Ravens selected Texas A&M OG Jermaine Eluemunor with the No. 159 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Eluemunor (6’4/332) started only one season, shuttling between right guard and right tackle as a fifth-year senior. He is originally from London and starred as a wrestler in high school. Eluemunor is extremely raw with limited football experience, but he possesses incredible upper-body strength and surprising athleticism for his meaty build. He ran 5.22 and did 34 bench-press reps at the Combine. Eluemunor likely needs a developmental year before pushing for NFL snaps.

Rams selected Texas A&M WR Josh Reynolds with the No. 117 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Reynolds (6’3/194) started all three years at TAMU after transferring from JUCO, recording a 164-2,788-30 (17.0 YPR) receiving line. Despite a high-scoring college career, Reynolds never earned All-SEC recognition. He helped himself in Indy, shining in the vertical (37") and broad (10’4") jumps and running 4.52. Reynolds’ toughness, competitiveness, and elite ball skills stand out on tape. His slender build and experience as strictly a right-side boundary receiver in the Aggies’ Air Raid offense are Reynolds’ biggest NFL obstacles. Rotoworld’s Josh Norris has compared Reynolds’ skill set to ex-Bengals WR Chris Henry.

Panthers selected Texas A&M DE Daeshon Hall with the No. 77 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

The Panthers sent Arizona picks No. 98 and 115 to move up. Hall (6’5/266) bookended Myles Garrett on a ferocious Aggies defensive line, tallying 36.5 career tackles for loss, 16 sacks, and four forced fumbles as a two-plus-year starter. While not as explosive as Garrett, Hall possesses incredibly long arms (35 5/8") and is a plus athlete, running 4.76 at the Combine with running back-like vertical (36") and broad (10’3") jumps. Hall lacked standout sack production at TAMU, but he has experience at 4-3 end, 3-4 end, and 3-4 outside linebacker and is an intriguing traits-based prospect whose motor popped on tape.

Bucs selected Texas A&M S Justin Evans with the No. 50 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft.

Evans (6’0/199) spent his junior and senior seasons in College Station after transferring from community college, starting both years and tallying six tackles for loss with five interceptions. SEC coaches voted him second-team all-conference in 2016. Evans also played special teams, averaging an impressive 28.5 yards per kick return as a senior. Physical with plus ball skills, Evans flashed combination free-strong safety ability with outstanding range on tape. He is a springy athlete with a 41 ½-inch vertical and 10-foot-9 broad jump. Evans’ main flaw is a tendency to miss tackles due to over-aggressiveness. Regardless, he is an upside prospect in the D.J. Swearinger mold.

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

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 give the Browns a long-term difference maker at one of the highest-value positions.

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

Cabot cites "multiple league sources." Rumors have swirled over the past 24 hours that the Browns would audible off Garrett to take UNC's Mitch Trubisky at No. 1. Numerous plugged-in draft writers (Mel Kiper, Todd McShay and Bob McGinn, to name three) predicted just that in their final mock drafts. While it might appear that cooler heads have prevailed here, Cabot wrote that "some [in the Browns' brass] have known for a while that Garrett was the pick." The Browns are currently trying to trade back into the top-10, from No. 12, to acquire Trubisky. Between the No. 33 overall pick (the first in Round 2) and three second-round picks in 2018, Cleveland has plenty of trade ammunition.

According to NFL.com's Lance Zierlein, Texas A&M DE Daeshon Hall is "being targeted within the first two rounds and might end up inside the top 40."

The media has generally pegged Myles Garrett's running mate between Rounds 3-4. Interestingly, an AFC scout foretold this scenario in a conversation with NFL Media in October. "I know (Myles) Garrett is the big-name guy but Daeshon Hall is a name that is going to get hot," he said. "I didn't think he had starting potential when he was an outside 'backer. Now that he's bigger and stronger and playing with his hand down, I think he's a different player. I see him as a second-day (Rounds 2-3) guy."

The Browns have decided upon who they will take with the No. 1 selection, NFL Network's Michael Silver reports.

Browns general manager Sashi Brown told Silver that Cleveland settled on its choice two weeks ago and "only three or four people in the world" know who it is. We're not one of those people, but the football world will explode if it isn't Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett. Cleveland's next goal is reportedly to trade up to take North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky.

Former Dallas Cowboys QB Stephen McGee believes that Texas A&M QB Trevor Knight will make an NFL roster.

