The Vikings took Edmond Robinson in 2015 with the 232nd pick, the same spot they took Elijah Lee on Saturday. The 6-foot-3 Robinson could provide a template for Lee, another rangy linebacker who will have to learn how to play with more power in the NFL. Lee's range in the open field could make him a candidate to play on passing downs, as he hopes to follow in Robinson's footsteps.

Bengals add Jordan Willis to D-line

Mel Kiper Jr. likes the work ethic of Cincinnati's third-round pick, although the Kansas State defensive end's tape isn't as impressive as his workout numbers.

The Jaguars pick fourth in the third round behind Cleveland and back-to-back picks by San Francisco. Possibilities: DE Jordan Willis (if he makes it), G Dan Feeney, TE Jake Butt.

Beyond the QB's, plenty of options for the Niners here as well, though the safety market dried up a bit in the second round. Cornerbacks like Akhello Weatherspoon and Desmond King are still on the board. Other players to watch: Toledo RB Kareem Hunt, Eastern Washington WR Cooper Kupp, Clemson TE Jordan Leggett and Iowa TE George Kittle. Kansas State pass rusher Jordan Willis also still on the board.

Bill Snyder says he never in his career entertained the idea of becoming an athletic director. On Monday, K-State introduced Gene Parker, a former Iowa deputy, as its new AD. Snyder and Parker talked last week, but they did not discuss the topic of a succession plan for the 77-year-old Snyder, the coach said. "I don't spend any time on it right now," Snyder said of his eventual retirement. He underwent treatment for throat cancer over the past several months.

Bill Snyder, meeting with the media for the last time before the Kansas State spring game on Saturday, is never one to paint a rosy picture that doesn't exist. "The offense is struggling right now," Snyder said when asked of his team's progress through three weeks of spring practice. The Wildcats continue to use Alex Delton as their top QB, with returning starter Jesse Ertz missing this spring because of injury.
