AMES, Iowa – Iowa State wide receiver Xavier Hutchinson was drafted Saturday by the Houston Texans in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft with the 205th pick.

Hutchinson is the second Cyclone selected in this draft, joining teammate Will McDonald, who was a first round pick Thursday by the New York Jets. 

Hutchinson, a Jacksonville, Florida, native, had arguably the best season by a wide receiver in school history. He was a First Team All-American and a Biletnikoff Award Finalist after catching a school record 107 receptions.

Hutchinson became the first player in Big 12 history to lead the league in receptions three consecutive seasons and finished his career with a school-record 254 catches, the most-ever by a Big 12 player in just three seasons.

Iowa State defensive back Anthony Johnson Jr. was drafted Saturday by the Green Bay Packers in the seventh round of the 2023 NFL Draft with the 242nd pick.

Johnson is the third Cyclone selected in this draft, joining teammates Will McDonald IV, first round pick Thursday by the New York Jets, and Xavier Hutchinson, who went earlier Saturday to the Houston Texans.

Johnson, a St. Petersburg, Florida, native, made the switch to safety in 2022 after playing his first four seasons as a Cyclone at cornerback.

In his career, Johnson was the Big 12’s iron man, making a Big 12 record 54 career starts. He played in 62 career games, the second-most in school history.

Johnson compiled 243 career tackles, including 14.0 for a loss, and three sacks in his career. He broke up 28 passes in his career and had two interceptions and five forced fumbles.
