The Browns made a number of roster changes this offseason, including drafting Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick.

The first round of the 2017 NFL Draft should start out smoothly for the Browns.

Cleveland general manager Sashi Brown told the NFL Network the club decided on who it will select first overall two weeks ago. According to Brown, "only three or four people in the world" know who the pick is.

That's assuming Brown is telling the truth and all is really that harmonious within the organization and that there wasn't any squabbling on who to select.

Right now, the general consensus is that former Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett will be heading to Cleveland. However, with the Browns' quarterback situation far from stable, there is some late speculation that the team will go with North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky.

CBS Sports reported Friday Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has been stumping for a quarterback at No. 1.

With such high faith in this pick, hopefully the Browns can win more than one game this season.
