It moves pretty quickly, especially compared to the slow pace of rounds one through three.

The seven selections brings the ACC to a total to 11 draftees in the first three rounds of the NFL Draft.

Every player is happy at the first round of the draft.

So far so good for Cleveland, which isn't exactly prone to being content with how things initially look in the draft.

The Texans addressed their need at quarterback by trading with Cleveland to select Clemson standout Deshaun Watson with the 12th overall pick in the National Football League draft on Thursday night.

The seventh round just wrapped up for the 2017 NFL Draft. San Francisco's first-year GM got the Bears to pull the trigger on a costly trade up for Mitchell Trubisky, then landed a player the 49ers needed at pick No. 3 anyway in Stanford star Solomon Thomas, and then jumped back into Round 1 to get another top-five talent in Reuben Foster.

More than 10 trades were made as teams jockeyed for position during unpredictable first, second and third rounds.

"It was just pretty much silence", Trubisky said. The Browns will start to earn more patience from fans and analysts if this first-round trio produces quickly. I just think they. were impressed with me at the combine and my workout.

Give general manager Jon Robinson and coach Mike Mularkey credit for knowing that a strong running game will not be enough in the year 2017. For QB needy teams such as the Browns, and Cardinals (Palmer is said to be playing in his final season and he is supposed to get lots of time off) they should not be afraid to take a guy in hopes he establishes himself.

Indianapolis Colts - Colts defensive end Kendall Langford will make picks from the Indianapolis Zoo, along with staff personnel.

New England traded back from its first chance to pick and still ended up with intriguing, smaller-school upside picks in hybrid edge player Derek Rivers (Youngstown State) and potential future left tackle Antonio Garcia (Troy).

New York Jets: I'll talk about the Jets picks on "Day Three" with extreme caution, considering that after all this is still the New York Jets, but on paper, it's possible that the New York franchise found themselves an impressive group of new pieces. Although he needs to clean up reckless tendencies in both run support and coverage, Wilson is always ball searching and flashes down-the-road starting traits. For months, Garrett was projected to be the top pick in this year's draft, and while the Browns were considering all options at No. 1 since they were also in need of a quarterback, it's safe to say this was their best option.
