Current 2013 NFL Draft order: Texans locked in at 27th

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

The order for the 2013 NFL Draft is almost completely set, with just the Ravens and 49ers left for the last two places. The Texans will select 27th.

The Houston Texans' spot in the 2013 NFL Draft has been set ever since they lost to the Patriots in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. The Texans will have the No. 27 pick in the draft, but the Ravens' and 49ers' positions in the draft are still uncertain. The winner of the Super Bowl will select 32nd and the loser will pick 31st.

With losses in the conference championships last week, the Patriots and Falcons will select 29th and 30th in the draft respectively.

Since the Texans had the second-best regular season record among Divisional Round losers, they were placed at No. 27 in the draft order, one spot below where they selected Whitney Mercilus last year. Mercilus only started four games, but notched six sacks and two forced fumbles.

It is clear there is plenty of talent available at the bottom of the first round, but Battle Red Blog suggests the Texans consider trading up into the top five. At Mocking the Draft, they predict Houston will select Georgia nose tackle John Jenkins with the 27th pick.
