NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans native Garret Wallow is 170th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The former John Curtis Patriot was selected in the sixth round by the Houston Texans from TCU.

Wallow, a former safety-turned-linebacker, used increased size at 230 pounds with excellent footspeed to develop into a solid blitzing linebacker with 50 solo tackles – nine for a loss – to lead the Horned Frogs defense in 2020.

The 6-foot-2, 230-pounder also recorded 90 total tackles – second in the Big 12 – en route to earning his second First Team All-Big 12 honor.
