NFL teams bought in bulk early in Thursday night’s draft.

Manti Te’o must wait one more day to find out his future after a tumultuous four months.
The Notre Dame linebacker was not taken in the first round of the NFL draft Thursday. And so fans — and even people who don’t normally care about football — will buzz for another 24 hours about the fake girlfriend hoax and its repercussions on his football career.
Like so many things in life, successful runs at pro sports championships come in cycles — which, unfortunately for us fans means that spurts of bad teams and dreadful performances to get there come in cycles as well.
The reality is that someone’s got to finish last. Someone’s got to lose each game. Somebody has to eventually be graced with (or cursed with, depending on your outlook) the No. 1 pick in the draft.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — To say Derrick Williams wasn’t highly recruited out of high school might be an understatement.

One small problem: He wasn’t.
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Kyrie Irving traveled just a few miles down the road to become the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft.
