The Cleveland Browns are in dire need of a quarterback, although they are expected to select defensive end Myles Garrett with the No. 1 pick this year. There remains to be hope if they aim to pick a passer early in the draft and this is via a trade with a team like the Chicago Bears. 

If Cleveland is going for Garrett, but still has the desire to land a top quarterback prospect, it can use its 12th overall pick. However, it is possible that by that time, the quarterbacks eyed were already taken by other teams. To avoid this from happening, ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper suggested for the Browns to target the No. 3 pick, which belongs to Chicago. 

As reported by ESPN, Kiper stated in a conference call that the Browns can use the picks they acquired in previous deals to get the Bears' third overall pick. Then they can use this to choose a quarterback, specifically ex-North Carolina Tar Heels Mitch Trubisky.

"If the Bears want to move out of three, I think that could be a spot for Cleveland to jump up and take Trubisky," Kiper said. It is uncertain why the Bears would want to let go of such a high pick. But they might do it if in return they get a few more which may be utilized in the following rounds. They also do not need a quarterback at this point since they signed Mike Glennon. The 27-year-old is projected to be their starter in the 2017 NFL season. 

If the Browns succeed in this and add Trubisky, they will have four quarterbacks heading to their organized team activities. Likely only three of them will compete for the starting job and these are Trubisky, Brock Osweiler, plus Cody Kessler.
