With the NFL draft just hours away, Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett will be the Browns' No. 1 pick, multiple league sources tell cleveland.com. The Browns' top brass met Thursday afternoon to solidify their plans, but some of them have known for a while that Garrett was the pick. "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 Wednesday. Heading into the big day, there had been rumblings that the Browns might surprise the football world and take Mitch Trubisky No. 1, but that won't be the case. ESPN's Adam Schefter even 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." Instead, the Browns have been working the phones and will continue to try to trade up for Trubisky from No. 12. They also have the No. 33 and No. 52 overall picks. But they won't panic or overspend to get him. Brown told NFL Network on Wednesday "we're not desperate for a quarterback.''
