The players chosen in the first round Thursday of the NFL draft:
1) Jaguars — Travon Walker, DE, 6-foot-5, 275 pounds, Georgia
Breakdown: Speed and athleticism for his size and build are prototypical and he could probably add some weight without losing much of what makes him special.
Trey Hendrickson was once a touchdown-catching tight end in high school, a big-bodied target who was tough to take down.
Demolishing quarterbacks, though, just always felt better than spiking footballs.
