2012 NFL Draft Update: Texans Select Randy Bullock, Kicker From Texas A&M

The Houston Texans entered the 2012 NFL Draft without a kicker on their roster, after Neil Rackers signed a one-year deal with the Washington Redskins on Tuesday. The Texans looked to the draft to address their vacancy Saturday, selecting Randy Bullock from Texas A&M in the fifth round with the 161st overall pick.

In 2011, Bullock won the Lou Groza award as the nation's preeminent placekicker, along with consensus first-team All-American honors. During Bullock's senior season he was 25-of-29 on field goal attempts and made all of his 51 extra point tries. His 127 points scored in 2011 was one short of the Texas A&M record set by Joel Hunt way back in 1927, when the in-play dropkick was a viable strategy.