McGee played his college ball at Texas A&M before being selected by the Cowboys in the fourth round of the 2009 draft. While he has some obvious bias when it comes to fellow Aggies QB Knight, he said, "He’s got the ability to make people around him better. He came into a situation that wasn’t ideal and he immediately found favor in the locker room and led those guys. That’s proven." He added that Knight will "have a chance to come in and compete for a third quarterback spot." The Cowboys, Seahawks and Jets are among those who have reportedly expressed interest in the 6-foot-1, 215-pound Oklahoma transfer. Knight is doggedly attempting to stay at quarterback despite the fact that a position change to receiver or safety might be a better long-term play.

Hall of Fame defensive lineman Warren Sapp doesn't believe Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett is worthy of being the No. 1 pick.

"I don't see it from this kid," Sapp said. "I see the splash plays -- everybody gets those. Where's the game he took over? Where? Any defensive lineman who's the No. 1 pick, you turn up and you say, 'There it is!' This kid, no, I don't. I'm a pretty plain and frank guy, and I watch the tape and he disappears." Garrett is the odds-on favorite to go No. 1 to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night. "I don't think this kid is as good as Courtney Brown, either," Sapp said, evoking Cleveland's No. 1 overall pick in the 2000 draft. Sapp believes Garrett's evaluation is based on his measurables, not his game. "I see a lazy kid that makes four plays a game," Sapp said. "This is the No. 1 guy? No, no, no. This ain't even close." We disagree with the idea that Garrett didn't heavily influence every game he played in at Texas A&M. Garrett posted 31 sacks and 47 TFL over 34 collegiate games despite consistent double-teams.

The Browns have fielded calls for the No. 1 pick but don't intend to trade down.

"We have received calls," Cleveland GM Sashi Brown said. "We feel really good about picking at one." Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett is all but locked into that top slot. Cleveland is also reportedly interested in Mitch Trubisky. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell reported Wednesday that the Browns have spoken to the Jets about the possibility of moving up from No. 12 to No. 6 to take a signal-caller.

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett admitted to "choking out" an LSU tight end during a game on Thanksgiving night.

When asked what was the meanest thing he'd ever done, Garrett responded: "Against LSU my last year, I choked out their tight end two times in a row." The interview responded "That’s pretty mean," to which Garrett laughed and said: "He had it coming. He just kept holding me, so I picked him up, put him on his back and then I grabbed his face mask and kept jamming his helmet into the ground. I said, 'I’m setting you straight right now. Don’t do illegal holds.'" NOLA.com investigated the tape and found that Garrett actually flattened two LSU tight ends, DeSean Smith and Foster Moreau.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that Texas A&M S Justin Evans has "recently surfaced as a first-round target for Atlanta."

Pauline also thinks the Cowboys may be interested in Evans as a late-Rd. 1 pick. Dallas owns the No. 28 pick, and the Falcons come on the clock shortly thereafter at No. 31. This report is something to keep an eye on, as it flies in the face of the online draft community's current reading of Evans' stock. For instance, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler didn't list Evans in a two-round mock published on Tuesday and Rotoworld's Josh Norris didn't have Evans going in Round 1 of his own most recent mock exercise. In Atlanta, Evans would likely start from Day 1 across from Keanu Neal, the team's first-round selection last year. In Dallas, he would help fortify a ravaged positional group that lost both Barry Church and J.J. Wilcox in free agency.
Apr 18 - 12:41 PM

An AFC area scout said that Texas A&M WR Speedy Noil is not on his board due to a confluence of factors.

"He is off of our board. Good athlete, but not a good football player and not a guy we want in our locker room," the scout said. The former five-star recruit was arrested multiple times during his Texas A&M career. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein believes that despite the 5-foot-11, 199-pounder's athletic upside, "character concerns inside the scouting community could make Noil a difficult sell until after the draft."

Apr 15 - 2:34 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline hears that the Cowboys and Falcons have both hosted Texas A&M S Justin Evans for visits.

Evans is not a guarantee to be drafted in the first round, but Pauline relays that the 6-foot, 199-pounder has "a chance to slide into the very late part of Round 1." The Cowboys have an obvious need at safety, having lost both Barry Church and J.J. Wilcox in free agency. They hold pick No. 28, while the Falcons hold pick No. 31. When it comes to Atlanta, Pauline writes that "Evans would also be a nice complement to Keanu Neal, last year’s first-round selection, and he offers the defense more of a rangy safety who can play sideline-to-sideline while being an asset stopping the run."
