For weeks, many had been saying Myles Garrett would be the first player taken in the 2017 NFL Draft. Watt went number 30 to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

While recruiting in college is not an exact science, guys such as Henderson and Shaheen prove the NFL Draft is much more exact because there are a lot more eyes and research done. OJ Howard at 19 to Tampa Bay and Reuben Foster to San Francisco at No. 31.

The third and final day of the 2017 NFL Draft is over.

Next up was basketball, with 19 of the 32 draftees having played hoops (59%).

The Browns had their eyes on North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky, a local kid who grew up a Cleveland fan, but he was surprisingly selected at No. 2 by the Chicago Bears.

"It was insane", Trubisky said. I haven't given out mine yet, but I'd probably give them a B or B+.

The ineptitude that the Browns display year in and year out drafting players that never seem to pan out makes them by far the hardest team to root for in the NFL.

What KC no longer has is its first-round choice next year, which went in the deal that also saw the Bills get a third-rounder on Friday.

About 200 residents and protesters rallied against THAAD in front of a local community center, some hurling plastic water bottles. North Korea often marks significant dates by displaying its military capability and has conducted five nuclear tests.

The All-American had 65 passes for 926 yards and eight touchdowns last season.

Following a dismal 1-15 season, the Browns are counting on Garrett and this draft - Sashi Brown, the club's vice president of football operations called it "momentous" last week - to kick-start their turnaround and possibly end years of football folly for a once-proud franchise.

McKinley will be paired with 2016 sacks leader Vic Beasley, the team's first-round pick in 2015. "We do recognize that we need a quarterback, but we're not going to chase it".

Cleveland made three first-round selections Thursday night and still has two first-rounders and two second-rounders in 2018 to dangle in other moves.

"I want to be the best", Garrett said.

But in particular, Brown said Cleveland's personnel department - including director of college scouting Bobby Vega and vice president of player personnel Ken Kovash - was instrumental in helping the Browns move around the board via Day 3 trades with Denver and NY. He is going to be a monster at defensive end for Cleveland and will immediate take their defense to the next level. Not only the players, but with a mindset that we can actually do this.

He has decried allegations that he raped a woman as "completely false" and no charges have been filed as police investigate claims made by a 23-year-old woman. He called the accusations "completely false" and no charges have been filed.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie sounded confident the situation will be resolved. He joined defensive lineman Solomon Thomas, who was taken No. 3 overall by the 49ers.

The SEC had a stretch of three consecutive picks when Florida linebacker Jarrad Davis went 21st to Detroit, Missouri defensive end Charles Harris went 22nd to Miami and Ole Miss tight end Evan Engram going 23rd to the New York Giants.

It was only the third time in the common-draft era Kansas City selected a quarterback in the first round, and the first since Todd Blackledge failed to live up to expectations from the 1983 draft.

"Right now, Patrick isn't absolutely ready to play". "But he's coming into a great room, he has an opportunity to learn from Alex (Smith), which will be a great for him".
