Atlanta Falcons 1 (6) - Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M; 2 (37) - RaShede Hageman DT, Minnesota; 3 (68) - Dezmen Southward, FS, Wisconsin; 4 (103) - Devonta Freeman, RB, Florida State; 4 (139) - Prince Shembo, OLB, Notre Dame; 5 (147) - Ricardo Allen, CB, Purdue; 5 (168) - Marquis Spruill, ILB, Syracuse; 7 (253) - Yawin Smallwood, OLB, UConn; 7 (255) - Tyler Starr, OLB, South Dakota Top Picks Analysis: The Falcons had visions of trading up for the No. 1 pick in the draft, South Carolina star pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney, but that was cost prohibitive so they stayed put at No. 6 and went with offensive tackle Jake Matthews, a safe pick at a need position. Minnesota defensive tackle RaShede Hageman is a boom-or-bust prospect with a very high ceiling as a player, while Wisconsin safety Dezmen Southward was another need pick and will be given every opportunity to replace the departed Thomas DeCoud as William Moores running mate. Best Value Pick: Fourth-round selection Prince Shembo of Notre Dame lacks the length to be an every down difference maker on the edge but he has the instincts and toughness to be a solid situational pass rusher for a team that is desperate for one. Questionable Calls: Hageman flashes but has always lacked consistency on the college level. A move to the five-technique at the professional level could either accentuate his natural physical skills or turn him into a tweener with no real position. Summary: Matthews is as safe as it gets at No. 6 overall and will certainly be a welcome addition for Matt Ryan but general manager Thomas Dimitroff really rolled the dice after the Texas A&M legacy. FINAL GRADE: B Undrafted rookie free agent signings: DT/FB Roosevelt Nix, Kent State; RB Jerome Smith, Syracuse; CB Tay Glover-Wright, Utah State; OL James Stone, Tennessee; WR Geraldo Boldewijn, Boise State; QB Jeff Matthews, Cornell; WR Bernard Reedy, Toledo; DE Jacques Smith, Tennessee; P Matt Yoklic, Pittsburgh; DL Nosa Eguae, Auburn; WR Freddie Martino, North Greenville; LB Brenden Daley, Hawaii; TE Jacob Pederson, Wisconsin; S Kimario McFadden, South Carolina; DE Walker May, Vanderbilt; DT Donte Rumph, Kentucky; S Javon Marshall, Vanderbilt; S Jestin Love, Central Arkansas; K Drew Basil, Ohio State FB Maurice Hagens, Miami; CB Devonta Glover-Wright, Utah State Carolina Panthers 1 (28) - Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State; 2 (60) - Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri; 3 (92) Trai Turner, OG, LSU; 4 (128) - Tre Boston, SS, North Carolins; 5 (148) - Bene Benwikere, CB, San Jose State; 6 (204) - Tyler Gaffney, RB, Stanford Top Picks Analysis: Its difficult to argue with David Gettlemans plan. The Panthers GM needed help at wide receiver and jumped at the 6-foot-5 Kelvin Benjamin, a nice option at No. 28 overall. It remains to be seen if Benjamin has the suddenness to be anything more than an outside the numbers, ball-aware threat but either way the Florida State product filled a big need. Mizzou defensive end Kony Ealy came in with a late-first-round grade by many so snaring in at No. 60 overall was great value. Meanwhile, LSU guard Trai Turner could compete for a starting job on a thin offensive line. Best Value Pick: The Panthers have two superlative rushers on the edge in Charles Johnson and Greg Hardy but you dont pass up a talent like Ealy late in the second round. Questionable Calls: Waiting until the third round to address the issues on the offensive line probably isnt going to make Cam Newton thrilled. Summary: Benjamin should have no problem earning a starting spot in a revamped Panthers receiving corps which now includes veterans Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant. Meanwhile, Ealy adds to the impressive depth Carolina possesses in the front four and safety Tre Boston could help replace the departed Mike Mitchell. Gettleman, however, probably should have carpet- bombed the O-Line on Day 3 and he ignored it. FINAL GRADE: B- Undrafted rookie free agent signings: CB Carrington Byndom, Texas; WR Corey Brown, Ohio State; WR Marcus Lucas, Missouri; OL Jared Wheeler, Miami; DL Shaq Rowell, South Carolina; OL Andrew Norwell, Ohio State; RB Darrin Reaves, UAB; LB Denicos Allen, Michigan State New Orleans Saints 1 (20) - Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State; 2 (58) Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska; 4 (126) Khairi Fortt, ILB, California; 5 (167) - Vinny Sunseri, SS, Alabama; 5 (169) - Ronald Powell, OLB, Florida; 6 (202) - Tavon Rooks, OT, Kansas State Top Picks Analysis: You gotta keep the franchise happy and the New Orleans Saints did exactly that by trading up to draft dynamic Oregon State wide receiver Brandin Cooks, who some have compared to ex-Carolina star Steve Smith, in the first round. Cooks is undersized but hes got explosive speed