Browns take DE Garrett with No. 1 pick of draft

It's the premium on quarterbacks, silly. This might be the one "competition" to watch as Cook will get drafted in the second round and have a better career than the kid from Stanford.

"It was just pretty much silence", Trubisky said.

Right or wrong, quarterbacks tend to dominate the pre-draft conversation every year, whether they deserve the attention or not.

As for whether Garrett wants to meet Hall of Fame pass-rusher Warren Sapp, who called Garrett a "lazy" player not worth the first overall pick, Garrett shrugged. I'm just going to take it day-by-day and do whatever is asked of me to do to the best of my ability.

Cleveland was in position to draft Deshaun Watson if they wanted to with their second pick at 12, but they elected to trade back all the way to 25, when the Texans traded up to take the Clemson national champion. The Patriots are reportedly reluctant to trade Garoppolo, but the deadline of the draft could finally spur some action. That's when Cleveland released Bernie Kosar, a nearby Youngstown, Ohio, native who took the Browns to three AFC championship games.

The Cleveland Browns hold the first pick yet again after finishing just 1-15 last season. But right now Pace is safe from any accusations of timidity at the top of his drafts. That might be true, but there's still talent that teams might not be content to wait on.

Bill O'Reilly accuser appears on 'The View'
It appears O'Reilly and Aile's contracts gave them carte blanche to treat Fox News like their own private men's club. He should have been fired then. "My contract wasn't renewed, that's um, that's the line".

I am not saying the Browns shouldn't have selected Myles Garrett. Before Thursday, there were only three defensive players selected No. 1 overall in the past 22 drafts (Jadeveon Clowney, Mario Williams and Courtney Brown). Now he finds himself part of a team that finished one victory short of the Super Bowl last season. They had multiple chances to draft whichever quarterback was on the board, but chose to pass and it looks like they'll be rolling into Training Camp with Cody Kessler as their starting quarterback. They don't have to all be home runs for the Browns first round to be considered a success, but there could sure use two singles and a double. When I went to MI, we had a losing record, too. Garrett revealed coach Hue Jackson got on the phone call and told him he was his guy all along. Some teams with more obvious needs (e.g. the New York Jets) may sit out, providing the opportunity for other clubs.

"I'm always going to compete and do my thing and push the guy in front of me and my team-mates as well".

In 34 games over his three years with the Aggies, Garrett registered 141 total tackles, including 81 solo stops and 60 assists, with 31.0 quarterback sacks, seven forced fumbles, one recovery, five passes defended and one interception.

The first big surprise of the night did not take long as the Bears handed the Niners their third-round pick (67th overall) and fourth-round choice and Chicago's third-rounder next year to guarantee they could add Trubisky to their roster.

But Cleveland also has needed a quarterback. There were some reaches, including the Bears trading up one spot to get QB Mitch Trubisky, when in all reality they could have gotten him the pick later.
