Bleacher Report's Matt Miller does not expect the Jets to take a quarterback at No. 6.
"Odds are the Jets attempt to trade out of the top 10 to let a team like the Cleveland Browns move up to select Trubisky," Miller writes, adding that should New York stand pat, rather than trade out of that spot, LSU S Jamal Adams would probably be the pick if he is still available. Though on that note, it has been reported that when Adams visited the Jets, they essentially asked him why he was doing such a thing, as they do not believe he will be available in the six-hole.

NFL Network's Michael Silver reports that the Browns have discussed trading up with "at least" three teams holding top-eight picks.

"I've learned that at least three teams in the top eight have been contacted by the Browns and discussions have taken place about the prospect of moving up," Silver said on Up to the Minute Live. The presumption here is that they would select Myles Garrett at No. 1, then trade up from the No. 12 pick in order to select UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky. This strikes as a bit more resourceful than simply using the No. 1 pick on Trubisky. If such a trade is consummated, it would likely happen once the draft itself has started.

A scout speaking to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel said UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky has "a ceiling to be a solid starter like Alex Smith."

This isn't the first time we've heard this comp. "There’s a smaller variance between his floor and ceiling than Mahomes," the scout said. "He does some good things but doesn’t get me excited. If he hits he’s like from 10 to 20 among the quarterbacks. Him being a one-year wonder is problematic." Trubisky has also been compared to Kirk Cousins. "You’ve got to try with him," another scout said. "He’s the best of the bunch. You just wish he played more. The guy he played behind was terrible. Kind of a concern. As far as the physical gifts, he’s got everything. He’s got the poise, and he works hard." Trubisky is in play to go anywhere from No. 2 down -- and there's been talk, which we don't buy, that Cleveland is considering him at No. 1. "Can sling the ball but his feet get a little bit happy under pressure," a third scout said. "I don’t think he’s a quick mental processor. That’s going to take some time. I don’t know if guys will rall

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport cites multiple sources stating the 49ers are still considering a QB at No. 2 overall.

"Taking a quarterback high would likely end any chance at Kirk Cousins," Rapoport notes, which is important since so many believe that is where Cousins ultimately ends up in 2018. Every team in the top five has now been linked with a quarterback, if not two.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky is "still under serious consideration by the Browns at No. 1."

Talk of Trubisky to the Browns at No. 1 simply refuses to die. These rumblings kicked off in earnest on April 11, when ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that there were "split opinions" as to whether to select Myles Garrett -- viewed as close to a consensus No. 1 throughout the process -- or Trubisky. Earlier this week, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora dumped even more fuel on this divided fire, passing along word that Hue Jackson and the Browns' coaching staff was "all in" on Garrett, but that the front office was leaning toward Trubisky. With the Cleveland Plain Dealer's fresh report that Trubisky remains in play for the Browns at No. 1, it is becoming increasingly difficult to just dismiss this as idle talk. We still ultimately think that Browns will take Garrett. One other note from Cabot's report -- she was told "don't be surprised" if the 49ers select Trubisky at No. 2, something that the Browns are almost certainly factoring into their decision.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah believes that there is a 70% chance that the Browns select a quarterback in the first round.

Jeremiah broke down the percentages for the most likely top-12 teams to select a quarterback on Day 1. No surprise that he pegged the Browns -- who hold two top-15 picks -- as the most likely to draft a gunslinger. In descending order, the next three teams DJ spotted were the Bills at 60%, the Jets at 40% and the Bears at 35%. He also offered an additional note on the Bears, relaying that he has been hearing for "quite some time" that they could target a quarterback at No. 3. This is all speculative, of course, but the percentages sound about right to us. Perhaps the most interesting takeaway here is that the 49ers -- who have been linked to Mitchell Trubisky at No. 2 -- draw just a 20% mark from DJ.

On a Friday conference call, NFL Network's Mike Mayock expressed a lack of enthusiasm for the Jets drafting a quarterback at No. 6.

"I think most of this quarterback class should be later down the line, whether it's first round or second round," Mayock said, later adding that "[t]he Jets at No. 6 I think is a huge reach for any quarterback in this class. But if they fall in love with somebody, they've got to keep swinging." One other note on Mayock's quarterback thoughts -- he does not believe the Bills, who have been linked to Clemson's Deshaun Watson throughout the process, will be taking a quarterback at No. 10.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports that Browns HC Hue Jackson and his staff are "all-in" on Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett at No. 1, but the front office is leaning towards UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky and owner Jimmy Haslam "badly wants a QB."

