NFL Draft rumors: Cleveland Browns meeting with Aaron Murray

If you ask wide receiver Josh Gordon, the Cleveland Browns will be selecting a quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft. Gordon has said this on multiple occasions and referred to conversations with general manager Ray Farmer that caused him to form his opinion, so he has to feel good when he sees news that the team is bringing in quarterbacks in the 2014 NFL Draft class for visits.

The next player to meet with the Browns, will be Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray, who Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer says will visit with the team next week.

Cleveland has also met with Johnny Manziel and Blake Bortles, who would be options with the No. 4 overall pick.

By bringing in Murray, it shows that the Browns would be willing to wait until the second day of the draft to find their quarterback of the future, which would allow them to focus on filling other needs on the roster with their two first-round picks.

The Browns current quarterbacks are Brian Hoyer and Alex Tanney, so there is a clear need to add depth under center.

With Murray, who is recovering from a torn ACL, the Browns would be able to give Hoyer an opportunity to show what he can do with the offense while allowing Murray to get back to 100 percent and fine tune his skills before competing for the starting job.
