"C'mon, Philly, C'mon", Goodell said Thursday night amid the boos, not even wincing at the reception. Garrett is a defensive end from Texas A&M.
Garrett is the first Aggie selected No. 1 overall.
Garrett was not on hand, but promised Cleveland fans "great things are coming".
The Browns ranked No. 30 in sacks previous year (26 total) and this will go a long way upgrading their pass rush. It ranked 31st defensively and had only 26 sacks.
The Browns also have the No. 12 pick in the first round and the No. 33 and No. 52 overall picks.
Trubisky joins T.J. YATES (2011, fifth round) and RONALD CURRY (2002, seventh round) as the only North Carolina quarterbacks to be selected in the NFL Draft. Either way, Trubisky said he's comfortable with whatever the Bears decide to do with him. "There was no call".
On being paired with Myles Garrett in the Browns' defense: "I think it's going to be a sight to see".
Apparently Phil Emery and Jerry Angelo were not the only Chicago Bears general managers willing to stake their futures on a quarterback gamble.
The Bears, literally, don't know what they got in Mitch Trubisky. "We feel we have the ideal environment for his development". San Francisco 49ers (via trade with Bears): Solomon Thomas, Defensive End (Stanford) 4.
The Browns have five picks on the final day of the draft.
"He's special", Coughlin said.
Most experts considered Garrett, a three-year starter at Texas A&M, to be the best player in this year's draft. But the Browns do need a quarterback, and Trubisky may be the best of a less-than-stellar bunch this year.
Peppers was a jack of all trades for the Wolverines, playing at linebacker, safety, running back, kick returner and punt returner. Cook was an All-American last season. Cam Newton sure must be smiling. There is so much on the line, three days that make or break an National Football League franchise. Cincinnati Bengals: John Ross, Wide Receiver (Washington) 10. The Chiefs surged up for. a quarterback. He left the combine early after getting into argument with a hospital worker. The Cleveland Browns certainly explored many paths in an eventful first round. Alabama now has a current streak of nine consecutive drafts with at least one first-round pick. Perhaps the Browns or the cruel football demons that permanently haunt them will find a way to ruin him, but if that happens, history should not be revised into considering his selection a bad one.
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. Now you know. You know what the path is and all the hard work is just getting started.
Surprisingly, no one from Alabama was chosen until cornerback Marlon Humphrey went 16th to Baltimore. Instead, the Titans grabbed Davis over Williams, who went two picks later to the Chargers.
