Mayfield NFL No.1 draft pick for Browns

Cleveland Browns used the first overall pick in the NFL Draft to select Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, kicking off a first round in which five QBs were selected, one shy of the record.

"The guy knows how to play, knows how to win," Browns general manager John Dorsey said of Heisman Trophy-winning Mayfield.

The more that 20,000 on hand inside of at AT&T Stadium, the first draft at an NFL stadium, erupted in cheers as commissioner Roger Goodell announced the Browns' decision.

With the No. 2 pick, the New York Giants selected Saquon Barkley of Penn State.

New York Jets then chose quarterback Sam Darnold of Southern California at No. 3.

The other quarterbacks taken were Wyoming's Josh Allen at No.7 by the Buffalo Bills, UCLA's Josh Rosen at No.10 by the Arizona Cardinals and Louisville's Lamar Jackson at No.32 by the Baltimore Ravens.

All three teams traded up to grab those players.

Cleveland threw a curveball with its No.4 selection, taking Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward.

A shake-up in the draft order occurred after the Colts drafted sixth.

Barkley, considered by many analysts as the top player in the draft, will join an offensive unit that includes Eli Manning, Odell Beckham Jr., Evan Engram and Sterling Shepard.

"Saquon is who we wanted," Giants GM Dave Gettleman said. "We were thrilled he was there.

"In all the years I've done scouting, I've only given one 9.0 grade. That was Peyton Manning. And this guy is a 9.0."

Darnold, who only a few days ago appeared to be a lock as the top overall choice, ended up in New York.

"I couldn't be happier," he said.

Another trade put the Cardinals at No.10, in position to select Rosen.

"There were nine mistakes made ahead of me," Rosen said.

Jackson, a dual threat who won the Heisman Trophy in 2016, was selected with the final pick of the opening round.

"It's on," a stoic Jackson said. "All day, every day."

North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb gives the Broncos a potent pass rusher

Broncos vice president John Elway said the Broncos rated Chubb "the best defensive player in the draft."

At No.6, the Colts selected Notre Dame offensive guard Quenton Nelson.

After Allen went to Buffalo, the Chicago Bears selected Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith with the eighth pick.

Nelson's college teammate, offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey, went No.9 to the San Francisco 49ers.

Brothers were selected in the same opening round for the first time when Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds went to Buffalo and older sibling Terrell was drafted by Pittsburgh.
