The NFL Draft’s first round is this Thursday, April 27th in primetime on ESPN and the NFL Network.

Many are wondering if the Cleveland Browns will take who we all assume is the best player in the draft, DE Myles Garrett from Texas A&M, or go with a quarterback like Mitchell Trubisky from North Carolina…or go completely off the rails with another choice. We would probably not wonder so much if any other team than the Browns held the first overall pick.

How many quarterbacks will be taken in the first round? Any surprises?
