The 49ers cash in with some big-time playmakers among their first five selections: Temple linebacker Haason Reddick, USC cornerback Adoree' Jackson, Cal quarterback Davis Webb, Washington cornerback Sidney Jones and Louisiana Tech receiver Carlos Henderson.
Six CBS (NFL Draft Scout) analysts unanimously predicted Garrett as the first overall pick.
The Browns also have the 12th overall pick, and they possibly could use that as trade bait to move up and take Trubisky if they select Garrett at No. 1. The Browns, who are in dire need of a quarterback, but won't take one with their top pick, reportedly have made overtures to the Jets, who have the sixth pick, to trade up from their second spot in round one at 12 to leap frog Buffalo. Heck, the drama should have ended when defensive coordinator Gregg Williams told a room full of fans that they were taking the most athletic pass rusher to come out of college in years.
Recent reports state that the Cleveland Browns, the owners of the top pick, are split between picking Garrett and North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. We try to figure out how we can optimize the three days, particularly the first two where you can predict a little more. The Browns are loaded with picks in this year's and next year's draft.
Garrett is presumed to be Cleveland's top choice as well, and the team has done its homework on the 21-year-old, putting him through a private workout and getting to know him on a personal level. There have been numerous mock drafts floating around the internet suggesting the Bears will go with Alabama Crimson Tide defensive end Jonathan Allen to bolster their roster in that area. He could end up playing for the team he grew up rooting for, in Cleveland. Cleveland ended last season with a 1-15 record. While one club may highly value a player, that doesn't mean all clubs do. This is as close to "I AM DRAFTING MYLES BLEEPING GARRETT" as you will get from him. "The biggest thing is just the accountability thing of calling you out, being in your face, and there's really nothing you can do about it".
There has been a lot of discussion recently of the Bears trying to trade down from their No. 3 slot in the first round of the NFL Draft, which begins April 27. The teams that we play against have all been together a long time and have those systems very right. "We prepare a lot". "We will feel better about this year just because we have had more time to prepare and work with our entire scouting staff and coaching staff throughout the year", Brown said.
