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

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.

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.

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

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Jaylon Smith graded out as a Top 5 player before the knee injury. Pass rush ability, athleticism and pro size. Rare talent. Could be a steal for the Cowboys when he is fully healthy and back on the field. Smith is expected to sit during the 2016 season.

Brandon Chatmon ESPN Staff Writer 

Cleveland Browns second round pick Emmanuel Ogbah had 33 disrupted drop backs (sack/batted pass/INT/pass defended) and 24 sacks during the past two seasons, according to ESPN Stats and Information. Ogbah's 24 sacks were seven more than any other Big 12 player during that span. The former Oklahoma State defensive end had at least half a sack in 11 of 13 games as a junior before declaring early for the NFL.

Chris Fallica ESPN Staff Writer 

Kevin Dodd is the 4th Clemson defensive player selected in the 1st 2 rounds in the last 2 years (Vic Beasley, Stephone Anthony, Shaq Lawson)

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Browns land a pass rusher with the first pick of the 2nd round...Emmanuel Ogbah from Oklahoma State. 4.63 speed at 273 pounds. This could start a run on edge rushers coming off the board.
