Cleveland, which started out at No. 6 and traded back to No. 27, jumped up to No. 21 to select Baylor defensive tackle Phil Taylor.
Taylor is a classic 340-pound nose tackle going to a team which us switching from a 3-4 to a 4-3. Huh?
Guessing the call to Anthony Castanzo was placed by the Indianapolis official that actually made the pick _ quarterback Peyton Manning. He’d had enough of Tony Ugoh.
Castanzo, at No. 22, is the first left tackle selected. Usually a few left tackles are gone by this point. Tyron Smith, taken No. 9, was a right tackle at USC and is expected to play that position in Dallas.
Baylor guard Danny Watkins gets the call from Andy Reid. It’s a tossup as to which one weighs more. Watkins, like Cal’s Aaron Rodgers, went to Butte College.
Speaking of Cal, Cameron Jordan went a later-than-expected No. 24 to New Orleans, a team in need of a pass rush. A life of the party guy, Jordan is going to the ultimate party city.
