Browns Enamored With Myles Garrett

Dec 12, 2016, 00:51

"But Cleveland is doing its due diligence in scouting quarterbacks".

They now have a one-game "lead" on the San Francisco 49ers, who are 1-11.

Adam Scheffer with ESPN reports that the top prospect on the Cleveland Browns' board for the 2017 NFL Draft may not be a quarterback. The junior has yet to declare for the NFL Draft, but it would be a shock if he made a decision to return to College Station.

It will be interesting to see which direction the Browns ultimately go, but it is clear the team is willing to go with the best player available approach rather than reaching for a signal-caller. He threw 28 touchdowns passes and only four interceptions for the Tar Heels.

However, Schefter's Sunday morning report is indicating that the Browns have an "astronomical grade" for the aforementioned Garrett, who has been anointed as one of the top players in the current crop of collegiate talent. That being said, Garrett recorded 12.5 sacks in 2015 and had at least one sack in eight of his 13 games. Browns scout Lake Dawson, who once starred at Notre Dame, has spent an inordinate amount of time in South Bend scouting Fighting Irish quarterback DeShone Kizer, according to a school source.

The Browns could also look to address the quarterback position through a trade, as some believe they will make a run at New England Patriotsquarterback Jimmy Garoppolo after the season.

The Browns have never played a regular-season game in London.

Any way you slice it, the Cleveland Browns understand that they need to add a quarterback this offseason.
