Easy choice: Browns CB Haden wants Garrett with No. 1 pick

  • Did Myles Garrett tip off he will be Browns No. 1 pick?More

Cleveland's front office and coaching staff surely feel the team's franchise quarterback is not now on their roster, but know whichever quarterback prospect they select at the end of the month will need time to develop.

Haden, the No. 7 overall pick in 2010, is convinced Garrett can change Cleveland. He struggled with consistency on the field and was surrounded by controversy off. Brown restated his philosophy that he prefers to add picks rather than trade them away, however he's not opposed to it this year considering the volume of assets at their disposal.

After number one, I'm good. The Patriots maintained they wanted to keep Garoppolo, who's entering the past year of his rookie contract, but director of player personnel Nick Carserio left the door slightly ajar Tuesday. He had dinner with coach Hue Jackson.

But let's take a look at a multitude of reasons why the Browns could easily justify selecting the North Carolina quarterback with their first selection. "So that makes it hard in terms of projecting a number of college players to have success in the National Football League system, but there is rigorous debate for all position groups as you go through the draft process, and that is no different for quarterback".

The Patriots are pretty adamant in their leaks that they're not shopping Garoppolo and perhaps the Browns have chose to move on with a rookie quarterback. However, is the team?

"There are only so few people who walk the earth who can play the quarterback position in the NFL", Browns vice president of Player Personnel Andrew Berry said.

The Eagles wanted quarterback Carson Wentz a year ago.

Of course, any comment at this time of year should be taken with a grain of salt. Because a team that has to wait a year for payment is going to force the other club to pay a premium. They also have Brock Osweiler to add to the mix. However, there is a good possibility neither will be available by the 12th pick.

Garoppolo, who played well in two starts in 2016 before injuring his shoulder, would immediately step in as the starter in Cleveland and answer the lingering question at quarterback. Ohio State safety Malik Hooker had two surgeries this offseason, for a sports hernia and a hip labrum. If not, Tight End O.J Howard from Alabama is the move. Cameron Erving, the 2015 first-round pick, failed at center previous year but will get the chance to compete for the right tackle job. They signed right cornerback Jamar Taylor to a contract extension, but depth is a definite problem that could be solved with picks 33 and 52 in the second round and the first pick in the third round, pick 65 overall.
