Cody Kessler To Browns!

KESSLER.SACK.HOLIDAYOh my. Cody Kessler in the third round? This is an amazing pick. And I covered Browns coach Hue Jackson when he was a heavily criticized offensive coordinator at USC. Great pick, Hue!  He always acted like he knew more than everyone else. He better be one great evaluator with this pick.

At least it won’t turn out to be as much of a bomb for the Browns as Johnny Manziel.

Su’a Cravens To Redskins

CRAVENS.2USC linebacker Su’a Cravens is taken by the Washington Redskins with the 53rd pick of the second round of the NFL draft.

NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock: “He’s a really good matchup with pass-catching tight ends. This guy does a lot of jobs. They asked him to do a bunch of stuff. They asked him to tackle in the run game. They asked him to match up in the pass game. They asked him to play special teams. That’s a really solid 2nd-round pick.”

And here is a photo gallery of Cravens during his college career.

NFL Draft Talk

UCLA linebacker Myles Jack has still not been selected through 27 picks. No mock drafts had him this low. Yes, I’m aware of the knee concerns. But he’s probably a pretty good pick for someone now, right? I’m surprised Pete Carroll didn’t take a chance on him.

Jared Goff to the Rams with the No. 1 pick. I’ll defer to the NFL but a year ago who was predicting he was the No. 1 pick overall? And let’s remember Max Browne was the No. 1 QB of Goff’s recruiting class. That’s good motivation for Browne.
