How about the Jags? Gus Bradley is loading up on defense. CB, LB and now a pass rusher with Ngakoue.

Safety Kevin Byard gets to work with Titans safeties coach Steve Jackson. He's a great teacher. Technique, technique, technique. And he preaches toughness. Great spot for a rookie. That's how you develop.

Cyrus Jones is the 8th Nick Saban-coached player the Patriots have selected under Belichick, most of any college coach during that time.

Nick Saban's first season at Alabama was 2007. From the 2007-15 drafts, 12 Alabama DBs have been drafted, and none have been to Pro Bowl.

Alabama and Clemson played for national title in 2015, Ohio State won title in 2014, the 3 have combined for 15 of the 1st 57 picks (26% of all picks come from 3 teams)

Brandon Chatmon ESPN Staff Writer 

Chicago Bears second round pick Cody Whitehair started games at left tackle, right tackle and left guard during his career as a four-year starter at Kansas State. He started every game at left tackle during his final two seasons, earning second team All-Big 12 honors as a junior and first team All-Big 12 honors as a senior.

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.

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.

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.
