Tools

HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Texans have selected South Carolina safety D.J. Swearinger in the second round of the NFL draft.

Swearinger was taken 57th overall by Houston. He'll join a defense that added veteran safety Ed Reed in the off-season.

The senior started 12 games last season and finished with 79 tackles, two forced fumbles and seven pass breakups. He also returned an interception and a fumble for touchdowns.

The Texans went to defense in Round 2 after selecting Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins with the 27th overall pick on Thursday night.
