Big 12 draft recap
By Jake Trotter
Below is a recap of how the Big 12 fared this weekend in the NFL draft. Baylor led the league with five picks, and Texas
failed to have a selection
for the first time since 1937.
Former Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert was the top Big 12 player drafted, going at No. 8 to the Cleveland Browns.
, Oklahoma State: Cleveland Browns (8
Should start immediately opposite Pro Bowl CB Joe Haden.
, TCU: San Diego Chargers (25
His aggressive cover corner skills will instantly boost an ailing San Diego secondary.
, Texas Tech: New York Jets (49
The Jets needed weapons for their passing game, and they got a big one here.
, West Virginia: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (69
Pass-catching skills makes him the likely third-down back in Tampa.
, West Virginia: Cincinnati Bengals (88
If he can develop his frame, he could be a factor down the line.
, Oklahoma: New York Jets (104
Brings major playmaking to the slot and the return teams.
, Oklahoma: Jacksonville Jaguars (114
Would have been a second-round pick if not for the Senior Bowl injury.
, Baylor: Buffalo Bills (153
A mauler who will probably need to trim down to succeed at the next level.
, Iowa State: New York Jets (154
Tackling skills could make him a force on special teams.
, Baylor: Washington Redskins (186
Had to wait a while, but gets to join former Bear RG III in the backfield.
, Baylor: Green Bay Packers (197
The former basketball player has upside that intrigued the Packers.
, Kansas State: New Orleans Saints (202nd)
It's a mild surprise that he was the first and only K-State alum drafted.
, Texas Tech: Dallas Cowboys (238
Big-time college tackler who will contribute on coverage teams.
, Baylor: San Diego Chargers (240
Will be interesting to see if San Diego can take advantage of Reese’s top-end speed.
, Oklahoma: Denver Broncos (242
Has a nose for the ball and probably would’ve gone higher had it not been for the pectoral injury.
, Oklahoma: San Francisco 49ers (245
A typical talented 49ers draft pick coming off an injury.
, Baylor: Dallas Cowboys (248
Brings a physical presence, but improvement in coverage will determine whether he sticks on the defense.
