The Houston Texans selected Ohio State WR Braxton Miller with the No. 85 overall pick in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: The Texans continue to add to their new offense. DeAndre Hopkins, Kyle Fuller on the other side and Miller in the slot will be a potent combination. Footballguy Andrew Garda is covering the draft and says he's hearing the team is very down on Jaelen Strong and if he doesn't prove himself soon, might struggle to survive the year or perhaps even make the final roster.

The Carolina Panthers selected CBs Daryl Worley and James Bradberry in the second and third rounds of the 2016 NFL draft, as they attempt to replace CB Josh Norman, now with the Washington Redskins.

The Atlanta Falcons selected Stanford TE Austin Hooper with the No. 81 overall pick in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: A solid route-runner, who is a bit of a move-tight end only, but could develop into a blocker as well. We'll see if they Falcons try to integrate him into the offense like they used to with Tony Gonzalez, though Hooper isn't in the same class.

Philadelphia Eagles C Isaac Seumalo, the team's third round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, training in Southern California before the draft with his new teammate, QB Carson Wentz.

The Miami Dolphins selected Alabama RB Kenyan Drake with the No. 73 overall pick in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

  Chargers | Hunter Henry headed for big workload?    Fri Apr 29, 09:44 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Hunter Henry's blocking ability will allow him to contribute right away before replacing TE Antonio Gates as the primary pass-catching tight end down the road, and beat writer Michael Gehlken believes Henry could see more snaps this season than Gates.

Footballguys view: He can catch the ball but he's a great run blocker, which will put him on the field a lot with Philip Rivers.

  Raiders | Jihad Ward does not need surgery    Fri Apr 29, 09:35 PM

The Oakland Raiders do not believe DE Jihad Ward (knee), their second-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, will need arthroscopic surgery. At least two teams felt he would require surgery.

Footballguys view: It's a bit shaky, but we think Ward is worth the risk. He's very raw but can play both end spots and has above average athleticism.

  Jets | No talks between Jets, Ryan Fitzpatrick    Fri Apr 29, 09:32 PM

The last time free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets had any meaningful talks was 'weeks ago,' according to one source.

Footballguys view: As we thought. At this point, there's not going to be movement, as the Jets are firmly set in moving on. They certainly aren't going to add more to their offer.

  Cowboys | Jaylon Smith familiar with team doc    Fri Apr 29, 09:31 PM

Dallas Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith (knee), selected in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, had knee surgery one week after the Fiesta Bowl. The team's physician, Dr. Dan Cooper, performed the operation.

Footballguys view: It explains a little why they overlooked his long recovery, but we still think this was too early and for too little immediate return.

The New Orleans Saints selected Ohio State SS Vonn Bell with the No. 61 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: Bell is an intriguing safety who can cover a receiver almost as well as some corners.

  Jets | Christian Hackenberg's footwork improving     Fri Apr 29, 09:22 PM

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg's footwork was much better in private workouts after he worked with quarterback coach Jordan Palmer, according to sources.

Footballguys view: We'll see because it's when he faces live bodies that things go to pot. This is going to take a while and the Jets - as well as their fans - have to be patient.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Florida State PK Roberto Aguayo with the No. 59 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: The Bucs not only drafted a kicker in the second round, they traded up to do it. Let us repeat. They traded UP....to draft a KICKER. This is the weirdest draft ever.

The Chicago Bears selected Kansas State OG Cody Whitehair with the No. 56 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: The Bears add to their offensive line to help keep Jay Cutler upright and functioning. Whitehair will be a guard and should step in right away.

The Cincinnati Bengals selected Pittsburgh WR Tyler Boyd with the No. 55 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: A good returner who can run sharp routes. He isn't fast but he has tremendous hands and could be a very nice slot addition.

The Minnesota Vikings selected CB Mackensie Alexander with the No. 54 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: This is an excellent pick, and Alexander is a tough corner who can shut down part of the field. The Vikings have an up and coming defense.

