Cleveland Browns' Sashi Brown on draft: We've narrowed it down

BEREA - Just over one week from draft day, Cleveland Browns' General Manager Sashi Brown wouldn't tip his hand to reporters at the team's training facility in Berea.

He did, however, dispel rumors that the team can't decide on its draft picks.

"We've narrowed it down," Brown told the media in a Wednesday news conference. "We feel good about where we are."

Brown refused to delve into specifics on particular players in the draft, and merely said he intends to take the best players available.

"We feel good about where we're going to be and who we're going to pick," he said.

When asked about Mentor native quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, Brown refused to express concern for Trubisky's slim amount of playing time at the University of North Carolina, but acknowledged that he is aware of Trubisky's history. 

Brown also called Trubisky a "positive young man" and "very bright," and said the team was "very impressed" by him.

Brown also refused to comment on the slough of rumors that the team intends to trade up from No. 12, possibly to the New York Jets' pick at No. 6. 

When it comes to quarterbacks, Brown was short and to the point, especially when asked if the team intends to trade for a veteran quarterback.

"No," was all he said.
