@JJOE2424 announces the moment Jalen Pitre became a Texan.
— Houston Texans (@HoustonTexans) April 29, 2022
Former Pro Bowl cornerback Johnathan Joseph announced the Houston Texans’ selection of former Baylor Bears safety Jalen Pitre Friday night during Round 2 of the 2022 NFL draft.
The Texans used their No. 37 overall selection to shore up their secondary with Pitre, who played his high school football in nearby Stafford, Texas, in the Greater Houston area.
The Texans used their first pick of the draft at No. 3 overall in Round 1 to take cornerback Derek Stingley from LSU. With the selection of Pitre, the Texans are infusing younger talent into their backend that should strengthen coach Lovie Smith’s Tampa 2 scheme in the future.
