Cyprien was a standout in the Sun Belt Conference and really solidified his stock with an excellent performance in the Senior Bowl. He was the first player taken from that conference in this draft, from which Commissioner Roger Goodell said ``We expect a lot more excitement'' after a first round that featured 18 linemen chosen.
Yet to be chosen were the likes of Notre Dame All-America linebacker Manti Te'o and quarterbacks Geno Smith of West Virginia and Matt Barkley of Southern California.
