No, Johnny, no: Browns sure top pick Mayfield is no Manziel

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will open the 2018 NFL Draft on Thursday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington Texas

By the numbers: Even with NFL Network's coverage simulcast on FOX-32, ESPN dominated local household ratings in the Chicago market.

The early going was, as projected, quarterback heavy. Cleveland hopes to see him continue to be a 1,000-yard back after using one of its picks on him.

Last week, Dorsey defended Mayfield's character and called him "a pleasant fella". A little suspense goes a long way when it comes to something that has been talked about to death already.

The Browns' selection of Mayfield was a surprise in a draft in which three taller quarterbacks were available, but the Browns touted his competitiveness, accuracy, skills as a leader and the fact he had worked for everything he had earned.

Quarterbacks were not the only ones making history during the first round. The choice will instantly excite the Big Apple fan base at the prospect of teaming the rookie with Odell Beckham Jr and upcoming tight end Evan Engram.

This doesn't have as much to do with the players as much as it does what happened during the draft past year - the Bills traded away the 10th pick and the opportunity to draft Deshaun Watson or Patrick Mahomes. This candor momentarily stunned Eisen. He said if he weren't now so focused on becoming an elite quarterback, he might very well try out for the Texas Rangers. "Sometimes the direct answer is the best".

For the second day in a row a Georgia running back has been picked in the 2018 NFL Draft. "He's a guy that I could sit behind and learn from."He is the Heisman Trophy victor and now has another accolade to match.* Quarterback-hungry teamsThe Browns needed a quarterback and got one". I don't take out the time for them. Goodell's robotic reading to announce each draft pick made it seem he was conscious the words might someday become sound bites in a "30 for 30" documentary. Cleveland has started 28 QBs since 1999.

Ohio State's Denzel Ward is officially moving on to the pros, as the cornerback was taken by his hometown team, the Cleveland Browns, in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft on Thursday night.

With talent like corner Josh Jackson, rusher Derrius Guice and guard Will Hernandez still on the board, tonight's second round is likely to be just as fascinating. He goes from a former walk-on to No. 1 overall.
