    Complete Draft Recap

    Here's the complete list of draft picks (PLUS RUMORED UDFA THUS FAR)

    Round 1, Pick 26: Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

    Round 2, Pick 59: Jack Mewhort, OL, THE Ohio State University

    Round 3, Pick 90: Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss

    Round 4, Pick 127: Traded in the Montori Hughes trade last year

    Round 5, Pick 166: Jonathan Newsome, DE/OLB, Ball State

    “He’s able to rush the passer. He can bend the edge. He’s athletic,” said Grigson. “We think he has good flexibility (at) rush or sam. He can really drop, rush. He throws his face in there, can set the edge some.”

    Newsome was an all-conference performer who had 16.5 sacks and 24 tackles for losses in his last two years.



    “This guy’s a player,” said Grigson. “He played against some pretty good tackles. He’s done it against good competition. He can run, a good special teamer. There’s a lot of value there.”



    Newsome was forthcoming about some off-field matters early in his Ohio State days that caused him to reassess his values.



    Doing so led him to Ball State and a career revival. Pagano said the organization addressed the matter with Newsome at length in the evaluation process and that everything was settled.
    Round 6, Pick 203: Andrew Jackson, ILB, Western Kentucky


    Jackson started 33-of-37 games at middle linebacker, totaling more than 300 tackles, 6.5 sacks and 43 tackles for losses.

    “We knew about him (for) a couple of years,” said Grigson. “All (his) grades were high. He’s a really tough, hard-nosed player. He’s physical, all about business on the field. He plays with an edge. He’s a 255-pound thumper. You need to have size in there. You have to stop the run, and he’s tailor-made to stop the run. He’s cat-quick in a short area.”
    Round 7, Pick 232: Ultrick John, OT, Georgia State




    John was the final selection and fits the club’s philosophy of versatility at positions along the line.



    “He to me is true left tackle prospect, a developmental guy,” said Grigson. “He’s also played center and guard. He goes along with the theme. He’s competitive, has room to grow. I’d like to see how he looks a year from now in our weight program. We feel he has upside. He has an athletic base. He’s kind of an unknown. The athletic core, character and size are there.”

In 2012, he earned honorable mention All-Sun Belt Conference (SBC), Third-Team All-SBC by CollegeSportsMadness.com and Second-Team All-SBC by Phil Steele. He started all 12 games and was part of a line that tanked second in the nation in fewest sacks allowed, while also paving the way for three different 100-yard rushers.
