NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports some people with the Browns organization like Myles Garrett, some like Trubisky.
The Cleveland Browns, owners of the No. 1 overall pick heading into the 2017 NFL Draft, reportedly are split about whether to draft Myles Garrett or Mitch Trubisky. While it is common for teams to reach for quarterbacks early in the draft, Trubisky would be a reach unheard of in recent years.
Climbing to the second or third overall pick would probably cost the Browns the 12th and 33rd picks, their second first-round pick and the first pick in the second round. The Browns' decision appears to be between defensive end?
Baltimore RavensThe Ravens' most significant offseason move so far involved a player they kept, not one they added.
At the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine, Garrett shined in all of the drills, both on and off the field. We also make predictions on what we think the Browns will do. If they go QB at No. 12, the Browns should then be heavily in play for someone such as Ole Miss' Evan Engram at No. 33.
- The Browns, after their 1-15 season, are poised to draft a quarterback in an effort to - as head coach Hue Jackson said at the NFL's Annual Meeting last month - constantly improve the room. It even makes sense to throw in a fourth- or fifth-round pick next year if that's what it takes. Instead, the Giants went with a cornerback and didn't take a single offensive lineman at any point in the draft, something that might change this year. That is evident when you peruse ESPN.com, which asked its NFL Nation reporters to select the biggest draft bust for each of the league's 32 teams. San Francisco has visited with Deshaun Watson and fast-rising Texas Tech signal-caller Patrick Mahomes.
With the way the Browns are heading defensively, too, he fits perfectly.
But if the Browns love a quarterback, they could shock the world. Number one, you're basically admitting you made a big mistake taking a quarterback in the second round past year. Yet, that's the player Cleveland would be drafting if it passed on Garrett for Trubisky.
