NFL's wild opening round could yield more surprises on Day 2

Despite rumors the Cleveland Browns might draft North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky with the top choice, they followed the script by selecting Garrett on Thursday night.

Trubisky is the first quarterback the Bears have taken in the first round since Rex Grossman in 2003. Cleveland acquired the 25th pick earlier in the evening from the Houston Texans. The Rams' first pick this year will come in today's second round at No. 37.

Washington's John Ross was taken ninth in the NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. 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.

To be fair to other markets, the Browns did boast the No. 1 overall pick.

Jacksonville Jaguars have chosen Leonard Fournette as running back.

Cleveland Browns first-round draft picks Myles Garrett (left), Jabrill Peppers (middle) and David Njoku (right) throw out ceremonial first pitches before Friday's Indians game at Progressive Field.

Last season, Shaheen set a Division II record with 16 touchdown catches. The former North Carolina quarterback was rated as the top player at his position in this draft, and will now call Chicago home. "Starting next year, we can put the pieces together, not only the players but with a mindset that we can actually do this".

"If there isn't a change, the fans have to rebel and bring someone in that can run a football team", Cockroft said.

"But he's coming into a great room, he has an opportunity to learn from Alex, which will be a great for him. We have to have some patience with him, but he has tremendous upside".

The Browns pass rush all of a sudden looks a lot more promising than it did last season.

On his versatility: "Whatever coach [Hue] Jackson's plan is, I'm going to attack 110 percent". We have a long way to go to get our roster where it needs to be. But when you remove your finger from the quarterback slot on that depth chart and you see second-round project DeShone Kizer alongside Cody Kessler, Kevin Hogan and Brock Osweiler, you're reminded not to get carried away with predictions regarding the 2017 Cleveland Browns. But that doesn't stop the the Browns faithful from tuning into the draft every year with renewed hope.

That's the fewest players with 10-plus sacks in a season for one franchise during that span.
