The Cleveland Browns are just hours away from being on the clock with the first overall selection of the 2017 NFL Draft.
It’s finally here!
Tonight at 8 the 2017 NFL Draft will finally take place.
After months of speculation, rumor and general nonsense, the Cleveland Browns will open the draft by making the first selection of the evening, presumably for Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett.
What comes next is literally anyone’s guess.
Barring any trades, the Browns hold 11 picks in this year’s draft and in addition to the top overall selection will also be picking at No. 12.
There is still a lot of ground to cover between now and then, however, so stay with us at Dawg Pound Daily all day and through the night for the latest on the Browns, the NFL and the 2017 NFL Draft.
Cleveland Browns news:
NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock released his only mock draft of the 2017 season this evening and in it he has the Cleveland Browns selecting Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett and North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
The Cleveland Browns reportedly know who they will select with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Everyone else will just have to wait until around 8:10 p.m. on Thursday to find out just who it is.
The Cleveland Browns need to select two high-impact players in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, and Pro Football Focus’ latest mock draft brings it home.
"Browns All-Pro tackle Joe Thomas was a guest on In Depth With Graham Bensinger, and he spoke candidly about the ways in which football may have already affected his brain."
"The Browns haven’t been good at a lot of things in recent years, but no one can deny they’re experts in drama. So it’s fitting that on the eve of the NFL Draft, they still had the sports world wondering whether they would pick the best player or the most valuable player at No. 1 overall."
"What is now a national obsession and one of the biggest days on the sports calendar was once mocked as a trivial obsession for two devoted — and very different — NFL draft analysts of yore. You can’t tell the story of the draft’s incredible rise from afterthought to prominence without giving the original NFL draftniks their proper due: Mel Kiper Jr. and Joel Buchsbaum."
"If you’re an NFL team, do you really like the quarterbacks available in this weekend’s draft? Do you really, really like them, enough to spend a high pick on one and make him your franchise guy? Or do you like Teddy Bridgewater better?"
"In the year since Laremy Tunsil’s nightmare evening on the NFL’s biggest offseason stage, a few teams succumbing to panic and passing on the highest-graded blocker in the draft, agents’ in-the-moment empathy has turned to old-fashioned survivalist practicality. The Tunsil episode became, to every agent but Tunsil’s own, a free refresher in how to thoroughly vet potential clients and whatever might be in their pasts and on the social media feeds that largely have long memories."
"While pressure is on all 32 of them, which general managers are feeling the most heat with this draft? Start in Cleveland."
