It’s that time of the year!...well, at least for many Browns fans, it is. With the regular season of college football coming to an end, Dan Kadar of SB Nation posted a 2017 NFL mock draft through the first 20 picks, and I think it is glorious if you are a Cleveland fan.
With the losses for Philadelphia piling up, Cleveland is currently in position to have the No. 1 and No. 11 overall picks. At least for the moment, that is good enough for the Browns to get both DE Myles Garrett and QB Mitch Trubisky (although Kadar made a point of saying that he specifically wanted to keep quarterbacks out of the Top 10 as an exercise).
1. Cleveland Browns — Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M
Garrett is the top prospect in next year’s draft, and a player the Browns need. But would Cleveland entertain offers for the top spot?
11. Cleveland Browns (via Philadelphia Eagles) — Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
Trubisky’s mom recently told the local newspaper her son is scheduled to graduate this month, and will announce his pro decision after the Tar Heels’ bowl game. For some reason, I think he’ll go pro despite starting just one season. He’s the choice for Cleveland over Watson because he’s more of a traditional thrower with a bigger body. It’s only a bonus that Trubisky played high school football a bit outside Cleveland. A potential good thing happening for the Browns? Who said mock drafts have to be wholly realistic?
What do you say, Browns fans? I’d say let’s fastforward to the end of April and make this a reality already.
