Report: 49ers, Bears, Jets 'most antsy' to trade back in 1st round

  Report: 49ers, Bears, Jets 'most antsy' to trade back in 1st round Three of the teams sitting in the top six picks of April's upcoming draft are reportedly the most anxious about moving down to gain some extra capital. The San Francisco 49ers (second overall), Chicago Bears (third overall), and the New York Jets (sixth overall) are the teams who are "most antsy" about trading back in the first round of the draft, Peter King of MMQB.com reports.Myles Garrett is thought to be a lock as the first overall pick of the Cleveland Browns in the 2017 draft (though even that is reportedly now in dispute), but the rest of the top 10 is anyone's guess.

After DeShone Kizer sat through the entire first round of the draft in Philadelphia Thursday night without hearing his name called, he decided to return home to Toledo, Ohio rather The Cleveland Browns selected Kizer , the former Notre Dame quarterback , in the second round with the No. 52.

DeShone Kizer had to watch three other quarterbacks come off the board before him and wait until the second round of the 2017 NFL draft, but he found his landing spot on Friday.

The Cleveland Browns selected the former Notre Dame quarterback on Thursday with the No. 52 overall pick.

The Browns drafted Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick on Thursday, and then moved back in a trade with the Houston Texans. North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky (No. 2 to Chicago Bears), Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes (No. 10 to Kansas City Chiefs) and Clemson's Deshaun Watson (No. 12 to the Houston Texans) all went in the top half of the first round.

Report: Browns still seriously considering Trubisky at No. 1

  Report: Browns still seriously considering Trubisky at No. 1 The Cleveland Browns are still seriously considering drafting Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 1 overall pick in next week’s NFL Draft, according to a report. Browns executive Sashi Brown showed signs during the week that the team was not divided over whom to take with the top pick. Many believed the implication was that they are set on pass rusher Myles Garrett. But there has been talk that there is a split between what the coaches want and what the front office wants. On Friday, a report said ownership was pushing for the team to draft a QB.

The Cleveland Browns passed on both Deshaun Watson and Mitchell Trubisky in the first round of the NFL Draft , but they found their quarterback on Day 2

Cody Kessler replaced DeShone Kizer as the Browns quarterback struggled. When Jackson exited his news conference, he crossed paths with Kizer in the hallway as the quarterback headed toward the Jackson said the turnovers trumped any effect the move may have made on Kizer 's confidence.

At 6-4 and 230 pounds, Kizer's impressive physical tools drew the admiration of scouts. But he struggled last season and completed just 58.7% of his passes as Notre Dame went a disappointing 4-8. 

Coach Brian Kelly said earlier in April that Kizer "should still be in college" and needs time to develop.

“No one else can do what I can do," Kizer told USA TODAY Sports before the draft. "And I’ve truly figured out in this (draft) process, if I can maximize all my potential in every aspect of the game – this is bold – I do have the ability to be the greatest quarterback to ever play. Imagine taking (Tom) Brady’s intellect and Brady’s preparation and putting it on a guy with Cam Newton’s body. Why can’t I be the greatest? The only thing stopping me from it is me. That’s what’s driving me now.”

Instant analysis: Bears trade up, draft North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky

  Instant analysis: Bears trade up, draft North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky The Chicago Bears traded up to the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, taking North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky .The Bears gave up a third-round pick and a fourth-round pick in this draft to move up just one spot, along with a third-round pick in the 2018 draft.This move is more than curious, considering the Bears just gave a big-money deal to a young veteran in Mike Glennon, paying him an average of $15 million per year over the next three seasons. Now, the Bears have given themselves a potential quarterback controversy by trading multiple picks to move up and spend such a high pick on another passer.
