The final day of the National Football League draft ended with a player who was far from irrelevant in college being picked last. The sixth round is nearly over, so Kelly's been waiting a pretty long time to hear his name called. After winning a junior college championship at East Mississippi Community College, Kelly transferred to Ole Miss, where he played two seasons. Since 1976, the last pick in the draft has had a week devoted to him in Southern California.
Peppers still went in the first round anyway and Harbaugh is still hopeful that MI can set an NFL Draft record before the weekend is over. I'm just going to take it day-by-day and do whatever is asked of me to do to the best of my ability.
Trubisky became the 24th UNC player to be selected in the first round, but its first quarterback to be drafted that highly. In March, the Bears signed Mike Glennon to be their starting quarterback for at least 2017. Next came running back Tarik Cohen, who dominated FCS competition at North Carolina A&T. They went with an offensive lineman in the fifth round, drafting guard Jordan Morgan of Kutztown (Pa.).
He is also a talented pass catcher, as he was one of three Power-5 players targeted at least 70 times previous year without a drop, according to ESPN Stats & Info. To cap things off, NY dealt its sixth-round pick to Dallas for the Cowboys' fifth-rounder next year. But the selections of Stewart and Hansen shifted the spotlight to Eric Decker and the rest of the Jets receiving corps.
The Red Sox had some frustration to vent after losing the first two games of the series and veteran second baseman Dustin Pedroia to a knee injury in Friday's opener. That's baseball, man. I'm not mad at him. The Orioles visit Fenway for a four-game series next week, May 1-4. Xander Bogaerts and Andrew Benintendi opened the game with back-to-back singles, and Mookie Betts launched a three-run homer to left field.
He'll enter Game 5 with a 2.64 goals-against-average and a.923 save percentage. In the last two games especially, the Canadiens have done a good job of preventing the Rangers from using the up-tempo style they're best at, clamping down defensively and forcing NY to dump and chase.
