CLEVELAND, Ohio The Browns will have to decide if they want to make hometown boy Mitch Trubisky the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

Trubisky, the Mentor, Ohio, native Discount Football Jerseys and North Carolina quarterback, declared for the NFL draft Monday in an article on The Players' Tribune.

"After a lot of prayer and thought, I have decided to forgo my senior year and enter cheap jerseys the NFL draft,'' he wrote. "This has been the most difficult decision I've ever had to make. But no matter what happens next, I know I'll never experience something as special as being a Tar Heel.''

Trubisky is coming out after starting only one season for the Tar Heels and going 8 5. The lack of experience is the biggest knock against him, but he received a first round grade from the NFL advisory board and is regarded by some as the best quarterback in his class.

The Browns have the No. 1 and No. 12 overall picks in the draft and are in the market for a franchise quarterback.

Trubisky (6 2, 220) finished his college season by completing 68 percent of his passes for 3,748 yards with 30 touchdowns and six picks.

"Going to the NFL has been my goal ever since I was a little boy,'' he wrote. "And now that I have that chance, I'm incredibly excited.''

The Browns are heavily recruiting all wholesale jerseys the top quarterbacks in the draft, including Trubisky, Clemson's Deshaun Watson and Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer.

Browns Executive Vice President of Football seahawks jersey Operations Sashi Brown and Andrew Berry watched Trubisky in person in the Sun Bowl, where North Carolina lost 25 23 to No. 16 Stanford.

Trubisky, the former Mr. Football from Mentor High, almost tied the game at the end, but was sacked on the two point conversion attempt. He had pulled the Tar Heels to within two points on a 2 yard TD pass with 25 seconds left to cap a 97 yard drive.

A redshirt junior, Trubisky completed 23 of 39 attempts for 280 yards, with two touchdown passes and two interceptions, including a pick six. He also lost a fumble that was forced when he ran into an official.

He showed some athleticism, mobility and first round ability, but most draft experts are wary of Trubisky's limited experience. "There's a lot about his skill set that will translate quickly to the pro game, which is why he will be considered a potential top 10 pick. But his ability to use the whole field and decipher coverages are areas that will require more development.''

Brugler observed that Trubisky, coming out of a spread offense, has good upside potential but that patience will be required. Do the Browns have time on their side?

"His tape shows a very efficient passer with athleticism and an accurate arm, making mostly sound decisions,'' said Brugler. "But he can be fooled at times, something we saw in the Sun Bowl with two interceptions to the safety reading his eyes. Like most young quarterbacks who need to be developed in key areas, the organization and fit where he is drafted will determine a lot.''

ESPN's Todd McShay doesn't believe Trubisky is worth the top pick.

"It's not a great year to be drafting early and needing a quarterback,'' he said last month on a conference call. "There's some depth, but I don't see any elite prospects among those I've reviewed so far. No QB in this class is worth the No. 1 pick.''

CBS Sports draft expert Rob Rang is also concerned about those 13 starts.

"For all of Trubisky's talent, the fact that he was unable to earn a starting role until this, his third full season with the Tar Heels, is a bit disconcerting,'' Rang told The Mercury News. "He's not as safe a prospect as any of the four quarterbacks taken with the No. 1 or No. 2 overall picks in the past two drafts. But need at the position could earn him this high of a selection anyway."

In addition to the quarterbacks, the Browns will consider the top two defenders in the draft, Texas A Myles Garrett and Alabama's Jonathan Allen, with the No. 1 pick.
