It appears that the Mitchell Trubisky at number one talk is dying. Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com says Myles Garrett will in fact be the Browns pick first overall.

On the surface, this might not mean much to a casual Titans fan. But it keeps Mitchell Trubisky on the board and a trade down for the Titans in play. Tennessee has been linked to Buffalo and Cleveland as trade partners for the North Carolina signal caller. A move back to 10 or 12 would likely net a 2nd round pick this year.

Both Kiper and McShay hopped on the Trubisky-at-1 train this morning in their mocks, but it appears the Browns are going to do the smart thing and just take the best football player. They can always get their quarterback with pick 12 or come up for one they love.

This is a pretty big development. Now as Titans fans, you have to hope he gets past San Francisco.
