Marcus Mariota, just hours after flaunting his Beats by Dre in one of the company's YouTube videos, donned the trendy headphones when picked second by Tennessee in the NFL draft Thursday night. The No. 1 pick, Jameis Winston, clutched a red pair of Beats when chosen by Tampa Bay. The in-your-face issue: competitor Bose is the official headphone of the NFL.
The New England Patriots keep using the draft to build a formidable young defensive line. The defending Super Bowl champions drafted Texas defensive tackle Malcom Brown with the 32nd and final pick of the first round Thursday night, hoping they've found a replacement for five-time Pro Bowler Vince Wilfork. They used their first-round pick on a defensive lineman for the third time in four years, following Syracuse defensive end Chandler Jones in 2012 and Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley last year.

Flowers is a huge player who excels in in pass protection, something bound to give Eli Manning more time to throw to Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz.

Former NFL star Plaxico Burress has been indicted on charges he failed to pay taxes, New Jersey prosecutors announced Thursday. The 37-year-old former wide receiver with the Pittsburgh Steelers, New York Giants and New York Jets was charged last week with willful failure to pay a state tax and issuing a bad check or electronic funds transfer. In a news release from the Mercer County prosecutor's office, authorities said Burress filed his state income tax return for 2013 on Oct. 20, 2014, showing he owed nearly $48,000, the amount that would be due for someone with a taxable income of about $550,000. Prosecutors said he submitted an electronic funds transfer, but it failed.
