The consensus among Browns fans here in Philadelphia is draft Myles Garrett, the defensive end out of Texas A&M and the best available player in the draft. They have scouted Mitchell Trubisky, and with the sixth overall pick, could entice the Bears a bit. But Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel raises the one dynamic that could upset the (road) apple cart. In all, Cleveland own five of the 65 picks in the 2017 NFL Draft, including six more picks on Day 3. With the No. 14 overall draft pick, Mayock believes the Eagles will take Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams.
Fifth round: (3) No. 145, No. 175 (via Barkevious Mingo trade with Patriots), No. 181 (compensatory pick). Will the Jets be in on the quarterback derby? One of the things we want to take from this experience is to see what went well, see what went wrong and see what we can improve on.
There was some thought they might wait a round or two to take a QB.
The NFL draft 2017 is set to begin tonight, which means fans will finally find out who the first pick is that goes to the Cleveland Browns.
There's a very simple answer to the question of the first pick this year, and it's to take Myles Garrett. Cleveland not only has the top pick, but No.12 overall in the first round and two second-round picks.More news: Ontario sets tax on foreign buyers to cool Toronto housing market
Each spring, National Football League fans gather together in one place to boo Roger Goodell and, occasionally, the first-round picks of their favorite teams in a rich tradition known as the National Football League draft. What's more, it may allow them to broker a trade to get more draft capital in the first and second round with the 12th pick if a team feels they need to move up.
Defense is going to be the area of concentration in this draft, in the first round and through much of the proceedings in Philadelphia.
In most years, there is a no-brainer pick at the top of the draft and often that player is a sure-fire franchise quarterback.
Albert is another believer in the Garrett/Trubisky double play for the Browns: "The Trubisky buzz is real".
The first round of the 2017 NFL Draft is unique in it's lack of quality position players and strong offense.
Just saying those words, NFL Draft, gives me goosebumps.
