Here's the draft order:
No. 8 Jake Locker, QB, Washington: Tennessee
No. 9 Tyron Smith., OT, USC: Dallas
No. 17 Nate Solder, OT, Colorado: New England
No. 24 Cameron Jordan, DE, California: New Orleans
No. 27 Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado: Baltimore
Kiper also projects the second round, which starts Friday at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN (3 p.m. PT).
Kiper has Arizona DE Brooks Reed going first in the second round -- 33rd overall -- to New England. Other Pac-12 players in his second round: UCLA safety Rahim Moore to Houston at No. 42, Oregon State DT Stephen Paea to Oakland at No. 48 and Utah CB Brandon Burton to Philadelphia at No. 54.
Who is missing? Well what about UCLA LB Akeem Ayers, who was once considered a sure first-round pick.
Some draft links:
Some draft winners and losers.
Titans: Why Locker? "His leadership, his toughness, his smarts and his talent."
Smith is confident as he heads to Dallas.
Solder is happy with the Patriots.
Jordan is one reason the Saints were big first-round winners.
The Ravens took a risk by drafting Smith.
