Indianapolis Colts third round pick Le'Raven Clark started all 51 games of his Texas Tech career. The former Red Raiders offensive tackle was part of an offensive line that allowed just 27 sacks. Fun fact: Clark scored two 2-point conversions in 2015, running in a lateral against Kansas on a designed play then catching a batted Patrick Mahomes pass and converting against Oklahoma State.

The Cowboys wanted defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah in second round, and if they had gotten him they were going to try to trade back into the second round to acquire Jaylon Smith. He was always in their plans to take in the second round.

Here are the Cowboys' picks so far through two rounds: 1. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State; 2. Jaylon Smith, LB, Notre Dame; 3. Maliek Collins, DT, Nebraska. Unless they move back into the third round, they will have six picks Saturday with two in the fourth and four in the sixth.

The Cowboys went with defense for their second straight pick but expect to get production this year out of this one in Nebraska defensive tackle Maliek Collins with the 67th pick in the draft. Collins was more productive in 2014 (14 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks) than in 2015 (seven tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks). He is the pure three-technique that Rod Marinelli likes.

Strong consistent pressure by the Stars. Brian Elliott keeping Blues in this game. Poor second periods continue to plague Blues.

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.

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.
