Forget T.J. Watt, the Packers have taken his Wisconsin teammate Vince Biegel, who some believe is a more complete player than Watt. That's the first pick in the fourth round, No. 108 overall, and it's the fourth straight defensive player the Packers have taken this weekend.

J.J. Watt, who played with Antonio Brown briefly at Central Michigan, texted Brown to 'look over my brother (T.J.), make sure to haze him a little extra for me.' The Steelers drafted T.J. Watt No. 30 overall on Thursday night. "He plays with so much energy and passion, and he'll only get better," J.J. said of his little brother.

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said he told Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst months ago that he had a first-round pick in T.J. Watt. So, the Steelers took him 30th overall. "There's a burning intensity with this guy," Colbert said.

Sean Payton said the Saints were also considering Alabama LB Reuben Foster and UCLA OLB Takkarist McKinley, along with Wisconsin OT Ryan Ramczyk, as pick No. 32 approached before the other two went off the board. But after that, there was a clear gap between Ramczyk and everyone else. He said they had Ramczyk rated in the top half of Round 1, and all the scouts agreed he was a first-rounder.

The Saints end a wild Round 1 with a bit of a yawn. But they filled a need with Wisconsin OT Ryan Ramczyk, since their starting RT Zach Strief is 33 years old. Ramczyk (6-6, 310) played just one year of FBS football after transferring from UW-Stevens Point and shunning a possible career as a welder. But he was projected as a first-rounder because of his size and foot speed.

The Steelers take Wisconsin OLB T.J. Watt - brother of one J.J. Watt - with the 30th overall pick. Pass-rush help was on the menu for Pittsburgh, which needs an eventual James Harrison replacement. Though some personnel evaluators believed Watt was a second-round pick and the Steelers had several cornerback options available, Watt has great size (6-foot-4, 252) and tenacity and tested as an impressive athlete at the combine.
