justin Reid, S, Stanford; 3. (No. 80) Martinas Rankin, OL, Mississippi State; 3. (No. 98) Jordan Akins, TE, Central Florida; 4. (No. 103) Keke Coutee, WR, Texas Tech; 6. (No. 177) Duke Ejiofor, DE/OLB, Wake Forest; 6. (No. 211) Jordan Thomas, TE, Mississippi State; 6. (No. 214) Peter Kalambayi, OLB, Stanford; 7. (No. 222) Jermaine Kelly, CB, San Jose State.

With the No. 211 pick, the Texans have drafted their second tight end of the draft. Jordan Thomas, who played at Mississippi State, is 6-foot-6 and 265 pounds and calls himself an "all-around tight end."

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

With the 177th pick, the Texans select DE/OLB Duke Ejiofor, who is from the Houston area. In his junior season, Ejiofor had 17 tackles for a loss, 10.5 sacks, an interception and two forced fumbles.

The Texans take WR Keke Coutee in the fourth round, giving quarterback Deshaun Watson another option. Coutee also has the chance to make an impact on kickoffs, which is an area the Texans struggled in last season.

Here are the Texans picks so far through the first three rounds of the draft: 3. (No. 68) Justin Reid, S, Stanford; 3. (No. 80) Martinas Rankin, OL, Mississippi State; 3. (No. 98) Jordan Akins, TE, Central Florida.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

TE Jordan Akins is the Texans pick at No. 98. The Texans lost their starting tight end when C.J. Fiedorowicz retired last month after dealing with several concussions in 2017.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

The Texans addressed their need at tackle by drafting Mississippi State tackle Martinas Rankin with the No. 80 pick. Rankin started nine games at left tackle last season and is another lineman who is versatile and can play guard as well.
