Gareon Conley said on a conference call with reporters he "didn't know at all" the Raiders were interested in him before they drafted him and GM Reggie McKenzie called him with the news Oakland had selected him with the No. 24 overall pick. Connor let said he is flying to Oakland tomorrow and plans on meeting with police on Monday. " I'm very confident it will be resolved, he said. Conley has been accused of rape, though charges have not been filed.

Sean Payton said the Saints had CB Marshon Lattimore ranked as their No. 3 or 4 prospect. When he fell to No. 11, the reaction in the room was "outstanding." The Saints even considered trading up for him before their patience paid off.

Reggie McKenzie said the Raiders did "miles and miles of research" on Gareon Conley, who has been accused of rape. "We did our due diligence and our...reports on Mr. Conley and we feel very good about him joining the team and being a good teammate."

DB Conley, accused of rape, taken by Raiders

Gareon Conley, the ex-Ohio State cornerback accused of rape earlier this week, was picked 24th overall by the Raiders on Thursday night.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Raiders have drafted Ohio State CB Gareon Conley with the No. 24 overall selection of the 2017 NFL draft. Conley has been accused of sexual assault.

Colts first-round pick Malik Hooker spent his draft day at a children's hospital in Pittsburgh.

New Saints CB Marshon Lattimore said he's looking forward to facing WR Michael Thomas again in practice again after they were teammates at Ohio State. "Right now, I'll win," Lattimore said. "I was a little freshman back then, but I'm a grown man now. So we're gonna go at it." … The Saints have now drafted five Buckeyes since Sean Payton became coach in 2006, seven since Mickey Loomis became GM in 2003 and nine since 2000 -- all more than any other school.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said first-round pick Malik Hooker likely won't be available until training camp because of surgery on a torn labrum in his left hip and sports hernias back in January.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Colts coach Chuck Pagano on first-round pick Malik Hooker: "We never thought he'd be there at 15. We thought he was a top 10 pick... A rare, rare athlete."

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

The Colts pulled somewhat of a surprise when they selected Ohio State safety Malik Hooker at pick No. 15. The Colts have a need for pass rusher and they decided to bypass the likes of defensive end Charles Harris, linebacker Tak McKinley and Alabama teammates Jonathan Allen and inside linebacker Reuben Foster, bot projected top-10 picks. Hooker had 43 tackles and seven interceptions last season.

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

Safety Malik Hooker, the pick at No. 15, has the best deep-zone range and ball skills for a safety prospect since Earl Thomas. The Colts had just eight interceptions last season, tied for second-worst in the NFL.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Malik Hooker has incredible range and the ball skills to finish plays. Stuff you can't teach. He needs to improve his footwork and angles to the ball versus the run game, but he has the ability to close the middle of the field for the Colts secondary.

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

We're 13 picks in, and four of our top-10 players overall are still available -- DL Jonathan Allen, TE O.J. Howard, ILB Reuben Foster and S Malik Hooker. That's a direct result of three QBs getting pushed into the top 12. Eagles, Colts and Ravens have to be THRILLED right now.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

CB Marshon Lattimore fills a major need for the Saints. 4.36 speed, ball skills and he shows the ability to play multiple techniques on film. Aggressive in coverage with the closing speed to break on routes.

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

Like the Jets, New Orleans cashes in on good fortune. CB Marshon Lattimore (6-foot, 4.36 speed) was a projected top-five pick. I think he's the best pure man-to-man cover corner in this draft, and they get him at No. 11 overall.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

Saints take Ohio State CB Marshon Lattimore at No. 11 as this draft has played out like a dream for them, with QBs and WRs going high and allowing the universally-rated top cornerback to fall to them. Must be thrilled also that they never paid a premium to trade for CBs Malcolm Butler or Trumaine Johnson. Lattimore had significant hamstring issues early in his career at Ohio State, but they weren't an issue last year. … The Saints have been loving Ohio State players in the draft lately after scoring with Michael Thomas and Vonn Bell last year.

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

Two quarterbacks and three wide receivers go in the top 10 -- more than was initially expected. That leaves some elite players still on the board, including CB Marshon Lattimore and TE O.J. Howard

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Three picks until the Browns are on the clock at 12, and TE O.J. Howard, S Malik Hooker and DL Jonathan Allen are all still there to be taken. At least one will be there at 12.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Two other players to consider at 12, both of them highly regarded: Safety Malik Hooker of Ohio State and tight end O.J. Howard of Alabama. One of them could be good enough to force the Browns off Deshaun Watson.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Greetings from Florham Park, N.J., home of the Jets. They will be on the clock in about three hours. With the sixth pick, their choice could be between Ohio State S Malik Hooker and Alabama TE O.J. Howard. Each one would fill a huge need. Scouts tell me Howard is a safer pick because, unlike Hooker, he has no injury issues.
