With the NFL draft just hours away, Myles Garrett is still the likely pick for the Browns at No. 1. Speculation over the last 24 hours, including some by Adam Schefter, has pointed to Mitch Trubisky being the top pick, but the Browns have continued to try to trade up into the top eight, presumably to draft Trubisky, and have indicated they're still set to take Garrett first overall. The top brass will meet again this afternoon to solidy their plans. Head of football operations Sashi Brown told NFL Network's Mike Silver on Wednesday that he's known the pick for two weeks, and Brown told ESPN's Josina Anderson that the Browns are looking for a game changer at No.1. That says Garrett, not Trubisky, who will need time to develop. "You want to make sure that you get a player (at No. 1) that's going to be an impact player and that we can count on,'' Brown told ESPN. Schefter said on Wednesday that he wouldn't be surprised if Garrett is still the first player off the board, but "I have got very smart, very well-connected people telling me over the last 24 hours that they think Trubisky's going to be the No. 1 pick." But that's not expected to happen. The Browns have been working the phones and will continue to try to work a deal for Trubisky in the top 10 after taking Garrett at No. 1. They have the No. 12, No. 33 and No. 52 overall picks.
