Teams picking at the back end of the first round in the NFL Draft have been able to remain there by making shrewd selections and pouncing on players who fell to them. That is the task that awaits the Browns on April 29, when they make the 26th pick in the NFL Draft. Takk McKinley went to Atlanta in 2017 at No.
Mike Tomlin wants to be part of the post-Ben Roethlisberger era in Pittsburgh. The Steelers on Tuesday signed their longtime coach to a three-year contract extension that runs through the 2024 season. Tomlin is 145-78-1 in 14 years with the Steelers, winning one Super Bowl and going to another.
The first run on a position is now in motion as three of the past four picks take the remaining projected round 1 offensive tackles. For the Steelers, this is a pick that will get a majority of their fans throwing their coleslaw-and-fry-filled sandwiches at me playing GM Kevin Colbert as both of the top RBs were still on the board. But this is the right pick.
