The Redskins select linebacker/safety Su'a Cravens from USC. Cravens is small at 6-foot-1, 225 pounds but he gives the Redskins a hybrid player.

Now within 10 picks of Patriots' first selection of the draft at No. 60, and then No. 61, and the players I'm watching closely are Utah RB Devontae Booker, Nebraska OT Alex Lewis, Rutgers WR Leonte Carroo, Maryland CB Sean Davis, Alabama CB Cyrus Jones, Clemson CB T.J. Green, Clemson CB Mackensie Alexander, Texas DT Hassan Ridgeway, and Michigan State LB Shilique Calhoun, among others.

Scoreless first between Stars and Blues. No goals but plenty of scoring chances. Stars doubled St. Louis in shots, 14-7. Goalie Kari Lehtonen sharp early for the Stars.

And as I write that: Yoenis Cespedes clubs a grand slam, giving the Mets 12 runs in the inning -- their biggest in franchise history. Mike Broadway has nothing for the Giants in relief of Jake Peavy but he's going to have to take one for the team.

The Houston Texans are loading up on Notre Dame players. Center Nick Martin is next, filling a major need for the Texans after the departure of Ben Jones in free agency. This doesn't solve all their offensive line problems, but it's a good start. Martin also has versatility that Texans coach Bill O'Brien covets.

Raptors up 44-40 at the half. Paul George is just 1/6 from the field. As a team, the Pacers are just 14/43. Raptors outscoring Pacers 14-6 in second chance points.

Derrick Henry is the fourth RB drafted by the Titans since 2014, most in the NFL. The 49ers and Texans drafted three. That's not a good development in the NFL circa 2016.

After trading up to No. 48 overall, the Packers take Indiana tackle Jason Spriggs. Heard he was a possibility in the first round. The Packers gave up their second rounder (No. 57), fourth rounder (No. 125) and seventh rounder (No. 248).

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears are coming up in second round (No. 49) after trade with Buffalo. A strong name to consider is Ohio State safety Vonn Bell. Chicago needs help in the secondary, and Bell is a versatile player who projects at either safety or corner in the NFL.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

Saints throw a slight curveball with 47th pick – Ohio State WR Michael Thomas – but only because he doesn't play defense. He's a great fit for what they need in that receiving corps after releasing big receiver Marques Colston. Thomas is 6-foot-3, 212 pounds and a nice complement to smaller starters Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead.

Right now the 49ers are introducing their two first round picks, DeForest Buckner and Joshua Garnett. First impression? They are BIG (and well spoken).

Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli admits it will be tough to be patient to wait for second round pick Jaylon Smith but, "his play just leaps off the tape," Marinelli said. He called Smith an elite player and one who could be the best player in the draft next year.
