One week before the NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns have become the X-factor for how the first few picks may play out. Join the With the First Pick team!

At a press conference discussing the draft on Wednesday, Cleveland general manager Sashi Brown opened up when asked about Brocks position with the team.

“He is in and has done a good job coming in the first couple of days. "You know that timing in a quarterback's head, that knowing that he's about to get hit and being able to get there and get that pressure on him, it helps out the secondary big time".

"That said, a lot of it is outside your hands - what players will be available, what trade partners might be willing".

"Because I'll be a difference maker from day one".

The start of the 2017 NFL Draft is exactly week away, and all 32 teams are using their final visits with prospects and making their final evaluations.

Whether he's an option depends on whether the Bears make LSU's Jamal Adams or Ohio State's Malik Hooker, the top two players at their position, the highest safety drafted since the Browns took Eric Turner second 26 years ago.

Still, there's only so much information to gather and analyze.

As the free agency frenzy winds down, the football world's attention turns towards the NFL Draft, which will be held April 27-29 in Philadelphia, PA. We just don't think that's a good way to do business over time.

Dan Patrick said on his radio show, "I'm hearing if you really want Trubisky, you're going to have to go up to 5". A third-string quarterback could come in if one is available by the time Cleveland picks at the 12th spot. That remains to be seen and could depend largely on the actions of other teams.

In that span the Aggies have had two players drafted second overall: Von Miller in 2011 and Luke Joeckel in 2013. "We were impressed by him".

A pivotal Browns figure is a San Diegan, La Jolla resident Paul DePodesta, a former Padres exec who is in his second offseason with Cleveland's front office. But he did attempt 571 passes - only 41 fewer than Carson Wentz, drafted second overall previous year after playing at North Dakota State.

The Buffalo Bills have expressed interest in picking a quarterback in the draft despite bringing back Tyrod Taylor, and they will have Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson in for a visit tomorrow, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.
