Browns have zeroed in on choice with No

Left cornerback Joe Haden has had back-to-back disappointing seasons.

The Browns took Osweiler - and his $16 million guaranteed salary - from Houston in March as part of a trade that also provided a second-round pick in 2018. No matter who the quarterback is, this guy will get the job done. "Most often, you stay put", Brown said.

At the National Football League owners meeting last month, Brown admitted he'll do what it takes to land that elusive franchise quarterback. If the Browns were going to search for their franchise QB it would have to be hometown hero Mitch Trubisky or National Champion Deshawn Watson. There is nothing not to like about him. The indication about not adding any more veteran quarterbacks has more to do with rumors about A.J. McCarron of the Cincinnati Bengals and Jimmy Garoppolo of the New England Patriots; both of them are often mentioned in trade rumors, but they probably won't be landing in Cleveland. "You do what you can to try to at least align yourself and position yourself so you can execute on that and come out in a way where the organization is going to feel we did the best we possibly could to maximize day one and day two of the draft".

Hue Jackson, who calls the shots on the biggest draft question, is in hiding.

Jabrill Peppers perhaps played out of position at MI last season, lining up as a linebacker even though he seemed most suited to play safety in the NFL.

Which should make an already fun night that much more intriguing for Browns fans.

What are the chances the Bears trade up to pick Myles Garrett? This draft is considered very deep and therefore I believe they would rather add picks than subtract them-especially in the first three or four rounds-even if it means moving up to take a very good player.

Garrett, a 6-foot-4, 272-pound sack specialist, is the consensus top player available and the Browns, who went 1-15 last season, will have first crack at him. Their current quarterback roster includes Kevin Hogan, Cody Kessler and Brock Osweiler. Trubisky is obviously a roll of the dice given that he only started one year for the Tar Heels, but he showed impressive accuracy, athleticism and pocket awareness in 2016. Leading off those days of the draft, NY would have some highly coveted picks that could allow them to trade down again with a team that is desperate to land a player they didn't think would make it to that spot.

Dane Brugler, No. 1: Myles Garrett, OLB, Texas A&M. And they don't really have a choice; the economics of the draft are such that passing on a talent like Garrett with the top overall pick and watching him blossom into the next great pass rusher is precisely the sort of thing that will get multiple people fired.

The Browns are in the rebuilding stage with a quarterback as one of their priorities. In the worst way.
