The Houston Texans made a surprising pick at No. 3 overall in the NFL Draft on Thursday night when they selected LSU corner Derek Stingley Jr. Many in the media believed the Texans would draft an offensive tackle with their first pick, but the Texans decided to take a player they believe is the best corner in the draft. Houston addressed the offensive line with their next pick at No. 15 overall after trading back two spots, selecting Texas A&M guard, Kenyon Green.

Be sure to check out the video to see Texans GM Nick Caserio tell Stingley over the phone that he will be drafted by Houston. Caserio also talks with Texans CEO Cal McNair about the selection. Finally, Stingley gets on the phone with head coach Lovie Smith, and Cal McNair.
