CLEVELAND - The excitement of a new season filled the air in Berea on Friday for Browns Rookie Minicamp. Close to 45 players took the field, but all eyes were on the 10 draftees. Everyone wants to know how this 2017 rookie class can help turn things around for the team and also, how the players feel they can individually make an impact.
"I'm going to be a playmaker, no matter where they put me at or what kind of plays they have me do," No. 1 overall draft pick Myles Garrett said. "I know they're going to put me in the best position to make plays and I'm not really bothered. They're going to blitz me, they're going to let me go and wreak havoc and I'm excited about it."
First round pick David Njoku already made a fun rookie mistake. He asked veteran tackle, Joe Thomas, if he was a coach. In his defense, he said Thomas wasn't wearing a name tag and said being here's going to be a lot of fun. The rookies will continue orientation and minicamp on Saturday.
