"I'm pretty stoked about how the Bears are approaching this draft", said Silbaugh.
Haden praised Garrett earlier this month, saying: "Watching him on tape I just feel like he'll be an immediate impact player and I just feel like he'll be a guy that we could have rushing the passer for years to come".
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).
Most experts considered Garrett, a three-year starter at Texas A&M, to be the best player in this year's draft. The Cleveland Browns certainly explored many paths in an eventful first round.
In Cleveland, he'll be tasked with aiding a defense that ranked tied for 30th with just 26 sacks last season.
"You can feel his basketball background, his ability to go up and high-point balls in a crowd", Pace said. "I can actually know where I am going, know who I am going up against and know the schedule". The L.A. Rams did not have a first-round pick, having traded it a year ago to Tennessee for the top pick, which L.A. used to select quarterback Jared Goff.
This is the third straight year the Niners have taken a defensive lineman with their first pick. San Francisco took defensive end Solomon Thomas at three before safety Jamal Adams went to the Jets at six. Instead, they traded the pick to Houston for the No. 25 pick and used it to grab Michigan's all-purpose defensive dynamo Jabrill Peppers, who fills hole at safety and on returns.
The Cleveland Browns have been rumored the last few days to like Mitch Trubisky with the first overall pick, but it didn't come to fruition.
They also swapped a second-round selection with Green Bay to take tight-end David Njoku late in the first round.
"That's going to be tremendous for Taco", Brown said.
The Browns hired Gregg Williams to be their defensive coordinator this offseason.
