Oklahoma State connections on Day 2 of NFL Draft
I watched the second and third rounds of the NFL Draft from my apartment in Stillwater Friday night. Not nearly as glamorous as being at the Weeden crib last night. Oh well.
Two things I was monitoring:
If Markelle Martin was selected. He wasn’t. He was projected by many to go in the third round, but I’d imagine the knee injury that kept him from working out at the NFL Combine and OSU’s pro day last month was a factor in him slipping to the fourth round. The Titans, Colts, Jaguars, Patriots, Buccaneers and Falcons were at Martin’s individual pro day two weeks ago, so I’d most expect him to go to one of those teams.
I was also paying attention to who the Jaguars and Browns added to complement Justin Blackmon and Brandon Weeden. Here’s a breakdown of those picks.
Jaguars’ second-day picks
Second round No. 6 (No. 38 overall): Andre Branch, DE/OLB, Clemson
The Jags went defense with their second selection, upgrading their pass rush by taking the versatile Branch. He tallied 77 tackles (16 for loss), 9.5 sacks and five quarterback hurries in 2011.
Third round No. 7: Bryan Anger, P, California
Well this is interesting. Anger ranked 13th in the nation in punting yards per game (44.25) last season and made the All-Pac-12 First Team.
