Browns could flunk the draft by trading up for Mitchell Trubisky

Myles Garrett is expected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft on Thursday, but one NFL Hall of Famer disagrees.

"I just fell out of my chair laughing when I heard the Warren Sapp story", Finebaum said during "Mike and Mike".

It's safe to say that Sapp knows a bit about what it takes to succeed as a defensive lineman in the National Football League, which makes his recent comments about former Texas A&M star Myles Garrett fairly interesting.

"You look at the draft, this is a really deep draft when it comes to the secondary", head coach Chuck Pagano said, per ESPN.com's Mike Wells.

"Maybe it's recency bias, but it feels like this draft has more top players with character or durability issues than any other I can remember".

The Browns are in a fantastic position heading into this draft. "Hue Jackson's fired in a year and a half because he still doesn't have a quarterback".

If the 2017 NFL Draft was an old SAT question, the query might go like this: DeShone Kizer is to Brian Kelly as Myles Garrett is to whom? Where's the game he took over? Plus, with the 12th overall pick, the Browns have the opportunity to select a much-needed quarterback, running back or wide receiver, then they have the the top pick of the second round to draft yet another player they need on their roster. Where? I watch the tape and he disappears. "You can continue to try to move down the board all you want and pick up more picks, and I get that and I respect that".

But even though the Bears have only two teams - the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers - picking ahead of them, there's one scenario that seems completely unlikely to occur that will be considered a dream-turned-reality. "But at some point, you've got to start taking some difference-makers, and I think he's a difference-maker".

This, draft experts say, would be another in a long line of draft-day blunders by the AFC North basement dweller.

That means the Browns have four of the first 52 picks, giving them ample opportunity to improve their franchise in a hurry if they make the right choices.
