Texans Finish Draft By Taking Baylor Center Fuller

PHILADELPHIA (CBS HOUSTON) –  The Houston Texans selected Baylor center Kyle Fuller with the 25th pick of the seventh round to round out their 2017 draft.

Fuller is three-year starter at center for  the Bears including 13 starts as a senior as the first team AlL Big 12 selection. He anchored a Baylor line that blocked for the top rushing offense in the conference at 241.8 yards per game.

Head coach Bill O’Brien indicated in his post draft press conference that he can play both guard and center and is likely to compete at both positions when he joins the team in camp.

Fuller is the second center drafted in the last two seasons after the Texans took Nick Martin in the second round in 2016.

He is the second offensive lineman taken in the draft by the Texans after selecting Julie’n Davenport in the fourth round at pick 130.
