#NFL Draft: First Round Picks

@SportsBata ..nuff said

The #NFL Draft went through the first picks at Radio City Music Hall, last night! Stanford QB Andrew Luck went to the Colts at the #1 pick, Baylor QB RG3 went to the Redskins at #2, and ‘Bama RB Trent Richardson got picked up by the Cleveland Browns at the #3 pick! The Cowboys traded up to #6 to get Morris Claiborne out of LSU, touted to be the best CB on the board, and the #Jets snatched powerful DE (who can play the 3-4) Quinton Couples (NC) at #16! DE/LB Melvin Ingram (SC) went to the Chargers at #18, and many thought the #Jets should have grabbed him instead of Couples! The Patriots picked up ‘Cuse DE Chandler Jones at #21, ‘Bama ILB Dont’a Hightower as the #25 pick, and the #Giants grabbed RB David Wilson (VT) for the #32 and final pick of the first round! Check out photos from the event, full draft analysis, and #NFL Draft: First Round chart below!
