We're just over a month away from the NFL Draft, and who the Cleveland Browns will select with the No. 1 overall pick is still a mystery. Will Cleveland stray from general convention and pick a position other than quarterback?

The Browns hold the No. 1 and No. 4 selections in the upcoming draft, and several NFL draft experts believe the team is considering a running back at No. 1. Penn State running back Saquon Barkley has been heralded as the next big thing among collegiate running backs, but does he deserve to be the first overall pick?

If Cleveland goes away from a quarterback at No. 1, will the Browns land a quarterback at No. 4? Cleveland's draft choices are still a mystery, but Vegas already knows who will be the first quarterback taken.

Vegas like former USC star Sam Darnold to be the first quarterback off the board, but where will he go? It would behoove the Browns to secure a quarterback, whether in free agency or in the draft.

If Cleveland misses on a quarterback like it has done the past two years with Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson, the Browns will continues to be the laughing stock of the NFL - even more than they already are.

The NFL draft kicks off on April 26.
