MENELIK WATSON School/Position: Florida State, offensive tackle Height/weight: 6-5, 314 pounds Resume: Watson's journey began as a youth soccer player in England, brought him to Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., on a basketball scholarship, to Saddleback Junior College to play football, and eventually to play Florida. Considered extremely talented -- he can make blocks 20 yards downfield -- but also very raw. Has played just 19 games of college football including eight games at Saddleback. Started 12 of 13 games for Florida State last season. Quote: "I was at the draft yesterday and I really didn't want to go because I'm not into all the glitz and glamour. I'm just a work guy. I really want to get to work." -- Menelik Watson.
Sio Moore School, position: Connecticut, linebacker Height/Weight: 6-foot, 245 pounds Resume: An explosive player with 44 career tackles for losses and 14.5 sacks while playing 41 games with 31 starts for the Huskies.

Had 86 tackles and 16 tackles for losses as a junior. Born Snorsio Alston Moore in Liberia, his first name means "God is good." Quote: "I love the game of Von Miller and Darryl Washington -- two guys who play the game very athletically. They can play on the line, pass rush, cover. That's something I want to prove I can do as well at a high level.'' -- Sio Moore.
