NFL Draft: Cleveland Browns considering Mitchell Trubisky at No. 1, per report

The Cleveland Browns have all but made up their minds who they are taking No. 1 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, which starts Thursday night.

The question, though, is are their minds made up for Myles Garrett or Mitchell Trubisky? 

What is clear is that they really like former North Carolina signal-caller Trubisky as a quarterback.

Sources told Mary Kay Cabot at Cleveland.com the front office of Paul DePodesta and Sashi Brown want to employ a similar strategy to what Jimmy Johnson and the Dallas Cowboys did in the early 1990s by taking Troy Aikman, going 1-15 their first season with him, but then turning in three Super Bowl victories in four years with the former UCLA quarterback at the helm.

Whose opinion will win out? Browns head coach Hue Jackson and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams appear to want to draft Garrett No. 1, while DePodesta and Brown may favor Trubisky.

The Browns also may be considering taking Trubisky because it appears the 49ers are eyeing him with the the No. 2 overall pick. San Francisco has a private workout set up with the former Tar Heel.

Other teams may also like him in the top 10, with some suggesting the Bills may trade up to get him. That leaves the Browns wondering if Trubisky will be available when they pick again at No. 12. 

But can the Browns pass on the almost sure-fire Garrett at No. 1? And if they take Garrett and miss out on Trubisky, will they again be called out for passing on a QB of the future?

The Browns have a lot to think about over the next six days.
