Former Michigan running back Karan Higdon was not a selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, but he was picked up by a team shortly after the final pick was announced.
Per a statement on Higdon’s Instagram, he will be joining the Houston Texans:

Higdon finished his senior season with 1,178 yards and 10 TD’s. The Texans aren’t particularly deep at running back, so Higdon should have a chance to compete for carries this season if he makes the team.
Congrats to Higdon, who now has a chance to fulfill his dream of becoming a pro.
