We're a couple of days away from the 2018 NFL Draft. The first round is set for Thursday night.

Who are the Browns going to take at No. 1 overall? Nobody seems to really know yet. A new report is suggesting that Cleveland is down to two players.

Dan Patrick reported on his radio show this morning that a source told him the Browns are down to two quarterbacks. Those two quarterbacks are Wyoming's Josh Allen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield.

Former USC star Sam Darnold and former UCLA standout Josh Rosen are off the board for Cleveland, according to the report.

There has been a lot of Allen-to-the-Browns at No. 1 talk. And Cleveland's front office has repeatedly said that they like Mayfield.

Still, other reports have suggested that Cleveland likes Darnold. It's possible that no one - including the Browns - know yet.

We'll find out soon. The first round is set to begin on Thursday night. It'll be televised on ESPN, FOX and the NFL Network.

If Mayfield does go No. 1, he won't be there to walk on stage. The former Oklahoma quarterback will be at home in Austin. Here's why.
