The Cleveland Browns have been in the news lately and not for good reasons. Last season, the Cleveland Browns went 1-15 and is the worst team in the NFL. Despite being the worst team in the NFL, there’s some hope.
This week, the NFL Draft starts and the Cleveland Browns have first round pick and 12th round pick. Who will the Cleveland Browns pick? Rumors are swirling that the Cleveland Browns will pick Myles Garrett in the first round and Mitchell Trubisky in the 12th round.
Myles Garrett is from Texas A&M and a defensive end. Garrett is 6’4”, has an arm length of 35 ¼”, weighs 272 lbs., and his hands measure 10 ¼”. During the NFL combine, he completed the 40-yard dash in 4.64 seconds, bench-pressed 235 lbs., 33 times, made a vertical jump of 41”, and made a broad jump of 128”. Garrett’s combine grade is 7.63, which is the highest. Overall, Garrett’s strength lies in his jumping ability and speed.
Mitchell Trubisky is from North Carolina ACC and a quarterback. Trubisky is 6’2”, has an arm length of 32”, weighs 222 lbs., and his hands measure 9 ½”. During the NLF combine, he completed the 40-yard dash in 4.67 seconds, made a vertical jump of 27.5”, made a broad jump of 116”, completed the 3-cone drill in 6.87 seconds and completed the 20-yard shuttle in 4.25 seconds. Trubisky’s combine grade is 6.31. Overall, Trubisky’s strength lies in his pocket mobility and throwing ability.
Hopefully, these picks will help address some issues plaguing the Cleveland Browns but don’t place all your hopes on these two players. Remember first round pick Jonny Manziel? After picking Manziel, the Cleveland Browns would later cut him in the season due to his drunkenness and lack of performance.
