Levack’s Top Head Scratching Moments From Round One Of The Draft [VIDEO]
5) The Raiders taking Ohio State Corner Back, Gareon Conley. Conley is a fine player some would say top ten in this year’s draft but he is currently facing rape allegations in Cleveland. The Raiders believe he is innocent but Reggie McKenzie seems to always pick “Flawed players” 3 of his 5 first round picks as Raiders GM were DJ Hayden…who basically died on a football field, Safety Karl Joseph who missed his entire Senior year with a knee injury and now Conley that could face jail time.
4) The Browns didn’t screw up! Myles Garrett one and with the 12th pick the Browns traded back to 25 with the Texans where they got Michigan safety Jabrill Peppers and a 2018 first round pick. They weren’t done either! They then gave up a 4th round pick to swap the 1st pick in the second round for the 29th pick in the first round with the Packers…with which they selected Miami TE David Njoku.
3) The Alabama water fall! Not one Bama player was picked until CB Marlon Humphrey 16 to the Ravens. Meaning Jonathan Allen, Rueben Foster AND OJ Howard were still on the board…just to name a few. Despite Allen and Howard being ranked in many people’s top 5.
2) The New York Giants not trading up to get OJ Howard? Howard has been a big threat on the big stage for Alabama and speaking of big he’s 6’6 251 pounds and blocks in Bama’s ground attack. Instead the Giants stayed at 23 and took Ole Miss TE Evan Engram 6’3 230 who says he is interested in blocking. When Howard fell all the way down to 18 with the Titans the Giants should of made a move.
1) Chicago Bears trading from 3 to 2 to get Mitchell Trubisky? Look I know this is a rough year to draft a QB and for some reason Mitch Trubisky went from the inexperienced starter of 13 games at North Carolina…A BASKETBALL school to draft darling but the Bears seemed smart with signing backup Mike Glennon from Tampa Bay instead of wasting a pick on the slim pickings QB this year. BUT NOOOOO They give up the 3rd pick, a 3rd and 4th rounder this year and a 3rd rounder next year. Oh by the way you still have to pay Glennon 18.5 million dollars.
