A little later than most people expected, the Texans have drafted a quarterback.
Tom Savage, whose college career saw him move from Rutgers to Arizona to Pitt, was chosen with a compensatory pick in the fourth round, No. 135 overall.
Savage is the kind of big-armed pocket passer that Texans coach Bill O’Brien loves, and he looks like a good fit in O’Brien’s offense. However, Savage also needs some time to develop and is very unlikely to be the starter in Week One — and probably not at any point in his rookie year.
