Since head coach Dan Mullen arrived at Mississippi State, the Bulldogs have produced at least one NFL draft pick each of the last five years, including six top-100 selections over that span. That streak will be extended another year with the 2015 class and likely make it eight top-100 picks in the Mullen era with defensive end Preston Smith and linebacker Benardrick McKinney projected as top-60 draft selections.
Bills general manager Doug Whaley confirmed the team will exercise the 2016 option on cornerback Stephon Gilmore, reports ESPN.com. Gilmore will earn just over $11 million in 2016, which will be his fifth year in the league.
Despite rumors that the Titans will select a quarterback with their second overall pick in the 2015 draft, current starter Zach Mettenberger is playing the role quite decisively in the offseason. Included on his agenda has been organizing workouts with his fellow offensive teammates.
