Report: The Browns Are Split Between Myles Garrett And Mitch Trubisky For No. 1 Pick

The Cleveland Browns are still trying to decide what to do with the No. 1 pick.

We're just over two weeks away from the 2017 NFL Draft, and the team with the No. 1 pick is still undecided on who it is going to take. The Cleveland Browns ended the 2016 season with just two wins, gifting the team the No. 1 pick in this year's draft, but who are they going to take?

Myles Garrett is the prohibitive favorite to go No. 1 overall, but there might be some doubt as to how likely that is now. Tuesday night, multiple reports surfaced stating the Browns are split on what to do with their first pick.

Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported the news.

The teams with the No. 2, San Francisco, and No. 3, Chicago Bears, picks in the draft are also thinking about taking a quarterback. If the Browns take Garrett with the No. 1 pick, they might miss out on Trubisky, who many think will be the first quarterback off the board.

Cleveland also holds the No. 12 pick, which it can use to take whatever quarterback is left. Another interesting idea is the Browns can wait on next year's draft to take a quarterback. USC's Sam Darnold is the favorite to go No. 1 overall in next year's draft, and if the Browns play their cards right, they might just end up with the No. 1 pick two years in a row.
