National Football League draft results 2017: Big trades kick off eventful 2nd round

National Football League draft results 2017: Big trades kick off eventful 2nd round

As insane as it sounds to believe, the Cleveland Browns were one of the top winners from the 2017 NFL Draft after the team was able to land 10 picks this year over the seven rounds, including three of them in the first round.

Still, that doesn't mean Day 2 featuring Rounds 2 and 3 can't feature just as much talent in unforeseen places, with plenty of hidden gems waiting to be plucked on Friday evening.

Florida State's Dalvin Cook, who was chosen in the second round and 41st overall, became the highest drafted running back for the Seminoles in 20 years, or since former FSU standout Warrick Dunn was taken 12 in the 1997 NFL Draft. That said, the Cleveland Browns raked in three first round picks.

The NFL Draft and the MLB Draft are about as different as something in sports can be.

Philadelphia is embracing the NFL Draft this year, as Philly fans often do with their sporting events and teams. "I want to thank the Eagle fans for allowing me to have a career in the NFL".

UCLA's Takkarist McKinley carries a photograph of his grandmother onstage after being selected by the Atlanta Falcons during the first round of the 2017 NFL football draft, Thursday, April 27, 2017, in Philadelphia.

Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett was the first player selected, going first to the Cleveland Browns.




The 49ers have a sizable chunk of picks to close out the draft. Kansas City gave up a first-rounder Patrick Mahomes, an Air Raid quarterback with Manziel-level pocket presence and serious mechanical issues.

Not that it's a defining predictive measure necessarily: He wasn't drafted No. 2 overall, he wasn't a quarterback and his team didn't deplete their draft larder trading to get him, but Kyle Long had switched from defense to offense and had all of six starts coming out of OR and has been to the Pro Bowl three times. Clemson has now had a first-round draft selection in each of the last five years. Now, it is the most important thing to happen in the history of ever.

No one expected Western Michigan product Corey Davis to go No. 5 overall after he missed the post-draft process following ankle surgery, but Davis plays more like a true No. 1 receiver than anyone in this class. There have been few better assignments in recent years than playing wide receiver against the Saints, but Lattimore has a chance to change that quickly.

The New York Giants took Ole Miss tight end Evan Engram with the 23rd overall pick.

I'll analyze each pick, make predictions and share highlights as we go.

The University of Alabama ended up with four players drafted in the first round, which is in no way bad. Notice I say TEAM because one factor remained consistent.