and should fit in nicely as the replacement for the departed Lance Moore. Lengthy cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste was the Saints other premium pick and he should push the aging Champ Bailey pretty quickly as the potential starter opposite Keenan Lewis. Best Value Pick: Fourth-round linebacker Khairi Fortt transferred to Cal from Penn State after the Jerry Sandusky-scandal so he might have been off-the- radar for some but hes a speedy, athletic player, who could be a solid fit for a Rob Ryan defense. Questionable Calls: Fifth-round safety Vinny Sunseri didnt have great speed to begin with and he tore his ACL late last season so he might not have the baseline skills you need to play safety in this league. Summary: Working with Drew Brees should only help Cooks hit the ground running in the NFL while Jean-Baptiste is the type of big cornerback en vogue right now. The depth, though, just wasnt there for NOLA in this draft. FINAL GRADE: B- Undrafted rookie free agent signings: S Ty Zimmerman, Kansas State; S Pierre Warren, Jacksonville State; RB Tim Flanders, Sam Houston State; WR JeRon Hamm, Louisiana Monroe; QB Logan Kilgore, Middle Tennessee State; DL George Uko, New Orleans; LB Spencer Hadley, BYU; WR Brandon Coleman, Rutgers; CB Brian Dixon, Northwest Missouri State; C Matt Armstrong, Grand Valley State; WR Sentavius Jones, Valdosta State; DT Micajah Reynolds, Michigan State; LB Trashaun Nixon, New Mexico State; DE Chidera Uzo-Diribe, Colorado; K Sergio Castillo, West Texas A&M; DE Kasim Edebali, Boston College; DE Lawrence Virgil, Valdosta State Tampa Bay Buccaneers 1 (7) - Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M; 2 (38) - Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington; 3 (69) - Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia; 5 (143) - Kadeem Edwards, OG, Tennessee State; 5 (149) - Kevin Pamphile, OT, Purdue; 6 (185) - Robert Herron, WR, Wyoming Top Picks Analysis: Pre-draft hype centering on the Bucs interest in Johnny Manziel proved to be just that as Tampa Bay stayed home at No. 7 overall and took Manziels teammate at Texas A&M, lengthy wide receiver Mike Evans. The 6-foot-5 Evans has elite ball skills but must improve his route running and versatility (he only lined up on the right side in College Station) to become an all-around player. "Hes what todays wide receiver is all about, with the advent of back- shoulder fade, and with big wide receivers playing outside the numbers and in the red zone," NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said when discussing Evans. "The buzz word is catching radius. When paired with Vincent Jackson its going to be like basketball on grass (in Tampa)." Evans certainly could team with Jackson to give new Bucs QB Josh McCown a similar set-up to what he had in Chicago last season (Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery). Tampa Bay got more help for McCown by selecting Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins in the second round, and West Virginia running back Charles Sims in the third. Best Value Pick: Seferian-Jenkins is a bit of a dinosaur, a true two-way tight end with terrific movement skills and receiving ability for a big man, along with the ability be an effective in-line blocker thanks to his size and strength. "He has big hands. Hes a big target, and can run all the routes you want," NFL Network draft analyst Charles Davis said. "(He) is also a terror in the red zone." Questionable Calls: Sims projects as a third-down back because he has pretty impressive natural receiving skills but his blocking is a big question mark and thats pretty important if you want to be on the field in obvious passing situations. Summary: Tampa Bay passed on a chance to upgrade the long-term quarterback position but managed to select the drafts second-best receiver, Evans, as well as the second or third best tight end in Seferian-Jenkins. FINAL GRADE: B Undrafted rookie free agent signings: WR Solomon Patton, Florida; QB Brett Smith, Wyoming; CB Keith Lewis, Virginia-Lynchburg; DE Chaz Sutton, South Carolina; WR Aaron Burks, Boise State; WR Tony Hurd Jr., Texas A&M; OL Matt Patchan, Boston College; S Mycal Swaim, Eastern Michigan; OG Chris Burnette, Georgia Cheap David Ross Jersey .

