49ers won the NFL Draft's first day

It made me cherish it and not take it for granted. Washington was hurt by a mediocre run game in 2016, and while Perine won't be mistaken for the most explosive player in the draft, he's a good, solid, sturdy back who isn't really elite in any one aspect but does numerous things very well. "That's why I'm surprised to hear my name called because we didn't have a lot of contact".

ESPN, which is broadcasting its 38th consecutive National Football League draft, will have close to 500 player highlight packages, more than 30 player live shots, 22 cameras, red carpet interviews, and analysts like Mel Kiper Jr., Jon Gruden, Adam Schefter and Suzy Kolber all joining Wingo. There are plenty of talented players remaining going into Day 2, which includes the second and third rounds.

Among the players still available are Florida State running back Dalvin Cook, Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer, Alabama offensive lineman Cam Robinson, Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon, and UConn defensive back Obi Melifonwu.

Tennessee won nine games last season with a meat-and-potatoes roster.

That makes five of the first 64 picks. That didn't stop the Chicago Bears, Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans from jumping up in the draft to take one.

What big storylines should you anticipate on Friday? Cleveland fans may clamor for some type of reward for their patience with these players by this time next year, when the Browns again will be working with a war chest of early selections-and again should be picking high.

Say what you want about the Browns not getting a quarterback, but in my opinion, the team didn't chase the draft in this first round.

It was an unorthodox draft season for Bill Belichick, but he used his picks on players who can contribute right away to a roster that will be hard for rookies to crack, especially on offense.

The first round could see a slew of players from the nation's top college programs get selected. What players the Browns did pick up in the draft look to be building blocks for a better future.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie sounded confident the situation will be resolved. Scooping up TCU outside linebacker Josh Carraway, Villanova offensive tackle Brad Seaton and California running back Khalfani Muhammad in the final stage of the draft is an extremely strong use of picks by Tennessee. The Titans rounded out the top five with Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis. Then later in the night, the New York Giants potentially picked up Eli Manning's successor.

Stanford's Christian McCaffery shot up the draft boards and landed with the Carolina Panthers at No.8.
