Browns have zeroed in on choice with No. 1 draft pick

The Cleveland Browns now own the number one pick, and Cleveland taking a quarterback could be a possibility. Even a year ago, the Cowboys shocked the football world by taking linebacker Jaylon Smith out of Notre Dame in the second round, knowing he would not play at all his rookie season after suffering a torn ACL in his final collegiate game, the 2016 Fiesta Bowl. Below them are the Jets, who need a quarterback but are said to not be interested in Trubisky. He struggled with consistency on the field and was surrounded by controversy off. They had the cap space and took on Osweiler's $16 million this season to acquire the Texans second- round pick for 2018.

Since 2010, only one player who was in Garrett or Fournette's position coming out of high school was a top-10 draft pick. Previous year in 2016 they selected Cody Kessler in the third round.

According to Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot, the Browns seem set on taking Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett with the No. 1 pick after some alleged division within the franchise.

The 2017 NFL Draft is just a week away and the Cleveland Browns will have the first overall pick.

The real question though is who they take 12th overall. However, is the team?

McCaffery led the nation in all-purpose yards in both of his last two years, notably breaking Barry Sanders' record for most yards in a season. Some things take time. The Browns' only win came on December 24 past year against the now-Los Angeles Chargers. They also have Brock Osweiler to add to the mix.

If I were an National Football League general manager and my team had to suit up and play a game this weekend, I'd want Trubisky out on the field at quarterback.

The 12th pick was acquired from the Eagles prior to the 2016 draft. OSU Safety Malik Hooker would make a great addition to the team, but it will depend on if he is still available. Chicago could also use wide receivers, a tight end, and a tackle, but who's counting. As a run defender, he may never get to the level of a Von Miller or a Khalil Mack, but he can affect the quarterback and his improvement in the run game should have him playing at a reasonable level if used in the right capacity.

Cleveland has done a nice job this offseason bringing in pieces, especially along the offensive line.

On Wednesday at their pre-draft press conference, executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown and vice president of player personnel Andrew Berry hit on one of the biggest on multiple occasions. Last year, they gave the Browns a 2016 third-rounder and a 2017 second-rounder to move up from No. 15 to No. 8. However, overlooked Tre'Davious White out of LSU, though slender in frame, could be a good corner as well as an addition to special teams. If the Browns leapfrog the competition to get Trubisky, they may send other teams interested in Trubisky into a scramble.