Watch the game live on TSN Canadiens and listen on TSN Radio 690 starting at 7:30pm et. http://www.cheapcubsjerseysshop.com/.com) - The Chicago White Sox have officially announced that the club has agreed to terms with utilityman Emilio Bonifacio on a one-year, $4 million contract that includes a team option for the 2016 season. Cheap Greg Maddux Jersey . The 18-year-old centre was the Senators first-round pick (17th overall) in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. The six-foot 196-pound native of Salmon Arm, B. Cheap Fergie Jenkins Jersey . The American secured his first back-to-back ATP match wins since June to leave Tsonga relying on his performance at next weeks Paris Masters to clinch one of the final three places for the season-ending event in London. Tsonga would have moved up one spot to No. 6 with a win over Querrey at the City of Arts and Sciences, but his serve deserted him in the second set as the 116th-ranked American broke twice to reach the quarter-finals.They are thinking playoffs in Kansas City, which makes some sense even after the Chiefs got off to a poor start this season.After all, KC qualified for the post-season last year.Theyre also thinking playoffs in Buffalo. Wait, Buffalo?Yep, at 5-3, like the Chiefs, the Bills are in the middle of the race, seeking to end a 14-season playoff drought.I mean, 5-3 is only the beginning, Bills defensive back Corey Graham says. Weve still got a long way to go. Its not really how you start, its how you finish the season.The Bills usually finish as an also-ran, which means their success so far in 2014 isnt likely to go to their heads.I can understand the question, coach Doug Marrone says. I dont think thats the case at all when you havent been to the playoffs in such a long time. I think the one message I tried to tell them ... it doesnt get easier, it gets harder.Starting with Sunday. Kansas City is rolling, winning five of six — the only loss was a tight one at San Francisco — and has a defence to be feared. Justin Houston leads the NFL in sacks with 12 and the Chiefs have yielded only 66 points in their five victories.One oddity: Kansas City has not had a wide receiver catch a touchdown pass from Alex Smith.We want to get everybody involved in scoring touchdowns, but to be honest, when youre out there playing, thats not something Im thinking about, Smith said. When a play gets called, theres reads and things that go into it, youre going out there trying to throw the ball where it goes. Were not trying to press and force it to this guy or that guy.The action began Thursday night with Cleveland manhandling Cincinnati 24-3. The visiting Browns (6-3) moved into a tie for the AFC North lead with Pittsburgh and improved their best start since 1994 — during the previous edition of the franchise.The Browns won a division game on the road for the first time since 2008, ending a streak of 17 consecutive losses. Cincinnati dropped to 5-3-1.Monday nights game is Carolina at Philadelphia.Off this week are Houston (4-5), Minnesota (4-5), New England (7-2), Indianapolis (6-3), San Diego (5-4) and Washington (3-6).Miami (5-3) at Detroit (6-2)Two of the more surprisingly successful teams so far — hey, the Lions lead the NFC North. Detroit has the top-ranked defence and Miami is third.Its a pretty even match in terms of the type of teams facing each other, Dolphins defensive co-ordinator Kevin Coyle said. Were both strong on defence, both have explosive-play ability on offence. I think its going to be a heck of a matchup.Dolphins DE Cameron Wake has 4 1/2 sacks in the past four games. The Lions have seven players with at least two sacks.San Francisco (4-4) at New Orleans (4-4)Two of the more disappointing teams so far, although the Saints are coming on with three straight victories. Even better for them, they play their next three at home, where they have won their past 20 with Sean Payton coaching; he was suspended for the 2012 season.San Francisco has dropped its past two games and needs to rediscover its offence. Maybe the Niners will turn to Frank Gore, who has rushed for more than 80 yards in four of his past five games against New Orleans, including the playoffs.Chicago (3-5) at Green Bay (5-3)Both teams come back from a bye, and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers must be chomping at the bit. Rodgers is 11-3 against Green Bays oldest rival; this is their 190th meeting. The Bears have lost 10 of their past 12 against the Packers, including playoffs.Plus, when the Pack is back off a bye under Mike McCarthy, it is 7-1.The Bears have lost four of five and were routed at home by Green Bay in Week 4.Denver (6-2) at Oakland (0-8)Peyton Manning and his teammates are smarting from a shellacking last Sunday at the Patriots. No better way to get healthy than against the NFLs only winless team.But Manning isnt getting sloppy or complacent — not that he ever would.I dont look at the record, I look at the film, Manning said. I look at how were playing. Your job each week is to study the opponent and also be sure youre studying yourselves and seeing what you need to be doing to improve.Oakland hhas lost 14 straight, its longest skid since dropping 19 in a row in 1961-62.dddddddddddd.St. Louis (3-5) at Arizona (7-1)The Cardinals have the NFLs best record, and plenty of momentum after wins over Philadelphia and Dallas. They have not gone 8-1 since their 11-1 season in 1948, when they called Chicago home.Run defence has been a