It looks like the Cleveland Browns might not take a quarterback at No. 1.
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Cleveland Browns have an "astronomical" grade on Texas A&M defensive lineman Myles Garrett.
It appears that the winless Browns, likely to be picking at No. 1 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, won't be taking a quarterback with the top pick.
As the 0-12 Cleveland Browns get closer to clinching the No. 1 overall draft pick, there is a real chance that the team will not use its top selection on a quarterback.
The Browns have what one source close to the situation described as an "astronomical grade" on Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett, a blue-chip prospect who could dramatically upgrade Cleveland's defense. The Browns are enamored with Garrett, according to the source.
Schefter says the Browns could pursue a quarterback via a trade.
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 and Patriots have been trade partners twice this season.
The 2017 NFL Draft starts on April 27.
