NFL Draft: Our four area teams make their second/third round selections
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The 2019 NFL Draft is underway in Nashville.
Here’s a look at who our four area teams selected in Round Two and Three:
Philadelphia was the only area team to make a selection in the second round — and they made two of them.
The Eagles used pick No. 53 on Penn State running back Miles Sanders and their 57th overall selection on J.J. Arecega-whiteside, a wide receiver out of Stanford. They did not have any picks in the third round.
The Steelers used their first second-round pick (66th overall) on Diontae Johnson, a wide receiver out of Toledo. They then selected Michigan State cornerback Justin Layne at No. 83.
Pittsburgh did not have any picks in the third round.
The Redskins used pick No. 76 (a second-rounder) on Ohio State wide receiver Terry Mclaurin.
Baltimore didn’t have a pick in the second round.
They had two in the third, though. The Ravens used pick No. 85 on Jaylon Ferguson, a defensive end out of Louisiana Tech. They then traded up to the 93rd overall selection, where Baltimore took Notre Dame wide receiver Miles Boykin.
