The biggest non-game on the American sporting calendar is all done, as the 2014 NFL draft wrapped up Saturday afternoon in New York. After arguably its worst draft in the modern era in 2013, the Big Ten performed better this year with 30 picks.

The first round of the 2014 NFL draft is in the books, and as expected, the Big Ten fared much better than it did a year ago. Four Big Ten players had their names called Thursday night at New York's Radio City Music Hall, although some waited a little longer than expected.

The 2014 NFL draft is just hours away, and unlike last year, the first night should be a lot better for the Big Ten. As Michigan's Taylor Lewan and most likely several other Big Ten players walk across the stage tonight, I thought it would be interesting to recall their recruiting stock coming out of high school.

Hodor. Jim Delany doesn't think there's anything risky about the Big Ten migration toward the East. Rutgers needs to apologize to Eric LeGrand, Steve Politi writes. Michigan coach Brady Hoke said he never had any issues with Taylor Lewan.

The NFL scouting combine is done, pro days are taking place around the Big Ten, and Todd McShay has another version of his NFL mock draft. Big Ten fans will have to scroll past the reshuffled top 10, as no players from the league appear -- despite some good performances from Taylor Lewan, Ra'Shede Hageman and others at the combine.

We're taking snapshots of each position group with each Big Ten team entering the spring. Up next: the defensive lines. Illinois: This is a significant concern for the Illini, especially after the recent departure of Houston Bates, who started last season at the Leo (defensive end/outside linebacker) spot.
