The Huskies baseball team took a split with Concordia – St. Paul on April 21, losing a close game one 4-2 and the getting revenge in game two 11-1.

1.) Kansas City Chiefs – Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M This a boring pick, but will prove beneficial. Just look at what Matt Kalil did for the Vikings last season. If Alex Smith doesn’t do well in Kansas City with a new left tackle, Jamaal Charles and Dwayne Bowe, it’ll be on his shoulders.
2.) Jacksonville Jaguars – Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon A tackle is an option here as well, but I don’t think the Jaguars will reach for a quarterback. Worst-case scenario they start Chad Henne and give up on Blaine Gabbert. Jordan could have an immediate impact, chasing around that Andrew Luck guy twice a season.
