NEW YORK — The drama in the final day was short-lived as Matt Barkley was the first player off the board in the fourth-round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Oh, in case you missed it, he went to the Philadelphia Eagles. I know, right?

Anyway here is some of the Unexpected (and expected) of the conclusion of the 2013 NFL Draft.

And yes, they still boo’d the Dallas Cowboys for most of the day.

I wondered if Chargers GM Tom Telesco had to do some convincing to Manti Te’o to let him know the selection was legit. Teo told Sports Illustrated he was a little dubious when the California number came up.

Te’o met with the San Diego media on Saturday.

The Jaguars finally get their quarterback!

It’s Denard Robinson. Who is listed as a running back.

Still better than Blaine Gabbert, though.

Oh, and check out this guy at the beginning of this video.

There were some lulls during the draft because they were putting together the movie “Draft Day” which will star Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner. Our Crystina Poncher took a look behind the scenes.

Welcome to Cleveland

Barkevious Mingo arrived in Cleveland with his new team, the Browns. But please, save your “Bark” puns about him going to the Dawg Pound.

Time to shine

Fan selections dominated the early part of Saturday. And if I don’t mind saying so, some team competing in #FanFreeAgency really missed an opportunity because if I had been allowed to read one, that team would have shot up in the rankings.

But here we follow along with a couple of lucky fans.