big part of Arizonas success: It has not allowed a 100-yard rusher in 18 consecutive games.St. Louis has done well in the NFLs toughest division, going 2-1, and comes off a nail-biting upset of San Francisco. The Rams had six sacks all season before getting eight against the 49ers.New York Giants (3-5) at Seattle (5-3)Seattle hasnt looked much like a Super Bowl champion recently, but it has won two in a row. And the Seahawks expect to get several key players back from injury: centre Max Unger, left tackle Russell Okung, safety Kam Chancellor and defensive tackle Jordan Hill.The Seahawks also got Marshawn Lynch back into the offensive flow last week against Oakland. He figures to see plenty of action this week.New York has dropped three straight, its run game stagnant and its pass defence vulnerable. The Giants saw two starters hurt last Monday night in a loss to Indianapolis: rookie guard Weston Richburg (ankle) and cornerback Prince Amukamara (biceps).Pittsburgh (6-3) at New York Jets (1-8)The other Meadowlands tenant is in even worse shape. The Jets have never lost nine in a row, but falling to Pittsburgh will achieve that dubious distinction. And the Steelers are 19-4 against the Jets.Pittsburgh has won three straight games, with Ben Roethlisberger setting an NFL mark with six TD passes in consecutive outings.Ive had a lot of matchups against Big Ben through my days, Jets coach Rex Ryan says. I lost two (AFC) championship games to him. I had some good games against him and all that. Ive never seen him this hot.Hes just on fire right now.And the Jets are cold as ice.Carolina (3-5-1) at Philadelphia (6-2), Monday nightMark Sanchez steps in as the starter with Nick Foles (collarbone) sidelined, and Sanchez looked pretty good in a win over Houston. Hell have the resurgent Jeremy Maclin to throw to; Maclin has 18 receptions for 345 yards and four TDs in his past two games.Philly also gets 2013 All-Pro guard Evan Mathis back from injury.The Panthers are spiraling, losing three straight with little offence to rely on.Dallas (6-3) vs. Jacksonville (1-8) at LondonThis years third and final match at Wembley Stadium, the second of the Jaguars four-game commitment to play a home game in London each year.Theres plenty of intrigue on the Dallas side. The Cowboys have lost their past two games and QB Tony Romos tender back makes him a question mark after he sat out last weekend. Would the team have taken him across the pond just to watch?If youre always waiting to feel great to play in every game you play in, youre only going to play a couple of games a year, he says. The best players are the guys who are able to play at the same level with stuff going on.Jacksonville, despite its record, can be troublesome, improving since an awful September.Tennessee (2-6) at Baltimore (5-4)Coming off a bye, Tennessee has lost five of its past six and is starting a rookie quarterback, Zach Mettenberger. The Titans rank 27th in offence and must find some production to challenge the Ravens, who are solid at home.Despite their record, the Ravens are in last place in the AFC North. Yet Baltimores plus-66 point differential (240-174) ranks third in the NFL behind New England and Indianapolis.Atlanta (2-6) at Tampa Bay (1-7)Last time they faced off, the Falcons won 56-14. Atlanta has not won since, dropping five straight. The most painful might have been their mismanaged defeat in London against Detroit before last weeks bye.Tampa is going back to veteran Josh McCown at quarterback. Bucs rookie WR Mike Evans comes off a seven-catch, 124-yard, two-TD performance against Cleveland. At 21 years, 73 days, hes youngest player in NFL history to have 100 yards receiving and two TDs in a game.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Buffalo Sabres Gear Wholesale Calgary Flames Jerseys Cheap Adidas Colorado Avalanche Jerseys Montreal Canadiens Outlet Store Wholesale New Jersey Devils Jerseys Adidas Arizona Coyotes Jerseys Cheap Adidas Boston Bruins Jerseys Cheap Adidas Carolina Hurricanes Jerseys Chicago Blackhawks Shop Free Shipping Wholesale Columbus Blue Jackets Jerseys Dallas Stars Shop Free Shipping Cheap Adidas Detroit Red Wings Jerseys Anaheim Ducks Jerseys China Wholesale Edmonton Oilers Jerseys Florida Panthers Shop Free Shipping Wholesale Los Angeles Kings Jerseys Minnesota Wild Outlet Store Cheap Adidas Nashville Predators Jerseys Cheap Adidas New York Islanders Jerseys New York Rangers Winter Classic Jerseys Cheap Adidas Ottawa Senators Jerseys Cheap Adidas Philadelphia Flyers Jerseys Wholesale Pittsburgh Penguins Jerseys Cheap Adidas San Jose Sharks Jerseys St. Louis Blues Winter Classic Jerseys Wholesale Tampa Bay Lightning Jerseys Toronto Maple Leafs Outlet Store Vancouver Canucks Outlet Store Cheap Adidas Vegas Golden Knights Jerseys Cheap Adidas Washington Capitals Jerseys Cheap Adidas Winnipeg Jets Jerseys ' ' '
