Myles Garrett selected by Cleveland Browns in 2017 NFL Draft

He was considered a fringe first-round prospect and Melifonwu should be selected early on Friday when the second round begins, while fellow Londoner Jermaine Eluemunor could also possibly be a day-two pick.

Trubisky said he'd defer to the veteran and avoid complications in the quarterback room.

Once the shock of reality subsided a bit and the Browns finished up their first round, I started to come around on the philosophy.

Quote from Garrett [on potentially being selected to go to Clevelend]: "If there's the opportunity to turn things around, that's what great players do". My favorite player growing up was Walter Payton. "But I'm looking forward to working with Mike and the rest of my teammates in Chicago". "The city of Chicago is my home now".

The 6-foot-2, 222-pound Trubisky ranked fifth in the country with a 68.0 completion percentage, threw 30 touchdowns against just six picks, and averaged 288 passing yards per game. The #ClevelandBrowns choose #MylesGarrett as the first pick in the 2017 #NFL Draft! And basically, when you look at it, it equated to giving up a little bit more than a third-round pick in our trade yesterday for Mitch.

If you add Thomas along with DeForest Buckner and Arik Armstead and the 49ers all of sudden have a formable defensive line. Before the draft, he was projected as a top-10 selection.

The Browns did trade away their 33rd overall selection to the Packers but they will select 52nd overall. Garrett also is the first Texas A&M player ever to go to No. 1.

Corey Davis (Western Michigan) poses with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell as he is selected as the number 5 overall pick to the Tennessee Titans in the first round the 2017 NFL Draft at Philadelphia Museum of Art. It was jokingly said, but I was dropping verbal bombs and said, "I'm done!" before half laughing it off.

The Browns could still draft a passer with one of their seven remaining picks, but based on historical performance, it is probably best to wait until next year.

Browns fans have stuck with the team through hell or high water...and then more hell.

Instead of just not taking a quarterback, though, they actively avoided it. But for whatever reason, the Browns didn't think he was the right player. What is unusual is Houston trading up 13 spots to select Deshaun Watson. Garrett's older brother, Sean Williams, was a first-round pick. "But I had a bug in me after watching the Ohio State game". Whatever the case may be, it was obviously enough to scare 32 National Football League teams away. There was surely nation-wide interest in what a revamped Browns front office would do with the bounty of picks it had. Jimmy Smith played the position well, but he's missed time with injuries in two of the last three years.
