Note: Moving from the No. 2 media market to the No. 1, Evans caught a pass in 28 straight games to end his career.
Note: Room for improvement after switching from safety to cornerback in his final season at Utah.
Note: Draft stock took a hit from slow 40 time and diminished value of running backs in the NFL after running for more than 1,800 yards in his final two seasons.
You already know! Happy to be part of the fam! RT @LanceBriggs: What a draft! Chicago welcome fellow Wildcat and Bear, Ka'Deem Carey!

Note: Left early to become first ASU linebacker drafted since Travis Goethel in 2010 (Raiders).
Note: Perhaps more so than any other from the conference, it will be interesting to see how his game -- based mostly on speed -- translates to the NFL.

Note: Penn State transfer was one of two Cal players to get drafted (Richard Rodgers).
Note: No surprise here. Chip Kelly has not shied away from taking Ducks and Pac-12 players.
So proud to be a Philadelphia Eagle and reunite with coach kelly!

LB Jordan Zumwalt, UCLA: Pittsburgh Steelers, No. 192
Note: On the surface it's a perfect fit. Zumwalt's blue-collar reputation should mesh well in Pittsburgh.
Note: Good chance to make the roster as a third-down back.

Note: Was a 24th-round pick of the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2012, but put baseball dreams on hold to pursue football.
