Browns have zeroed in on choice with No. 1 draft pick

The Texans dumped Osweiler's contract on the Browns with a second round pick to thank Cleveland for relieving them of a poor cap decision.

Said Brown: "We don't comment on all the rumors".

Lance Zierlein, NFL.com: The guy is a freak, which leads us to a comparable NFL talent in Jevon "The Freak" Kearse.

The Jets, who own the sixth overall pick, are rumored to be the most likely trade partner. "We feel really good about having effectively two draft classes through the first two rounds ... there will be a lot of good Cleveland Brown players coming off the board on Thursday and Friday night". "But are we planning on it or is that the plan? No". Brown restated his philosophy that he prefers to add picks rather than trade them away, however he's not opposed to it this year considering the volume of assets at their disposal.

The last time three defensive players went in the top five of the draft was 2011.

King says circumstances in this particular draft - where there is no clear No. 2 choice after No. 1 Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett, combined with a deep talent pool - make the 49ers' scenario a mystery. The Patriots maintained they wanted to keep Garoppolo, who's entering the previous year of his rookie contract, but director of player personnel Nick Carserio left the door slightly ajar Tuesday.

We don't know the team that called up, but if they called the Browns, one would imagine they also have called the San Francisco 49ers.

"We expect Brock to be here", Brown said.

At a press conference discussing the draft on Wednesday, Cleveland general manager Sashi Brown opened up when asked about Brocks position with the team. "We want to get those right".

While we are dead center in the cough-inducing, eye-burning thickness of pre-draft smokescreen season, this is a possibility that makes too much sense. We have said the draft is going to be the pipeline.

"A positive young man, bright, very competitive and brings kind of a lunchbox, blue-collar mentality to the position, " said Brown.

The Browns worked out Trubisky and have spent a lot of time with him.

No one is guessing where Jackson comes down on the top draft prospects - Mitch Trubisky, Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson and DeShone Kizer - or how highly he prizes New England's Jimmy Garoppolo. If there was an Andrew Luck in the draft, they might be more inclined to talk, but there isn't. So in theory, why trade to No. 2 when a team could probably get the same player at No. 3 and not have to pat almost as much? "That makes it hard in terms of projecting a number of college players to have success in the National Football League system".