  Jets | Christian Hackenberg should sit first year    Fri Apr 29, 09:01 PM

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg is expected to sit and grow in his first season in the NFL. If free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is re-signed, it could very well only be a one-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: He's going to have to wait because he's absolutely not ready now. As for Fitzpatrick, he has a choice to either retire as threatened or take the only offer he's had in what the Jets put out there. He would be a great fill in for the year, but his pride might be in the way.

  Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill impressing head coach    Fri Apr 29, 08:56 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has impressed head coach Adam Gase so far in this young offseason. 'I didn't realize how live his arm is,' Gase said. 'The more I watch him throw, it's effortless. That ball travels down the field pretty good. He's hit some big plays, just underneath having some touch; it's been good to see things live.'

Footballguys view: It seems like we hear this every single year. When will Tannehill really improve? We're not holding our breath. We figure he's a low-end QB2 or QB3 this year until we see some actual improvement.

  Titans | Derrick Henry viewed as other workhorse    Fri Apr 29, 08:49 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry could be a second workhouse running back for the Titans in addition to RB DeMarco Murray, according to general manager Jon Robinson. Robinson hopes there will be enough carries for both to be workhorses and help shorten the game.

Footballguys view: If Murray stumbles early, Henry could take over and be a very effective back. For now we think both backs will limit each other's value.

  Jets | Christian Hackenberg to Jets    Fri Apr 29, 08:45 PM

The New York Jets selected Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg with the No. 51 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: Someone check on Andrew Garda and Chase Stuart as they may be on a ledge somewhere. It might be a crowded ledge if Twitter is an indication. Hackenberg is scared of shadows after a pounding behind Penn State's inadequate line but the Jets must think they can fix that. He could sit behind Geno Smith or another veteran, but we don't expect it to be Ryan Fitzpatrick who just had his "retire or bust" buff called.

The Seattle Seahawks selected Alabama DT Jarran Reed with the No. 49 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29. The Seahawks traded up with the Chicago Bears for the selection.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks made a heck of a pick to snag Reed at this point in the draft. He's a beast in the middle and should step right in to a significant role.

  Bills | Reggie Ragland to compete in the middle    Fri Apr 29, 08:28 PM

Buffalo Bills LB Reggie Ragland will compete with LBs Preston Brown and Zach Brown for the starting middle linebacker spot in the Bills' 3-4 defense. General manager Doug Whaley views Ragland as a leader, though, and will bring something to the defense the Bills need, according to Whaley.

Footballguys view: They didn't take him for his singing voice, so we assume that the Bills have plans for him. Further, the linebackers were bad last year so every position could be up for grabs.

Footballguys view: The Packers always need line help and have four lineman in contract years. Spriggs is an athletic tackle who might start off as a guard.

  Saints | Michael Thomas taken by New Orleans    Fri Apr 29, 08:24 PM

The New Orleans Saints selected Ohio State WR Michael Thomas with the No. 47 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: Thomas is a competitor who will go fight for a ball, and has a real "my ball" mentality. Drew Brees may use him as a replacement for the departed Jimmy Graham.

  Dolphins | Daniel Thomas familiar with offense    Fri Apr 29, 08:20 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas already knows the offensive terminology and what to expect, according to head coach Adam Gase. Gase added that Thomas is a step ahead of everyone in meetings, too, as Thomas played under Gase when they were both with the Chicago Bears.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins say Jay Ajayi is the man there, but we wouldn't be shocked if Thomas had a nice-sized role as well. Whether it will kill Ajayi's fantasy value or not remains to be seen.

The Detroit Lions selected Alabama DT A'Shawn Robinson with the No. 46 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: A big, powerful defensive tackle who can help fill out a position the Lions are a bit thin at.

The Tennessee Titans selected Alabama RB Derrick Henry with the No. 45 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: The Heisman trophy winner is a huge back, and is a brutal guy to take down. Tennessee is going to ride him and use him to batter defenses. This is a team that will commit to the run to help keep Marcus Mariota from having to do everything. Unfortunately, with DeMarco Murray there, we may see a split backfield which kills everyone's value.

