JUSTIN BROWN, WR

Picked: Sixth round, 186th overall

Team: Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh receivers coach Richard Mann said he liked Brown because of his big size and blocking ability. Brown might not immediately step in and contribute as a rookie, but at 6-foot-3, he immediately becomes one of the tallest wideouts on the Steelers' roster.

STACY MCGEE, DT

Picked: Sixth round, 205th overall

Team: Oakland Raiders

McGee was suspended for seven games of his senior season, including the Cotton Bowl, and was a surprise invite to the NFL Combine in February. Even there, health issues prevented him from working out. The former Muskogee star's talent continues to give him opportunities. The Raiders lost their top three defensive tackles in free agency, so they're clearly looking for depth at the position. It remains to be seen if McGee can be relied on consistently.

DAVID KING, DE

Picked: Seventh round, 239th overall

Team: Philadelphia Eagles

King was the Eagles' last 2013 draft pick. He was a versatile defensive linemen his senior year, moving between the tackle and end positions. Philadelphia also drafted defensive end Joe Kruger in the seventh round, so King will likely have to fight hard to earn an active roster spot.
