ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Bills rookie head coach Sean McDermott filled a need in Buffalo's backfield and added two valuable picks in overseeing his first NFL draft. In using the 27th pick to select LSU cornerback Tre'Davious White on Thursday, McDermott also believes he addressed the issue of character he's been attempting to instill in what had been an undisciplined team in the three months since replacing Rex Ryan.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- DE-FENSE, DE-FENSE. That's going to be the area of concentration in this draft, in the first round and through much of the proceedings in Philadelphia. Indeed, the first half-dozen or so selections could come from that side of the ball. That's often the fallout when there are no slam-dunk quarterbacks available.

1, 12. CLEVELAND BROWNS (1-15) LAST SEASON: Following 0-14 start under first-year coach Hue Jackson, Browns barely avoided becoming only second team to lose all 16 games. Owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam vowed to be patient with new front office and coaching staff and were mostly true to word as team underwent minimal offseason changes.
