Slides (Foster), surges (Davis) from 1st round of NFL draft

Those teams have resisted the urge to go for a less talented player at a flashier position, as the statute goes, and instead have made the kind of unemotional and smart picks that help football teams win football games.

Jones, 20, was available to become the Eagles' second-round pick only because he tore his left Achilles tendon at his pro day in March, a significant injury that sank his draft stock and put part - or maybe all - of his 2017 season in doubt.

The Browns will have two first-round picks, three second-round picks and two fourth-round picks in the 2018 draft. In the first round, we saw three quarterbacks taken.

"It was a sixth-round pick and we felt the value was there to go get him", GM Dave Caldwell said.

While Douglas will be able to play early this season unlike Jones, the Eagles claim that wasn't the reason they came back with another cornerback pick so quickly.

When the draft resumes Saturday afternoon, West Virginia center Tyler Orlosky anticipates being selected, potentially followed by Noble Nwachukwu, Shelton Gibson, Christian Brown, Daikiel Shorts and Rushel Shell. "I love the contact, I love playing with 10 other guys on defense, I love everything about it", said Barnett at an introductory news conference on Friday. "We're not going to rush anything". "I didn't have much opportunity to play football coming out of high school because I was so thin". All of the 32 National Football League franchises make up to seven rounds' worth of rookie acquisitions in order to build and maintain competitive rosters for seasons to come.

"He's a difference maker at cornerback".

"We spent a lot of time going through scenarios", Roseman said.

Flooding should ease in North Carolina on Tuesday
Duke Energy reported Tuesday afternoon that it had restored power to all but about 1,000 customers who lost it in North and SC . One Wake County location (near Falls Lake) reported 6.90 inches of rain in just under 24 hours through early Tuesday morning.

Barnett is the first UT defensive lineman drafted since the Pittsburgh Steelers picked Daniel McCullers in the sixth round (No. 215 overall) in 2014.

Last season, Shaheen set a Division II record with 16 touchdown catches.

"The thing that stands out: his length, his feet".

Joe is vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas, who compared Barnett favorably with Ravens star Terrell Suggs.

However, it's uncertain if Jones will lose a bit of his speed following surgery. "No other city can you just say we're having this championship, we're having this event that involves sports (except the Sixers), that people would just show up". He is a player we have done a lot of work on. "When we were this close, within reach of a player that was all really valued, I didn't want to sit on our hands and risk not getting that player".

That was the operative phrase summing up the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, which will be remembered for the stunning moves that blew up mock drafts across the land.

He may not ultimately go down as the Michael Jordan of this draft class, but some team will make a deal to move to into the top 10 to select Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson.
