Browns Draft Rumors: Interest From Other Teams Forcing Cleveland To Take Trubisky With Top Pick?

The Cleveland Browns have also been open about their desire to draft Trubisky, even debating taking him with the No. 1 overall pick over Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett.

Because of that, San Francisco's interest in Trubisky - and even the Chicago Bears' reported interest in him at No. 3 - are likely smokescreens to try and get the Browns to pull the trigger on Trubisky with that top pick, allowing Garrett to fall, according to ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi.

Cleveland has been in trade talks with the New York Jets about moving up to the No. 6 spot, but it appears as if the Browns don't want to risk trading up if Trubisky is going to be off the board. As such, they may pass on Garrett for Trubisky at No. 1 and use their other first round pick to draft a defensive player in order to ensure they land Trubisky.

Trubisky passed for 3,748 yards with 30 touchdowns and just six interceptions last season.
