With the 37th overall pick in the NFL Draft, the Houston Texans selected Baylor safety, Jalen Pitre.

You can see his highlights here on YouTube.

Here's an overview of Jalen Pitre from our draft expert Lance Zierlein, via NFL.com.

Pitre is a coach's dream with exceptional competitive drive and desired intangibles for teams where locker room culture matters. He became an impact player in Baylor coach Dave Aranda's "Star" position but he might not have the physical tools to stay in a similar role as a pro. He's a little tight in his lowers, which could impact his success in man coverage. He might benefit from a scheme that allows him to play with more linear pursuit. Pitre played well at the Reese's Senior Bowl and tested well at the NFL Scouting Combine and his pro day. He could develop into a future NFL starter as a Day 2 selection.
