With the NFL Combine complete and Pro Days taking place across the country, teams around the league are starting to narrow down their choices for who they will take in the 2018 draft starting on Apr. 26. 

 

The biggest question will be what the Cleveland Browns do with the first pick. They could try and pick up a franchise quarterback, something that has been out of the organization's reach since being rebooted in 1999 or go with the best talent available in Penn State running back Saquon Barkley. 

 

For the next seven weeks, mock drafts and pundits alike will probably flip-flop a million times between those two options. 

 

So let us add our names to the list of those speculating about how the first round will go down:
