Jacksonville Jaguars fan Hamish Shilliday took the spotlight to make two of the teams sixth round picks in the NFL Draft. Danny Jersey . Shilliday had Londons Tower Bridge as his back drop as he announced University of Montana defensive end Tyrone Holmes as the teams opening sixth round selection.The 29-year-old, from Birmingham, had been due to announce Jacksonvilles fifth round pick, but the franchise traded it on Friday to move up in the second round and select linebacker Myles Jack. It was absolutely brilliant to play my part in the Draft, he said. I will obviously be keeping a close eye on Holmes career and when he goes on to become a superstar Ill be able to say it was me who introduced him to the NFL - that would be incredible.I didnt really have any nerves to be honest. It was just really exciting to be involved and I had a fantastic time with the Jaguars team and cant thank them enough for the opportunity.Ive been a fan of the Jags for such a long time. I think the Draft picks by the team this year have been brilliant and I cant wait to see them come and play in London in October.Shilliday was joined by defensive tackle Michael Bennett to make the pick, or picks as it turned out, with Bennett having been selected from London in last years Draft when it was the first time a pick announcement had been made outside the United States.Bennett was on hand to join in with the naming of Arkansas quarterback Brandon Allen with the 26th pick in the sixth round.He said: It is a lot less stressful being on the other side this year around. Waiting for that phone to ring was one of the most nerve racking experiences of my life but the feeling when I was selected was the best.It is great to be here in London, where it all began for me, and its fantastic to be able to include our fans in the UK in occasions like this. They are just an awesome part of the Jaguars so I hope by including them in things like this they will keep doing what theyre doing.

Top-seeded Djokovic, who is making only his second appearance this year after reaching the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, was a 6-3, 6-3 winner over 54th-ranked Istomin of Uzbekistan. "It wasnt as easy as the scoreline indicates," said Djokovic, who has won in Dubai on four occasions. Bernardo Silva Portugal Jersey . -- Jake Peavy arrived at Bostons spring training complex on Monday with a large white bandage covering his left index finger, the result of a weekend accident.PHOENIX - As Facebooks latest step into sports, the social media giant is launching Trending Super Bowl — a real-time hub for content from Sundays game between the Patriots and Seahawks.The hub will allow followers to see how the game is going on a scoreboard module, while also viewing Super Bowl-related posts, photos and video posted by professional media, celebrities and friends. The module will also include a running play-by-play from the game, and videos of some of the commercials from the broadcast.Facebook is trying to improve the experience around big sporting events for users. During last years Super Bowl, more than 50 million Facebook users had more than 185 million interactions (posts, comments and likes) about the big game.We have been the second-screen, real-time audience, says Dan Reed, head of global sports partnerships at Facebook. This Trending Super Bowl is part of a broader effort to better surface the great conversations happening in real time around live sporting events.And not only during the game — Trending Super Bowl will be live beginning Saturday morning.We know the Super Bowl is an all-day extravaganza and this will certainly be available pregame and during the game and postgame and halftime, of course, Reed adds. We also recognize it is about the pageantry around the game and the halftime show and the TV commercials.Facebook wants the hub to be one-stop shopping for all sorts of content for the game. Facebook only will present material posted by official owners, such as what thee NFL is posting on its Facebook page, or interesting and enlightening items posted on individual Facebook pages by anyone. Eduardo Jersey. acebook isnt new to the biggest sports happenings. Last year, it saw 350 million people worldwide engaged in conversation around the World Cup.Surveys have shown that two-thirds of TV viewers use social media during a broadcast. Of those people who are on social media while watching, 85 per cent are using Facebook, the company says.Also of benefit to Facebook, Reed says, are the quarterbacks in the game. Tom Brady has become the most-liked NFL player with more than 3 million, recently passing Troy Polamalu. Russell Wilson is a frequent user, including a locker room shot of him with the NFC championship trophy after Seattles overtime victory against Green Bay.Tom is a real model for how the paradigm is changing for how athletes can interact with the fans, Reed says. Theres always interest in seeing what Tom Brady posts after a game, they are so authentic and entertaining.Having both of those players active on Facebook is certainly great for us; they cant post during the game, unfortunately, Reed adds with a laugh.So where can this lead?We really want to incorporate the amazing experience you get when you attend the game into the lean-back experience of watching at home, Reed says. We feel we are best positioned to do that; we represent the largest collection of sports fans anywhere on the planet.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