Like the opening of baseball and the return of warm weather, April brings its annual Cleveland power struggle related to the NFL Draft. A couple years back, that yearly ritual reportedly led to Haslam leading the charge to trade up to draft Johnny Manziel. We think Garrett will ultimately be the No. 1 pick. Recent reports had Cleveland exploring trade possibilities to move from No. 12 back into the top-10 with an eye on Trubisky, though, so perhaps both divisions within the Cleveland organization will exit Day 1 happy.

Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson has heard from "adamant" evaluators over the last week that the Browns, 49ers, Bears and Bills are targeting UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky.

These are all usual suspects when it comes to Trubisky. Breaking them down, we would be surprised to see Trubisky at No. 1 to Cleveland, but No. 2 to the 49ers wouldn't completely shock -- though San Francisco is reportedly looking to trade down from No. 2. There has been less talk of Trubisky to the Bears and considerably more about Deshaun Watson to the Bills. Expect to hear plenty more adamant evaluators over the next week. Then, showtime.

An NFC general manager told WalterFootball's Charlie Campbell that the San Francisco 49ers are "desperate to trade down."

The GM further insinuated that there is indecision within San Francisco's organization as to who they would take, if stuck in the slot, after Cleveland presumably tabs Texas A&M's Myles Garrett with the No. 1 pick. New 49ers GM John Lynch previously stated, with regards to the No. 2 pick, that he is "open for business." Walter Football hears that some around the league believe San Francisco will take North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky if they are stuck at No. 2. Another widely-discussed scenario has the 49ers taking LSU RB Leonard Fournette.

WalterFootball's Charlie Campbell reports that the Jets and Browns have discussed a trade scenario that would allow Cleveland to move from No. 12 to No. 6 to take a quarterback.

Cleveland would presumably be targeting North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. If Trubisky goes in the top-three, Cleveland may still be motivated to leap ahead of Buffalo to take Clemson's Deshaun Watson. Because Cleveland's interest is prospect-specific, Campbell doesn't believe a trade would be consummated until the Jets are on the clock. To drop six slots in Round 1, the Jets are reportedly asking for the No. 33 overall pick (second round) and the No. 108 overall pick (fourth round). In turn, Cleveland is reportedly offering its other second-round pick, No. 52 overall, along with the No. 145 pick (fifth round).

Appearing on the Rotoworld Football Podcast, Eric Galko of Optimum Scouting passed along word that UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky reached out to the Bills for advice prior to declaring for the NFL draft.

This was prior to the Bills hiring Sean McDermott, but the Bills have been closely analyzing the quarterbacks during the entire process, to the point of the owner flying to campuses to watch private workouts. We think the Bills are the likeliest team to move up for a passer and Trubisky could be their top signal caller.

The Sporting News' Eric Galko hears that "[t]he Jaguars are the one wild card people around the league believe are in play for a QB."

The Jags, of course, already have Blake Bortles at quarterback. The Bortles Experience has been something of a rocky one, though, and Galko passes along that "[o]ne scout from another team said they might be thinking [UNC QB Mitchell] Trubisky." Galko, himself, does not believe a quarterback will land within the first four picks. In his mock draft posted on Monday, Rotoworld's Josh Norris had the Bills trading up to No. 5 with the Titans in order to select Trubisky.
Apr 17 - 3:23 PM

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler writes that "there are several around the league who aren't convinced" that the Bears will pass on a quarterback at No. 3.

The Bears signed Mike Glennon to a three-year, $45 million contract this offseason, with $18.5 million of that guaranteed. Brugler believes that Glennon's signing is not necessarily a block to the Bears using their No. 3 pick on either UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky or Clemson QB Deshaun Watson. NFL Media's Chad Reuter simply does not see Chicago going in this direction -- in his five-round mock draft posted at the end of March, Reuter projected the Bears to select Alabama's Jonathan Allen at No. 3. He does not have Chicago drafting a quarterback in the first five rounds.

49ers GM John Lynch says he's willing to trade the No. 2 overall pick.

"We’re open for business," Lynch said. "We’ll listen to anything. There’s interest." This is no surprise. Mike Freeman reported earlier in the day that San Francisco wanted to trade out of the No. 2 pick "pretty bad." It'll be interesting to see what kind of market Lynch can drum up for the slot. With Cleveland expected to take Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall, Lynch has to be hoping that another franchise becomes smitten with a prospect like UNC QB Mitch Trubisky or LSU RB Leonard Fournette and makes an aggressive offer to move up the board. Most industry mock drafts have the 49ers taking Stanford DE Solomon Thomas at No. 2 at the moment.
