Cowboys Take Marquez White

The latest NFL draft pick from the Dallas Cowboys is in, and Marquez White of Florida State is on his way to D-FW. The Cowboys selected White with the 216th overall pick in the sixth round. Earlier in the round, the Cowboys traded away the 211th pick to New England in exchange for Nos. 216 and 239.

Joe Mixon has Emotional Call With Media after Selection By Bengals

Joe Mixon was emotional, often crying, during Friday's conference call with Cincinnati media after the Bengals selected him with the 48th overall pick. Mixon was suspended by Oklahoma for the full 2014 season after he punched a woman, breaking four bones in her face, in a Norman, Oklahoma, deli. The 20-year-old reached a civil settlement agreement last Friday with the woman. He accepted a plea deal in the criminal case stemming from the incident. Joe, what was your reaction when you got that call, how emotional was it for you? Joe Mixon: It was very emotional. I’m still sitting here crying. I can’t believe it. Very thankful. Very honored to be a part of the Cincinnati Bengals. Joe, describe

Joe Thomas sees the draft as a soap opera with unpaid actors

Ten years ago, tackle Joe Thomas opted not to attend the draft. He recently explained that he didn’t want to be an unpaid actor in the NFL’s top offseason drama. “The idea of going to New York for five days and kinda being paraded around by the NFL as they make money off your every step, and the whole purpose is just for publicity for me to stand there in a suit and go, ‘Look at me everybody!’… That sounds horrible,” Thomas tells Graham Bentsinger in a new interview that debuts this weekend. It also sounded horrible to the NFL that Thomas didn’t want to go along with the thing that is constantly sold to players as some sort of an honor. “It started turning into, ‘The teams are gonna think yo

Peter Schaffer Out In Front On Social Media Awareness

The influence of social media during the NFL draft reached an all-time high this time last year. Laremy Tunsil landed in the center of controversy after his Twitter account was hacked moments before the draft and someone posted a video of Tunsil smoking a substance from a bong while wearing a gas mask. It dominated the first night of draft conversation and contributed to Tunsil's fall from a projected top-five pick to the Miami Dolphins at No. 13 overall. Whether hacked or not, players are responsible for their social media accounts, and the fallout is enough that NFL teams have made it part of their evaluation process. "So now it's evolved, to my understanding, where every team has at least

Mixon Made Smart Choice When Picking Agent

With the help of his agent Peter Schaffer, Joe Mixon has done an impressive job of refurbishing his image in recent months. And while some teams have taken him off their draft board, many others haven't. "I think he's going to go in the second or third round,'' NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said. "There's an ownership conversation involved with him. Some owners have already told their people to take him off the board. "But he's made visits to nearly 20 teams. He did a very smart thing by hiring (Schaffer) who's a respected agent. Schaffer attacked it head on instead of trying to hide from it. They have controlled the narrative from Day 1. "They've said he was 18 years old when that h

Cris Collinsworth’s 2017 mock draft; at #29 Joe Mixon to Green Bay Packers

"Mixon is the most talented back in this draft. He is a much better receiver than Fournette, bigger than McCaffery, and a much better inside runner and blocker than Cook. My hunch is that the Packers will take Mixon with this pick." -Chris Collinsworth Full Mock Draft From Collinsworth: 1. Cleveland Browns Myles Garrett, Edge, Texas A&M The real drama for the Browns doesn’t come until their pick at No. 12. The No. 1 pick has only two options: draft Myles Garrett, or trade out of the pick for someone who wants him enough to pay a heavy price. Either scenario works for Cleveland. Garrett moves like a point guard who is completely in control of the action — Jason Pierre-Paul in his prime comes

Seahawks Guard Will Pericak spends three weeks working on Capitol Hill

The senator leaned in closer, sharing a sheet of paper with the oversized extern seated next to him. Listed was the day’s schedule, groups coming through the office, committee hearings on tap and policy matters that needed to be explored. “The ones that are highlighted in blue are ones where I’ll be making the full meeting,” Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) explained. Will Pericak, a 300-pound offensive lineman for the Seattle Seahawks, nodded. Outside the office, official Washington was consumed Thursday morning with reports that the attorney general might have met with a Russian ambassador. For at least a moment, though, Gardner’s office was much more focused on the staid details of the day. “I
