Trevardo Williams taken by Houston Texans in fourth round

Trevardo Williams, UConn's career leader in quarterback sacks, was taken by the Houston Texans with the 124th picks.

Williams becomes the fourth UConn player taken in the draft as Dwayne Gratz (Jacksonville), Sio Moore (Oakland) and Blidi Wreh-Wilson (Tennessee) went within seven picks in the third round last night.

Williams will likely have to move to outside linebacker after being a defensive end at UConn.

This  is the third time in the last five years that four UConn players have gone in the draft. In 2009 Donald Brown was taken with the 27th overall pick by Indianapolis to become the first and only UConn player to go in the first round. Darius Butler went 41st to New England while Will Beatty and Cody Brown went 60th and 63rd to the NewYork Giants and Arizona Cardinals. In 2011 Anthony Sherman (Arizona), Lawrence Wilson (Carolina), Jordan Todman (San Diego) and Greg Lloyd (Philadelphia) were all selected.
