NEW YORK -- It took a few hours on the final day of the NFL draft for A. T.J. Yeldon Jersey .J. McCarron, Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger to finally hear their names called. It took much longer, but Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to enter the draft, heard his in the seventh and final round. Sam was taken 249th out of 256 picks, by St. Louis. There was applause at Radio City Music Hall from the slim crowd on hand. Scouts had pegged him to be a mid- to late-round selection, but he didnt perform well at the combine; some questioned whether he would be drafted at all. The star quarterbacks of the SEC went earlier, but will be long shots to become early starters in the pros. McCarron led Alabama to two national titles, but had to wait until the 164th overall spot to be selected by Cincinnati. Georgias Murray went one pick earlier Saturday to Kansas City. LSUs Mettenberger didnt go until the sixth round, to Tennessee. Virginia Techs Logan Thomas, not nearly as accomplished as the SEC passers, was the first QB chosen on the last day, by Arizona in the fourth round. Murray had a penchant for big plays with the Bulldogs, but the SECs career passing leader tore his ACL on Nov. 8 and did not work out during the NFL combine. He figures to compete for a third-string job this year. "Theres no restrictions, no second thought when Im running, cutting," Murray said. "Its full-speed, full-go ahead." McCarron expects to learn behind Andy Dalton, who led the Bengals to three straight playoff berths for the first time in franchise history. "Im confident in myself, but at the same time, I know Andys the QB out there and I respect that," McCarron said. "All I want to do is go in and help us in whatever way I can. If that means me holding the clipboard for a couple of years and giving Andy reports during the week and watching film with him and helping him in any way I can, Im just ready to do it." Thomas comes out of school healthy, but the inconsistency that plagued his career hurt his draft stock. Thomas never really improved to the level expected with the Hokies after a strong debut. Hes big, with a strong arm, but is turnover prone. "Ive grown as a quarterback in this off-season," Thomas said. "Everybodys basing it off the season, which I understand. Thats whats on film. But this off-season was a chance I was able to really go refine some things." In all, 14 quarterbacks were selected. Early Saturday, many picks had ties to Clemson star receiver Sammy Watkins. Watkins, the fourth overall selection in the first round by Buffalo, saw his older brother, Florida cornerback Jaylen Watkins, taken by Philadelphia to open the fourth round. Philadelphia acquired the selection the previous day from Houston, trading its third-round pick (No. 83) for the Texans fourth- and fifth-round spots. "Today is a very big day for our family," Jaylen said. "I texted him (Thursday) before he went on stage and he just texted me ... were both excited for each other. We cant complain about anything that happened this year for us." The next pick, by Washington, was Sammy Watkins college teammate, cornerback Bashaud Breeland, who went up against the nations top wideout in practice for several years at Clemson. Watkins fellow receiver with the Tigers, Martavis Bryant, also went in the fourth round, to Pittsburgh. Andre Williams of Boston College, the nations leading rusher, went to the New York Giants, whose backfield has been plagued by injuries. Williams rushed for 2,177 yards and won the Doak Walker Award as Americas top running back in 2013, but he is considered a weak receiver. "Patience is a really valuable thing," Williams said. "It worked out the best possible way it could, no matter what round it ended up being." Arizonas KaDeem Carey, like Williams, an All-American runner, was taken four spots later by Chicago. Oregons DeAnthony Thomas went to Kansas City, ostensibly to replace departed Dexter McCluster. National champion Florida State had two players go in the first five picks Saturday: running back Devonta Freeman to Atlanta, and centre Bryan Stork, another All-American, to New England. Big 12 power Oklahoma, which was blanked in the first three rounds, broke through when the New York Jets drafted receiver Jalen Saunders. Another powerhouse program, Texas, did not have anyone taken, although its former quarterback, Garrett Gilbert, who transferred to SMU, was chosen at the end of the sixth round. While the Longhorns were looking for someone to be picked, Duke had a drafted player. When Buffalo made cornerback Ross Cockrell the 109th overall selection, it was the highest a Blue Devil had gone since offensive lineman Lennie Friedman went to Denver in the second round in 1999. Cockrell thought Duke making the Chick-Fil-A bowl helped his stock. "I think it opened a lot of eyes that this guy from Duke can actually play a little ball and will be able to compete at the next level," he said. The final player chosen, dubbed "Mr. Irrelevant," was Memphis safety Lonnie Ballentine. He was taken by the Texans. There were a record 102 early entrants into this draft, and 61 were selected.

