BEREA, Ohio (AP) The Browns didn't mess around with the No. 1 pick.

Myles Garrett was the consensus best player in the NFL draft, and Cleveland made sure he didn't go anywhere else.

Although their biggest need remains a franchise quarterback, the Browns selected Texas A&M's defensive standout first overall, a pick that had been projected for weeks.


Bears move up to No. 2, grab QB Trubisky

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) Mitchell Trubisky didn't see it coming either.

The Chicago Bears drafted their latest quarterback of the future in a stunner Thursday night, grabbing North Carolina's Trubisky with the No. 2 overall pick after trading up a spot with the San Francisco 49ers and surrendering three draft choices to do it.


49ers select DL Thomas with 3rd pick

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) John Lynch got the player he wanted and some extra picks in his first draft as San Francisco 49ers general manager.

The front-office novice was able to move down one spot in the NFL draft on Thursday night before taking Stanford defensive lineman Solomon Thomas to upgrade a porous defense. The Niners got the 67th overall pick and pick No. 111 this year and a third-rounder next year from Chicago in the deal as the Bears wanted to move up to draft North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.


Jaguars pick RB Fournette at No. 4

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Tom Coughlin wanted more offensive playmakers in Jacksonville. So it was no surprise to see him grab one of the best in college football over the last three years.

The Jaguars selected LSU star running back Leonard Fournette with the fourth overall pick in the NFL draft Thursday night, giving Coughlin the bruising back he craves in his return to the floundering franchise.


Texans trade up, get QB Watson at No. 12

HOUSTON (AP) The Houston Texans addressed their need at quarterback by trading with Cleveland to select Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson with the 12th overall pick in the NFL draft on Thursday night.

Raiders take CB Conley despite rape case

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) Despite rape allegations that emerged days before the draft, Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley was taken by the Oakland Raiders with the No. 24 pick on Thursday night.

Conley seemed like a lock to be selected early in the first round until earlier this week, when it was revealed that he had been accused of sexually assaulting a woman in Cleveland.


Titans grab WMU WR Davis with 5th pick

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans addressed their two biggest concerns by selecting Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis and Southern California cornerback Adoree' Jackson in the first round of the NFL draft.

Tennessee chose Davis with the fifth overall pick and selected Jackson at No. 18. The Titans wanted to give quarterback Marcus Mariota additional weapons while also boosting their secondary after ranking 30th in the NFL in pass defense last season.


LSU S Adams goes to Jets at No. 6

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Jamal Adams unexpectedly slid a few spots down the draft board - and the New York Jets couldn't believe their fortunes.

So, with the LSU safety still available, there was little doubt as to whom the Jets would take with the No. 6 overall pick.


Clemson WR Williams to Chargers at No. 7

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Chargers used their first draft choice after their move north on a playmaker who could attract plenty of attention in their new home.
