Draft Browns Football

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

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Defense was supposed to dominate in the first round of the NFL draft.

It did, eventually. It just took a while.

After the Browns took Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick Thursday night, eight of the next 11 picks were offensive players in a surprising opening day. Overall, 19 of the 32 players were from the defense, which was closer to projections.

The first stunning move was the Bears trading with the 49ers to select North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky at No. 2.
