Tough break but I woke up feeling great this morning. Thank you everyone for the love and support. #GoCavs

Love underwent successful surgery Wednesday afternoon at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. He is expected to face four to six months of recovery time.

CHICAGO (AP) - Commissioner Roger Goodell says Chicago has "overdelivered" as host of the 2015 NFL draft. And the picks haven't even begun. Here are five things to watch for in the first round Thursday night:
CHARACTER: General managers, coaches, scouts and owners always insist that a player's character is a key component in who gets selected, especially in the opening round.
Now comes a real test.
The 32 teams who will go on the clock Thursday have more than the usual tough decisions ahead. The NFL comes off a year marked by domestic abuse cases that placed the names Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy in the spotlight for their off-field misbehavior, not their on-field skills. The last thing the NFL wants or needs is a slew of prospects with character problems being selected high in the draft.
Yet there are quite a few, from likely first overall choice quarterback Jameis Winston of Florida State to defensive end Shane Ray of Missouri and linebacker Randy Gregory of Nebraska.
"I'm not sure that you'll ever be able to predict how a human being is going to respond or react," Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said. "That's one of the things that makes the draft unique. As scientific as we try to make it, you're still dealing with human beings and what motivations they have, where they are in their life, how mature they are. Some guys that had problems in their college years grow up and mature and they become great people, great citizens, great husbands and great players. Some don't.
