The Browns hold the first and fourth overall picks, and while they're likely taking a quarterback with one of those, there isn't a particular consensus on which quarterback is the best option.
Will the Patriots use both of their first-round picks?
Compensatory picks are given to teams who have lost more productive players than they have gained in the previous year's free agency period.
"Hello, Cleveland? This is John Elway". "I don't think you change what you did". It is. It's huge. Saquon Barkley is by far the best player in this year's draft, who has a chance to make a significant impact nearly immediately. If I'm Elway, I make the trade happen.
Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA: Plenty of teams are enamored with the quarterback who's widely considered the best pure passer in this class.
As of right now, just under five hours until the Browns are on the clock, the identity of the first pick is still unknown.
Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer also reported that the Browns have since "cooled" on Darnold and it's down to Mayfield and Allen. Recently, however, another possibility has surfaced: The Browns selecting Baker Mayfield first overall. None of the mock drafts heading into tonight's actual National Football League draft in Dallas seems to even put them in the same order. Not since the team drafted Jim Kelly back in 1983 have the Bills invested such a high pick in the quarterback position. This would be Luck for Sam. Look, he's hardly a sure thing - oh, those turnovers - but he's probably the safest pick among the quarterbacks. It is the Jets, though.
Quarterback Josh Allen #17 of the Wyoming Cowboys gets a pass off during first half action against the Boise State Broncos on October 21, 2017 at Albertsons Stadium in Boise, Idaho. If we had to guess, New England will make one selection Thursday night (at No. 23) and then trade pick No. 31 to get a few more picks for Friday night in Rounds 2 and 3. Teams in the top 10 that aren't interested in quarterbacks will surely be thrilled to have such quality prospects fall their way with others eyeing Darnold or Mayfield.
