With speculation swirling about which quarterback the Browns will draft first overall on Thursday night, General Manager John Dorsey spoke Wednesday morning as if only he knows the answer.

"I haven't even told my wife," Dorsey told NFL Network's Steve Wyche, who's embedded at Browns headquarters in Berea for the draft.

But Wyche also reported Wednesday afternoon on the air that Dorsey said coach Hue Jackson, offensive coordinator Todd Haley and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams overlooked the team's finalized draft board Tuesday. Wyche reported the board had been approved by owner Jimmy Haslam, and members of the player personnel department and coaching staff met again Wednesday to review the team's plans for Thursday.

ESPN's Josina Anderson, who's also stationed at Cleveland's facility, asked Dorsey if the Browns have settled on the No. 1 pick.

"We've had really good discussions and that starts with the personnel staff ... the coaching staff, the head coach and ownership. I think we are in alignment. Everybody understands what's going on here," Dorsey said.

For months, Dorsey has said he's open to entertaining trade offers for the first and fourth overall selections. Dorsey told Wyche he hasn't received any legitimate offers for the top choice, though.

The Browns have long been expected to stay put at No. 1 and pick a quarterback in the top spot for the first time since the franchise took Tim Couch first overall as an expansion team in 1999.

Southern California's Sam Darnold had long been considered the favorite to become the top pick, but buzz intensified in the last few weeks about Wyoming's Josh Allen and in the past few days about Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield. UCLA's Josh Rosen is also among the top-four rated quarterbacks in this class, but he hasn't been linked to the Browns like Darnold, Allen and Mayfield have.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported Wednesday the Browns have engaged in trade talks about the No. 4 selection, something Dorsey has stressed he hoped to explore.
