We're about four hours away from learning who the Cleveland Browns are taking with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, which starts at 8 p.m. E.T. this evening.

Who is it going to be? The narrative today is that it'll be Baker Mayfield.

The former star Oklahoma quarterback is the betting favorite to go No. 1 overall. Reports have suggested that Cleveland has decided on the 2017 Heisman Trophy winner.

Other reports are saying differently, though.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport says that one GM told him there's no way Cleveland will take Mayfield at No. 1.

"I just talked to another GM who's known John Dorsey well, and he said, 'he's not taking Mayfield. I know that's false,'" Rapoport said.

The hours leading up to the NFL Draft are always crazy. This year has been extra crazy with no one seeming to know what's happening with the No. 1 pick.

Stay tuned.
