Jaguars selected LSU RB Leonard Fournette with the No. 4 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft.

Needing to upgrade their running game to help embattled starter Blake Bortles, the Jaguars have been linked with Fournette for most of the pre-draft process. Standing 6-foot-1, 240 pounds, Fournette arrived in Baton Route as the nation’s No. 1 recruit and met expectations with a career 616-3,830-40 (6.22 YPC) rushing line, turning pro as LSU’s all-time leader in yards per carry and No. 2 in yards from scrimmage per game (155.7). A hulking downhill runner with 4.51 speed, Fournette’s limitations come in the passing game, where he dropped 8-of-48 catchable targets as a Tiger. He also battled a recurring left ankle injury in 2016, suffering repeated setbacks and missing 6-of-13 games. When healthy, Fournette has drawn comparisons to Bo Jackson and Herschel Walker as a size-speed freak. His arrival is bad news for Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon with Ivory projecting to take the biggest hit.

49ers selected Stanford DE Solomon Thomas with the No. 3 pick in the 2017 draft.

Thomas (6’3/275) turned pro as a redshirt sophomore after tallying 25.5 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks, and four fumble recoveries in only two years at Stanford. He earned the 2016 Morris Trophy as the Pac 12’s top defensive lineman. An exceptional athlete for his size, Thomas registered 94th-percentile SPARQ results in Indy with 30 reps on the bench. On tape, Thomas is a dominant run defender who wins with an uncommon blend of power, speed, and quickness on the interior. From a utility standpoint, Thomas’ best NFL comparisons are Seahawks DE/DT Michael Bennett and Panthers DE/DT Charles Johnson.

Bears traded up with the 49ers to select North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Stunning. Owners of the No. 3 pick, Chicago surrendered this year's Nos. 3, 67 and 111 selections and a 2018 third-rounder to move up one spot. It means they faced intense competition. Trubisky (6’2/222) sat behind 2016 Packers camp arm Marquise Williams his first two seasons at UNC before taking the starting reigns as a redshirt junior last season and leading the Tar Heels to an 8-5 mark with school records in passing yards (3,748) and touchdowns (30). A plus athlete with 4.67 speed, Trubisky added five rushing TDs and is a legitimate scrambling threat. On tape, Trubisky impresses as a tough competitor with a quick release, but he showed a tendency to get squeamish when pressured and made only 13 college starts. The small sample makes him a frightening prospect. Nevertheless, Trubisky looks the part of a potential mid-range NFL starter with Ryan Tannehill-level tools. He'll compete with Mike Glennon for the Bears' starting job.

Browns selected Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Sanity prevails as Cleveland selects the best player in the draft rather than reaching for one of this year's low-probability quarterback projects. Garrett (6’5/272) arrived in College Station as a top-two high school recruit and spent his full three-year career as the Aggies’ best player, amassing 48.5 tackles for loss, 32.5 sacks, and seven forced fumbles. Garrett ruined SEC offensive schemes with a fierce bull rush, lightning-quick inside spin move, and incredible burst off the snap. He also received strong run-defense grades from PFF College. A complete edge defender with basketball-player athleticism, Garrett crushed the vertical (41"), broad jump (10’8"), bench (33), forty (4.64), and Wonderlic (31) at the Combine. After dominating college football at its highest level, Garrett should the Browns a long-term difference maker at one of the highest-value positions in the sport.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bears are "considering trading back from No. 3."

The Bears are one of three teams in the top five -- the 49ers and Titans round out the list -- interested in trading back. With the Jaguars at No. 4 rumored to be in the quarterback market, the Bears are in a good spot if the Browns want to jump back up for UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky. If the Bears stand pat, they are reportedly interested in Stanford DL Solomon Thomas, LSU S Jamal Adams, and Ohio State CB Marshon Lattimore.

Profootballtalk reports Florida LB Jarrad Davis won't get past the Dolphins at No. 22.

Considered a surefire first-rounder, Davis has been bandied about as a mid-evening pick. The Miami Herald has the Dolphins locked into a defensive end, but perhaps that's under the assumption Davis won't be there.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Chiefs are the team making the "most noise" about trading up, perhaps into the top 10.

Could the Chiefs be looking for an exit strategy from the Alex Smith era? Syracuse.com reported earlier Thursday that Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes is expected to go in the top 10, and that the Chiefs are "known to love him." That's still a fair amount of dot connecting, but perhaps sensing a window that won't be open much longer, the Chiefs are on the hunt for an impact player.

The Post-Standard reports Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes is expected to go in the top 10.

Per reporter Matthew Fairburn, the Chiefs are "known to love" Mahomes, and are considering a trade up. The top 10 isn't lacking for quarterback-needy teams, including the team Fairburn covers, the Bills, at No. 10. Although this is considered a relatively poor quarterback class, teams appear prepared to go as crazy as usual pursuing football's most important position.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reports the Browns have been "working the phones" trying to trade up from No. 12 overall to draft Mitchell Trubisky.

Cabot, via multiple league sources, reports the Browns will take Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick and then focus their attention on coming up from No. 12 to land Trubisky. It'll be easier said than done, but Cleveland has plenty of draft ammo to pull it off if they want. Cabot reports talks will get going if Trubisky falls into the pick Nos. 5-6 range of the first round. The 49ers, Bears, and even the Jaguars are options to take Trubisky at Nos. 2-4 when Cleveland passes at No. 1.
Apr 27 - 4:38 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Ole Miss TE Evan Engram could "sneak" into the first round.

Engram wouldn't exactly be sneaking, as he's been billed as a potential late first-rounder since early in the draft process. Engram is generally considered an exceptionally strong tight end class' No. 3 player behind O.J. Howard and David Njoku. Engram is a dynamic pass catcher with 4.42 speed, but isn't exactly honed at the finer points of one of football's most difficult positions.
Apr 27 - 4:32 PM

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the Browns will select Texas A&M EDGE Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick.

Even the Browns can't screw this one up. Cabot's report comes via "multiple league sources." While the smoke around Mitchell Trubisky possibly leaping Garrett and becoming the Browns' preferred choice at No. 1 has been heavy, Cabot reports the Browns have been "working the phones" trying to trade up from No. 12 in order to come away with both Garrett and Trubisky on Thursday.
