Houston Texans: 5 worst NFL Draft picks of all-time

1 of 6

With the NFL Draft just around the corner, here is a look at the biggest draft blunders in Houston Texans history.

Despite making only three appearances in their 14-year existence, the Houston Texans have enjoyed a handful of successful moments in the NFL Draft.

In their second year in the league, the Texans drafted a wide receiver in Andre Johnson who could very well find his way to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. And just five years into his NFL career, 2011 first round pick J.J Watt already appears on his way to Canton, Ohio, having grabbed three Defensive Player of the Year awards by age 27.

Most recently, Houston found a steal in 2013 at the 27th overall slot in DeAndre Hopkins, who has already emerged as one of the elite wide receivers in the league.

But for a team that has been so bad throughout its history, forgettable and painful draft memories tend to outweigh the positive ones, beginning with the first pick that the franchise ever made.

Some players turn out to be busts out of a pure lack of effort, while others do not pan out simply due to never living up to their potential on the field.
