In Historic Draft for Quarterbacks, the Position Remains a Mystery

How Baker Mayfield and girlfriend celebrated draft night

Darnold, Rosen and Barkley all saw their names taken off the board in the top 10 to no surprise. That pick is a bit more understandable.

There were no quarterbacks taken in the second round. Instead, off-the-field concerns made him fall all the way to Washington with the No. 59 pick. I placed each pro player into one of those five buckets, then showed those groupings to the coaches, to fine-tune my assessments using the opinions of those who have worked with players on a firsthand basis. In short, the cornerback play has been nearly as consistently poor as the quarterback play.

Mayfield led FBS with a 70.5 completion percentage in 2017, and he set a single-season record by averaging 11.5 yards per attempt.

Versatile and "nasty" Nevada offensive lineman Austin Corbett came to Cleveland with the 33rd pick.

On the eve of the draft, Mayfield re-created an iconic photo of Brett Favre lying in his home bedroom when the future Hall of Fame quarterback got the phone call from the Atlanta Falcons in 1991 that they had drafted him. At 6-foot-2 and 252 pounds, he is a bit undersized to line up exclusively at defensive end and might have to develop into an outside linebacker. At the NFL Combine, Leonard ran a 4.7 40-yard dash and apparently convinced Chris Ballard that he can be a difference-maker on the second level in Indianapolis.

Former Trojans starter Carson Palmer produced a solid career for the Bengals, Raiders and Cardinals, but he never played in a Super Bowl. Maybe a tackle such as Texas' Connor Williams.

The Packers getting the gambling Jaire Alexander in Round 1 is better now after Green Bay caught a first-round talent in Jackson in Round 2.

Remember when it seemed as if they could win no more than one or two games - or even none - last season to have a path to Darnold? South Carolina, Florida and Arkansas were also represented on day one of the draft. The Bears stayed busy by landing center James Daniel and wide receiver Anthony Miller with a pair of picks.

ESPN Cleveland's Aaron Goldhammer told his listening audience for weeks that he would eat horse poop if the Browns drafted Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield last night. It also took cornerback Denzel Ward of Ohio State.

Chubb is among the best to ever lace up the cleats at Georgia. Given that both guard spots and right tackle is solidified, Corbett is destined to play left tackle. He was a team captain as a sophomore. He's tough in the short-yardage areas. And, of course, the New York Giants selected Saquon Barkley second overall, the first time a running back has gone in the top-two in over a decade (Reggie Bush in 2006).

Stroll's three 14th-place finishes are its best results so far this year and he's not expecting much improvement this weekend. But to be pioneering, which we have been for the last four years, this team has been exceptional.

Cleveland has opened the second round of the National Football League draft by taking Nevada center Austin Corbett.

The pick was announced by Browns great Jim Brown, the franchise's all-time leading rusher. He was team captain as a sophomore. 23 and 31 overall (or if they'd trade).

Jarwin, undrafted a year ago, spent most of the season on the practice squad. Hurst was the most complete tight end in college football last year, and he will be a great weapon for Joe Flacco (or Lamar Jackson!) over the next couple years. Despite multiple first-round quarterback selections over the years the first overall selection of Mayfield is the highest the Browns have taken a quarterback since Tim Couch out of Kentucky in '99.

With a total of 30 million viewers, the draft easily outdrew an National Basketball Association playoff game on TNT: Bucks-Celtics had a 2.4 million average.

The second and third rounds are underway on Friday night, and we have you covered every step of the way.

The NFL likes to trot out its legends. Williams, who was in attendance, was forced to wait some more.

Lots of brothers have made it to the NFL. Linebacker Tremaine went 16th to Buffalo.

Tremaine is only 19 and will be one of the youngest players in the league.

"I've been able to be accepted into the fatherhood and have my first child, my daughter", he said.

"I was really angry teams were passing on me, and I was honestly expecting to get picked at some point and have to fake a smile and go up there and pretend to be happy", he said. It was a competitive household for Ferrell's sons. There is a chance that the coverage will be unavailable for those people outside the United States, but there's a solution for that.
