The Redskins drafted linebacker Ryan Anderson and corner Fabian Moreau on Friday.

Love this quote from Jets WR ArDarius Stewart , a third-round pick from Alabama. Asked what he will bring to the Jets, he said, "I'm bringing a load of, you know, awesomeness. That's all I can tell you." He went on to say he's "very physical. I'm bringing a lot of physicality to the game. I'm bringing that defensive mentality to the offensive side of the ball." Stewart said he compares his style to Hines Ward.

The Jaguars have four picks in the final four rounds of the NFL draft on Saturday. They have the third pick in the fourth round, the fourth pick in the fifth round, and two picks in the seventh round (fourth and 22nd). They traded their sixth-round pick to Seattle to move up one spot in the second round to select Alabama OT Cam Robinson. Players to watch in the fourth round include TE Jake Butt, CB Desmond King, and QB Nathan Peterman.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he likes how Ryan Anderson defends the run. "He's one of the best I've seen setting the edge," Gruden said.

Ravens are certainly staying in their comfort level, and this goes beyond going with defense in the first three rounds. Three of Baltimore's first four picks came from Alabama or Michigan, where the Ravens get some of their best information. General manager Ozzie Newsome remains connected with his alma mater in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and John Harbaugh's brother Jim coaches the Wolverines.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said linebacker Ryan Anderson is not a "measurables guy." But he said he's mentally strong and will brings attitude to the defense.

I really like the Jaguars' second-round pick (OT Cam Robinson), which addresses one of the team's biggest needs.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens coach John Harbaugh jokingly said people lined up to hug offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg after the team took a defensive player in its first four picks. On the second third-round selection, Mornhinweg noticed Alabama pass rusher Tim Williams was sitting high on the board. "Marty came over and said, 'Hey, you've got to take that guy," Harbaugh said. "It's a team effort and a team game."

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said the team was convinced to take Alabama pass rusher Tim Williams after he was upfront about his issues during a pre-draft visit. Williams was arrested for a misdemeanor gun charge in September, and he acknowledged that he has failed multiple drug tests. "He will accept that challenge as to not to allow that to happen," Newsome said. "But I can't sit here and guarantee it."

Tim Williams is a powerful edge rusher

The Ravens took another defensive stalwart in the third round in the Alabama linebacker, although Mel Kiper Jr. cautions that he needs to focus in order to find NFL success.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

OLB Tim Williams has a high-ceiling as an edge rusher in the Ravens system. Williams shows a quick burst off the ball on tape and he can set up offensive tackles to create an inside path to the QB. Good value here for Baltimore in the third round.

Jets get a speedster in ArDarius Stewart

Gang Green added some speed with Alabama's Stewart, who is a tough competitor with the burst, determination and top-end speed to produce after the catch.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Stunner: The Jets didn't pick a safety. With the first of two third-round picks, they selected Alabama WR ArDarius Stewart. This is a solid value and it adds another potential weapon to their young receiving corps. Stewart has excellent run-after-the-catch ability, which makes him a nice fit in a West Coast offense.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Who needs offense? Not the Ravens apparently. Baltimore selected Alabama pass rusher Tim Williams with the No. 78 overall pick. That means the Ravens have taken a defensive player with their first four picks after making defense the focus in free agency. Joe Flacco said he wasn't going to lobby the Ravens about addressing the offense in the draft. Maybe he should've reconsidered.

Giants plug hole with DT Dalvin Tomlinson

With the loss of Johnathan Hankins in free agency, the Giants added Alabama's Tomlinson, who had 62 tackles and three sacks as a senior.

Redskins second-round pick Ryan Anderson said, "I'm a playmaker. I'm a game changer. I'm the ultimate football player." Anderson will play outside linebacker for Washington.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

LB Ryan Anderson doesn't have upper-tier athleticism, but he was super productive at Alabama. Tough at the point of attack, some versatility there to rush off the edge and strong versus the run game. Anderson should also help the Redskins immediately as a core special teams player. High-effort player on tape.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The Reskins selected outside linebacker Ryan Anderson with the 49th selection. Anderson recorded 19 tackles for a loss with nine sacks and an interception for Alabama last season. He's the second Crimson Tide defender drafted by the Redskins, with lineman Jonathan Allen selected at 17. The Redskins wanted to improve their pass rush and third down defense in the draft and with their first two picks that's what they've done.

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Funny quote from Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell after drafting OT Cam Robinson: "As you guys [the media] have told me for three years now we've got to upgrade the offensive line so I'm starting to listen to you." We (the media) advocated signing Alex Mack and/Kelechi Osemele in 2016. Both made the Pro Bowl.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bengals selected running back Joe Mixon so now the Redskins are on the clock with the 49th overall pick. The Redskins want another outside linebacker. Alabama's Ryan Anderson and Kansas State's Jordan Willis are on the board. Anderson would be a good selection.

Cam Robinson brings versatility

The Jaguars traded up for, who played 43 career games at left tackle in three seasons at Alabama. Mel Kiper Jr. sees teams taking advantage of his versatility and using him either at right tackle or guard.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Even after acquiring Branden Albert, Jacksonville believed it needed a long-term answer at left tackle. Cam Robinson seems like a shot at finding that. Can develop if not ready right away, maybe play right tackle in the meantime.
