    2017 NFL Mock Draft: Defense rules top five, Steelers target small-school player

    The Cleveland Browns have a reputation for making impulsive, ultimately terrible decisions when it comes to drafting franchise quarterbacks. For different reasons, Brady Quinn, Brandon Weeden and Johnny Manziel didn’t work out, and while the team remains in the market for a passer, they’d be much better off taking Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett with the first-overall pick.

    Over at the official team site, Detroit Lions senior writer Tim Twentyman posted his list of five young Lions to watch over the offseason. Each could play a big role this year, or maybe not even make the team, depending on how well they do this offseason. Alex Carter might draw more eye rolls than eyeballs; he’s one of a long string of just-not-good-enough cornerbacks drafted by former general manager (and NFL cornerback) Martin Mayhew. As Twentyman graciously notes, Carter lost his entire rookie season to injury, then failed to make the 53-man roster last September. Signed to the practice squad and activated late in the year, Carter dressed for just one game in 2016. “It’s safe to say,” Twentyman
