Leonard Fournette Could go No. 1 Overall in the NFL Draft

Leonard Fournette Could go No. 1 Overall in the NFL Draft

Miller knows what it's like to be one of the top picks in the draft, and had a lot to say about Myles Garrett.

A trade down would fit with Cleveland's current obsession to have as many baskets as possible for carrying their eggs.

Leonard Fournette has become a sure-fire top 10 pick in the NFL Draft going by most predictions.

He even sticks with the popular mindset that the Browns will go with Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall. A trade down would be perceived by fans and media as a coup if the Browns can credibly take the position that whoever they'd get later is the guy they wanted right out of the gates. Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson look like role players at this point, but Fournette is an old school workhorse-type back that probably has untapped potential as a pass catcher. Fournette's stock continues to rise with less than three weeks until draft day. I'm looking to achieve my goals, and one of them is to win a title for the team that drafts me. The devaluation of the position might push some of those backs further into the draft than you'd expect, but eventually teams will pick up values like the Raiders' DeAndre Washington, the Giants' Paul Perkins, and Chicago's Jordan Howard - all fifth-round selections a year ago.

"The Cowboys are my hometown team, but when push comes to shove, I want to go No. 1", Garrett said.

"By the end of my career, I don't want to hear talk of another Myles Garrett", Garrett said.

The interviewer wisely followed up with the appropriately question from the perspective of Hue Jackson, asking Garrett, "which team do you want to play for?". "Who am I to say that you can't be a part of this great moment?"

The Browns are coming off the worst season in franchise history after narrowly avoiding 0-16 on Christmas eve and they remain the doormat of the National Football League with 88 wins and 200 losses on their resume since 1999.
