Rounds 2 and 3 of the 2014 NFL Draft continues today after some surprises in the first round Thursday night.

"I feel great. I am glad to be apart of the organization," Clowney said. "I'm ready to get to work, be in the NFL and play some football. I'm ready to live up to them and get to work."

The Rams and Chiefs also made their first round picks:
"The St. Louis Rams select Greg Robinson Tackle from Auburn."
"I'm speechless.  It's a blessing to be here," Robinson said. "Thanks to St. Louis for giving me this opportunity and I won't let you down. 
Reporter:  "Did you ever doubt yourself?"
"No, sir. I've always been confident. I'm confident in my game and it won't change." 
 "With the 13th in the 2014 NFL Draft the Rams select Aaron Donald, Pittsburgh."
 "With the 23rd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the Chiefs select Dee Ford defensive end Auburn."


NORMAN, Ill--The Missouri State softball team was hoping for a double header sweep Thursday in the opening round of the Valley tournament.

Then Shannon King shoots the gap in left center, Lynch Crumri and Marina Groenewegen both score it's 3-nothing Bradley.

It was 4-nothing when Missouri State rallies in the fifth, Stacia Boeckstiegel singles up the middle, that scores Bethany Sullinger and it's 4-1.

Two on for Rebecca McPherson and she hammers this to left, it stays fair and it's gone over the 190 foot mark, a three run homer, it's 4-4.

MSU led 5-4 in the bottom of the sixth, Bradley with the bases loaded and Alyson Clemente takes this deep to left, over the boards and gone a grand slam and Bradley ends Missouri State's season 8-5.
