BEREA, Ohio (AP) The Browns didn't mess around with the No. 1 pick. They didn't find their franchise quarterback either.

Convinced that Myles Garrett was too good to pass up, Cleveland wasted no time in taking the consensus best player in the NFL draft with the first overall pick on Thursday night.

And although their biggest need remains a long-term answer at QB, Texas A&M's defensive standout should help one of the league's worst defenses.


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 turned out to be an aggressive dealer in his first draft as San Francisco 49ers general manager.

The front-office novice moved down one spot in the NFL draft on Thursday night before taking Stanford defensive lineman Solomon Thomas to upgrade a porous defense. He then used one of the three extra picks he got in that deal to move up from the second round to No. 31 overall to take Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster.


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) Deshaun Watson is the newest quarterback for the Houston Texans.

For now, the two-time Heisman Trophy finalist is also a backup.


Raiders take CB Conley despite rape case

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said his staff did extensive research on Gareon Conley before using the 24th overall pick in the draft on the talented but embattled Ohio State cornerback who has been accused of rape.

"We did our due diligence throughout this whole process and we trust our research, the reports, everything that we have on Mr. Conley," McKenzie said. "I don't want to get into all the details but the bottom line is we've done miles and miles of research to make sure we were totally comfortable with our decision, which we were."


Titans grab WMU WR Davis with 5th pick

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans headed into the draft needing to find more offensive help for quarterback Marcus Mariota while also boosting a defense that ranked 30th in the NFL against the pass last season.

With two first-round draft picks for the first time in three decades, the Titans addressed those concerns by selecting Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis with the fifth overall pick and versatile Southern California cornerback Adoree' Jackson at No. 18.


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.

Panthers get McCaffrey with 8th pick

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Panthers coach Ron Rivera talked after the season about the need for Carolina's offense to evolve.

He feels like the Panthers now have the player to make that happen.
