The expansion Houston Texans will make the first choice of the 2002 National Football League Draft on April 20-21 in New York. The order of the 2002 Draft was announced today by the NFL.

The Texans' choice will be followed by the Carolina Panthers picking second and Detroit Lions third.
Draft-order ties are resolved by the cumulative record of each team's opponents. The team with the weaker opponents receives drafting priority.

Within a tied segment, non-playoff clubs are given priority over playoff clubs. Priority of playoff clubs within a tied segment will be based on their advancement in the playoffs, but they will not drop out of their tied segment unless they participate in the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl champion will select 32nd and the runner-up 31st.
