Instead of trading down, there were reports coming in less than hour before the draft that they were considering trading up for Alabama's Minkah Fitzpatrick. Said Alexander: "I'm a big believer in heart over height". They're getting a baller.
If Mizzou's other contenders to be selected are not picked on Saturday, this will be the second straight season that the draft has only included one Missouri player. Defensive end Marcell Frazier agreed to a contract with Seattle, he confirmed.
Safety Anthony Sherrils and tight end Jason Reese followed closely behind.
As the first choice of the fifth round, Madison was the first player from either WSU or Idaho to be chosen in this year's draft, which began Thursday. The 6-foot-3 senior had team highs of 65 catches and 1,082 yards last season. Moore was the 15th wide receiver taken in the draft, but he had no complaints about his destination. With a stingy secondary, running back duo in Kamara and Mark Ingram, solid offensive line, and Drew Brees, the Saints made a decision to beef up their pass rush.
Aaron Rodgers - Building a championship level defense will make the quarterback's life much easier. It's got to be one of the best seats in the house. "I'm thankful for it". "I'm pretty excited about it".
"You never can predict it". I would not be one of those guys. They got him at 45.
"He knew exactly what he wanted".
Coach Mike McCarthy didn't appear anxious. "It's just a small hiccup".
Alright, Packers. We're still awake, and you have our attention. "He does have some upside". During that streak, this is the furthest into the draft it has taken for the first MU player to be selected. But I think it's just really a reflection about how we felt about them as players. Last year's punter, Justin Vogel, was seventh in the National Football League in net punting average at 41.6 yards.
Damarious Randall was dealt to the Cleveland Browns in a trade that sent quarterback DeShone Kizer to Green Bay. Moore could be groomed to replace Nelson on the outside. They also could have used a middle-round pick to take one of many edge rushers with unrealized potential, but, again, the Packers had too many holes elsewhere to take major risks at outside linebacker.
