Could an internal rift be forming within the Cleveland Browns’ organization as the 2017 NFL Draft approaches? Reports earlier this week suggested that the team was torn between Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett and North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky with the first pick in this year’s draft. That came after months of speculation that Garrett was a lock to go No. 1 overall to the Browns. The issue here is that Cleveland finds itself in a horrendous quarterback situation with the likes of Brock Osweiler and Cody Kessler on the roster to compete for a starting job. That’s most definitely not a winning strategy. And with New England steadfast on not wanting to trade Jimmy Garoppolo, options are severely limited for the Browns to upgrade at this position. Now comes this report from the Cleveland Plain Dealer‘s Mary Kay Cabot indicating that it’s head coach Hue Jackson who is the individual pushing Cleveland to select Garrett over Trubisky with the first pick. This should be a red flag for other key decision makers in the Browns’ front office, general manager Sashi Brown included.
