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


Unless the Bears pull another shocker and trade Trubisky before they sign him to a contract, they have found their quarterback for the next 10 years.

The Browns had another pick at number 12, but chose to trade out of the pick, handing it to the Houston Texans.

Only the first 32 picks of the seven-round draft were made on Thursday and London-born safety Melifonwu, who moved to America aged three and has relatives from the capital there with him watching this event, was not among those picked. Yet three went in the first dozen Thursday night, with two whopping trades putting the Bears and Chiefs in position to grab QBs.

The draft see the NFL's 32 teams choose the best players from American college football teams across seven rounds. "I'll just work hard and take care of what I can".

The Browns have four picks remaining: No. 181 in the fifth round, Nos.


Running back Leonard Fournette went fourth to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Tennessee Titans rounded out the top five by taking receiver Corey Davis.

The Browns later took MI defensive back Jabrill Peppers with Houston's original pick at No. 25 and traded up to draft David Njoku, a tight end from Miami, at No. 29. Cook was an All-American last season. "Starting next year, we can put the pieces together, not only the players but with a mindset that we can actually do this". Pace had been involved while working with the New Orleans personnel department when former basketball player Jimmy Graham was drafted, and Graham had been a basketball player. "If he has the skill set and he gels with the team, he can do it", said Bears fan Randy Hurt.

"Right now, Patrick isn't absolutely ready to play". We need to do something about balance. "Although, we may have even made more deals past year". I'm going to out-compete and out-challenge. He is an absolute stud pass rusher on the edge and with no clear-cut star quarterback on the board, this was an easy decision for the Cleveland Browns. With one playoff appearance since re-entering the league back in 1999, the Browns remain a laughingstock. 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.

T.J. Watt of Wisconsin, brother of three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt of Houston, was selected by Pittsburgh.
