After three rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft, we’ve had a lot of surprises and a ridiculous amount of trades. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, there were 14 trades on Day Two, the most ever since the Draft moved to its current three day format in 2012.

The Browns were very active on Day Two, they held two of the first three picks in the second round. With the first pick in the second round, the Browns selected Offensive Lineman Austin Corbett out of Nevada. Corbett stands 6’4″ and weighs 307 pounds. He is listed as both a tackle and a guard, and can play any position along the offensive line. With the 35th pick in the draft, the Browns got their Running Back of the future. They selected Georgia’s Nick Chubb.

With their final pick of the night at #67, which is the third pick of the third round, the Browns selected Defensive End Chad Thomas out of Miami. Thomas is an incredible musician who can play nine instruments and also produced the opening song on Rick Ross’ album “Rather You Than Me.”

The Cincinnati Bengals also made three picks on the evening, and all of them were very good picks in my opinion. They selected Wake Forest Safety Jessie Bates III with the 54th overall pick. The final picks of the night were #77 and #78, in which they selected Sam Hubbard, Defensive End out of Ohio State, and Malik Jefferson, Linebacker out of Texas.

There were three more Ohio State Buckeyes selected yesterday, and more are expected to be taken off the board today. Tyquan Lewis was picked with the final pick of the second round of the draft by the Indianapolis Colts. The Miami Dolphins soon followed by selecting Linebacker Jerome Baker Jr. Baker will now play alongside Raekwon McMillan, his fellow Linebacker at Ohio State. Sam Hubbard to the Bengals was the final Buckeye drafted on Day Two.

Rounds 4-7 wrap up the 2018 NFL Draft today, coverage begins at noon on FOX, ESPN, and NFL Network. There is still plenty to be excited about, who will be “Mr. Irrelevant”, and where will the remaining Buckeyes be drafted? Jamarco Jones, Jalyn Holmes, and J.T. Barrett are still on the board.
