The Cowboys went back to offense with their second seventh-round pick in Ohio State wide receiver Noah Brown. He is big, physical but inexperienced after playing little in 2014 and missing the 2015 with a broken leg. He had four touchdowns against Oklahoma and finished the year with 32 catches for 402 yards and seven touchdowns.

Browns open Round 6 with DT Brantley

When his motor is on, Caleb Brantley is one of the quickest and most disruptive three-techniques in the class. He has excellent first-step quickness, is a polished hand fighter and more disruptive as a pass-rusher than his stats indicate. Lack of effort is a concern, and he doesn't always maximize his talent. On April 24, Brantley was charged with misdemeanor simple battery.

Browns add powerful OT

With 36-inch inch arms and good initial quickness, Roderick Johnson pushes speed rushers past the pocket and gets good initial surge in the run game when his technique is sound. But he's a waist bender with below-average lower-body flexibility.

The Browns added offensive line depth by taking tackle Brad Johnson of Florida State after another trade up. Johnson came out early, a decision some scouts did not support. He stands 6-foot-7, weighs 298 pounds and played left tackle for the Seminoles.

According to ESPN Stats and Information, the Vikings were 25th in the league when they ran on third-and-2 or less last year, converting only 59.1 percent of their chances. When they threw it in the same situations, they had the third-best conversion rate in the league (76.2 percent). But their passing game can't be their primary method of short-yardage production, which explains why they were so interested in players like Pat Elflein on the offensive line.

The Steelers just drafted QB Joshua Dobbs, which sets up the Week 17 annual matchup of third-string quarterbacks in Pittsburgh against the Browns. This season it'll be Joshua Dobbs and DeShone Kizer.
