The Cleveland Browns are reportedly deciding between two quarterbacks, the Oklahoma Sooners’ Baker Mayfield or Wyoming Cowboys’ Josh Allen, with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.
The Browns previously acquired Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills in an offseason trade. He’s likely viewed as more of a short-term stopgap solution than the long-term answer, though.
Taylor gives Cleveland the option to leave Mayfield or Allen, both of whom are less-polished passers than Darnold or Josh Rosen from the UCLA Bruins, on the bench for a redshirt year.

The offense is otherwise set up for success.
The Browns feature Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson at running back to go along with a star-studded group of receivers, which is highlighted by Josh Gordon, Jarvis Landry and Corey Coleman.
That’s why getting the QB pick right is so important Thursday night.
Another club plotting a trade up: the Packers. Green Bay is targeting a top-tier talent that might require parting with a portion of their league-high 12 draft picks, Rapoport reported. Former Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward is among the players the Packers could potentially target, Rapoport added. The Packers haven’t traded up in the first round since moving up for six-time Pro Dennis Johnson Authentic Jersey Bowl selection Clay Matthews in 2009.
It’s definitely something to keep an eye on over the next several days. For now, Allen remains in the Redskins’ front office as the final two days of the 2018 NFL Draft play out on Friday and Saturday. Whether he has a huge decision-making role remains to be seen.

Going through the evaluation process, there was a number of guys on the board that we liked. We just thought Frank was the best player at that time, the guy who could help us the most, the quickest, Quinn said. We’re really excited about the pick.
The Lions played their interest close to the vest. They interviewed Ragnow at the NFL Combine back in February, but that was the last communication they had with the offensive lineman.
And while he expected to be taken somewhere in the first round, Ragnow admitted he was caught off guard Detroit was the team that called.
