TMZ reported that Randy Gregory has failed another NFL drug test. When teams ignored off-field concerns and drafted a troubled player in this week’s NFL draft, they were gambling. The Dallas Cowboys gambled on defensive end Randy Gregory with a second round pick in 2015, and it appears they’ll get
There was a moment during the NFL draft when cameras cut to Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly on his living room couch, slumped over to the side, the epitome of exhaustion and disappointment. Chad Kelly's draft party looks pretty lit if you ask us. Kelly fell hard in the draft and had to wait until
The Cleveland Browns, like every other team in the NFL draft, have to weigh a player’s talent against ugly off-field concerns.

Some NFL draftees get to walk across the stage as flash bulbs pop, grab a hat of their new team and bro hug commissioner Roger Goodell. Other players get their selection announced by an orangutan. The NFL has to spruce up the third day of the draft, so it has some picks announced in fun ways.
Michigan tight end Jake Butt presumably would have rather gotten out of the Orange Bowl healthy and been drafted in the first couple rounds of the NFL draft.

Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon got most of the negative attention leading up to the draft, but OU teammate Dede Westbrook has a list of red flags that pushed him even further down the draft (what exactly is Bob Stoops doing down there in Norman?). The Jacksonville Jaguars took Westbrook early in the
There were three colossal trades in the first round of the NFL draft. All of them had a similar theme: One team traded up for a quarterback, paying a ton to do so, and the team trading down got the best of the deal. The Browns took advantage of the madness, getting maximum value to move down from the

Mitchell Trubisky can take heart in this trip down memory lane: Philadelphia Eagles fans once booed the draft pick of Donovan McNabb. Chicago Bears fans haven’t exactly embraced Trubisky, the North Carolina quarterback.
The Bengals are no strangers to collecting players who come into the league with red flags. Vontaze Burfict and Adam Jones come to mind. The Bengals took Mixon in the second round. In July 2014, Mixon punched Amelia Molitor in the face and Oklahoma suspended him for the season.
Of all the shirts East Carolina receiver Zay Jones could have picked out for Day Two of the NFL draft, he picked one with a picture of the infamous O.J.

Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster had a rocky road in the months leading up to the draft, and he felt the consequences on Thursday night.

Brock Osweiler isn’t on the Houston Texans‘ roster anymore, but the Texans are still paying for his horrendous contract last season. The Texans gave Osweiler a four-year deal worth $18 million a year a year ago. Osweiler was so bad, the Texans basically gave the Cleveland Browns a second-round pick
The top of the NFL draft had a theme: Offense, offense, offense. There might have been some surprise when Corey Davis went fifth overall to the Tennessee Titans.

The Cleveland Browns aren’t going to shock anyone with the first pick, according to a report on Thursday afternoon.
