Walt you can't give the Browns a Millen grade for taking a guy that will play for them immediately with no off field issues when they are years away from contending. Apparently a lot of teams are concerned about that knee. So far we're at 5 (Where I think he stops) but still. Microfracture has not done well in the NFL regardless of talent (Clowney)
THIS IS FOR ROUND 2, I COPIED ROUND ONE AND GRADED EVERY PICK A LETTER GRADE.
There are many shockers on day one of the 2016 NFL Draft featuring: Chargers picking Joey Bosa over projected Laremy Tunsil, DeForest Buckner or Jalen Ramsey. The Cowboys taking Ezekiel Elliott when they have Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden, Laremy Ronnie Stanley AND Jack Conklin being taken before Laremy Tunsil (He slid all the way to 13). The Bears trading up to grab Leonard Floyd, the Giants taking Eli Apple so early making that 3 Ohio State Buckeyes in the top 10, the Packers making a reach on projected 2-3 round pick Kenny Clark, the Cardinals taking a chance on Robert Nkemdiche and finally the 49ers trading back into the first for Joshua Garnett.

By the way, the fourth-annual Walter/Joker Annual Challenge is on, as I'll be competing with the Joker's College Picks. We each pick five games and see who does the best each week.
Central Florida at BYU Line: BYU by 3. Friday, 8:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games; I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
BYU was just blown out, but I like them to bounce back as a weeknight home favorite.
College Football Pick: BYU -3 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Notre Dame at Pittsburgh Line: Notre Dame by 6.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
Notre Dame was always a good team; it just lost a fluke game to underrated South Florida and then was flat at Michigan. The Irish will continue to rebound.
College Football Pick: Notre Dame -6.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Florida State at Clemson Line: Clemson by 2. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
Florida State was billed as the next big thing, but suffered a home loss to Oklahoma. I don't think the Seminoles will be able to bounce back from that this week.
College Football Pick: Clemson -2 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Louisiana-Lafayette at Florida International Line: Florida International by 17. Saturday, 6:00 p.m.
This may seem like a totally random game, but I'm wary of teams that have been winning as underdogs and are now favored by a wide margin. This is not a good spot for Florida International.
College Football Pick: Louisiana Lafayette +17 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
Tulsa at Boise State Line: Boise State by 28.5. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Boise State's on a mission - and I'm going along for the ride.
College Football Pick: Boise State -28.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
