NASHVILLE (AP) – The NFL draft’s green room still had five prospects still on hand when the first round ended.

A total of 22 prospects came to Nashville for the draft once Kyler Murray got to town, and they went through a variety of events and walked the red carpet before the first round Thursday night.

By the end of the first round, offensive tackle Cody Ford, quarterback Drew Lock, wide receiver D.K. Metcalf, offensive tackle Jawaan Taylor and LSU cornerback Greedy Williams have yet to hear their names called or have the phone ring. That means their wait will continue at least until the draft resumes with the second round Friday night.
