Mitchell Trubisky, North Carolina

Steve Helber/AP draft grade*: 6.54

Measurables: 6-foot-2, 222 pounds, 9.5-inch hands

40-yard dash: 4.67 seconds

What the draft experts are predicting:

Mel Kiper, ESPN — Cleveland Browns (first round, pick 12)

Todd McShay, ESPN — Houston Texans (first round, pick 25)

Will Brinson, CBS Sports — San Francisco 49ers (first round, pick 2)

Dieter Kurtenbach, Fox Sports — Jacksonville Jaguars (first round, pick 4)

Chris Burke, SI — Cleveland Browns (first round, pick 12)

Walter Football — Cleveland Browns (first round, pick 12)

Charley Casserly, — Cleveland Browns (first round, pick 30; projected trade with Saints)

Key quote: Kiper: “This might be the ideal situation for the Browns, getting the top overall prospect at No. 1 (Garrett) and the top quarterback at No. 12. This is assuming they don’t use draft capital to trade for Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo, who could still be available if the price is right.”

* On a scale of 1-10. Less than a 4.50 indicates a player who needs time in a developmental league. 5.00 is a player with a 50/50 shot at making a roster. 6.00 is a player who should be an instant starter. 7.00 is a Pro Bowl-caliber player. 8.00 is a perennial All-Pro. 9.00 is a “once-in-a-lifetime” player.
