While many have assumed Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett will be the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NFL draft, the Cleveland Browns could go in a different direction. 

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, a quarterback could be in play to go first overall.

"Don't be surprised if Myles Garrett isn't the No. 1 pick," an executive told Schefter on Tuesday.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller noted the team is interested in North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

Like most others, Miller has Garrett listed as the top overall player on his latest big board. He also noted the edge-rusher will be the top overall pick "barring something unforeseen."

However, Schefter added there are split opinions in the Browns front office between Garrett and Trubisky.

It's clear Cleveland needs a quarterback after going 1-15 last season, using five different quarterbacks without even including converted receiver Terrelle Pryor. The players combined for just a 77.4 quarterback rating.

Still, Garrett is a generational talent and has a chance to be a star in the NFL.
