Su'A Cravens 53rd overall to Redskins. 1st time since 2002 the 1st USC player chosen is outside the Top 50. Of course in 2002 USC won the Orange Bowl, then won the National Title in 2003 and 2004

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Su'a Cravens is a moveable piece in the game plan. Projects as a LB in the Redskins base scheme, but his impact should come in nickel/dime situations. He's that hybrid defender. Rush and cover.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

LB Deion Jones is an ideal fit for the Falcons Cover 3 defensive scheme. Speed and range to drop in coverage, close on the ball.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Really interested to see if Christian Hackenberg can develop in the NFL with the Jets. Plenty of tools to work with. Size too. But a lot of inconsistent play on his college tape.

Chris Fallica ESPN Staff Writer 

Notre Dame with 4 players taken in the Top 50 for the 1st time since having 6 taken in the Top 50 in 1993.

Chris Fallica ESPN Staff Writer 

2nd time in the last 5 years Alabama has 5 players selected in the Top 50 - 2012 being the other instance.

The Titans like drafting Heisman Trophy winners! It is the 2nd straight year Tennessee has taken a Heisman winner.

SportsCenter @sportscenter

The Heisman Trophy winner is off the board! The Tennessee Titans draft RB Derrick Henry with the 45th pick.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Wouldn't want to square up RB Derrick Henry for 4 quarters. Beast. 4.5 speed. Wears down the defense. Look for the Titans to pound the rock with Henry and DeMarco Murray this season.

Brandon Chatmon ESPN Staff Writer 

New York Giants second round pick Sterling Shepard led the Big 12 with 61 receptions for first downs and had 20 third-down receptions, which also led the conference, in 2015. The former Oklahoma receiver was a quarterback's best friend during his four-year career with 54 receptions on third down plays (tying current Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett for the Big 12 lead) according to ESPN Stats and Information.

Chris Fallica ESPN Staff Writer 

And for the 2nd straight year, the Titans take the Heisman Trophy winner. Franchise also took Heisman-winning RB Eddie George and Earl Campbell in 1996 and 1978

Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter

Titans use 45th overall pick - which came from Rams - to select Alabama RB Derrick Henry, giving them back-to-back Heisman Trophy winners.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Jihad Ward had a great week at the Senior Bowl. Physical, strong at the point of attack. Think he can bump inside and produce some interior pressure. More defensive help for the Raiders.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Sterling Shepard is lightning quick coming out of his breaks. Smooth route runner too. He can win from the slot all day. Tough matchup. This is an upgrade for the Giants and Eli Manning.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Reggie Ragland has an old school game at LB. Downhill, physical, nasty. Showed some pass rush ability at the Senior Bowl too. Good pick for Rex Ryan and the Bills.

Brandon Chatmon ESPN Staff Writer 

Miami Dolphins second round pick Xavien Howard led the Big 12 with 33.5 disrupted drop backs (sacks/INT/batted passes/passes defensed) in 2015. The former Baylor cornerback had five interceptions as a junior before declaring early for the NFL.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Noah Spence didn't produce a great 40 time at the combine, but his game tape and Senior Bowl workouts tell the story. He can get off the ball. Multiple counter moves too. Solid edge rusher for the Bucs.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

CB Xavien Howard goes to the Dolphins. 6-foot, 201. Size and length. That's what every DB coach in the league wants. Play press. Challenge the release.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

If that knee holds up, Gus Bradley and the Jags just landed another defensive stud with Myles Jack. Jalen Ramsey on Day 1 and now Jack? Speed and athleticism. That's how you build a defense in today's game.

Chris Fallica ESPN Staff Writer 

Jags land Jalen Ramsey and Myles Jack with 1st and 2nd round picks - some could argue the two best defensive players in draft. Add in last years 1st round pick Dante Fowler, Jr and that's a good young defensive core
