In total, this is a good year for teams seeking help on the edge, and it starts at the top, where Cleveland is nearly certain to select Texas A&M's Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick.
The 2017 NFL Draft is one week away and trade rumors are flying around the league, especially surrounding the Cleveland Browns who own the #1 pick, and the San Francisco 49ers who own the #2 pick in the draft.
"No", Cleveland's executive vice president of football operations said Wednesday in a predraft news conference.
Garrett himself has been asked where he wants to be picked, and he said he hopes the Browns take him because he wants to go first overall.
"We learned a lot about what makes him tick, what motivates him, how he spends his down time, how he spends his time with his teammates", Brown said. The Patriots banking on teams being desperate enough to count on the little he showed last season, plus the hype over his development prospects, hasn't really paid off, but things happen on draft night that move players like Garoppolo, who doesn't want to be Brady's backup forever. Perhaps it's true. But it could also be an attempt to drum up trade interest given Cleveland has the first and 12th overall selection in Round 1. However, Kiper is saying that Cleveland could consider giving up some of the draft picks they've built up over the years in order to get another high pick. But are we planning on it or is that the plan? "This is an important draft for us. We think we are positioned to be able to do that without impacting our draft much".
The Browns chose former Baylor University wide receiver Corey Coleman after the series of trades, while the Eagles drafted former North Dakota State University quarterback Carson Wentz.
Suffice to say they're drafting Garrett.
The city deserves a quality franchise, and they can no longer waste time bouncing from quarterback to quarterback. We just donât think that is a good way to do business over time.
"But that does not mean that if there was a player there we might not go take a shot". With that in mind, here are the three players the Bears are the most likely to take with the No. 3 overall pick.
If the Browns were to pass on Trubisky at No. 1 and someone else took him, they would have other options at No. 12, such as Deshaun Watson or Patrick Mahomes. "We look forward to him trying to establish himself here and have a chance to compete to be the starting quarterback". He is an enjoyable young man, very bright. Jumping ahead of teams such as the Buffalo Bills and New Orlean Saints who have been also linked to quarterbacks might or might not be a concern. However, overlooked Tre'Davious White out of LSU, though slender in frame, could be a good corner as well as an addition to special teams.
Trubisky was efficient running Fedora's up-tempo offense and displayed the ability to stretch the field vertically and great arm strength to the perimeter.
