The Eagles traded up three spots to take Mississippi St. DT Fletcher Cox at No. 12, making it two big defensive linemen picked in a row. So, no defensive linemen in the first 10 picks, but now two straight. The top outside linebacker, Melvin Ingram, from South Carolina, is still on the board, but he may not be for long.
Update: Arizona has taken Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd at No. 13, so for now the run on big guys/pass rushers is on hold. Did St. Louis, at No. 14, just lose another receiver they had in mind for Sam Bradford? Justin Blackmon got taken one spot ahead of them at No. 5, so the Rams traded back from 6 to 14. Now Floyd goes at 13. Bradford may be getting frustrated.
