INDIANAPOLIS — After losing the coin toss with Atlanta today, the Texans will have the 20th pick in the first round of the April draft.
The Falcons will pick 19th and the Pittsburgh Steelers 18th.
In subsequent rounds, the Texans, Falcons and Steelers will alternate.
The Texans select 19th in the second round, 18th in the third, 20th in the fourth, 19th in the fifth, 18th in the sixth and 20th in the seventh.
The Texans own San Diego’s sixth-round pick because of the trade for defensive tackle Travis Johnson.
Barring a trade up, the Texans will enter the draft with their lowest first-round pick after finishing 9-7 last season.
Ken Fiore flipped a coin that had the Texans’ logo on one side and the Falcons’ logo on the other. Texans general manager Rick Smith and Falcons general manager Tom Dimitroff attended the coin flip at a downtown hotel.
