2011 NFL Draft Results: Patriots Trade Down, Texans Select Brandon Harris

Stop me if you've heard this before: The New England Patriots have traded down. In a move that should be call the Bill Belichick, the Patriots unloaded the 60th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft on Houston, picking up the Texans 3rd and 5th round picks in return.

With the pick, the Texans selected Brandon Harris, a defensive back from Miami. Harris is undersized but athletic, making up from his lack of size with impressive physical abilities.

Houston is clearly getting defensive in this draft, taking J.J. Watt and Brooks Reed to book-end its 3-4 defense and Harris to work in the defensive backfield.
