Morning links: And the draft goes on

Connor Halliday and Vince Mayle will find out their professional destinations today. But Xavier Cooper already knows where he's going.

Cleveland selected Cooper with the 96th pick in the draft, which was fitting because he wore No. 96 at Washington State. We have a story and blog post on Cooper's selection. Here is some reaction to Cooper's selection and some analysis from ESPN.
