Browns Won't Draft This QB With No. 1 Overall Pick


Notre Dame's Quenton Nelson is a surefire stud and the favorite to be the Bears' pick among mock drafters.

Looking at the roster and combining that with either a mock draft or the actual draft results, the players on the roster are added because they best suit the team now and for the long-term in the GM's eyes. With the Buffalo Bills reportedly unlikely to move up to No. 2, the Giants may be best suited making this pick. General manager Brandon Beane is in his true "rookie" season with the Bills and he and his staff have been preparing for this draft since he assembled his team last May.

There's no clear-cut, surefire top pick quarterback in this year's draft because all of the prime prospects have at least one key drawback.

USC's Sam Darnold also is widely viewed as a candidate for Cleveland with the first overall pick, and UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen has been projected ahead of Mayfield among draft-eligible quarterbacks.

Barkley may not end up being there for the Raiders at No. 10, but if he is, he could be exactly what the offense needs to get back to where they are supposed to be. Since then, we have heard speculation of that pick being any of Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen, Baker Mayfield, Saquon Barkley, Bradley Chubb, and even Minkah Fitzpatrick for a brief period. 37-year-old Manning is still No. 1 guy and question is how much longer can he play? Also appears to be end for both Christian Hackenberg (2016 second-rounder) and Bryce Petty (2015 fourth-rounder) with Jets. They could target someone like Ward or another defender such as Harold Landry at 12, and possibly take a left tackle at 22.

Enough deliberating, let's see the picks.

This trade would give the Browns the 1st, 12th, 22nd, 33rd, 35th, 53rd, 56th, and 65th picks over days one and two.

The Bill would be able to take their franchise QB and begin rebuilding while keeping all of their picks next season.

"You can go around a room and probably get four or five different opinions on how they should be stacked". He did so despite reported friction between himself, coach Bill Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft following midseason trade of backup Jimmy Garoppolo to San Francisco.
