Kenneth Dixon is a Plinko runner -- bounces off contact and keeps going downhill -- and could be a steal for the Ravens. The No. 3 RB on Mel Kiper's final board, he comes off at No. 132.

Joe Dahl's selection by the Lions can't bode well for Corey Robinson, the offensive tackle taken with last year's seventh-round pick. Robinson didn't do much last year and now has even more competition to deal with.

New Saints DT David Onyemata's college coach from Manitoba, Brian Dobie, said they call him "Cinderella" in Canada. The Nigerian-born player had never even held a football until he was in Dobie's office looking to try out for the football team in 2011. ... Said Onyemata's pro day, which drew 17 NFL teams, was probably the biggest in the history of Canada and him being drafted is "national news."

Paul Perkins is all-time UCLA leader in receptions by a RB (80). Led Pac-12 in rush plays of 10 or more yards in 2014 (46). Absolute steal by the Giants.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan claimed they're not actively pursuing any veteran quarterback. He said their focus is Ryan Fitzpatrick. "I would say simply to dispel anything, we're not at this point in time in any discussions with any teams for any other quarterbacks," he said. "I can put that to bed at this point in time." Doesn't sounds like they're after Nick Foles.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears used their fifth-round pick (150) on Indiana RB Jordan Howard. Chicago prefers the running back-by-committee approach. Howard is expected to compete with Ka'Deem Carey and Jacquizz Rodgers for playing time behind Jeremy Langford. Remember, Langford is a former fourth-round pick. There is precedent here for Howard to have a major impact in the Bears' backfield.

With the 149th pick, the Giants select UCLA running back Paul Perkins, known as a quick-cutting runner who can catch the ball. Not a bell-cow type, but can fill a role as part of a RB committee, which you know the Giants like.

How did linebacker Blake Martinez have a Packers hat on immediately after the Packers picked him in the fourth round?: "My dad bought every hat he could possibly find of all 32 teams just in case," Martinez said. "So he was ready."

Oklahoma cornerback Zack Sanchez says the Panthers were the team that showed the most interest in him. He recently said, "I'm the best defensive playmaker in the draft, hands down." Carolina for him at No. 141 in the fifth round.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Wide receiver Demarcus Robinson was picked by the Chiefs despite numerous suspensions at Florida, most for failed drug tests early in his collegiate career. Chiefs scout Ryne Nutt on Robinson: "We feel like he's matured. We feel like he's gotten humbled. Just the growth in the kid kind of sold itself . . . Teammates loved this kid. This is a kid that's going to come in and he's going to do anything you ask. He's going to work his butt off. He's not a diva. He doesn't demand football."

Doug Whaley says he was surprised to see Cardale Jones return to Ohio State last season, but that "it worked out in our favor."

Doug Whaley says Cardale Jones will begin his Bills career as their No. 3 QB. Whaley believes Jones has "a lot of work" to be franchise QB but has the talent to get there.

RB Kenneth Dixon was one of the best players on the field during Senior Bowl workouts. Power, quicks and receiving skills. Showed some burst too. This is a very good pick for the Ravens.

Mike Reiss ESPN New England Patriots reporter 

The Patriots and Dolphins have struck a rare AFC East draft-day trade. Patriots move into the fifth round (147) in exchange for two sixth-rounders (196, 204) and one seventh-rounder (250). This could be the spot that the Patriots eye Navy QB/RB/WR Keenan Reynolds.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Staff Writer 

With fourth round pick -- 136th overall -- Broncos selected Utah running back Devontae Booker. Great value in that spot.

The Cowboys have their quarterback, selecting Missisissippi State's Dak Prescott with the 135th pick in the draft. He is the first quarterback the Cowboys have drafted since taking Stephen McGee in the fourth round of the 2009 draft. The Cowboys did extensive work on Prescott leading up to the draft and had him at Valley Ranch for a pre-draft visit.

Saints' new DT David Onyemata is from Nigeria and never played football until he moved to Canada in 2011. Said he tried out for the team later that year because he wanted something to do in his free time -- then fell in love with the game.
