Did Ray Lewis really just say “What happens off the field comes back to you on the field”? Really?
No. 31: Denver chooses Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State. Sounds like Gruden hates him. ESPN showing a lowlight reel. Harsh.
No. 30: San Francisco gets Jimmie Ward, safety, Northern Illinois. The first 49er in 44 years to have no connection to Candlestick Park.
No. 29: Belichick picks Dominiqe Easley, DE, Florida. Let me guess: Ray Lewis loves his story.
No. 28: Panthers get WR Kelvin Benjamin, FSU (Free Seafood University).
No. 27: Cardinals take Deone Bucannon, safety, Washington State. You could almost hear the crowd saying “Who?”
No. 26: Eagles choose DE Marcus Smith, Louisville.
No. 25: The Chargers pick Jason Verrett, cornerback, TCU.
This just in: when he wears his reading gasses, Jon Gruden looks just like River Phoenix in “Explorers”.
No. 24: Bengals choose cornerback Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State.
No. 23: Kansas City just picked Dee Ford, DE, Auburn. Can’t help but feel the Chiefs would have picked Manziel if he’d been there.
ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio just said that a homeless person is responsible for the Browns drafting Manziel.
Manziel tells ESPN “It was all part of God’s plan.”
No. 22: Browns pick Johnny Manziel. COSTNER YOU GENIUS.
No. 21: Roger Goodell: “With the 21st pick in the NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers pick Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, safety, Alabama.” That right there was worth the wait.
Oh, @NFL_Access, you silly confused bastards. Brandin Cooks played for OREGON STATE.
With the 20th pick, the New Orleans Saints select WR Brandin Cooks, Oklahoma State

No. 19: Miami Dolphins choose Ja’Wuan James, OT Tennessee. Will he get Richie Incognito’s locker?
Jets pick Calvin Pryor, safety, Louisville.
No. 18: Jets pick BOOOOO.
Jets fans warming up their larynxes like athletes warming up their hamstrings.
No. 17: Ravens get C.J. Mosley, LB, Alabama.
No. 16: Cowboys pick Zack Martin, offensive guard, Notre Dame, to a rich, luxurious mixture of cheers and boos.
If Dallas takes Manziel, Twitter will explode and it will trigger The Rapture.
No. 15: Steelers get Ryan Shazier, linebacker, Ohio State. YOU’RE WITH ME SHAZIER.
Bears pick Kyle Fuller, DB, Virginia Tech. Jon Gruden: “He is a savage.”
No. 14: Chicago Bears PICK OF MYSTERY.
The Rams have selected DT Aaron Donald St. Louis took T Greg Robinson with its earlier pick( from RGIII trade) http://t.co/YmbIDJqLAr

Big day for Eric Ebron, eh?
— Sporting News (@sportingnews) May 8, 2014
No. 11: The Titans have picked Michigan OT Taylor Lewan.
Wait, here comes Barry Sanders (no walkup music). Sanders takes the mic and begins to sing. No … he’s announcing that the Lions have taken North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron.
No. 10: Detroit Lions PICK OF MYSTERY.
No. 9: Vikings select UCLA’s Anthony Barr, a linebacker.
No. 8: The Browns choose Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert. Manziel would have been an interesting pick here, no? You’re fired, Costner.
Browns trade back up, sending No. 9 pick (from Bills) and a No. 5 in 2015 to the Vikings.
No. 7: Tampa Bay takes 6-foot-5 WR Mike Evans of Texas A&M.
No. 6: The Atlanta Falcons take Texas A&M offensive tackle Jake Matthews.
No. 5: Raiders take linebacker Khalil Mack.
No. 4: The Bills choose Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins. Couldn’t the Browns have used him? Hmm.
The Browns traded the No. 4 pick to the Buffalo Bills. (Bills gave up ninth overall pick in this draft, plus first- and fourth-round picks in 2015).

Looks like Blake Bortles won't have to go far. With the No. 3 pick, the Jags stunningly take the UCF star QB! pic.twitter.com/fJ40KrHBBH

No. 2: The St. Louis Rams pick Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson.
