NFL Draft 2017 is practically here, and now it is time to find out which rookies go where. The Cleveland Browns own the first overall pick and the overwhelming favorite to be selected is Myles Garrett of Texas A&M.

This is unless something a sudden twist of fate happens with some mediums alleging that the Browns will be picking quarterback Mitchell Trubisky over Garrett. The logic behind it is simple – Cleveland is not comfortable with its current players.

The case of the quarterback position

The Browns do have Cody Kessler, Brock Osweiler and Kevin Hogan are the current quarterbacks on the roster, but Cleveland seems to want added insurance.

Kessler showed promise which Osweiler is out to prove the Houston Texans made a huge mistake giving up on him.

The bottom line, the current quarterbacks, may not pan out and Cleveland wants to add another name to the list. After the first overall pick, they select again at no. 12. If they end up picking Garrett, Trubisky could be chosen by other teams in need of a quarterback as well.

The San Francisco 49ers, Chicago Bears, Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Jets will be looking for a quarterback, all likely having Trubisky on their radar. Aside from the Notre Dame standout, other names expected to go early are DeShone Kizer and DeShaun Watson.

Browns need to move up the ladder

Aside from the teams mentioned, other ones are expected to pay more attention to other positions.

But as one can see, the Browns chances of getting a quarterback are good as gone after the Jets (6th selection).

So if the Browns want to get a quarterback, their best bet is to move one notch at least over New York. Sitting there are the Tennessee Titans who already have a quarterback in Marcus Mariota.

Instead, the Titans may be looking to get a defensive end which is abundant in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Hence, the Browns could try and pitch a deal to the Titans to get the no. 5. With only four big quarterback names, they have a better chance of securing that need. It all depends on how the two sides negotiate, something that may include added compensation or future picks.

But would a trade be worth it? Aside from Garrett, the 2017 NFL Draft class isn’t exactly loaded. If not through the pool, they could always dig into the free agent market. Colin Kaepernick and Jay Cutler are still available. Both are still waiting on calls so the Browns could at least gamble on some NFL vets already armed with experience.