The 25-year-old Varlamov is thriving under first-year coach and Hall of Fame goaltender Patrick Roy, posting a 26-9-5 record with a 2. Jarrod Wilson Jersey . Johns IceCaps erased an early two-goal deficit to come from behind and defeat the host Portland Pirates 5-4 on Saturday in American Hockey League action.NEWARK, N.J. - John Tavares was good and lucky, and that was just what the New York Islanders needed to beat the New Jersey Devils.Tavares forced overtime with a somewhat lucky goal moments after a power play expired, and then scored a magnificent unassisted winner with 1:55 left in the extra period to lead the Islanders to a 3-2 victory Friday night.The Islanders, who are in second place in the Eastern Conference, rallied twice from one-goal deficits in ending a two-game losing streak. And it was no surprise that their best player was the difference.Were a different team than weve been in the last few years, Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. This was different. I could feel that we were coming back. I could feel that we were generating the play. It was just a matter of time. Fortunately, it was overtime. John made a great play, made a great shot and that was it. Thats what he does. Hes a great player.Tavares stole the puck from defenceman Adam Larsson near the corner behind the Devils net, quickly turned and roared into the right circle, snapping a shot over the shoulder of rookie Keith Kinkaid, who stopped 28 shots.I stripped him (Larsson), then made a move toward the net, Tavares said. I first looked and saw (Calvin) de Haan and thought I might get it to him, but I turned toward the net and hit the corner of the net. It was a nice goal. I felt like we were right there. I wasnt expecting that to happen.Larsson took the blame, saying Tavares got good body position on him.That was something I would want again, Kinkaid said of the game-winning goal. I want to make that save there.Tavares had tied it at 2 with 6:13 left in regulation, his 18th of the season, moments after a penalty to Dainius Zubrus expired.Kinkaid had expected a shot off the glass behind the net to bounce to hiis left. Stitched Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys. It went right — right to Tavares behind the goal line, and he banked the puck into the net off the back of the goaltenders leg.I knew he didnt pick it up right away and I thought I might catch him, so I just stuck with it, shot it and it went in off his leg, Tavares said. Sometimes, you have to be lucky rather than good. Josh Bailey got the other goal for New York and Jaroslav Halak made 21 saves as the Islanders beat the Devils for the third time in as many games this season.Scott Gomez and Travis Zajac scored for the Devils, who lost for the second time in as many nights.Gomez had given the Devils a 2-1 lead with a shot into an empty net thanks in part to a miscue by Halak. The goaltender had the puck on his stick behind the goal line when Adam Henrique caught him off guard, stole it and found Gomez alone in front for a slam dunk.The Islanders had outplayed the Devils in the first two periods, but trailed 1-0 on a goal by Zajac.It took only 62 seconds for New York to tie the game in the third period. Tavares won a faceoff in the right circle and the puck found its way toward the left point. De Haan took a slap shot in stride and Bailey, who had missed the last game with an upper-body injury, deflected it into the net.Zajac gave the Devils the lead at 11:57 of the second period. Zajac took the puck from Kyle Okposo, who was playing without a stick, sent a pass behind the net to Patrik Elias and then took a return pass and beat Halak.NOTES: Tavares assist was the 199th of his career. ... This was only Kinkaids second start in the last 10 games. ... This was the fifth game of a seven-game road trip for New York (3-2). New Jersey is 0-1-2 vs. New York this season. ...
