Will Anderson Jr. selected No. 3 by Houston Texans

The Houston Texans have selected Will Anderson Jr. with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The Texans traded up to No. 3 to select Anderson, their second pick of the night. Houston is sending No. 12, No. 33, a 2024 first and a 2024 third to Arizona for No. 3 and No. 105. Anderson provides immediate pass-rushing upside for a defense that lacks a dominant edge defender. New head coach DeMeco Ryans gets his stone defensively to build around going forward.
