The Cleveland Browns came into the 2018 NFL Draft with four of the top 35 picks, and two of the top four. It was widely expected that they’d take a quarterback at No. 1, and that is indeed what they did: they selected Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield to be their QB of the future.

It was at No. 4 where the Browns made their first surprising selection of the weekend. Most people considered NC State defensive end Bradley Chubb to be the top defensive player in the draft, and when he was still available at No. 4, figured the ability to pair Chubb with last year’s No. 1 overall pick, Myles Garrett, along the defensive line would be too enticing to pass up.

The Broncos likely won’t be contending for an AFC West title this year, as the Los Angeles Chargers were a kicker away from the playoffs last year and the Kansas City Chiefs Womens Vernon Butler Jersey could repeat Patrick Mahomes can replicate Alex Smith’s passing stats. Don’t assume Denver is going to have another top-five pick next year, though.

Their draft class and the signing of former Vikings quarterback Case Keenum should give the Broncos stability, removing some of the low-end scenarios that plagued them in 2017.

The Detroit Lions are clearly the third-best team in the NFC North, trailing the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers (with a healthy Aaron Rodgers) but ahead of the Chicago Bears. New head coach Matt Patricia will impact the product on the field, though.

The New York Giants were open to trading Ereck Flowers during the NFL draft. It just didn’t happen, in part because of the price.

The Giants were looking for a mid-round draft pick in return for Flowers, according to a source. That wasn’t going to happen, given the level of his play and contract.

The price was considered significantly too steep for one team, and it ultimately didn’t lure any bites. Flowers is guaranteed $2.4 million this season.

Since selecting quarterback Jameis Winston first overall in 2015, the Bucs have gone 20-28, including 5-11 last season. In 42 seasons of NFL football in Tampa Bay, the team has only had seven seasons with 10 or more wins. In contrast, the Bucs have recorded 10 or more losses 25 times in their history as a team.
