"In order to be my best, I need to play with an edge", he wrote.

Entering the draft, Rosen looked like the most polished passing prospect, but was often criticized for being "too smart", which is ridiculous. In a field filled with talented quarterbacks, Thursday night marked the first time in the Common Draft Era that four quarterbacks were selected within the first ten picks and the third time that five or more quarterbacks were taken in the first round.

The Bills did trade into the top 10, getting the Buccaneers' No. 7 pick and using it to take Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen.

The Kansas City Chiefs were hindered without a first-round pick but still drafted six players, all on the defensive side of the ball. Expect to see him producing from the start of the season.

We're throwing out the 11 p.m. news and going all-in on the draft with Lauren Brill, Jon Doss and Derek Forrest. I am a competitive player but what I did is unacceptable so I apologize.

A little further down, the Carolina Panthers selected Maryland receiver D.J. Moore 24th overall instead of Alabama's Calvin Ridley. We thought, boy, that's going to be a heck of a move to get up that high from where they are.

The Cardinals just missed out on the top QBs in last year's draft, and now it's looking like Arizona could miss out on the top five QBs in this year's draft. One of those people, UCLA's Josh Rosen, was passed up and some of the reasoning behind it makes next to no sense. Rosen is the best quarterback in the draft.

"I knew whatever happens, happens". When it's his time to start he'll flourish, especially with their second pick, Texas A&M wide out Christian Kirk. They ended up drafting a pair of players from the University of Georgia - offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn at No. 23 and running back Sony Michel at No. 31. He's is a great college back who finds a way to get first downs and get in the endzone.

The Baltimore Ravens used the final pick of the first round (pick 32) to select dual-threat quarterback Lamar Jackson out of Louisville. So I'm really excited about being with the Jets and I couldn't be happier. It is fair to wonder if they would have even entertained the Patriots offer.

When the latest regime of decision-makers for the Cleveland Browns began to arrive last December, one thing was evident: after going 1-31 and finishing off only the second 0-16 season in National Football League history, there needed to be a culture change.
