New Panthers cornerback James Bradford out of Samford didn't expect to go in the second round, either. "Uh, not really. I actually was fixing my mom's toilet." That didn't go as well as the draft.

The Browns took DE Carl Nassib from Penn State with the 65th pick. Nassib is a former walk-on who played five years at Penn State.

As the third round begins, the Browns are one pick from being on the clock. They have three of the first 13 picks in this round.

Bankers Life Fieldhouse is rocking. Pacers start 4th on a 6-0 run -- lead by 13 with 10:38 left in regulation. Vogel wanted his group to remember what they did in Game 5 to build the lead -- looks like they learned their lesson.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey went with his Game 5 small lineup to start the fourth. 6-0 Pacers run and a 13-point Toronto deficit.

Uh oh. Bengals pick Tyler Boyd, a Pennsylvania native and Pitt standout: "I was always a Steelers fan." But now, "I'm going to sacrifice my body for the team that drafted me." Says he has pics of him as a kid wearing an old Hines Ward jersey. He's all about Bengals now.

Here are the Panthers' picks through Round 2: 1. Vernon Butler, DT, Louisiana Tech, 30th overall pick 2. James Bradberry, CB, Samford, 62nd overall pick. Carolina's next pick is No. 93 in the third round.

Saints double-dip from Ohio State in Round 2. They took safety Vonn Bell with the 61st pick after trading up with the Patriots. Back to defense, which is their biggest need. ESPN's Mel Kiper loves his coverage skills for a safety -- and said he could conceivably play cornerback.

Pacers 71 Raptors 64 end 3. Indiana outscored Toronto 31-20 in the quarter. Toronto is 6-for-22 from 3-point range and shooting 36.1 percent. Cory Joseph has 13 points off the bench.

Patriots select Alabama CB Cyrus Jones with the No. 60 pick, then trade No. 61. Jones was identified as a "favorite five" option for the team entering the draft. He is a high-intangibles prospect who factors into the return game.

Seahawks second-round pick Jarran Reed will carry the Skittles torch from Marshawn Lynch. "It was crazy because I was chewing on the Skittles when I got called," he said during a FaceTime interview with the media. "And I was just thinking like, 'Man, Marshawn loves the Skittles.'" Reed flashed the candy wrapper to the camera as he walked to the podium in Chicago.

Mike Reiss ESPN New England Patriots reporter 

With starting CBs Malcolm Butler and Logan Ryan entering the final year of their contracts, Patriots going defense at No. 60.

Kevin Seifert NFL Nation 

PKs in the second round aren't that abnormal. There was Mike Nugent in 2005. And Jason Hanson in 1992. And Chip Lohmiller in 1988. And John Lee in 1986. Basically once a decade or so. Bold move for the Bucs.

Field Yates @FieldYates

Roberto Aguayo just became the first kicker drafted in the top 2 rounds since the Jets took Mike Nugent in the 2nd round in 2005.

Patriots are on the clock with back to back picks at No. 60'and 61.

Halftime score: Heat 59, Hornets 50. Funny how things turn out. After saying before the game how much their offensive outbursts in Games 1 and 2 were an aberration, Joe Johnson and the Miami Heat had their most prolific half in a week. Miami shot 60 percent in the half. They finished no better than 42 percent in any of the three previous games they lost after taking a 2-0 series lead. Luol Deng with 16 points and Dwyane Wade with 13 to lead Miami.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

If the Jets re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick or another veteran of his ilk, it means the Jets will have four quarterbacks. Can't keep 'em all. Obviously, they don't have much faith in Geno Smith or Bryce Petty. Christian Hackenberg becomes the new golden child.
