The Houston Texans swapped picks with New England on Friday and drafted Miami cornerback Brandon Harris with the 60th overall selection in the second round.
The Patriots acquired the Texans' third-round pick (73rd overall) and fifth-round pick (138th overall) in the deal.
Earlier in the second round, Houston took Arizona linebacker Brooks Reed with the 42nd overall pick.
The Texans took Wisconsin defensive end J.J. Watt with the 11th overall pick on Thursday night.
The Houston Texans have taken Arkansas State offensive tackle Derek Newton in the 7th round.
Earlier Saturday, the Texans took Virginia Tech cornerback Rashad Carmichael in the fourth round and Idaho safety Shiloh Keo and North Carolina quarterback T.J. Yates in the fifth round.
The Texans used the 152nd overall pick to nab Yates.
He's the sixth quarterback drafted by Houston and the first since Alex Brink was taken in the seventh round in 2008.
This year's Mr. Irrelevant is Rice defensive end Cheta Ozougwu.
The Houston Texans took Ozougwu with the 254th and final pick of the NFL draft Saturday.
The "irrelevant" moniker is traditionally given to the last pick.
The 6-foot-2, 255-pound Ozougwu is the second Rice player
drafted by the Texans.
He'll join tight end James Casey on the Houston roster.
Ozougwu was a first-team All-Conference USA selection last year and earned a 3.41 grade-point average in four years at Rice.
Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips vowed that the Texans would continue to use the draft to revamp the NFL's 30th-ranked defense.
