Texas junior LB Jordan Hicks will miss the remainder of the season with a torn Achilles.

Hicks injured his left Achilles against Kansas State. The junior is one of Texas' top defenders, but he just cannot stay healthy. No timetable is set for Hicks' return, however, Achilles injuries take plenty of time to heal.

Oregon CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu's $3 million injury insurance policy was triggered when he wasn't taken on Day 2.

ESPN.com reported that International Specialty Insurance projected Ekpre-Olomu as the No. 12 overall pick when they signed the policy with Oregon and the prospect. For falling out of Round 1, IEO was set to recoup a portion of that policy. When he tumbled out of Day 2, it guaranteed he'd get it all. Ekpre-Olomu, who tore his ACL last December, went No. 241 overall to the Browns.

Despite having slipped to the Vikings in the fourth round, NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock maintains that Pittsburgh OT T.J. Clemmings "is a starting right tackle in this league Day 1."

It's high praise, and a non-subtle hint to Matt Kalil and Phil Loadholt that they better get ready for competition, but Mayock did add that Clemmings has "a lot of work to do, especially in technique." Clemmings has a stress fracture in his foot, probably the primary reason that he fell from potential Round 1 pick into Day 2. "He played extremely well as an offensive tackle at Pitt in games," Mayock said. "Went to the Senior Bowl and got undressed. Why? Because he's only been an offensive player for two years. He's very raw from a technique perspective." NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah added that Clemmings is "a right tackle who can really help you in the run game. That's going to take a lot of pressure off their young quarterback (Teddy Bridgewater)."

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora argues that LSU OL La'EL Collin is better off having gone undrafted as opposed to getting taken on Day 3.

Collins, who will meet with Baton Rouge police Monday to discuss the murder of his ex-girlfriend (he's not a suspect), tumbled out of the draft as teams shied away from a prospect who didn't get an opportunity to exonerate himself in advance. "Collins is actually in excellent shape to dictate the start of his career and bear considerable fiscal rewards as well," La Canfora wrote. Collins lost out out on millions in not going in the first round, as expected, but he can now choose his own team if he's indeed cleared in the case (in that scenario, all 32 teams would be interested). He will also be granted free agency after three years, one year sooner than had he been drafted. Collins won't get a bonus and will be locked into salaries of $435,000 in 2016, $525,000 in 2017 and $615,000 in 2017, but La Canfora breaks down how he can recoup that money in the long-term in the column below.

Dolphins selected Boise State RB Jay Ajayi with the No. 149 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

A day-two talent based on tape, measurables and stats, Ajayi plummeted due to concerns over his right knee, which NFL Network's Mike Mayock has reported is "bone on bone." Ajayi (6'0/221) turned 678 college carries into 3,796 yards (5.60 YPC) and 50 TDs, adding 73 catches. He ran 4.57 at the Combine, also impressing in the vertical (39") and broad (10'1") jumps with one of the fastest 20-yard shuttle times (4.10) by a running back. On tape, Ajayi looks like Marshawn Lynch with a compact, muscular build but isn't quite as physical. More of a loose-hipped finesse back, Ajayi is an extremely aggressive runner with light feet and an ability to change speeds on a dime. Ajayi fumbled 11 times at Boise and must tighten up his pass protection, but could eventually be a three-down back if he works out the kinks and stays healthy. He's competition for Lamar Miller, but perhaps not an immediate 2015 threat.

Packers traded up to select UCLA QB Brett Hundley with the No. 147 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Hundley (6'3/226) made 40 starts at UCLA, completing 67.6 percent of his passes with a 75:25 TD-to-INT ratio and 30 more rushing scores. He absorbed a whopping 125 sacks in three college seasons, also fumbling 29 times. Although Hundley is strong armed and a terrific athlete, he showed zero feel for the pocket at UCLA and completed an abysmal 32.6 percent of his throws on the run. Smart (26 Wonderlic) with NFL-caliber tools, Hundley is a multi-year project who needs to ride the bench for at least a season or two, and will be afforded that time with the Packers.

