The 2017 NFL Draft takes place tonight and the rumor mill has been churning.
Early Thursday morning, there was building momentum for UNC quarterback Mitch Trubisky to become the No. 1 overall pick, but it looks like people are beginning to come back to Earth and Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett is back in the driver’s seat.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Garrett is still “likely” the Cleveland Browns’ No. 1 pick.
Garrett has been favored to be the selection throughout the entire draft process, so a late switch would have been a shock. But by staying with Garrett at No. 1, the Browns could sit back at No. 12 to draft either Trubisky or Deshaun Watson or package the pick with a second-rounder to move into the top ten to select their franchise of the future.
There are so many possibilities, and in a matter of hours we will find out which way the Browns brass decides to go.
