REPORT: Browns Still Undecided About Their Top Pick, Considering a Quarterback

Chicago Bears

Well, with barely two weeks left before the NFL Draft, this could certainly throw things for a loop:

Everyone under the sun in convinced that, in a draft that features excellent depth but is shallow in certainty at the top, there is one guy who is the clear best prospect in the draft: Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett. He has been a presumed top pick for the Cleveland Browns since the very beginning of this draft season.

And yet, there is Adam Schefter’s report. I am still of the mind that, even if the Browns do the unthinkable and select someone other than Garrett, he will not fall past the San Francisco 49ers at pick number two. If he did, then the Chicago Bears – whatever their need – would almost certainly be thrilled to pop Garrett at three.

Either way, the Bears do not seem enamored with any of the top available quarterback options in this draft, and thus seem very unlikely to take one with their first round pick. So, if the Browns do take a quarterback like Mitchell Trubisky, that can only help by leaving other options available to the Bears that they are interested in picking. For example, if the Bears took Trubisky, that would guarantee the Bears would at least have the option of selecting Garrett or LSU safety Jamal Adams, recently popping up in that discussion as the best player in the draft.

All that said, are the Browns actually undecided? Or is this simply the kind of jockeying we see every year before the draft?
