Browns zero in on No. 1 pick, trade for veteran QB unlikely

VOTE The Bears 2017 NFL Draft hat is here but is it worth your money

According to their report, sources say that the Browns and Jets are talking about a trade that would have the Browns moving up from the 12th pick to the Jets' selection at No. 6 in order to take a quarterback with Trubisky the primary target.

Sashi Brown, the team's vice president of football operations, said Wednesday that the Browns "feel really good about drafting No. 1".

Or will it be Myles Garrett, the defensive end out of Texas A&M University, who recorded 7.5 sacks and 33 tackles, along with two passes defended a year ago for the Red Raiders? "He is a positive young man who has some ability and talent", Brown said, via Cleveland's team website. But the likeliest scenario is that the Browns stick with Garrett, leaving the next 31 picks in the draft open for business. They have five of the first 65 picks - first, 12th, 33rd, 52nd and 65th. I fully expect quite a few trades as their chess match unfolds, but here is my six round (they don't have a seventh), Browns draft to give you a little insight on what they might do.

"Could we in theory? Yes". However, if the Browns stand pat at 12 and Trubisky goes off the board early, they may once again wheel and deal picks to move to a position they like better.

Patriots hit back at New York Times over White House tweet
Why? UPDATE: Patriots say # of players was smaller this year than 2015 (34 vs. 50) but total delegation was roughly the same. While it isn't clear why Brady was not present, he also did not attend the White House visit in 2015.

Although Brown's words sounded definite, it's expected the Browns will continue to pursue a trade involving Osweiler during the draft. Given the quality of signal-callers the Browns have had since returning to the National Football League in 1999, it wouldn't take much to add his name to the neverending list on the back of the starting quarterback jersey. Will they even keep the pick? "Certainly, I think you would like to be able to look back on as many games as you can, and it is no mystery that Mitch hasn't played in a lot of them".

"We do go into each draft with a plan". Brown, Berry, and DePodesta deserve another chance to get it right with their draft and free agent decisions, and Jackson deserves a shot to coach with a cupboard stocked with more talent.

Despite the morass that was 1-15 in 2016, no heads rolled in the offseason, and I had absolutely no issue with that. We don't want to get into a habit of turning two picks into one, so to speak. We can get some players that can transform our franchise, and the way we are positioned, it is to some degree the volume of players that can help us. And because if you don't draft me No. 1, I will punish your team for the next 10 to 12 years. We do have a pretty good sense, and it is important because we want to plan for us as we move forward.

The Browns were 31 of 32 franchises a year ago in total defense, so I think Garrett would also be a good fit.
