Starting with Bears, surprises galore on Day 1 of NFL draft


So, in lieu of winners and losers, we focus on teams that did things which made sense, and things that didn't make sense.

It started with the Chicago Bears giving up third- and fourth-round picks to move up just one slot in order to select Trubisky second overall - and that set the tone for more wheeling and dealing to land quarterbacks. Whatever happens on the trade front, DeShone Kizer should be the first quarterback taken in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. If the Bears truly think Trubisky is the guy, then great.

King said Friday that the three of them pushed each other to improve.

It was only the third time in the common-draft era Kansas City selected a quarterback in the first round, and the first since Todd Blackledge failed to live up to expectations from the 1983 draft. Mahomes is a backyard player with awful mechanics, highly suspect accuracy, and an inability to consistently make plays from the pocket. When you're watching those games, you're seeing a kid that you believe is the most talented player on the field just about every time he's on it, and you're hoping the fact that he's at Western Michigan won't hinder his future. Full disclosure, I'm not a doctor, nor did anyone show me Rueben Foster's injury report. "I promise you, it's going in the bank". Davis will play well, and probably have a good career in Detroit. But, there's nothing not to like about what they did Thursday night.

Prior to Conley getting drafted, fellow former Buckeye corner Marshon Lattimore was taken 11th overall by the New Orleans Saints while former OSU safety Malik Hooker was selected four picks later by the Indianapolis Colts. Derrick Rose wouldn't trade knees with Ross, but that didn't stop the Bengals from making him a top-10 pick.

Drake Is Hosting First NBA Awards on TNT
It looks like the National Basketball Association wants to bring "More Life" to their first ever award ceremony. It'd be a major surprise not to see him try to top "Side Pieces" with a new musical number of some sort.

The Browns also picked up Michigan's Jabrill Peppers (No.25) and Miami tight end David Njoku (No.29) in the first-round.

This quarterback class did not have a consensus best player.

Jonathan Allen, defensive lineman, Alabama to Washington at No. 17. And there are teams that have big needs that need to be addressed at this point.

We'll see soon enough who the newest members of the Indianapolis Colts will be! When that didn't pan out he lobbied his way into a walk-on spot with his hometown program, Temple, but even that only lasted for a year, before Reddick was told there was no more room for him. Yes, a team gave up picks to San Francisco for a QB who in 2016 went 8-5 - in his one year as a starter.
