Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Texans have signed first-round pick CB Kevin Johnson to a four-year.

  • The Texans also signed seventh-round selection RB Kenny Hilliard to a four-year agreement as well.

Johnson wound up being the second cornerback to come off the board and gives the Texans a much deeper group of cornerbacks heading into the 2015 season.
