On Thursday night, the 2017 NFL Draft arrived in Philadelphia with over 70,000 spectators in attendance for the big event. Fans of the Eagles and every other NFL team were watching worldwide to see which college football prospects their teams would select. As had been anticipated, the No. 1 pick went to the Cleveland Browns, and they took consensus top prospect Myles Garrett. However, after that, things took a surprising turn in the NFL Draft when the Chicago Bears traded up from No. 3 to No. 2 with the San Francisco 49ers to select QB Mitch Trubisky.

Draft picks #2 through #5

As mentioned, Chicago shocked the football world with their choice of UNC's Mitch Trubisky at No.

2 after a trade with the 49ers. Trubisky had been heralded as the best QB available in the draft class, but nobody expected his name to be called so high on the board. Not even Chicago Bears fans, but the future will tell his story for sure.

After moving down a spot to No. 3 the San Fransisco 49ers selected Solomon Thomas, a player that many analysts thought Chicago might snag when they moved up. Talented running back Leonard Fournette was taken fourth overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars to add to their roster. At No. 5, the Tennessee Titans opted for wide receiver Corey Davis from Western Michigan with their pick.

Picks #6 through #10

Coming off the NFL Draft board at the No. 6 spot was LSU's Jamal Adams for the New York Jets.

Some analysts called Adams the second-most talented player in this draft behind Myles Garrett. For the seventh pick, Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams went to the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Carolina Panthers had the No. 8 pick in the draft and picked up running back Christian McCaffrey from Stanford.

He'll now join skilled quarterback Cam Newton as this team that was in the Super Bowl just a few seasons ago looks to get back into the playoff mix.

For the ninth pick, the Cincinnati Bengals went with wide receiver John Ross out of Washington. In another surprising pick, the No. 10 selection was Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes who will join the Kansas City Chiefs.

Does this mean he'll be an understudy for Alex Smith, or could the longtime Chiefs QB be on the move soon?
