2012 NFL Draft Results: Michigan State's Keshawn Martin Goes To Houston Texans In Fourth Round

With the 121st draft in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans selected wide receiver Keshawn Martin out of Michigan State. Martin is the second wide receiver the Texans have added in the draft despite already having Andre Johnson, Kevin Walter, Jacoby Jones and Juaquin Iglesias under contract. On Friday in the third round, the Texans added DeVier Posey from Ohio State.

Martin is an All-Conference slot receiver who can be an effective return specialist, as well. He's a solid possession receiver, who knows how to get open, but he will struggle down field and in battles for the ball, as he's not the biggest receiver.

NFL Network's Mike Mayock likes the pick for the Texans, though, and Martin falls in the round he was projected to go.
