Myles Garrett was drafted first overall by the Browns to wreak havoc on opposing quarterbacks. The Bears not only exchanged first round picks with the 49ers, but they also sent San Francisco a 2017 third and fourth round pick along with a 2018 third round pick.
The Browns' pick of Peppers as their second pick in the first round raised some eyebrows, since he was thought of as a lower pick.
It has been a very long and roller coaster ride of a week for Cleveland Browns fans all around as the rumors would not go away that the Browns may pass on the surest top pick since Andrew Luck but Sashi Brown and company had other plans.

"When we're picking top five in a draft and there's a quarterback that we really like, that's the only chance that we're going to have to get a guy like that", Pace said. But it was what was going on around him that surprised Philadelphia's Howie Roseman.

T.J. Watt of Wisconsin, brother of three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt of Houston, was selected by Pittsburgh.
