What should the Browns do with the No. 1 pick?

Seeing him go anywhere but No. 1 is ridiculous. No, this is not a joke. By then, hopefully some of the younger players on offense, such as promising wide receivers Robby Anderson and Charone Peake and young offensive lineman Brandon Shell, develop into better players such that they are able to better support the new QB's development. It's the only position that can trump player ratings and displace Garrett.

In the last week, the Browns have been linked to Myles Garrett, Mitchell Trubisky and Leonard Fournette.

In Cleveland Browns draft rumors, speculation is running rampant leading up to the 2017 NFL Draft.

Trubisky completed 304 of his 446 attempts (68.2 percent) for 3,748 yards and 30 touchdowns against just six interceptions in 2016. Texas A&M won 45-24. Pressure causes both QBs and front offices to make mental errors, like floating yet another first round pick on a quarterback. Joe Haden wasn't bad, but his game has gone by the wayside the past two years.

It's not a secret the 49ers are examining quarterbacks in this draft.

In Trubisky, the Browns get a one-read quarterback with a tendency to fumble under pressure and who has only one season's experience under his belt.

NY set to make state college tuition free for middle class
That $32,200 balance, however, reflects loan balances for students of all NY schools, including high-priced private schools. It is revealed about 80 percent of the families in NY with college-age kids could use the Excelsior Scholarship program .

Regardless, after talking to a host of scouts and execs this week, the quarterback debate will begin once Trubisky is off the board. Garrett is the premier prospect in this class.

"We lack the top-tier talent at the position this year", NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah said on a conference call. Nearly nothing could knock Garrett from the pedestal of being the top player in the class, but the Browns are seemingly trying to find a way to make that happen.

Many experts say that he's the best quarterback in this draft.

The Browns do need a quarterback. But that's completely beside the point.

Complicating matters is Garrett, whom National Football League teams may not be as sold on as many draft evaluators previously believed.

However, if it's 10th overall, it might just be a little too rich for their blood considering their offseason actions and plans for 2017. One reason they acquired all these picks is to add players.
