NFL insider "convinced" the Browns will make a horrendous decision at No. 1 overall


The Cleveland Browns hold the No. 1 overall selection, and depending on what you believe, they could be eyeing a horrendous decision by selection quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

There's been plenty of talk that Trubisky could go any spot in the first round from No. 1 with the Browns to No. 25 to the Houston Texans.

This latest report follows the line of thinking from Mike Freeman over at Bleacher Report.

"I also hear that the front office and (coach) Hue Jackson are clashing a bit over the direction they want to go. Hue wants a quarterback from the draft and they don't."

First, on the trading down. The Browns have a chance to draft a real difference maker on defense in defender Myles Garrett, a player draft guru Greg Cosell calls a better pass rushing prospect than Jadeveon Clowney.


Next, there's a difference between taking "a quarterback from the draft" and taking a project out of college who can't start from day one as the overall No. 1 pick, as this report suggested. However, Adam Schefter truly believes it's not out of the question:

The idea that Trubisky will be the No. 1 pick is a bit baffling considering many mock drafts have him still available when the Browns pick again at No. 11. Pressure from the outside and Jackson's reported interest in landing a quarterback may push the Browns into foolish territory yet again.

Trubisky threw for 3,748 yards and 30 touchdowns in 2016 for the North Carolina Tar Heels.
