Sean Payton said the Saints had CB Marshon Lattimore ranked as their No. 3 or 4 prospect. When he fell to No. 11, the reaction in the room was "outstanding." The Saints even considered trading up for him before their patience paid off.

The Browns ended the first night with three players after a trade down with Houston and a trade up with Green Bay. They added defensive end Myles Garrett with the first overall pick, then moved down to 25th to take safety Jabrill Peppers. They then moved up from the first pick in the second round to take tight end David Njoku from Miami.

VP Sashi Brown threw cold water on the possibility that the Browns called the Redskins about trading for Kirk Cousins. "Bad reporting is all I would say," Brown said.

Hue Jackson wanted to bolster the tight end spot, and the Browns did it when they took David Njoku from Miami with the 29th pick. Njoku is a big guy who can run and create mismatches against linebackers and safeties in the passing game.

TE David Njoku can be used as a matchup player in Hue Jackson's offense. He has the size to create leverage versus safeties plus the open field ability (and speed) to produce after the catch. Middle of the field throws and red zone targets.

Spoke with a personnel director before the draft who said this of new Browns draft choice David Njoku: "He is a freak athlete but has very inconsistent hands and is, to me, the bust of the tight end group." We shall see.

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

I thought the Browns should've taken TE David Njoku instead of Michigan S Jabrill Peppers earlier in the first round, but they get both players by trading back into the first round to select Njoku. He is loaded with potential and has a chance to be a big-play threat up the seam. Now Cleveland needs to find QB to throw Njoku the ball.

Reggie McKenzie said the Raiders did "miles and miles of research" on Gareon Conley, who has been accused of rape. "We did our due diligence and our...reports on Mr. Conley and we feel very good about him joining the team and being a good teammate."

Peppers gets picked by Browns (0:34)

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

If I was Cleveland, I would've taken TE David Njoku instead of S Jabrill Peppers. They need to accumulate more weapons for when the finally do draft a quarterback, and Njoku has a ton of upside. I'm not as high on Peppers as others. I think it will take time to get first-round value out of him as a defender.
