KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Chiefs general manager Brett Veach made a stress-free start to the NFL draft when he traded the No. 31 pick to the Ravens earlier this week as part of a package that landed them two-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle Orlando Brown. The trade filled their most glaring hole but it also left the Chiefs without a first-round selection. Their first pick won’t come until No. 58 overall — the 26th selection of the second round — when the draft resumes Friday night. They have another pick in the second round before waiting until Saturday to conclude the draft.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Tyler O’Neill scored on David Hale’s game-ending wild pitch in the 10th inning, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 to split their four-game series. O’Neil, the automatic runner, started on second and advanced on Andrew Knizner’s groundout. Hale bounced a curveball past catcher J.T. Realmuto, getting the loss in his first decision since the Phillies acquired him from the New York Yankees last August. Alex Reyes pitched two perfect innings. Matt Carpenter put the Cardinals ahead in the sixth with a three-run homer off Aaron Nola.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have used the first overall pick in the NFL Draft to select Trevor Lawrence. The Clemson quarterback was outstanding in his three college seasons, completing 67% of his passes for 10,098 yards, 90 touchdowns and just 17 interceptions while also rushing for 943 yards. Lawrence is widely considered the best college QB prospect since Andrew Luck nearly a decade ago and will pair with new head coach Urban Meyer as the faces of the franchise.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Quarterbacks also were taken with the second and third picks in the NFL Draft. BYU’s Zach Wilson went second to the Jets and North Dakota State’s Trey Lance headed to the 49ers at No. 3. It marks just the third time quarterbacks were taken with each of the first three picks in a draft. The Falcons used the fourth choice to land Florida tight end Kyle Pitts, and LSU wideout Ja’Marr Chase went fifth to the Bengals.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos bypassed quarterbacks Justin Fields and Mac Jones to select Alabama cornerback Pat Surtain II in the first round of the NFL draft. The surprising move comes one day after new general manager George Paton acquired veteran quarterback Teddy Bridgewater from the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick this weekend. Surtain is the second consecutive Alabama alum selected in the first round by the Broncos, who drafted wide receiver Jerry Jeudy with the 15th overall pick last year.
