1. Cleveland Browns


Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M


Despite rumors they could take Mitchell Trubisky, the Browns stuck with the consensus No. 1 pick and get a vicious pass rusher.


2. Chicago Bears via San Francisco 49ers


Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina


Watch your back, Mike Glennon.

Browns select Myles Garrett with No. 1 pick in 2017 NFL Draft


A shocker right out of the gate: the Bears traded up with the 49ers for the former Tar Heel quarterback.

3. San Francisco 49ers via Chicago Bears


Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford


John Lynch collected a slew of picks just for moving down one spot…and gets an edge rusher to help the 49ers’ weak defense.


4. Jacksonville Jaguars


Leonard Fournette

Jets select Jamal Adams with sixth pick in 2017 NFL Draft


RB, LSU


Tom Coughlin still doesn’t have a quarterback, so maybe he plans to have the Jags run the single-wing with their shiny new power back.


5. Tennessee Titans via Los Angeles Chargers


Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan


Remember the wide receivers Marcus Mariota was throwing to last year? Now you know why they took Davis.

Giants select Evan Engram with 23rd pick in 2017 NFL Draft


6. New York Jets


Jamal Adams, S, LSU


Todd Bowles gets the safety of his dreams. Will his secondary actually be any good now?


7. Los Angeles Chargers


Mike Williams, WR, Clemson


Anthony Lynn apparently has inherited a trait of Rex Ryan’s: take players from Clemson. Philip Rivers gets a new aerial threat.


8. Carolina Panthers


Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford


The rumor all along turned out to be true. Receiver. Running back. Whatever. He’s a weapon.


9. Cincinnati Bengals


John Ross, WR, Washington


Forget 9, the only number that matters regarding John Ross is 4.22.

The clock is officially ticking on Alex Smith's tenure in Kansas City now that Patrick Mahomes II is on the roster.

10. Kansas City Chiefs viaBuffalo Bills


Patrick Mahomes II, QB, Texas Tech


The clock is officially ticking on Alex Smith’s tenure in Kansas City. Monster trade up for a high-upside, high-risk QB.


11. New Orleans Saints


Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State


Perhaps no one needed a cornerback like the New Orleans Saints. And the best one slid right to them.


12. Houston Texans via Cleveland Browns


Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson


Good news for him: being better than Brock Osweiler is a low bar to clear.


13. Arizona Cardinals


Haason Reddick, LB, Temple


From Temple walk-on to first-round pick. Not too shabby.


14. Philadelphia Eagles via Minnesota Vikings


Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee


Crowd in Philly didn’t seem to like it. But they probably would have booed anything.


15. Indianapolis Colts


Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State


Chris Ballard doing what Ryan Grigson failed to do: investing in the Colts’ defense.


16. Baltimore Ravens


Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama


Ravens added to an already solid defense with one of the top cornerbacks in a cornerback-rich draft.


17. Washington


Jonathan Allen, DL, Alabama


The GM-less team ends Allen’s precipitous fall likely caused by health concerns.


18. Tennessee Titans


Adoree Jackson, CB, USC


Listed at cornerback but he is simply an explosive playmaker. Played both ways in college.


19. Tampa Bay Bucs


O.J. Howard, LB, Alabama


Have to wonder if Giants are kicking themselves for not trading up for the best TE in the draft.


20. Denver Broncos


Garett Bolles, OT, Utah


John Elway was desperate for O-line help. Rolled the dice on a one-year player for Utah.


21. Detroit Lions


Jarrad Davis, LB, Florida


Reuben Foster is the better linebacker talent, but Davis came without a diluted sample or combine meltdown.


22. Miami Dolphins


Charles Harris, DE, Missouri


Maybe he can do what Mario Williams couldn’t last year: get sacks.


23. New York Giants


Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss


Big Blue got its tight end, but not the one most fans wanted — or expected. On the smaller and leaner side for the position.


24. Oakland Raiders


Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State


Conley was off-limits for most teams after he was accused of rape earlier this week. The Raiders took a chance.


25. Cleveland Browns via Houston Texans


Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan


Peppers’ drug test came back diluted and he lacks a true position, which is why he fell this far.


26. Atlanta Falcons via Seattle Seahawks


Takkarist McKinley, DE, UCLA


After rumors of a move circulated all night, the Falcons traded up from pick 31 to take a top-5 defensive lineman in the draft. McKinley then honored his late grandmother by carrying a framed photo of her on stage.


27. Buffalo Bills via Kansas City Chiefs


Tre’Davious White, CB, LSU


This pick attempts to fill the hole left by Stephon Gilmore, who signed a massive deal with Patriots this offseason.


28. Dallas Cowboys


Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan


Texas loves tacos. Now American’s team has one of its own.


29. Cleveland Browns via Green Bay Packers


David Njoku, TE, Miami


This is the tight end most expected the Giants to take instead of Engram.


30. Pittsburgh Steelers


T.J. Watt, LB, Wisconsin


J.J.’s talented brother gets his shot in the NFL. Add in Derek, and there are now three Watts playing in the league.


31. San Francisco 49ers via Atlanta Falcons


Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama


He plummeted because of off-field concerns, but Foster is a playmaker and fierce, physical defender.


32. New Orleans Saints via New England Patriots


Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin


This was another potential Giants target that slipped out of their grasp.
