ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- The Oakland Raiders have taken tight end Nick Kasa with the first of their four sixth-round picks.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Giants have drafted Richmond safety Cooper Taylor in the fifth round of the NFL draft.

COMMENTARY | So let's get this straight.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals have added a second offensive guard in this year's draft, using a fourth-round pick to take James Madison's Earl Watford.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Giants have moved up in the fourth round of the NFL draft and taken Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib.
Nassib and Wilson hear their names called shortly after Barkley lands in Philly.
Jacksonville doesn't have any hope at quarterback, but it keeps passing on quarterbacks in the draft like the franchise is allergic to them. The Giants have a two-time Super Bowl MVP at quarterback, Eli Manning. But Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib's slide into the middle of the fourth round offered value that the Giants could not pass up. New York went with the best player available and took Nassib, who was projected by some to go as high as eighth overall, in the fourth round with the 110th overall pick. He was the best player available, and the Giants general manager Jerry Reese likes stockpiling those BPAs. That's just the smart way to operate. There's a reason some teams are stuck drafting early every year, and others like the Giants are contending for a championship many years.
NEW YORK (AP) -- The most exciting few minutes of the NFL draft came on Day 2.
