The first round of the NFL draft is in the books, in surprisingly quick fashion. It took teams about three hours to power their way through the first round, despite a bevy of trades that moved them up and down the draft board like yo-yos. Very few real surprises emerged in the first round, but it's still worth asking just how each team will make use of its newest hope for the future?

More success?

Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III will both try to turn around losing franchises in their first year in the league.


Better career?

Ryan Tannehill and Brandon Weeden were both small surprises in the No. 8 and No. 22 spots, but both the Dolphins and Browns seemed satisfied with their choices.


McCoy or Weeden?

The Browns told Colt McCoy they wouldn't draft a quarterback, but when the opportunity to take Weeden presented itself, they decided to go in another direction.


Blackmon or Richardson?

The Browns and Jaguars both traded up in order to take the consensus best running back and wide receiver in the draft.
