Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema has refused to send Oregon State game tape from the Badgers' week one win over Northern Iowa.

As customary, programs usually exchange game tape from the prior week's performance, but since Oregon State's showdown against Nicholls Sate was postponed due to Hurricane Isaac, Bielema felt it was unfair to give something away since he would not receive anything in return. Northern Iowa held Wisconsin to less than four yards per carry, so it is certainly a game worth watching to note the defensive success, even if the television angle is the only tape available.

Jets selected Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg with the No. 51 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Hackenberg (6'4/223) looked like a future No. 1 overall NFL pick under Bill O'Brien before spending the last two seasons struggling mightily in James Franklin's offense. In 2014-2015, Hackenberg completed just 54.8% of his throws with a 6.53 YPA and 28:21 TD-to-INT ratio. As a 38-game starter, Hackenberg's career record was 21-17. Although Hackenberg is a plus athlete with NFL size and arm strength, he is a scattershot ball locator with major technical flaws and absorbed 104 career sacks. Hackenberg offers growth potential -- he turned 21 in February whereas Carson Wentz will turn 24 later this year -- but he is clearly a multi-year project.

Titans selected Alabama RB Derrick Henry with the No. 45 overall pick in the 2016 Draft.

Henry earned the Heisman Trophy for the 2015 national champs, finishing his three-year career with a rushing line of 603-3,591-42 (5.96 YPC). Drawing comparisons ranging from Brandon Jacobs to Christian Okoye to Curtis Enis, Henry has immense running talent but a limited passing-game resume (17 career catches) and a lumbering style near the line of scrimmage that renders him blocking dependent. Henry is an incredible athlete for his size, running 4.54 in Indy with an absurd 10-foot-10 broad jump and 37-inch vertical. Henry also excelled as a pass blocker in Alabama's pro-style offense, routinely swallowing edge rushers.

Bills selected Alabama ILB Reggie Ragland with the No. 41 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Ragland (6'1/247) was 2015's SEC Defensive Player of the Year, moving from weak-side to middle linebacker as a senior and finishing his career with 17.5 tackles for loss, four sacks, and three forced fumbles. Ragland weighed near 260 at Alabama, but dropped 12 pounds before the Combine to run 4.72 with a 9-foot-8 broad jump. An efficient tackler with some nastiness to his game, Ragland's shortcomings are average play speed and deficient pass coverage. Ragland reminds of Rey Maualuga as a likely two-down 'Mike' who may need to leave the field in passing situations.

Jaguars selected UCLA LB Myles Jack with the No. 36 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Jack (6'1/245) made 28 college starts -- 27 at linebacker and one at running back -- excelling at both positions with a 5.7 YPC average and 11 TDs on 68 career carries, and utter dominance as a three-down outside linebacker for Jim Mora II. Before Jack tore his anterior meniscus three games into his 2015 junior campaign, he showed the ability to cover backs in the flats and receivers in the slot, while laying wood on the ground and affecting games as a blitzer. Not yet of legal drinking age, Jack's rookie-year impact will be tied his knee rehab. Pre draft, Jack was able to dominate the broad (10'4") and vertical (40") jumps, but couldn't run the forty.

Cowboys selected Notre Dame OLB Jaylon Smith with the No. 34 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Smith (6'2/223) earned the 2015 Butkus Award as the nation's top linebacker, finishing his three-year career with 24.5 tackles for loss as a 39-game starter. Unfortunately, Smith tore his ACL and LCL in January's Fiesta Bowl and won't be available for his rookie season. Due to nerve damage in the knee, there is concern Smith may never play again if his nerve doesn't "wake up." On game tape, Smith was an instinctive playmaker who drew comparisons to ex-49ers ILB Patrick Willis. To make good on his once-limitless promise, Smith is going to need good fortune. He was reportedly diagnosed with "drop-foot" syndrome at the Combine.

Browns selected Oklahoma State DE/OLB Emmanuel Ogbah with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Ogbah (6'4/273) earned 2015 co-Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, setting a school record for quarterback hurries and logging 28 sacks in 36 career starts. Ogbah shredded the Combine, ranking top three among defensive linemen in the forty (4.63), broad jump (10'1"), and vertical (35.5"). Ogbah has go-go-gadget arms (35 1/2") and shows an ability to convert his speed into power, but is too frequently washed out in run defense and shows a limited array of pass-rush moves. Each of the analytics-minded Browns' first two draft picks have checked boxes for both high-level college production and high-level measurables.

NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport reports that the Cowboys are attempting to trade up to the No. 32 pick with the Cleveland Browns.

Pick No. 32 will be the first pick when the second round kicks off Friday night. Per Rapoport, the Cowboys are eyeing a pass-rusher. Among the available talents that would fit that bill, Eastern Kentucky edge rusher Noah Spence or perhaps Boise State edge rusher Kamalei Correa.

The Tuscaloosa News' Andrew Bone and Aaron Suttles reports that Alabama DL coach Bo Davis stepped down due to possible recruiting violations.

According to Bone and Suttles, Alabama has launched an internal investigation to explore potential recruiting violations, with the NCAA also looking into the matter. In a predictably unenlightening statement regarding Davis' resignation, HC Nick Saban said, "Bo Davis has submitted his letter of resignation. We appreciate all the contributions he made to the program and wish him and his family the very best in the future." This is a developing story and more information should come down to pike over the coming days.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that Auburn T Shon Coleman could be in for a slide out of Day 2.

"While [Coleman] has first-round skills," Pauline wrote, "I'm told the knee injury, which slowed him during the run-up to the draft, has been red-flagged by a number of teams." The 6-foot-5, 307-pounder tore his MCL in 2015 and underwent surgery following the end of the season.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline hears that Samford CB James Bradberry could be "the surprise pick in Day 2."

"Rated by most (including yours truly) as a middle-round selection, I'm told several teams are considering Bradberry in the second round," Pauline wrote on Friday morning. The 6-foot-1, 211 pounder took visits to the Dolphins and Titans earlier in April. He could potentially shift over to safety at the next level, though that is not a given.

NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport reports that the Cowboys tried to trade back into the first round to draft Memphis QB Paxton Lynch.

The Cowboys were unable to complete the trade, however. The Broncos ultimately swapped picks with the Seahawks to draft Lynch. While Dallas might not have consummated the deal for the Memphis gunslinger, they are clearly in the market for a quarterback and could target an arm like Penn State's Christian Hackenberg or Michigan State's Connor Cook on Day 2.
