Browns Coach Would Consider Drafting Two QBs This Year

Mike Pettine

While the Cleveland Browns addressed many of their glaring needs during free agency, the one area they neglected to upgrade was at the quarterback position. Currently the Browns have Brian Hoyer and Alex Tanney on the roster, and while Hoyer had a nice season last year before going down with a serious knee injury, Cleveland should, and probably will, address their QB situation in the upcoming draft. And if new head coach Mike Pettine has his way, the Browns may draft not one, but two signal callers, citing the depth in this year’s draft class.

Pettine believes the draft is deep enough to draft a couple of quarterbacks, much like the Redskins did in 2012 when they took RG3 and Kirk Cousins with two of their first three picks. The Browns hold the 4th and 26th pick in the first round of this year’s draft, and while it’s highly unlikely Cleveland would spend their first two picks on QBs, this is the Cleveland Browns we’re talking about here, a team not exactly known for making the best choices come draft day.