Vikings selected Pittsburgh OT T.J. Clemmings with the No. 110 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Clemmings was viewed by many as a fringe first-round prospect, but fell because of reports of concerns with his foot. On top of the injury, he's a project as a pass blocker. Clemmings (6'5/309) was a decorated high school basketball recruit and began his college career at defensive end before converting to right tackle as a junior. He made 26 starts there for Pitt, earning first-team All ACC as a senior. Clemmings has huge hands (10 3/8") vines for arms (35 1/8"), and is an elite athlete for the position with 5.14 speed, a 32 1/2-inch vertical, and a 9-foot-3 broad jump. NFL.com's Lance Zierlein -- the media's premier O-Line evaluator -- believes Clemmings "has the physical traits to become a Pro Bowl left tackle" and likened him to stud Texans LT Duane Brown.

Texans selected Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong with the No. 70 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Strong (6'2/217) played two seasons at ASU after transferring from JUCO, piling up 157 catches for 2,287 yards (14.6 YPR) and 17 TDs. He dropped only 6-of-132 targets in 2014. Not especially agile or a smooth separator on tape, Strong surprised at the Combine with a 4.44 forty, 42-inch vertical, and 10-foot-1 broad jump. NFL Films' Greg Cosell has suggested that Strong's inability to create space from defenders is fixable through improved route running. Strong's current strengths are winning contested catches and untapped upside after dominating the Pac 12 as a 19- and 20-year-old.

Cowboys selected Nebraska DE Randy Gregory with the No. 60 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

The Cowboys stop Gregory's fall as they had a dire need off the edge after RE Greg Hardy's 10-game suspension. Based on talent alone, Gregory was a top-10 prospect in this class before off-field character issues torpedoed his stock. Gregory (6'5/235) spent two seasons as a Cornhusker after transferring from JUCO, earning first-team All-Big Ten in each year. He posted 17.5 career sacks and 29 tackles for loss. Gregory ran 4.64 at the Combine with a 36 1/2-inch vertical, showing burst in a 10-foot-5 broad jump. Long armed (34") and lean, Gregory is built like a cross between Jason Taylor and Leonard Little and can convert speed to power. He also held up well as a college run defender despite playing at around 220 last year. Gregory has loads of room for growth. He will enter the NFL already in the league's substance-abuse program after testing positive for marijuana at the Combine.

Lions selected Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah with the No. 54 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Abdullah (5'9/205) parlayed 813 career carries into 4,588 yards (5.64 YPC) and 39 touchdowns for Nebraska, adding 73 receptions. Although Abdullah is long-speed deficient (4.60), he registered the highest SPARQ score among running backs at the Combine, and offers an elite combination of lateral agility and lower-body explosion. He was one of the best all-around football players we viewed on tape, running inside with determined decisiveness. He has future feature back potential if he cleans up his pass pro and ball security after fumbling 24 times in college. If it comes together, Abdullah can be a more elusive version of Ray Rice. As a rookie, he'll battle Theo Riddick to pick up Reggie Bush's pass-catching slack opposite Joique Bell.

Giants traded up to draft Alabama SS Landon Collins with the No. 33 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Collins (6'0/228) made 23 starts in Nick Saban's secondary, seeing action at both free and strong safety en route to 8.5 career TFLs and five interceptions. He was a consensus first-team All American in 2014. Collins ran 4.53 at the Combine with a 35-inch vertical and 10-foot broad jump. An aggressive, downhill safety and efficient tackler, Collins is best suited to play close to the line of scrimmage. He has some hip stiffness and lacks man-cover skills. Still, Collins projects as a plus NFL starter and should become an IDP contributor immediately, filling a huge hole in the Giants' secondary at strong safety. New York fielded the league's leakiest run defense in 2014.

LSU OL La'EL Collin is the No. 3 available player heading into Day 2 on Josh Norris' board, but the analyst adds that "undrafted is a real possibility."

Collins will meet with Baton Rouge police on Monday, two days after the draft concludes, regarding the murder of his ex-girlfriend. Collins is not a suspect. If that remains so through the fact-checking process, this development in his life is shattering: While grieving the violent loss of a woman he once loved, Collins' professional career is beginning in turmoil and he will have lost several million dollars guaranteed as a result of the timing. There is too much money at stake -- now we're talking billions -- for NFL teams to invest a premium pick in a player with such serious and unresolved legal questions still unanswered. Though it would have broken the league's sanctified protocols, the NFL would have done right by all parties involved if they'd allowed Collins to enter the supplemental draft. Inaction while one man is unable to clear his name has resulted in the tying of hands of all 32 franchises as well as a gifted prospect, who can't do much except say he wasn't involved.
