The Cardinals selected DT Robert Nkemdiche. Panthers on the clock. They could go defensive tackle with Alabama's A'Shawn Robinson or Jarran Reed, or Louisiana Tech's Vernon Butler. Or they could go defensive end with Clemson's Kevin Dodd or Oklahoma State's Emmanuel Ogbah. A wild card might be Alabama running back Derrick Henry.

How will Ezekiel Elliott fit with the Cowboys? "I think I can be a bell cow running back," he said. "I think late in the fourth quarter or on third down you know no one's going to have anything to worry about when you run that clock out."

If the Cardinals stay at 29th, they have a bevy of defensive linemen to choose from, including Alabama's Jarran Reed and A'Shawn Robinson.

NFL Thursday night opener between Panthers and Broncos could be Cam Newton vs rookie Paxton Lynch ... Unless Mark Sanchez has something to say about it.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Paxton Lynch fits the draft and develop narrative. He has the size and tools to play the position, but he isn't ready to take the ball as a rookie. Give him time to transition to a pro offense in Denver.

Sheil Kapadia ESPN Writer 

The Seattle Seahawks have traded the No. 26 pick to the Denver Broncos for No. 31 and No. 94 (third round). John Schneider has called this the deepest draft since he became GM. The team now has five picks in the top 100: Nos. 31, 56, 90, 94 and 97.

Denver's not trading for Colin Kaepernick nor Sam Bradford; it has traded for Seattle's pick at No. 26 to draft a quarterback.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Staff Writer 

Broncos traded their first-round and a third-round pick to Seahawks to make this pick.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

William Jackson has great speed, can play press and he finishes at the point of attack. Develop and improve the technique. He has all the tools to be a very good corner for the Bengals.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Denver has traded up right in front of the Packers. Seems like they're taking a quarterback, which leaves the Packers with plenty of defensive choices at No. 27.
