In AutoCAD, do you have access to the MapExport command?  This command will allow you to select individual lines, points and polygons in AutoCAD and export to a shapefile.  Which then could be exported to a feature class.

Feature Class to Feature Class GP Tool.

In the Where clause, select Layer "Includes the values(s)", then put check next to the values you want to export to the feature class.
