You saw the picks. You'll browse the quotes. You've probably heard the talking heads. Now, here are a few stories behind the stories from Thursday night's first round. NOTE: Point about this is dependant on the reporting and commentary Jay Glazer, Joel Klatt and I provided on the FOX Sports Radio broadcast of Thursday night's first round. Glazer accurately nailed 31 of 31 picks minutes before they were announced anywhere else.1. The Broncos weren't the only real team seeking to trade up to get Paxton Lynch. Deiondre' Hall Jersey The Cowboys were, indeed, on the phone as well as in the Lynch hunt. Dallas initially made calls to the Bills -- prior to the Bills continued the clock at 19th overall -- Chris Prosinski Jersey but the offer wasn't rich enough. Mike Klis of Denver 9 News reported the Browns were trying to come up from 32 to obtain Lynch, too. Once Seattle first viewed it could move back a bit but still get its guy (offensive tackle Germain Ifedi) five picks later, the Broncos were an all natural fit. Lynch (and revitalized agent Leigh Steinberg) goes to the defending Super Bowl champions, where he'll compete inside a quarterbacks room that currently consists of Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian.2. The Laremy Tunsil video rocked the top half of the draft.Just 13 minutes prior to the Rams were around the clock, the Tunsil video Daniel Braverman Jersey made its way online. The flurry of texts and calls from NFL coaches and front office personnel that came through Glazer's, Klatt's and my phones were wild. The manuscripts -- often just question marks or "huh" -- were the same reactions most fans had once they first viewed it. Information regarding the video's origins, when it was recorded and is not what when all can come in the coming days. But the teams within the top 10 didn't have Jeremy Langford Jersey the luxury to invest that sort of your time and onto it. They just knew it had become definitely Tunsil having a giant bong and a gas mask. No, thank you.Ryan Kelly?Scott CunninghamOhio State had five first-rounders this season; Alabama had just one. The large Ten scored victory over the SEC with this one. Probably the tide -- pun alert -- is popping.10. The Bengals scored the best double whammy of the evening.There's always a tale. Then there's the story behind the story. Then, there's the story behind the story, behind that story. It's no secret how the Bengals and Steelers feel about each other nowadays. And coming off arguably the most brutal wild-card game this league has seen -- one Eric Kush Jersey between two bitter division rivals that included multiple player ejections and foul play -- it's only perfect the two franchises visited battle yet again in Thursday night's NFL Draft.Unlike January's brutal playoff contest, that one happened in war rooms hundreds of miles from each other. Over the course of the 2010 draft proce s, it became no secret that the Steelers really liked William Jackson III, the electric cornerback from Houston. They simply didn't expect him to really be on the board at 25. GM Kevin Colbert, head coach Mike Adrian Amos Jersey Tomlin and defensive backs coach Carnell Lake all flew to Houston in March, took Jackson to dinner and attended his Pro Day. They were fans.Cincinnati, obviously, continued the time one pick before Pittsburgh. Though cornerback might not look like the biggest need on paper, the Bengals took a man that may have perfectly been the very best player on their own board. They also knew Pittsburgh really liked Jackson. So, Cincinnati, with one pick, not just improved its very own roster but additionally maybe kept its arch rival Sam Acho Jersey from obtaining the guy it would have loved to have seen drop. Pittsburgh opted for Artie Burns, the burner from Miami, a few minutes later. Tracking both cornerbacks' respective careers -- ??and playoff wins-- ?will be fun one in time to come.
