Boehringer and Reynolds go in round six, Raiders take Cook


Moritz Boehringer and Keenan Reynolds were the stories of the final day of the 2016 NFL Draft as Connor Cook was finally selected in the fourth round.

German wide receiver Boehringer became the first player to go straight from Europe to the NFL via the draft as he was selected by the Minnesota Vikings.

Boehringer became interested in the NFL after watching a YouTube video of Minnesota's star running back Adrian Peterson, and will now be team-mates with the three-time rushing champion.

Two picks later Reynolds, who scored a collegiate-record 88 rushing touchdowns in his career with Navy, was selected by the Baltimore Ravens.

Reynolds played quarterback for Navy but will likely be a running back or receiver in Baltimore, although he will need permission from the Navy to play in the NFL and fulfil his military service obligation at the same time. 

Michigan State quarterback Cook, who had expected to go on day two at least, saw his wait finally end as he was picked by the Oakland Raiders and will likely back up Derek Carr.

Defensive tackle Andrew Billings - seen as a first-round prospect by many - was taken in the same round by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Dak Prescott may prove to be Tony Romo's eventual replacement as Dallas Cowboys quarterback after he went in the fourth.

Meanwhile, there could be a quarterback controversy in Buffalo, with the Bills taking Cardale Jones from Ohio State.

Bills starter Tyrod Taylor is a free agent at the end of the 2016 season.
