3. Houston Texans: Derek Stingley Jr.
Most experts believed this is where the draft could get interesting. Leading up to Thursday, it was all but certain that Walker would be going No. 1 and Detroit would respond by taking Hutchinson with the second pick. The direction the Texans were potentially headed was a bit more of a mystery. Opting to stand pat at three, Houston snagged one of the top-two corners in the draft in LSU’s Derek Stingley Jr. The lockdown CB is a special talent who shined as a freshman for the Tigers. However, Stingley has been hampered by injuries the last two years. While his skills as a lockdown defensive back are evident, he certainly comes with a bit of risk given his checkered injury history.
