2017 NFL Draft: What's Browns' best option with No. 12 pick?

There seems to be very little suspense when it comes to the Browns' choice with the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Everyone in and around the NFL expects them to select Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett. However, there is some real intrigue around what they'll do with their second first-round selection, the 12th overall pick. Here are some of the rumors floating around:

Option 1: They include this pick in a package of picks to send to New England for Jimmy Garoppolo.

Option 2: They use this pick to select a quarterback, either Mitchell Trubisky or Deshaun Watson.

Option 3: They use this pick to select O.J. Howard, a player they coached in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Option 4: They trade down and collect more draft picks, potentially adding a fourth second-round pick in next year's draft.

Obviously, there are several other options available but these are the four scenarios that come up the most in discussions with those in NFL circles. Personally, I'd choose option 3. I believe Howard is one of the safest players in this class and I wouldn't reach for a quarterback at this spot. Let us know in the comment section which option you think is best.
