NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the 49ers are "strongly considering" taking a quarterback at No. 2 overall.
Evaluators seem split on who the actual top quarterback in this class is, but "those who know" coach Kyle Shanahan believe UNC's Mitchell Trubisky "would best fit" Shanahan's offense. The 49ers have also been mentioned as a team looking to trade down, so it's impossible to know for sure what these teams are thinking. After (we assume) Myles Garrett goes No. 1, the first round is up in the air. Apr 24 - 9:42 AM

According to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, the 49ers (No. 2), Titans (No. 5), Jets (No. 6) and Bills (No. 10) have all made calls about moving down in the first round.

Meanwhile the Browns, who can't seem to choose between Myles Garrett and Mitchell Trubisky, are looking to trade up from No. 12. The Browns can potentially get both players by moving up, though they'd have to come up with a pretty enticing trade package to accomplish that. In a draft with few sure things, we're sure to see a few trades go down before Thursday.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky is still "under serious consideration" by the Browns for the first overall pick in next week's draft.

There's little question that Myles Garrett is the most talented player in this year's draft, but the Browns need to weigh that against their need for a franchise quarterback. If the Browns pass on Trubisky with the first pick, it's unlikely he'd be available when they pick again at No. 12. The front office reportedly favors taking Trubisky first overall while the coaching staff is dead-set on Garrett. It will be fascinating to see this tug of war play out over the next five days.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians raised concerns about UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky's level of experience.

All of Trubisky's 13 college starts came last season. "The growth potential is obviously there," Arians said. "The question is why wasn't all that talent starting for the last three years?" It is a question quarterback-needy teams in the top 10 certainly have to ponder, but Trubisky's lack of experience is a minor red flag compared to the warts on other top prospects. He is fully expected to be the first quarterback selected next week. While Trubisky is highly unlikely to be available to the Cardinals when they pick at No. 13, it will not be surprising if they grab a quarterback early.

Mary Kay Kabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the Browns are open to trading up from No. 12 overall.

The Browns have been split on whether to take Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett or North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 1 pick. If the Browns are able to trade up from No. 12, they might be able to land both. "We don't want to force things just to have things happen," said President of Football Operations Sashi Brown. "But we are going to stay aggressive at quarterback as we will all positions." The Jets have already contacted the Browns about moving down from No. 6 while the Titans are also open for business at No. 5.

North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky is visiting the Jets Thursday.

The Jets also sent a large contingent to his Pro Day and hosted a private workout with Trubisky. ESPN's Rich Cimini has reported they are "very intrigued." The top quarterback available, landing Trubisky will cost the Jets the No. 6 overall pick at least. It is a steep price after they wasted a second-round pick on Christian Hackenberg last year, but no price is too high if they think Trubisky can be the long-term answer. New York has also shown interest in Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes, Clemson's Deshaun Watson, and Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer believes the Browns have North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky atop their quarterback board.

The Browns are widely expected to take Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall, so the question becomes if they'll pull the trigger on Trubisky if he's available at No. 12. There's been little talk of a trade up, but that's the sort of development that usually emerges last minute. Cleveland's biggest competition for Trubisky could be the Jets at No. 6.
Apr 4 - 6:48 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said it is a "tough task" for quarterbacks to play as a rookie.

"There's no substitute for experience," O'Brien said. "So, I think it's hard to ask a guy to come in straight from college and Day 1 he's a starter." The comments were made at the league meeting last week, but they are more interesting following Tony Romo's decision to retire. Even if the Texans were able to move up from No. 25 overall to land someone like UNC's Mitchell Trubisky, that player would be unlikely to solve their quarterback problem right out of the gate. With Tom Savage currently atop the depth chart, the Texans are in dire straits at quarterback (again).

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports "the Jets are very intrigued" by UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky.

The Jets will have a contingent at Trubisky's Pro Day on Tuesday. Despite signing Josh McCown to be their bridge starter and drafting Christian Hackenberg in the second round last season, there continues to be speculation the Jets will draft a quarterback. Taking Trubisky would require the No. 6 overall pick, however, meaning they would need to be more than intrigued by his talent to pull the trigger. The Browns are reportedly targeting Trubisky with the No. 12 overall pick.

Mar 21 - 9:49 AM

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the Browns are "fairly confident" they can wait on UNC QB Mitch Trubisky or Clemson QB Deshaun Watson until the No. 12 overall pick.

The Browns are beginning to appear too high on Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett to pass with the No. 1 overall pick. If they're comfortable with either Trubisky or Watson, it's a reasonable assumption one of them will still be on the board at No. 12 overall, but a trade up could end up being necessary. The Browns have the draft capital, and then some, for such a move. Trubisky has been connected to the Browns early and often.

Speaking at the Combine Thursday, Browns coach Hue Jackson said the team will "aggressively" pursue a quarterback solution this offseason.

Jackson went on to claim the team wouldn't mind heading into 2017 with Cody Kessler, Robert Griffin III and Kevin Hogan. That's extremely unlikely. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Thursday that North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky is "on the Browns' radar at No. 1 overall." Cleveland owns the Nos. 1 and 12 picks, giving it flexibility.
Mar 2 - 2:17 PM

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky is "on the Browns' radar at No. 1 overall."

There had been concerns about his height, but Trubisky measured 6-foot-2 and 1/8-inches at the Combine. Asked about the measurement, Browns coach Hue Jackson said his threshold is 6-foot-2 for a quarterback and that height is "an important piece of the puzzle." It seems relevant to note Cody Kessler, who the Browns drafted in the third round last season, is "only" 6-foot-1. Drafting a guy with limited experience like Trubisky at No. 1 overall would seem to go against the way the Browns attacked the draft last season. It remains more likely they take Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett if they stick in the No. 1 spot.
Mar 2 - 9:32 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Browns and Jets are both "highly intrigued" by North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky.

Both teams have already been connected to the UNC product. The New York Daily News reported in December that Gang Green was "all over" him, while Browns EVP Sashi Brown personally attended Trubisky's bowl game. Trubisky will be one of this year's most scrutinized prospects.

According to NFL Network's Mike Mayock, some league evaluators believe UNC QB Mitch Trubisky will measure in closer to 6-foot-1 than 6-foot-3, the height at which he was listed at North Carolina.

This nugget was passed along by Mocking the Draft's Dan Kadar, who does an outstanding job covering the draft each year. While being 6-foot-1 in and of itself won't make or break Trubisky's big-league career, it could affect his draft stock. Only two quarterbacks over the last 15 years measuring 6-foot-1 or shorter have been drafted in the first round. UNC listed Trubisky at 6-foot-3, 220.
Jan 30 - 4:02 PM

Based on "conversations with scouts and personnel executives," USA Today's Tom Pelissero came away from this week's Senior Bowl believing UNC's Mitch Trubisky is considered this year's No. 1 quarterback prospect.

Clemson's Deshaun Watson and Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer both possess franchise quarterback talent, but Watson's accuracy, mechanics, and durability are seen as concerns while Kizer got benched in 2016 and is expected to face questions about his passion for football. Trubisky made only 13 college starts, sitting his first two years behind non-prospect Marquise Williams at North Carolina. Needless to say, it's a weak quarterback class.
