The New England Patriots visited the White House to celebrate their fifth Super Bowl title on Wednesday.
Well, at least most of the team did.
Cleveland Browns – Selecting Myles Garrett with the first pick was an awesome move, but Cleveland’s selections of Jabrill Peppers and David Njoku were more controversial. Cleveland needed a safety, but is Peppers a good fit? And while Njoku looks like a solid player, the Browns’ decision to trade back up into the first round for a tight end seems a bit iffy.
Dallas Cowboys – The Cowboys selected Michigan defensive end Taco Charlton with the No. 27 pick. The Michigan product is considered a Day 1 starter who can use his size and speed to wreak havoc on quarterbacks.
We can’t know every interaction between NFL front offices. But there’s nothing approaching a concrete indication that anyone else was going to give Lynch what he wanted for the second overall pick.

They drafted Stanford lineman Solomon Thomas with the very next San Jose Sharks Cheap Jerseys pick, following weeks of mock drafting and reporting that suggested they might take Thomas at No. 2.
For this to be a good idea for Chicago, Trubisky has to be a good, starting NFL quarterback. Maybe he will be, but if he’s not, this could sting for years.
