Round 4, No. 124 Overall: G Phil Haynes, Wake Forest

Round 4, No. 132 Overall: FS Ugo Amadi, Oregon

Round 5, No. 142 Overall: LB Ben Burr-Kirven, Washington

Burr-Kirven: "I know I'm a guy who's hopefully going to be a core special teamer for them and go down and do the dirty work, cover kicks, block, all that kind of stuff. That's probably where it starts, and hopefully I earn the trust and get a chance to show what I can do on defense too."

Round 6, No. 209 Overall: DT Demarcus Christmas, Florida State

Homer: "I like to be very physical. I like to be very physical but I also like to cut on them and use moves if I have the opportunity. I think that my physicality sets that up down the road as the game goes on."
