With the 195th pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Texans select Xavier Crawford, defensive back from Central Michigan. ESPN had the following to say:

Crawford is an undersized corner with short arms who ran well at the combine and exceptionally well at his pro day. He reads the quarterback and plays the ball, not the man. He competes in press coverage, but his short arms make it tougher for him to gets his hands on receivers. Crawford is faster than he is quick, but he’s an erratic tackler who gets stuck on blocks. had the following to say:

Long, thin press corner with the agility, foot quickness and balance to allow for stickier coverage. Crawford’s average speed and slim frame could make him a target downfield. His ability to hound routes underneath is impressive, but he doesn’t have the size or demeanor for frequent run support. Crawford’s athleticism and ability to stay connected to routes gives him a shot as a backup cornerback either outside or from the slot.

The Texans will pick in the seventh round, and make their last pick at #220.
