    Cardinals select Louisville TE Gerald Christian with “Mr. Irrelevant” pick

    All things considered, “Mr. Irrelevant” didn’t get a bad draw this year. With the final selection in the 2015 NFL Draft — long dubbed the Mr. Irrelevant pick — the Cardinals took Louisville tight end Gerald Christian 256th overall. The 6-foot-3, 244-pound Christian appears to have a puncher’s chance to make the Cardinals’ roster. Arizona doesn’t…

    Steelers address defense in draft

    When a defense allows the third-most yards per play in the previous regular season, the subsequent draft would figure to bring to reinforcements. Such was the case for the Steelers, who selected six defensive players in eight picks in the 2015 NFL Draft. Half of the defensive selections were defensive backs: Ole Miss cornerback Senquez…

    Dallas owner and general manager Jerry Jones wasn't bluffing when he said getting a running back wouldn't be a top priority in the draft, even though the Cowboys lost NFL rushing champion DeMarco Murray in free agency. The Cowboys kept the focus on defense on the final day of the draft Saturday, taking linebackers Damien Wilson of Minnesota and Mark Nzeocha of Wyoming in the fourth and seventh rounds. Defensive end Ryan Russell of Purdue was picked in the fifth.

    The New York Jets added another quarterback to the mix, and then acquired a versatile running back on the final day of the NFL draft. Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty was selected with the Jets' fourth-round pick after the team moved up one spot Saturday in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jets gave up the 104th pick and a seventh-rounder (No. 229) to take Petty. ''We felt good about Bryce today, in terms of where he fell,'' general manager Mike Maccagnan said.

Frank Olivo was 66. Olivo died early Thursday at a suburban hospital after a long battle with heart disease, diabetes and other ailments, said his cousin, Richard Monastra. The story of Olivo's misfortune has long been held up as a symbol of Philly sports fans' ferocity, but far from minding his moment in sports history, Olivo ''gloried in it,'' Monastra said.

  • newArizona Cardinals close the 2015 draft by picking "Mr. Irrelevant"
    It's probably better to be the last pick of the NFL draft rather than the second-to-last pick. At least the last pick gets a party in his honor in California."Mr. Irrelevant" is a longstanding NFL draft tradition, a dubious honor for the final pick of the NFL draft. The Arizona Cardinals had pick No. 256 in the seventh round, the last pick this year. They took Gerald Christian, a tight end from Louisville.[Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football is back: Sign up for a league today!]It's not too bad. The last pick of the draft is the guest of honor at "Irrelevant Week" in July at Newport Beach, Calif…

  • newGiants' fifth-round pick says he was surprised to be drafted at all
    Teams make surprising draft picks all the time. However, it's not so common that a draft pick himself is surprised to hear his name called at all.The New York Giants took Texas safety Mykkele Thompson in the fifth round. Thompson wasn't exactly hosting a big draft party."It was a surprise for me," Thompson said, according to ESPN.com. "I don't even know how to explain it right now. After the numbers I put up this year, I thought free agency was going to be the main goal, probably."The Giants have made plenty of good picks through the years, but picking someone in the fifth round who admi…

  • newPatriots make most Patriots pick of all time, draft long snapper in Round 5
    When I first heard about Joe Cardona, the long snapper from Navy, my first thought was that he'd make the most obvious New England Patriots pick of all time.I had no idea how prescient I'd be.Cardona, who is considered one of the best long-snapping prospects in a few years (I have no idea how people judge that), was taken with the 166th pick in the 2015 draft.It made perfect sense.Patriots need a long snapper. They've tried out and used a few the past few seasons.And Cardona is a Navy guy. Bill Belichick grew up learning football at Navy when his father was a coach and scout there. He's a…

  • newDolphins land fifth-round RB Jay Ajayi, whose knee caused draft slide
    Watching Jay Ajayi bowl his way through mostly helpless Mountain West defenders on his way to more than 2,300 yards from scrimmage last season, it was easy to ask early in Round 5 ... why is this guy still available?The biggest reason: a knee that some NFL team doctors believe might not hold up long in the NFL. A few weeks ago, reports surfaced that his knee was essentially bone on bone despite being able to play — and play every game — the past three seasons.Could Ajayi be the next Cadillac Williams — an energetic, feisty, powerful runner with awareness and instincts who never can sta…

    Well, at least Brett Hundley gets to sit and learn a while in the NFL.Hundley, the UCLA quarterback who was thought by some to be the third-best quarterback in this draft class, is going to the Green Bay Packers.[Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football is back: Sign up for a league today!]Really, the Packers. Who have NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers, who is still in his prime, at quarterback. What made it stranger is that the Packers traded up 19 spots with the New England Patriots to take Hundley in the fifth round (although reports say the Patriots made the first call to the Packers). The Packers sent the 2…

    Josh Shaw's odd story ends up with Cincinnati Bengals drafting him

    You probably remember Josh Shaw, who was selected in the fourth round by the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday. The name probably rings a bell at least, if you pay attention to football.Shaw's story was one of the weirdest last year in the sports world.First Shaw, a talented USC cornerback, said he injured both of his ankles jumping off a balcony to save his drowning nephew. USC published that story on its website. Wow, what a great feel-good story! Yeah, too great. [Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football is back: Sign up for a league today!] That story unraveled in a hurry.

    Jets move up for Bryce Petty, but he's not beating out Geno Smith ... this year

    No, Bryce Petty is not the savior for this season. But the New York Jets' fourth-round pick, who is used to waiting his turn, is a name to watch for 2016.This is the theme of the Jets' offseason: It's on you, Geno Smith.They traded for Brandon Marshall and drafted speed ball Devin Smith. They added an offensive lineman and a running back. The defense might be one of the most talented units in the league, capable of winning 10 games with average QB play. If Smith can't make it happen now in New York, he never will.Petty will be handled differently with the Jets than Smith was when he came i…

  • newSeahawks try to defend one of the draft's most controversial picks
    At times we try to turn football teams into something they're not, mostly because football teams try to portray themselves as something they're not.Teams do care about arrest records and character issues. But if we're being honest, their concern is if those issues will prevent certain players from helping on the football field. Anything said by the teams above and beyond that is just extraneous public relations. They're in the football business. That's their only priority. Let's stop fooling ourselves into thinking that's not the case."But suffice it to say, we would never, ever take a pla…
