Bills select QB Nathan Peterman with the No. 171 pick, ending the slide of top remaining player on the board (No. 69 overall by ESPN). Peterman is an intriguing addition to a Bills quarterback depth chart that also includes 2016 fourth-round pick Cardale Jones and veteran T.J. Yates. Peterman doesn't have nearly the arm strength of Jones but is considered a good intermediate passer.

Steelers make clear James Conner is not a sentimental pick. "The tape told me what he was," RBs coach James Saxon said. "He runs the football downhill, he can bend, he can catch the football, he's tough, he's smart, he's a guy who can come here and work every day."

Steelers pick hometown cancer survivor Conner

The Steelers drafted James Conner in the third round Friday after he spent six months undergoing treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma before playing his last college season.

The Jaguars have four picks in the final four rounds of the NFL draft on Saturday. They have the third pick in the fourth round, the fourth pick in the fifth round, and two picks in the seventh round (fourth and 22nd). They traded their sixth-round pick to Seattle to move up one spot in the second round to select Alabama OT Cam Robinson. Players to watch in the fourth round include TE Jake Butt, CB Desmond King, and QB Nathan Peterman.

A lot of dreams came true today, but this one is our favorite. With the 105th pick, the Steelers draft Pitt RB James Conner.


Steelers keep RB James Conner at home

Conner is staying in Pittsburgh, as the former Panthers running back who battled cancer, was chosen by the hometown Steelers in the third round.

James Conner stays at Heinz Field with the Steelers. Had a great interview with him in September. Great story.

Pitt running back James Conner to Steelers, 105th overall. Great story. Cancer survivor stays home. And Le'Veon Bell gets a bruiser to back him up.

With Cal QB Davis Webb off the board, the Steelers could use one of their two late-third-round picks on a quarterback before most of them are gone. They very well might eschew one entirely, but Tennessee's Josh Dobbs and Pitt's Nate Peterman are available. The team met with both players during the pre-draft process.

The 49ers have back-to-back picks to open the third round and a whole lot of options. With Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer the only quarterback taken in the second round, the Niners could find their developmental prospect for coach Kyle Shanahan if they wanted to. Some of the signal callers still available as the Niners' pick approaches: Cal's Davis Webb, Pitt's Nathan Peterman, Tennessee's Joshua Dobbs and Miami's Brad Kaaya.

Is Friday the day the Browns, 49ers, Saints or Cardinals pick their QB of the future? DeShone Kizer, Joshua Dobbs, Nathan Peterman and Davis Webb lead the best signal-callers available headed into the second night of the NFL draft.
