Browns highly interested in DE Myles Garrett as possible No. 1 pick

"But Cleveland is doing its due diligence in scouting quarterbacks".

Unless Robert Griffin III plays out of his mind through the next four weeks, the Browns still need a quarterback.

The Browns have not drafted a quarterback in the top 20 since 1999.

Entering their Week 14 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Browns lead the 1-11 San Francisco 49ers in the race for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Garrett is a much better prospect than either of those players. The Browns have what one source close to the situation described as an "astronomical grade" on Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett, a blue-chip prospect who would dramatically upgrade Cleveland's defense.

Behind Trubisky, the names you hear most often are Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer, Clemson's Deshaun Watson, and Miami's Brad Kaaya.

The last player from Texas A&M the Browns drafted was quarterback Johnny Manziel in 2014.

The Browns are still spending a lot of time scouting quarterbacks, but Garrett seems to be their man - at least this time. That being said, Garrett recorded 12.5 sacks in 2015 and had at least one sack in eight of his 13 games.

Schefter adds that the Browns could also be in the mix for New England's Jimmy Garroplo, the back-up to Tom Brady who turned a few heads during is spot duty early in the 2016 season. Are they hoping to push their quarterback targets down the board?
