The Pride of Chariton, TJ Hockenson, Goes Top Ten in NFL Draft

We got good players past year at the start of the second round.

They will get the Redskins second round pick this year (46th overall) and their second round pick next year.

Barring any trades, the Lions have a total of nine draft picks across the seven rounds.

"Some of those guys are still on the board", Ballard told reporters after the conclusion of the first round.

The lone cornerback taken in the first round was Georgia's DeAndre Baker, who was selected 30th overall by the New York Giants, and that is very good news for the Texans because they are in need of adding to their secondary at the cornerback position. Simply put, if he plays to his potential, this is a huge pickup for the Jags as he was one of the draft's top-3 players.

"It's been a long night as you all know, " he said.

The first night of the 2019 draft kicked off Thursday in Nashville, Tennessee with Commissioner Roger Goodell accompanied by Pro Football Hall of Fame receiver Tim Brown, Hall of Fame defensive tackle Joe Greene and Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota. "I talked to a lot of guys, but seriously I thought after, right about midway point there, that's where you were going to probably get the guys you had targeted". If the team stands pat and keeps the seventh pick in the first round, here is how our staff predicts the choice to be.

"This is an exciting day for us here in Houston", O'Brien said. "I'm going to come in with the mindset of being very coachable". But there was no shock when Roger Goodell announced the No. 1 pick and Kyle Murray was selected by the Arizona Cardinals, giving Oklahoma and Lincoln Riley its second straight No. 1 overall selection.

Before the draft, Quinn was asked about how fans may react to taking a tight end with the No. 8 pick in the wake of the disappointment over Ebron. "I was just thanking God and I'm just ready to get to work". Here's a look at New England's picks - along with the other selections that pertain to the Patriots.

And with a league-high five day two picks, the Patriots are in the driver's seat on Friday with some exciting names still on the board.

There's also the possibility that the Patriots may select a quarterback, with Brady set to turn 42 years old in August. He's the best blocking tight end in the draft and he has the size and speed to be a top pass catcher.
