By losing to the Steelers today, the Browns have officially secured the first overall selection in the 2017 NFL draft.Hue Jackson (Vertical)

Squarely in the midst of a massive rebuild, the Browns will now get their choice of collegiate players next spring, and will have the option of selecting a quarterback if they so choose. The club has been linked to both Mitch Trubisky and DeShone Kizer, but it’s unclear if Cleveland would feel comfortable using the first overall pick on either signal-caller. Meanwhile, the Browns reportedly have placed an “astronomical” grade on Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett, who is fully expected to declare for the draft.

Thanks to a series of trades, Cleveland is well-armed in the 2017 draft, and the club will have an additional first-rounder (via Philadelphia) to pair with the first overall pick. All told, the Browns currently have eight picks secured, including two in each of the first two rounds. A new voice could assist in selecting players at those spots, as a report earlier today indicated that Cleveland may look to hire another executive to its front office.

        I guarantee you are not a talent evaluator or executive in the Browns organization.

          He clearly isn’t. I bet he also “knows” that Hue Jackson is a good HC.

      It has certainly sucked. I feel good about Coleman and it’s still early. Winslow and Edwards were incredibly talented and it showed when they weren’t injured or assholes.
