The run on front-seven defensive players was real A run on defensive players was expected early, and nine of the first 13 selections were front-seven defensive players, including four of the first five ending with the Bucs' selection of inside linebacker Devin White. Interestingly enough, only three defensive backs were selected in the first round, and the first cornerback wasn't taken the 30th pick, where the Giants took Georgia's Deandre Baker. There were some early surprises Leave it to Jon Gruden to make the draft interesting -- and a little confusing. The Raiders’ selection of Clemson defensive end Clelin Farrell at No. 4 was a headscratcher because Farrell wasn’t expected to have his name called until the teens. We knew Giants GM Dave Gettleman really liked Duke quarterback Daniel Jones, but not enough to take him at sixth when impact defenders like Josh Allen and Ed Oliver were still on the board. The Redskins were the Day 1 winners There was lots of talk about the Redskins trading up to get Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins, but they were able to get him at No. 14 without making a deal. Then, they made a potential steal by taking Mississippi State edge Montez Sweat at No. 26. Sweat was a potential top-10 pick before concerns about a heart condition arose. If Sweat pans out, those are two cornerstone players. First round higher on Iowa tight end than any receivers Iowa’s tight end duo of T.J. Hockensmith and Noah Fant were both expected to be first-round picks, and both were off the board by the 20th pick as Hockensmith went to the Lions at No. 8 and the Broncos traded down to take Fant at No. 20. The first wide receiver didn’t come off the board until Oklahoma’s Marquise “Hollywood” Smith was selected by the Ravens at 25. There’s first-round talent still available Several projected first-round picks didn’t have their name called on Thursday, including Florida offensive tackle Jawaan Taylor, who was a top-10 pick in most mock drafts, as well as Missouri quarterback Drew Lock and LSU cornerback Greedy Williams. Will Williams sleep to No. 39 where the Bucs have their second-round selection? They can only hope. Washington cornerback Byron Murphy is still available as well. Contact Eduardo A.
