Which team with a top 10 pick should trade for Myles Garrett?

Browns have alot of holes to fill on both offense and defense.

The jury is still out on the Jared Goff trade.

The other times a #1 was traded, the Chargers ended up getting Rivers and Shawne Merriman. Before that, the Chargers also ended up trading another #1 and got LT and Brees.

The Browns would be silly to pass up an elite pass rusher. Especially with them also holding the #12 pick.

Simply stand pat. Improve the team with better players. Quality over quantity.

I agree. They've got a pretty nice stockpile of picks, so I don't see the advantage of passing on grabbing the best player available. If they didn't, I'd think differently, but they are in a really good spot as far as grabbing enough building blocks to not have to hate themselves going forward.

I'm going to revisit this question, but from the other side of the table and based on the premise that Cleveland IS willing to deal.
Tennessee has a rising offense, but a pretty middling defense. Nothing can change the complexion of a defense like a guy who can disrupt the backfield.
Carolina. Their defense was actually worse than the Titans last year. They brought back Peppers, so maybe a vet-rookie mentorship would work out here.
San Diego. The combination of Garrett and Bosa would create nightmares for opposing offensive lines for the next few years. SD desperately needs defensive help.
I'd say the fit is best in Tennessee and Carolina since they have QBs in or entering their prime. SD might not want to fork over picks since when Rivers leaves, they may find themselves in full rebuild mode, as if they haven't been for about five or six years anyway. Having Rivers does afford them the luxury of maybe looking for his replacement in 2018 when there are going to be much better options available.

I'm sure Warren Sapp's comments over the weekend didn't help Garrett's cause.

I could see Tennessee making a move here to be honest.

Possibly... although getting a stud defender like Jonathan Allen or Jamal Adams sure would be tempting if I were in their shoes.
