The 2017 NFL Draft is today, and teams are making their final preparations before the first round kicks off tonight. It appears as if the first pick as already been made, as the Cleveland Browns will reportedly take Myles Garrett No. 1 overall. Here are all the latest 2017 NFL Draft rumors and news that you need to know from around the league.
Broncos looking to trade up
There is expected to be plenty of movement in tonight's draft based on which players slide, and the Denver Broncos are already looking to trade up in the first round, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Cowboys interested in Gareon Conley
Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley has found himself at the center of a rape investigation, which is causing his draft stock to plummet. While many expect him to fall several rounds, the Dallas Cowboys are interested in him with the No. 28 overall pick, according to USA Today's Tom Pelissero.

Conley had 26 tackles with four interceptions and eight pass breakups last season.
John Ross' stock dropping
Another player whose draft stock is falling is Washington wide receiver John Ross due to injury concerns, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
However, the medical report on Ross has scared teams as they've set up their boards for the 2017 NFL Draft in Philadelphia, which kicks off at 8 p.m. ET Thursday.
There are a handful of boards he is off, sources say. Other teams wonder if he'll fall into the late-first round or early second round because of his injury history.
He missed the 2015 season with an ACL and meniscus repair and had microfracture surgery the previous year. He also underwent labrum surgery this past March.
One source close to Ross said he has had no problems with his knees and while the history might scare teams, "there is nothing new that has showed up." Some teams are afraid, other teams are OK with it.
Ross had 81 catches for 1,150 yards and 17 touchdowns this past season.Back to the NFL Newsfeed
