David Anderson, who holds CSU’s career records for catches (222) and receiving yards (3,634), was selected by the Houston Texans in the seventh round of the NFL draft Sunday. He was the 30th wide receiver taken in the draft and selected with the 251st overall pick.
Anderson will be joining a team that already has a Colorado State connection. CSU safety Klint Kubiak is the son of Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak. Gary, who was named Texans head coach earlier this year, was with the Denver Broncos for more than 20 seasons.
Despite leading the Mountain West Conference in catches per game last season, Anderson was the fourth Mountain West receiver selected. Cory Rodgers of TCU (Green Bay Packers), Jeff Webb of San Diego State (Kansas City Chiefs), and Todd Watkins of BYU (Arizona Cardinals) were all drafted ahead of Anderson.
Anderson is the seventh receiver and the 92nd player in CSU history to be selected in the NFL draft. He is the first Ram to ever be selected by the Texans.
Quarterback Justin Holland and offensive lineman Mike Brisiel were not selected, making Anderson the only Ram drafted. H
