The Latest: Green Bay picks Badger Vince Biegel
PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Latest on the NFL draft (all times Eastern):
Three picks into the fourth round, Jacksonville drafted a Heisman Trophy finalist. Oklahoma receiver Dede Westbrook finished fourth and the Heisman voting, won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's best receiver and was an All-American.
The Sooner also comes with baggage. He was accused of domestic violence by the mother of his two children in 2012 and 2013, before he came to Oklahoma as a junior college transfer. On the field, Westbrook is only about 180 pounds and there are concerns about his ability to be beat physical cornerbacks.
Cheesehead to the Packers.
Green Bay stayed in-state to open the fourth round of the NFL draft Saturday, taking Wisconsin linebacker Vince Biegel. He comes off a season shortened by a broken foot, but was a standout for the Badgers before getting hurt.
The round began with an introduction from three of Philly's football idols: Troy Vincent, now in charge of the NFL's football operations, Brian Westbrook and Brian Dawkins. Dawkins led an impromptu version of ''Fly Eagles Fly,'' and Westbrook dared anyone representing the Cowboys to stand in front of the big crowd.
''If anybody from Dallas steps to this podium in my city, we are going to give them a true Philadelphia welcome,'' Westbrook promised in response to former Cowboys receiver Drew Pearson taunting the fans when announcing a Dallas pick on Friday night.
Including compensatory picks, which now can be traded, there will be 253 selections overall. Denver owns the final spot, Mr. Irrelevant.
