The Texans have reportedly struck a deal with the first pick of the third round.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans have come to terms with tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz on a four-year contract.

The No. 65 overall pick, the 6-foot-5, 265-pound Fiedorowicz caught 91 passes for 899 yards and 10 touchdowns in four seasons at the University of Iowa (2010-2013). The Texans’ only 2014 draft pick at his position, Fiedorowicz figures to be no worse than the third tight end behind veterans Garrett Graham and Ryan Griffin.

“I’ll do whatever they ask in the blocking game. I did a lot of that at Iowa. I’m going to prove to the Texans that I can be a receiving player as well,” Fiedorowicz said after he was drafted, according to the club.

The Texans have reached deals with 8-of-10 draft picks. Linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, the No. 1 overall pick, remains unsigned, as does second-round pick Xavier Su’a-Filo, a guard from UCLA.

    He’d make a great puzzle for Wheel of Fortune. The contestants would have to go through every letter in the alphabet to figure that one out!

    He has hands as big as skillets; unfortunately, he catches like he’s wearing those skillets on his hands instead of receiver gloves.

    I’m excited about this guy but not crazy excited. 4.76 40 is rather slow. Dude’s got hands I feel like it was a reach pick because their qb was gone with the guy the pats got.. He’s sort of a copy of Scott Chandler.

    Iowa TE’s are historically solid in the league. Go Hawks!

    They call C.J. “Fiedorowi” for short.

    Good. Some of the reports from Rookie camp were very positive on this guy–looks like a lot of potential to be a good blocking TE. Perhaps O’Brien will use some two-TE sets like New England?

    Texans offense is going to look completely different this year expect to see alot of different players catching passses besides just andre. Should be fun to watch a QB have fun again!

    As a former Johnsburg Skyhawk parent, “fido” will do fine. The Texans can now be my AFC team! Good job CJ
