But with just days ahead of the NFL Draft, it could yet take another unexpected turn. Deep research and depth into the backgrounds and film study of the players electing to make themselves eligible for the NFL Draft abound.

This time a year ago, USC quarterback Sam Darnold was being talked about as a Heisman Trophy favorite and potential No. 1 overall draft pick. Allen displayed a rocket arm and was very mobile - especially when considering his size.

100% Bonus on first deposit. Far too early to draft such a receiver, and the Browns go another pick without a starter. If the Browns take Darnold, the Giants aren't expected to look quarterback here because they only have eyes for Donald to be the long-term replacement for Eli Manning.

Josh Rosen's backers love the UCLA star's accuracy and his cerebral game. Will it be Cleveland, or the New York Giants, or his beloved Jets? It appears the Browns are legitimately interested in Oklahoma's Heisman Trophy victor, though.

On the other hand, the prospect of Darnold ending up in the Big Apple would be plenty juicy, particularly if he avoids the troublesome Jets and lands with the Giants.

Adding to that is the four they own among the top 70 (2, 34, 66, and 69), with the last ones being the 108th pick from Tampa Bay in the Jason Pierre-Paul trade and No. 139. The team did sign former Vikings QB Case Keenum to a two-year free-agent deal this offseason, but Keenum is nothing short of a place-holder.

ESPN's NFL Insider Adam Schefter made everyone question their 2018 NFL mock drafts on Tuesday morning when sources informed him that the Cleveland Browns are "definitely" considering Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield as the No. 1 pick. Only Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck had better QBRs.

Secondary help is No. 1 on the Bucs' wish list as Tampa Bay allowed an NFL-high 4,169 passing yards last season.
