NEW YORK -- Clemson star receiver Sammy Watkins was the common thread early on the final day of the NFL draft Saturday. Marquise Goodwin Jersey . Watkins, the fourth overall selection in the first round by Buffalo, saw his older brother, Florida cornerback Jaylen Watkins, taken by Philadelphia to open the fourth round. Philadelphia acquired the selection the previous day from Houston, trading its third-round pick (No. 83) for the Texans fourth- and fifth-round spots. "Today is a very big day for our family," Jaylen said. "I texted him (Thursday) before he went on stage and he just texted me ... were both excited for each other. We cant complain about anything that happened this year for us." The next pick, by Washington, was Sammy Watkins college teammate, cornerback Bashaud Breeland, who went up against the nations top wideout in practice for several years at Clemson. Watkins fellow receiver with the Tigers, Martavis Bryant, also went in the fourth round, to Pittsburgh. "Sammy, hes a great player, hes like my brother," Bryant said. "I got a lot of love for him, so Ive never been the type to feel that (jealousy). Everything that the coaches asked me to do I did for the team, and if it was playing behind him then it was playing behind him." Andre Williams of Boston College, the nations leading rusher, went to the New York Giants, whose backfield has been plagued by injuries. Williams rushed for 2,177 yards and won the Doak Walker Award as Americas top running back in 2013, but he is considered a weak receiver. "Patience is a really valuable thing," Williams said. "It worked out the best possible way it could, no matter what round it ended up being." Arizonas KaDeem Carey, like Williams, an All-American runner, was taken four spots later by Chicago. Oregons DeAnthony Thomas went to Kansas City, ostensibly to replace departed Dexter McCluster. National champion Florida State had two players go in the first five picks Saturday: running back Devonta Freeman to Atlanta, and centre Bryan Stork, another All-American, to New England. Big 12 power Oklahoma, which was blanked in the first three rounds, broke through when the New York Jets drafted receiver Jalen Saunders. While two other powerhouse programs, Texas and Georgia, did not yet have anyone taken, Duke did. When Buffalo made cornerback Ross Cockrell the 109th overall selection, it was the highest a Blue Devil had gone since offensive lineman Lennie Friedman went to Denver in the second round in 1999. Cockrell thought Duke making the Chick-Fil-A bowl helped his stock. "I think it opened a lot of eyes that this guy from Duke can actually play a little ball and will be able to compete at the next level," he said. The first quarterback to go Saturday was a bit of surprise: inconsistent Logan Thomas of Virginia Tech. Thomas never really improved to the level expected during his career with the Hokies after a strong debut. Hes big, with a strong arm, but is turnover prone. Going on consecutive picks late in the fifth round were two other star QBs: Aaron Murray of Georgia to Kansas City, and A.J. McCarron of Alabama to Cincinnati. Zach Mettenberger of LSU went in the sixth round to the Titans. Missouri defensive end/linebacker Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to enter the draft, also is still waiting. Matt Breida Jersey . 15 in Hamburg. The fight was originally slated for Sept. 6 but had to be postponed after Klitschko tore a bicep in sparring and was forced to miss four weeks of training. Arik Armstead Jersey . Pinch-hitter Tommy Medica singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the Padres beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1 in their first home game since Gwynn died of cancer Monday. http://www.thesf49ersshoponline.com/Youth-Steve-Young-49ers-Jersey/ .1 Sam Stosur will meet Germanys second-ranked player Andrea Petkovic in the opening match of the Fed Cup World Group semifinal.The Heisman race is tight; the stage is set for a great finish. Defending Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and Florida State redshirt sophomore Jameis Winston are generally regarded as the top two contenders through 12 weeks of the season, with Oregons Marcus Mariota and the late-charging Bryce Petty of Baylor still within reach of college sports most coveted individual trophy. Manziels remaining schedule features fellow SEC heavyweights LSU and Missouri; two big opportunities for Texas A&M to work their way back into the BCS Bowl conversation and Manziel to make a favourable late season impression on Heisman voters. Winstons schedule is certainly a little lighter. The Seminoles end the regular season with matchups against Idaho and a disappointing Florida squad on Rivalry Weekend, and shouldnt expect much of a boost in the ACC Championship game with the No. 25 Duke Blue Devils the currrent favourites to challenge them for the Conference. Deion Sanders Jersey. Mariota meanwhile will face two decent but unspectacular Pac-12 rivals to finish out the regular season, but will benefit from the Conference championship game they are now back in the drivers seat to host, with it likely being a rematch against UCLA. The redshirt sophomore QB was pedestrian in his first meeting with the Bruins – a 42-14 drubbing earlier this season – and will need to be significantly better to make a finish line push for the Heisman. And as for Petty, the Bears finish with one big test and two middling ones as they look to clinch the Big 12. The Conference is awarded without a championship but Petty, the late-season riser in this race, could really make some noise if he helps keep Baylor undefeated and in the BCS Championship race after games against Oklahoma State, TCU, and Texas.
