Report: Browns Front Office, Coaching Staff Possibly Split Between Garrett, Trubisky

Take this with a grain of salt, but CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported Friday the Cleveland Browns front office and coaching staff are conflicted on what to do with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

According to La Canfora’s sources, the coaching staff is “all-in” on Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett, while the front office and owner Jimmy Haslam are pushing to select Mentor-native, North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, perhaps by trading down from No. 1 overall.

La Canfora also notes that a trade for Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo would “appease” Haslam and the front office, while also allowing the Browns to possibly select Garrett with the first pick, giving the coaching staff their preferred choice.

We’re less than one week away from Draft Night, stay tuned.
