The Broncos went into the third day of the draft in search of help on offense and all four picks Saturday were on that side of the ball. They also too two big gambles in those four picks -- that Michigan tight end Jake Butt's knee will heal and that Mississippi quarterback Chad Kelly can both get healthy and leave his past off-the-field troubles behind.

The Jets finally addressed their cornerback need in the sixth round (197), but it was a roll of the dice. Michigan's Jeremy Clark tore his ACL in the fourth game of the season, so he's a bit of an unknown. He was playing well before the injury and he's 6-foot-3 with long arms – just the way Todd Bowles likes his corners. The question is, when can he be ready? The Jets blew it by waiting so long to add a corner.

U-M conclude Rome trip with practice session

Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines wrapped up their time in Rome with a spring practice at Stadio dei Marmi. Using a megaphone, Harbaugh thanked the crowd for the hospitality shown during the trip.

The Broncos selected Michigan tight end Jake Butt with the 145th pick of the draft. Butt tore his right ACL in the Wolverines' bowl game earlier this year -- the same ACL he tore in 2014. But he's a player who likely would have been among draft's first 30 picks without the most recent injury.

That's a good fit for TE Jake Butt going to the Broncos and Mike McCoy's offense. Run the seam, the corner route and use his size in the middle of the field. High-percentage throws to get him the ball. Route running.

WR Jehu Chesson is the Chiefs' fourth-round pick. They traded a couple of their later picks to the Vikings in order to move up to get Chesson. The Chiefs have moved up to get three offensive skill players in this draft: QB Patrick Mahomes in the first round, RB Kareem Hunt in the third and now Chesson.

The Jaguars pick third in the fourth round, which begins in less than 5 minutes. Could consider a tight end. Maybe Jake Butts? The Jaguars took CB Aaron Colvin in the fourth round in 2014. Like Butts, he also tore an ACL and wasn't ready for the start of the season.

The Jaguars have four picks in the final four rounds of the NFL draft on Saturday. They have the third pick in the fourth round, the fourth pick in the fifth round, and two picks in the seventh round (fourth and 22nd). They traded their sixth-round pick to Seattle to move up one spot in the second round to select Alabama OT Cam Robinson. Players to watch in the fourth round include TE Jake Butt, CB Desmond King, and QB Nathan Peterman.


Seahawks end second day with WR Amara Darboh

Seattle adds size, strength and toughness in the Michigan wideout.

Ravens are certainly staying in their comfort level, and this goes beyond going with defense in the first three rounds. Three of Baltimore's first four picks came from Alabama or Michigan, where the Ravens get some of their best information. General manager Ozzie Newsome remains connected with his alma mater in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and John Harbaugh's brother Jim coaches the Wolverines.

With the 106th pick (third round), the Seahawks took Michigan WR Amaro Darboh. Darboh (6-foot-2, 214 pounds) caught 57 balls for 862 yards and seven touchdowns last season. He tested very well athletically at the combine. The Seahawks have Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, Tyler Lockett and Paul Richardson at wide receiver. Lockett is coming off of a leg injury, and Richardson is entering the final year of his contract. Darboh will compete to earn a role as a rookie.

Cowboys third-round pick Jourdan Lewis believes the misdemeanor domestic violence charges against him will be dropped, "and I'll be exonerated completely. I'm completely innocent," he said. Lewis said the charges hurt his draft standing. He believes he was a first-round talent because "I don't believe anybody can do the things I do as well as I do."


Cowboys add talented CB Jourdan Lewis in third round

Mel Kiper Jr. sees the former Michigan corner as a key component for an NFL team in the slot corner position.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Jourdan Lewis should project as a slot cornerback for the Cowboys. Lateral speed and man-coverage ability. Quick to transition to the ball. And Lewis is going to be aggressive vs. the run game. Limited size (5-foot-10, 188 pounds), but the talent is there to match up inside.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys needed to make this draft about defense, on the front and back ends. Their first three picks are a DE and two cornerbacks. Jourdan Lewis fell to the late third round due to off-field character issue, but could be their nickel CB as a rookie.


Ravens add more D with Chris Wormley

Mel Kiper Jr. likes the ability of the Michigan DT to disrupt the passing lanes of a quarterback and sees the versatility of Baltimore's No. 74 pick translating well to the next level.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens continue to invest in defense by drafting Michigan defensive end Chris Wormley with the No. 74 overall pick. Wormley produced 17.5 sacks in four seasons. This marks the fourth time in franchise history that the Ravens have used their first three picks on defensive players. The other drafts were 1997 2013, 2014.

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jaguars pick fourth in the third round behind Cleveland and back-to-back picks by San Francisco. Possibilities: DE Jordan Willis (if he makes it), G Dan Feeney, TE Jake Butt.

Taco Charlton will wear No. 97 for the Dallas Cowboys.
