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

Posted April 22, 2017

The Browns chose former Baylor University wide receiver Corey Coleman after the series of trades, while the Eagles drafted former North Dakota State University quarterback Carson Wentz. We just don't think that's a good way to do business over time. "Yes", Brown said. "But are we planning on it or is that the plan? No".

The Browns are also open to taking Clemson QB Deshaun Watson if a team like the San Francisco 49ers or Chicago Bears make a surprise selection in the first few picks.

As for the rumored compensation, the idea of the Browns giving up selections No. 52 and No. 145 is more palatable than sending No. 33 and No. 108 to NY. Will they even keep the pick? It doesn't mean that if there is a player there we might not go take a shot. "We think we're positioned to be able to do that without impacting our draft much". Doing so should yield them extra draft picks they can use later to fill more holes than they would have with just the picks they now have. Last year Brown orchestrated a total of 5 trades before or during the 2016 draft that netted the Browns an additional 6 picks between 2016-18. "We think no matter how prepared you are, there's always a lot of uncertainty in the draft".

This year the Browns could use some of that draft capital to move up for a player they covet. The latest 253-pick projection for the 2017 National Football League draft comes from CBS Sports, and there are plenty of trades and surprises across all seven rounds. A Garrett-and-Trubisky package would be considered a smashing success in Cleveland, where fans treat the event like the Super Bowl they've never gotten.

There are plenty of differences between the first pick and the 12th pick in the NFL Draft.

Dyer also told reporters that Muhammad had mentioned in his postings on Facebook that he hated white people and the government. Dyer says Muhammad went with officers to the Motel 6, where he is accused of killing unarmed security guard Carl Williams.

"Could we in theory? He is a positive young man who has some ability and talent", Brown said, via Cleveland's team website.

On one hand, there's no reason not to let Osweiler try to prove himself; they'll be paying him $16 million whether he's on the team or not (with the possibility of saving $775,000 if he signs a one-year minimum deal elsewhere after being cut). This isn't a draft where there are that many players that you would say, 'I want to go up and get him.' I just don't see it.

The Browns have spent a lot of time with Trubisky and are believed to like him ahead of the other QB prospects. "Most often, you stay put", Brown said.

The city deserves a quality franchise, and they can no longer waste time bouncing from quarterback to quarterback. "We were impressed by him". We feel really good about having effectively two draft classes through the first two rounds and sitting at No. 65, as well.
