Browns' Haden wants Garrett with No. 1 pick

21 April 2017, 03:00 | Charlene Valdez

So if the Browns' dream scenario is to come out of the first round with both Myles Garrett and Trubisky, they could take Garrett first overall and then package some of their other picks with the No. 12 pick to move back into the Top 10 and get Trubisky.

The Cleveland Browns have the right to the top pick of the 2017 NFL Draft but are torn on selecting a quarterback or the best player of the bunch.

WalterFootball.com has learned from sources that the Browns and Jets are talking about a trade that would have the Browns moving up from the 12th pick to the Jets' selection at No. 6 in order to take a quarterback. Perhaps most importantly was Hunt's evolution as a bona fide pass-catcher, as he hauled in 41 passes for 403 yards after having just 152 yards combined in his first three seasons. He ranked fifth in percentage of off-target passes (7.9), per ESPN Stats & Information data.

We'll use CBS Sports' Rob Rang's big board, so please don't argue with us about missing out on "this guy" or ranking Player X too high. Yet, they still want a younger option with more unrealized potential.

So the Browns won't be active off the bat next Thursday, but they could end up being one of the more active teams on the market when all is said and done. "The reality is in college football the number of snaps that these defensive linemen have to play on a down-in, down-out basis is usually greater than when they are going to have to play at the professional level".

Six CBS (NFL Draft Scout) analysts unanimously predicted Garrett as the first overall pick.

"There are only so few people who walk the earth who can play the quarterback position in the NFL", Browns vice president of Player Personnel Andrew Berry said.

"We expect Brock to be here", Brown said when asked if Osweiler would be on the team in training camp.

"No, I think Mitch seems to be a pretty mature kid, " he said. "This is my eighth season, I just turned 28, I'm ready to get after it".

Haden has also been re-energized by the arrival of new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who has lived up to his no-nonsense reputation already.

Wondering about a player, a past game or another issue involving the Bears? "We prepare a lot". "You've just got to accept it". Analysts say this is a weak draft for tackles, so the Browns' best bet might be to wait for roster cuts in training camp to ultimately find their starter. And there is a chance Belichick and the Browns are playing "hard to get" vs. Let us know in the comments section how you would like a two-round haul of Garrett, Trubisky, Baker, and Tabor. "We were impressed by him".
