CHICAGO — Will Fuller’s early exit from Notre Dame landed him in the first round of the NFL Draft.

The Houston Texans selected Fuller with the 21st pick Thursday night.

Fuller, a 6-foot, 182-pound wide receiver from Philadelphia, became the second first-round pick from Notre Dame after offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley was selected No. 6 by the Baltimore Ravens.

The last time two Notre Dame players were drafted in the first round came in 2012 when wide receiver Michael Floyd (No. 13) and safety Harrison Smith (No. 29) were selected by the Arizona Cardinals and Minnesota Vikings.

Fuller caught 138 passes for 2,352 yards and 29 touchdowns in his last two seasons at Notre Dame. He chose to leave the Irish following his junior year.
