The latest NFL Draft rumors have to be music to the ears of UNC quarterback Mitch Trubisky.
While it has been widely speculated for months that the Cleveland Browns will ultimately take Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett with the No. 1 pick, there is a growing belief that the Browns will change course and roll the dice on their top-ranked signal-caller on Thursday night in Philadelphia.
It was just a few days ago that ESPN’s Todd McShay said the Browns were locked in on Garrett, but it’s draft season and things could change on a dime.
According to the latest buzz, there are multiple teams in the top ten and teams in the quarterback market who think Trubisky will either be called with the No. 1 pick or the Browns will make a big splash to move into the top three to secure their quarterback of the future.
Here is what people are saying:
Almost 230am and just got a call from a team in the top 10 that thinks Trubisky goes No. 1

Two teams in the QB chase believe Trubisky will be the No.1 pick OR Cleveland will pay a truckload to move up to the 2 or 3 spot

Would the Browns really roll the dice on a quarterback with one season of starting experience at the collegiate player over the consensus top talent? Well, this is the Browns, so anything is possible.
One thing is for certain, however.
With the draft just hours away, the intrigue is out an all-time high and the smokescreens are going to continue to come.
The first-round of the draft begins tonight at 8 p.m. ET.
