Offensive draft early, QBs prized after Garrett is No. 1

The Browns bolstered their defense in a big way to kick off the 2017 NFL Draft, selecting Texas A&M's Myles Garrett with the No. 1 pick.

Garrett became the sixth Texas A&M player to be selected in the top 10 since 2011, joining T JAKE MATTHEWS (sixth overall, 2014), WR MIKE EVANS (seventh overall, 2014), T LUKE JOECKEL (second overall, 2013), QB RYAN TANNEHILL (eighth overall, 2012) and LB VON MILLER (second overall, 2011).

The draft is a time full of excitement for fans and players alike, so it makes sense to keep the fun going and let the players take in an Indians game for one night. So I like being part of things that you help build from the ground up.

Once the first pick was decided quarterbacks grabbed the limelight as the wheeling and dealing started.
