Browns will listen to offers for top draft pick

The Cleveland Browns have plenty of needs across their roster, and with no clear-cut top quarterback prospect in this draft, they are willing to trade the top overall pick.

Trubisky only started 13 games at North Carolina, but National Football League teams love his build and potential.

If you wonder why the Browns are where they are - with Wentz in Philadelphia and quarterback still the No. 1 need in Cleveland - start there.

There had been speculation that Trubisky would measure closer to 6-1, potentially lowering his draft stock.

Will Mitch Trubisky be the latest young passer to fearless the hall of tarnished quarterbacks known as the Cleveland Browns locker room?

Pryor has said he wants to stay with the Browns, who took a chance on the former quarterback changing positions.

"I think that's great", Jackson said. On March 2, Coach Hue Jackson was happy to learn Trubisky is north of 6-foot-2.

"Obviously [Trubisky] is a tremendous player", Jackson said Thursday. Trubisky put together a strong 2016 season, but it is also the only starting season he has under his belt. The rumors are out in full force this week, what with the start of the NFL's annual scouting combine in Indianapolis, and one that hit on Thursday afternoon is sure to send out at least some minor shockwaves to those that closely follow the draft.

Adding Trubisky would mark a homecoming for the young passer, who played his high school football in nearby Mentor, Ohio.

- Jackson downplayed the comments that Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett made on social media earlier this offseason when he asked the Dallas Cowboys to trade up and draft him.

Trubisky is scheduled to meet with the Browns Friday night for a formal interview. "That's really important. And a lot of pressure comes with that, so you gotta be able to handle that". The Browns also need to improve their defense so it makes sense that they draft Garrett. The team is reportedly looking at a handful of players for the No. 1 pick, and Trubisky is among them. Since there is such a surplus of talent on the market, one could figure that is not a matter of if the Browns acquire a quarterback, but more specifically how they ultimately do so.

Go ahead, draft a 1-year college starter who's team lost the freaking Sun Bowl to a Stanford team without Christian McCaffrey.
