Browns zero in on No. 1 pick, trade for veteran QB unlikely

North Carolina's Mitch Trubisky is believed to be Cleveland's highest-rated quarterback, and his Northeast Ohio roots could make him irresistible to the team he grew up rooting for.

He has now purportedly moved into the top three on most team's draft boards.

Third, it is more likely than not that the Browns select a QB with the #12 pick, or trading from that pick. Not one of those quarterbacks finished with a record above.500 as a starter with the club as the playoff drought continues.

The Jets, who own the sixth overall pick, are rumored to be the most likely trade partner.

One option would be trading up from No. 12 to get Trubisky, and walterfootball.com reported Wednesday the Browns have talked to the New York Jets about the No. 6 pick. EVP Sashi Brown and GM Andrew Berry all but confirmed it in today's press conference when their facial expressions gave it away while talking about Garrett. Cleveland is concerned that the Jets or the Bills (at pick 10) would take Trubisky before Cleveland is on the clock at 12.

Osweiler now has the most National Football League experience at quarterback on the Browns roster. Therefore they may gamble on Trubisky, leaving Garrett to drop from the top spot.

Now if the Bears had a chance at Texas A&M's Myles Garrett and the generational edge rusher he appears to be, the circumstances might be different in this situation.

The possibilities and dream scenarios for the Bears are endless.

Schumer warns against rule change for Gorsuch
Trashing the filibuster over a single nominee would be doing a judge of Gorsuch's caliber - and the nation - a awful disservice. Seven Democrats and one independent, Angus King of ME , who usually votes with them, have not yet announced their position.

The 49ers need a quarterback but might not be comfortable with Trubiksy/Watson second overall.

The Cleveland Browns took the draft by storm a year ago by swapping the second-overall pick to the Philadelphia Eagles for a bushel of future selections.

Who are the mystery teams that have a dialogue with the Bears that want to move up, too?

Here are four teams that could call on the teal and black to make a trade.

Reports have it that Lynch will trade the No. 2 pick to the Washington Redskins for quarterback Kirk Cousins. Campbell adds a deal, if agreed to, wouldn't happen until the draft. Here are all the latest 2017 NFL Draft rumors and news you need to know from around the NFL. As of right now, Cleveland has Brock Osweiler, Kevin Hogan and Cody Kessler under contract at quarterback.

And with that, Cleveland's seemingly endless quarterback quest took another twist. But a confluence of circumstances might be positioning the Bears for a possible trade the opposite direction.

Or will it be Myles Garrett, the defensive end out of Texas A&M University, who recorded 7.5 sacks and 33 tackles, along with two passes defended past year for the Red Raiders? That's probably why Lynch said the 49ers would "listen to anything". Deshaun Watson is my favorite quarterback in this class and should be the Bears' selection at number three.
