They just became millionaires and get to share the experience with their families. "For example, you could have made a lot of money previous year if you had gone to Vegas and put a prop bet down that everyone in the draft is going to have to use the words, 'gas mask bong, ' when talking about a first round pick". With all of the picks in, let's take a look at which teams have made the best decisions during this draft.

Surely, they came out for the festival that marked a return of the draft to the city that hosted the NFL's first draft in 1936, and hadn't done so since 1961. Doing so will be a bannable offense. He has the potential to be a beast in short-yardage situations and should provide very good value for a Washington team that had a strong draft.

Teams have seven minutes to make their selections in Round 2, five minutes for Rounds 3-6 and four minutes for Round 7. We see what a team does and instantly love it or hate it.

Oh, and the event is taking place in a giant outdoor theater live from the "Rocky steps" at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

We had another situation where a team traded down a single spot, akin to what the San Francisco 49ers did with the Chicago Bears at the top of the first round.

The 49ers have a sizable chunk of picks to close out the draft.

There's no doubt that the opening round of the 2017 NFL Draft contained some dramatic trades, surprise picks, and overall just an insane amount of intrigue. Nazair, who was the 102nd overall pick by the Seattle Seahawks, followed North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who was the second pick on Thursday night. Credit to the Browns for not reaching for a quarterback and going for the best player in the draft, who will surely contribute immediately.

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.

Immediately after that, it was the Buffalo Bills who moved up, acquiring No. 37 and No. 149 overall in exchange for No. 44 and No 91 with the Los Angeles Rams.

- The Tennessee Titans selected Corey Davis with the No. 5 pick in Round 1, making him the highest drafted Western Michigan player in school history.

The team addressed their defensive issues early by drafting Myles Garrett with their No. 1 pick.

Marshon Lattimore, who some say is the nest CB in the draft, went to New Orleans Saints. However, the Browns traded up into the fourth round to pick No. 126 with the Denver Broncos.
