Dalvin Tomlinson is coming off the best season of his college career with Alabama. Now he’ll have an opportunity to build on that success after being drafted by the New York Giants with the No. 55 pick in the second round. On the field, he has the potential to become a consistent contributor for the Giants.

Adam Shaheen was a couple of things coming out of high school in Galena, Ohio: He was 6-foot-4 and weighed about 195 pounds, and was headed to Division II Pittsburgh-Johnstown to play basketball.  Four years later, the Bears on Friday made the now 6-foot-6, 278 pound tight end their second-round draft pick. He was the fifth tight end selected, behind first-rounders O.J. Howard (Tampa Bay, No. 19), Evan Engram (New York Giants, No. 23), David Njoku (Cleveland, No. 29) and Gerald Everett (Los Angeles Rams, No. 44).  Shaheen said he missed football after a year of playing basketball (he played football at Big Walnut High School in Ohio), with 2013’s memorable Ohio State-Wisconsin game giving him

Evan Engram had “limited contact” with the New York Giants leading up to the 2017 NFL Draft. That didn’t stop Big Blue from selecting Engram with the 23rd overall pick. Engram is not a sexy pick. He’s not the big, bruising tight end that assists with 

Two players in particular were emotionally charged after hearing their name called by NFLCommissioner Roger Goodell on the giant stage erected on the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum. Garett Bolles, an offensive tackle from Utah, held his baby son Kingston in his powerful arms as he walked onto the stage after Goodell announced he had been taken with the 20th pick by the Denver Broncos. "I'm beyond grateful. This is just a dream come true," said the 6-foot-5, 300-pound Bolles, whose journey to the NFL took longer than most.