The Baltimore Ravens selected Boise State LB Kamalei Correa with the No. 42 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

  Dolphins | Jay Ajayi viewed as starter     Fri Apr 29, 07:57 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is viewed as the starter in the eyes of head coach Adam Gase. 'He knows he's the starter,' Gase said. 'He's showing me a lot of great things. I like his skill set. He's impressd me more both days [of practice].'

Footballguys view: They planned on Ajayi taking over at some point, and we think he could be productive if the rest of the offense and the line can step up this year. Right now our very early prediction is RB2.

The Chicago Bears traded the 41st overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for the 49th overall pick, a 2016 fourth-round pick and a 2017 fourth-round draft choice. The Bills picked LB Reggie Ragland with the selection.

The Buffalo Bills selected Alabama LB Reggie Ragland with the No. 41 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29. The Bills traded up with the Chicago Bears for the selection.

Footballguys view: Ragland is an aggressive presence in the middle of a linebacker group and the Bills need some help shutting the middle of the field down. Ryan has addressed the linebackers with two big picks there and now has to work on the rest of the defense.

  Giants | G-Men go with WR 40th overall    Fri Apr 29, 07:51 PM

The New York Giants selected Oklahoma WR Sterling Shepard with the No. 40 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: A bit small, he might be a solid slot receiver on a team that lacks a playmaker there. He can also return kicks and punts, an area the team has wanted to address.

  Buccaneers | Noah Spence drafted by Bucs    Fri Apr 29, 07:48 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Eastern Kentucky LB Noah Spence with the No. 39 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: Spence dropped because of old drug concerns and the Bucs benefited. A hard worker who can get after the quarterback, Spence will be a huge part of this defense.

The Kansas City Chiefs selected Mississippi State DT Chris D. Jones with the No. 37 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: Jones is a bit inconsistent, but with Dontari Poe in the last year of a contract, the team needs to look for potential replacements.

Footballguys view: A very Rex Ryan pick as Ragland is a thumper who will help shore the middle up. Last season the linebackers were a joke and now they have added two potential impact players at the position.

The Baltimore Ravens traded the 36th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for the 38th overall pick and the 146th overall pick. The Jaguars picked LB Myles Jack with the selection.

Footballguys view: Baltimore didn't see anything they liked and moved. With the depth of defensive talent, they can use later picks just as effectively.

  Jaguars | Myles Jack goes 36th overall    Fri Apr 29, 07:32 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars selected UCLA LB Myles Jack with the No. 36 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29. The Jaguars traded up with the Baltimore Ravens for the selection.

Footballguys view: Excellent value here and being in the second round mitigates the risk. We think Jack will be all over this defense, dropping into coverage, attacking the run and generally being a nuisance. This is an impact defensive player Jacksonville has been looking for.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville moves up in second round    Fri Apr 29, 07:31 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars acquired the 36th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for the 38th overall pick and the 146th overall pick. The Jaguars picked LB Myles Jack with the selection.

Footballguys view: We love it and we love the pick of Jack, who will play with a chip on his shoulder. The medicals are a concern, but Dr James Andrews said that Jack doesn't need surgery now. It could happen at some point, but in the end if Jacksonville can get three or four years out of him it is well worth it.

The San Diego Chargers selected Arkansas TE Hunter Henry with the No. 35 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: Another in a long line of Antonio gates replacements and in a weak tight end class. We're not expecting immediate impact here.

The Dallas Cowboys selected Notre Dame LB Jaylon Smith with the No. 34 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: What a shock. Smith was a fantastic player in college but tearing an MCL and ACL puts him out of the game for likely a year and he will not have an impact for a defense desperate to have one right now. No Greg Hardy, no Randy Gregory for four games and no Smith. The Ezekiel Elliott pick was great. this one? Not so much.

The Tennessee Titans selected Clemson LB Kevin Dodd with the No. 33 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: It might take Dodd a while to get up to speed, but he's going to be a big help in the pass defense. Dodd is an aggressive, high motor defender who loves to get after the ball.
