New Cleveland Browns general manager Ray Farmer has been doing his homework, and if the draft were held today, he knows which quarterback he’d select with the 4th pick in the draft.
Farmer took the job Feb. 11, but apparently has had enough time to make another franchise changing decision. Farmer told the Cleveland Plain Dealer he already knows which quarterback he wants to take in May’sNFL Draft.
“I’ve studied the quarterbacks and I’ve studied other players, and I’ve already started to formulate the rank and order of each position,” Farmer said. “I do know what I’d do if I was held down at the moment. It doesn’t mean that can’t change, but I currently have somebody in front.”
Farmer wouldn’t even say if he was going to take his quarterback with Cleveland’s fourth overall pick.
“I’d say that No. 4 is not necessarily where I would take the guy that I like,” Farmer said. “Again, it may not be the name that everybody thinks is the latest, greatest, and the easy one to spot. There’s definitely an art to selecting people in the draft and it’s finding the right name that fits who you want to be.”
