The ESPN NFL Draft expert is predicting a surprise at No. 1.

ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper has released his final mock draft in anticipation of tonight's festivities.

The 2017 NFL Draft is set to begin in Philadelphia tonight.

Kiper is predicting a surprise at No. 1.

He has the Cleveland Browns taking North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky at No. 1 overall, despite Texas A&M defensive lineman Myles Garrett being the consensus top prospect.

From ESPN:

How's this for a curveball to begin the night? The thinking is the Browns get antsy about Trubisky being available at No. 12 and don't find any takers to trade up. Could Cleveland ownership get involved and insist on a QB here? Remember, the Browns passed on Carson Wentz last year and really need a franchise-changer at the position. Myles Garrett is my No. 1-ranked prospect.

That would certainly be a bit of a stunner.

The NFL Draft starts at 8 p.m. E.T.
