The Browns‘ No. 1 pick remains a mystery to everyone, including head coach Hue Jackson, according to Robert Klemko of The MMQB (on Twitter). He also adds that Dorsey has already made his determination, contrary to what has been leaked to the press.
On Wednesday morning, it was reported that the Browns are likely to select either Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen or Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield. Of course, that could just be a smokescreen as many still believe the Browns will take USC’s Sam Darnold.
Here’s the latest NFL Draft buzz:
- On Wednesday, the doctor for Billy Price announced that the Ohio State offensive lineman will be ready for training camp (Twitter link via Ian Rapoport of NFL.com). Now that Price is on track for this summer, it seems likely that he’ll still go within the first 32 picks. Price could be one of several interior offensive linemen to come off of the board in the bottom third of the first round.
- The Broncos have received calls from teams interested in what it would take to trade up to their No. 5 pick, James Palmer of NFL.com tweets. GM John Elway has said that he is open to trading, so it’s a situation to keep an eye on.
- Many believe the Vikings will select an offensive lineman with the No. 30 overall pick, but GM Rick Spielman says that’s not necessarily the case, as Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press writes. Instead, Spielman says they could draft a player from four other positions.
