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

Bears NFL Mock Draft rundown: April 14, 2017

The team has clearly stated that it won't be trading for a veteran quarterback between now and the end of the draft. Trubisky won't be ready to start immediately, but the Browns are willing to give him time to develop.

Cleveland's front office and coaching staff surely feel the team's franchise quarterback is not now on their roster, but know whichever quarterback prospect they select at the end of the month will need time to develop.

- 2014 Dominique Easley (No. 29 overall) was in the defensive line rotation from Day 1. He struggled with consistency on the field and was surrounded by controversy off.

The Browns now have Osweiler and second-year quarterbacks Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan under contract for the 2017 season, but are expected to add a quarterback to their roster in the early rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft.

"Every draft I've been in I've always wanted to acquire more picks", he said. The Patriots maintained they wanted to keep Garoppolo, who's entering the previous year of his rookie contract, but director of player personnel Nick Carserio left the door slightly ajar Tuesday.

A standout at St. Paul's in Mobile and Alabama, McCarron broke into the National Football League under Cleveland coach Hue Jackson, who was the Bengals' offensive coordinator at the time.

The Cleveland Browns took the draft by storm a year ago by swapping the second-overall pick to the Philadelphia Eagles for a bushel of future selections.

"The book out there is that there's Garrett, and then there's about 15 other players who could be No. 2 on 32 draft boards", writes King.

- The Browns have an idea who they will take with the No. 1 pick but aren't telling anyone outside of their inner circle. But to parrot a phrase that has been uttered far too much in the past few months, if there is a player the Browns want at No. 6 they should "do whatever it takes" to get him. However, is the team? With this years draft being dubbed a developmental year for quarterbacks the Browns are again plagued with the question, do we reach for a signal caller or do we take best player available. But like I said a year ago, we're open for business and willing to have discussions. Some things take time.

When Osweiler arrived in Houston, he was viewed as the franchise quarterback that could finally lead the Texans to a Super Bowl or an AFC Championship Game. Garrett is big, fast and strong, and he has the fiery attitude the Browns need to change the defense.

Brown also suggested that Cleveland won't trade down after dealing the No. 2 overall pick in 2016.

Back to the Browns. Offensive Lineman Cam Robinson out of Alabama could help the tackle issues.

No college will have more prospects attending than LSU with running back Leonard Fournette, safety Jamal Adams and cornerback Tre'Davious White.

It is unclear what the Browns will do: after all they are the Cleveland Browns.
