NFL's wild opening round could yield more surprises on Day 2

Yet three went among the first 12 picks in the first round Thursday night, with two whopping trades putting the Bears and Chiefs in position to grab quarterbacks.

Houston ended up giving up a 2018 first-round pick, moving from 25th to the Cleveland Browns' 12th spot. They then traded up to select Miami tight end David Njoku. The 21-year-old defensive end was seen as the top star in the Draft, and was picked by the Cleveland Browns. I'm happy to be a member of the Cleveland Browns organization. He led Clemson to the national title past year and with a good training camp, he could end up starting for the Texans. Except that when asked about that very subject, general manager Sashi Brown said, "It may be something we can't get comfortable with".

He was considered a fringe first-round prospect and Melifonwu should be selected early on Friday when the second round begins, while fellow Londoner Jermaine Eluemunor could also possibly be a day-two pick.

The 6-foot-4, 272-pound defensive end had been atop virtually every mock draft as the consensus No. 1 overall pick for months - though there was late speculation that Cleveland might reach for North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky the No. 1 pick. Cleveland plays the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1, and Myles Garrett said he's coming after Ben Roethlisberger.

"It's not like we didn't try", coach Hue Jackson said. "We're not going to rest now". He had 33 tackles and nine sacks in 13 games. "I'm going to keep that feeling contagious".

"It was really just a weight off of my shoulders to finally just get the announcement that what I have been working for is finally came to fruition and I can actually know where I am going, know who I am going up against and know the schedule", Garrett said.

Garrett recorded 32½ sacks during his three seasons with the Aggies.

Bolles' selection fills a dire need at left tackle for the Broncos as they seek to bounce back from the first playoff-less season in GM John Elway's six-year tenure. It ranked 31st defensively and had only 26 sacks.

LSU running back Leonard Fournette became the second SEC player when he went fourth overall to Jacksonville.

One thing almost all the analysts agreed on is that this draft featured a weak quarterback class.

Peppers tested for a diluted urine sample at the Combine.
