Throughout NFL history, a quarterback is usually picked at number one in the draft. With the Cleveland Browns holding the number one pick and head coach Hue Jackson confirming Tyrod Taylor is their starting quarterback, a back up is needed and who knows with Taylor’s history of injuries, this number one pick may come in handy. Be that as it may, reports are coming in that Browns might use not just the first pick for a quarterback but the fourth as well.
Per reports from Kevin Clark of The Ringer, he spoke with the Browns organization and they have considered drafting two quarterbacks high in the draft. Browns quarterback record is far from solid with Johnny Manziel, Brian Hoyer and Robert Griffin III even though he is the last quarterback to win the Browns a game (more credit to Isaiah Crowell’s two touchdowns in that 2016 game).
Jackson said at a team session that this year will be different:
“But I think, let’s just be honest: This is where we are. We’re a 1-31 organization over the last two years. I think it’s time to win. I think our fans deserve to see something different. I think our organization deserves to do something different. I think our players should expect to be different and play different”
Former Penn State running back Saquon Barkley might end up being the second pick with the NY Giants. The Giants did pick up former Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart but adding Barkley will give Eli Manning some help if the offensive line doesn’t prosper off their additions. Even though the Bills starting quarterback job is an open, they may still trade up to that fourth spot.
There’s no confirmation on which quarterback the Browns are looking at after Jackson told ABC News that general manager John Dorsey hasnt settled on a quarterback and that the top picks with Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen, is still up in the air.
