With the first pick in the 2018 Draft the Cleveland Browns draft Baker Mayfield out of Oklahoma.
 Baker Mayfield is the 6th QB the Browns have selected in the first round during the Common Draft Era. None of the previous 5 had a winning record with

That included a strong offensive lineman in Austin Corbett from Nevada - the same school as current left guard Joel Bitonio - and a strong defensive end that provides depth in Chad Thomas from Miami.

The NFL's seven-round draft concludes today, with the first selection of the fourth round scheduled to be made at 11 a.m. The Browns are trying to build a better semblance of an offense with its picks this year though. "If Baker can understand the National Football League and all the rigors and the grinding that you have to go through, I am not going to ever stop a player from being the best he can be". He was team captain as a sophomore.

One general manager from an AFC team told WalterFootball.com that Jackson is the most dynamic player in the 2018 NFL Draft. I love this pick for the Giants as they have someone to help open up holes for their first-round pick, Saquon Barkley.

Dallas already had one tight end retire this month. In addition, they liked Ward's incredible athleticism (he was a combine star) and the fact he allowed just 35 receptions on 100 targeted passes with two interceptions and 19 passes defensed during his OSU career.

Jarwin, undrafted a year ago, spent most of the season on the practice squad.

In 2014, Thomas was a member of the Ragin' Cajuns' scout team for the latter part of the season, and then, in 2015, was academically ineligible for the first nine games of the year and did not play in the final three contests. Denver is among five finalist cities under consideration to host the draft in 2019 or 2020. They've made three second-round picks since 2003: Anthony Fasano (2006), Martellus Bennett (2008) and Gavin Escobar (2013).

Forget about whether Lamar Jackson should be a quarterback or wide receiver - whatever happens, this guy is going to succeed in the NFL.

The draft continues on Friday night with the second and third rounds. There was NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell being the target of boos as he stood next to Cowboys legends Troy Aikman, Roger Staubach and Jason Witten, a unusual prelude to the introduction of the main event of the evening, namely the Browns. There was once a time when drafts could percolate for a few years before judgment day.

Once again it will do so, and 10 Pro Football Hall of Famers will be on hand to announce their team's pick.

The Bears and Packers play each other week 1 in Green Bay.

Rudolph, who will presumably get a shot to succeed 36-year-old Ben Roethlisberger someday, followed his favorite target at Oklahoma State to Pittsburgh, after the Steelers took Cowboys wideout James Washington at No. 60 near the end of Round 2.
