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

May 03, 2017, 00:05

The 21-year-old defensive end was seen as the top star in the Draft, and was picked by the Cleveland Browns. Neither became truly great, which helped the Texans avoid "I told you so" criticism. We understood that. This is a great opportunity to really add a player and add another player next year that we hope will be again another impact player for us. We will continue to investigate on our end, and provided that we can get comfortable, keep him on the roster.

The New England Patriots had no picks in either the first or second round.

"We feel very comfortable that this guy brings the characteristics that we want in our kicker", Jackson said.

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. There are still some incredible players left available, and the Packers will have the first pick in round two, after trading their first round pick to the Browns last night. "We're going to do everything we can to find one". He played in nine games, making 60 tackles, including two sacks.

Unlike numerous top picks who were in Philadelphia walking the red carpet and hugging Commissioner Roger Goodell on a stage in front of 70,000 fans, Garrett was with family and friends in Texas when he received a phone call from the Browns.

"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 came from 2-1 down and still won - that's insane ", beamed Tuchel. "This is the biggest moment of my career with Dortmund ". That paved the way for the French teenager to hit the victor with a curling left-foot shot to break Bayern's hearts.

"To put on that kind of weight and still maintain my athleticism, it was a good grind for two years", Shaheen said.

Garrett is the first Aggie selected No. 1 overall. Roethlisberger thought he was going to be drafted by the Browns back in 2004.

The ineptitude that the Browns display year in and year out drafting players that never seem to pan out makes them by far the hardest team to root for in the NFL. He will be a welcome addition to a Browns unit that struggled previous year and was 30th in the league in scoring defense (28.3 points allowed per game) and 31st in the league in average rushing yards allowed (142.7).

One thing almost all the analysts agreed on is that this draft featured a weak quarterback class. He blamed the failed test on overhydrating for a cramping problem and said he didn't have to persuade the Browns he was clean.

Instead of letting the criticism get to his head, Garrett claims the talk will only further push him toward his ultimate National Football League goals. "My character speaks for itself". He might need them to reach his goals; he wants to break the rookie record of 14.5 sacks set by Jevon Kearse in 1999 when he was with the Titans. "I am putting that behind me now".
