Terry Pluto: Browns First Round Draft Picks Gets a "B+"

A general view of the 2017 NFL Draft at Philadelphia Museum of Art on Thu

The Bears selected quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in what was the biggest shock of the night.

"I can actually know where I'm going and know who I'm going up against, know the schedule", Garrett said of his feeling of relief at being selected.

"We don't go into the day thinking, 'Hey, let's make three trades today.' That is not the mindset at all", DePodesta said.

"As far as a stage at the college level gets, I don't know if there's one bigger", he said.

On what it's like to be a MI player drafted in OH: "I'm not really anxious about the Buckeyes. I'm just prepared for that".

The 49ers were not going to pick Trubisky, so it seems Lynch and the rest of the war room convinced the Bears that someone else was trading up to take Trubisky.

The last time Cleveland used a first round pick on a Miami Hurricanes tight end was in 2004. "I've worked hard for it". He is very coachable and is eager to learn.

He did not play 70 percent of defensive snaps in any season with the Aggies, and critics do exist based on long stretches without game-changing plays.

The NFL draft will begin in about an hour in Philadelphia.

Garrett had 33 tackles and 8 ½ sacks in 2016, in spite of being hobbled by an ankle injury for most of the season. Sims, like Garrett, was a defensive lineman. Then Christian McCaffrey, son of former National Football League wideout Ed McCaffrey, wound up with Carolina.

The last time the Browns drafted an A&M player in the first round, the first pitch didn't end up happening. Before the draft, he was projected as a top-10 selection.

Turris' OT goal gives Senators 3-2 series lead over Rangers
Holden caught a pass from Kevin Hayes to score his first playoff goal of the season, and the fourth of his career. The final 30 seconds of play devolved into a series of fights beginning with a bout involving Glass and Turris.

No. 6 overall pick goes to Jamal Adams for the New York Jets as safety.

"Air Njoku" was the third player that Cleveland selected Thursday.

"He was playing on basically one leg", Sumlin told NFL Radio.

Harris didn't visit or work out with the Dolphins, and Grier said it was because the team didn't want to tip its hand.

The analysis on NFL.com gushed about Garrett, calling him an "uber athlete", while mentioning that he had a "chiseled physique". His 41-inch vertical jump.

"This is obviously a good group", Brown said.

Considering the wild nature of the opening round, Friday's second and third rounds could feature more of the same.

The second thing binding them together is they are not quarterbacks.

The Houston Texans also were looking at Mahomes.

The Browns had other plans, though, and traded down with Houston for the Texans' 25th pick and their first-round pick in 2018, and once again that shocked looked appeared on the faces of fans all around me.
