For the fourth time in five years, the first overall pick in the NFL draft is a quarterback. This time, unsurprisingly, it was Kyler Murray, who many had expected was the man Kliff Kingsbury wanted to lead his offense instead of Josh Rosen. As for the other quarterbacks off the board in Round 1? That was a bit more surprising. The Giants, despite having both the sixth and 17th pick, took Daniel Jones at No. 6, much earlier than most anticipated. Joining Jones in the NFC East is Dwayne Haskins. There was buzz that the Redskins would trade up to grab the Ohio State QB. Instead, he fell to No. 15 and Washington didn’t even have to move to get him.

In non-quarterback news, after picks 2 and 3 went as expected — Nick Bosa and Quinnen Williams to the 49ers and Jets, respectively — the biggest surprise of the top-five was Oakland’s selection of Clemson DE Clelin Ferrell at No.4.
