As he is a Cleveland native, many Browns fans are clamoring for Mitchell Trubisky much like they were when Bernie Kosar was eligible for the 1985 Draft. While Cleveland has the No. 1 overall pick the consensus is that Myles Garrett is just too good to pass up.
If Trubisky is the player the Cleveland front office thinks can solve their ongoing QB search, they have a few options at their disposal.
The Browns have five of the top 65 picks this year, including No. 1 and No. 12. They will probably not use the first pick on Trubisky as that would be considered a giant reach. They could simply wait until they pick again at 12 and hope he is still on the board.

The Browns could also try to trade up from 12 to ensure they get the QB they want. Numerous teams picking in the top six are rumored to be looking to trade down. The question is how much would it cost Cleveland to move up and how far up would they have to move?
Despite his limited starting experience in college, Trubisky is being called the most NFL-ready QB of the incoming class. Cleveland’s head coach Hue Jackson is known to be great at getting the most from the position. He could really help Trubisky along in his development this year so he is ready to start sooner rather than later.
For Browns fans looking for a franchise QB and face of the team, “local kid done good” Mitchell Trubisky could be that player.
