Starting with Bears, surprises galore on Day 1 of NFL draft

The NFL draft resumes tonight.

Whether the Browns use their stockpile of picks to pull off a surprising trade for a veteran quarterback like New England Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo, Cincinnati Bengals backup AJ McCarron or Washington Pro Bowler Kirk Cousins remains to be seen. Glennon, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, lost his starting job midway through the 2013 season to Josh McCown, then permanently was relegated to backup duty when Jamies Winston was picked first overall in 2014. Some believed that he could have been a first round pick, and wound up tallying 118 tackles, four interceptions and three passes broken up last season for the Huskies. So when you have an opportunity to get a quarterback of this caliber, you can’t pass on it.

It did not take long for the draft order to take a new shape, as the Chicago Bears traded up one spot with the San Francisco 49ers to select Mitchell Trubisky. The Adams pick for the Jets is certainly a good one, and they will now be trying to build upon a strong start to the draft.

“Right now, Patrick isn’t absolutely ready to play”.

Fans will wonder why Kansas City moved up if Mahomes isn’t a star. This is a team that is a quarterback short of being a playoff contender.

The Browns have seven picks in rounds 2-7 this year, including one in the second round (No. 52) and another in the third (No. 65). Houston selected Deshaun Watson, qb, Clemson.

I think it’s safe to say that Browns fans are the most loyal in the league! Cleveland let it to come to them, and the team took the best player available in Myles Garrett.

Columnist Terry Pluto of Cleveland.com hailed the team’s decision, calling it ” smart and safe ” by not reaching for a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick.

Peppers made 86 solo tackles and assisted on 33 other stops, including 18.5 for lost yardage with three sacks in his three seasons at MI. They have six picks on the day.

Two other tight ends – Evan Engram of Ole Miss 23rd to the Giants and Miami (Fla.) product David Njoku 29th to the Browns – were drafted Thursday. It only cost them the 33rd pick in the second round and the 108th pick in the fourth round.

“He’s my first target”, Garrett said. Texas AM’s Myles Garrett, right, is congratulated by his brother and former National Basketball Association player Sean Williams after the Cleveland Browns selected Garrett with the No. 1 pick in the NFL football draft, at T.

A local writer here in Jacksonville was more optimistic about the direction the Cleveland Browns traveled in last night’s first round of the NFL Draft. The defensive lineman from UCLA brought a picture of his late grandmother with him to the draft, and became very emotional when speaking about her. “But he’s not the best player in this draft”. The Jaguars got the best running back in this draft and should help take the pressure off the passing game. Three trades to take three signal callers. That is good for the teams drafting after the run on offensive players ended.

Once again, the Southeastern Conference dominated the talent pool with 12 players, 4 from Alabama, becomming first rounders. Nevertheless, the massive guard will be one the first players taken on Day 2. Dealing away three draft picks to move up and take Trubisky was a surprise to many, though – including Trubisky.

Despite rape allegations that emerged days before the draft, Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley was drafted by the Oakland Raiders with the No. 24 pick.
