The Cleveland Browns have one of the top young wide receivers in the league in Josh Gordon, but they still need to find a quarterback that will be able to get him the football on a consistent basis. It appears that they are committed to doing so, at least according to Gordon.
For the second time this offseason, Gordon says that the quarterbacks will be taking a quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft, though he doesn’t say how early.
“From talking with [G.M.] Ray Farmer, I’m still pretty sure we’re going to take a quarterback,” Gordon told FOX Sports Ohio.
“I like a lot of those guys. I think whoever we get will be the best option for us. It’s such a deep draft class of quarterbacks and they’ve all had really great years. I feel that anybody we get will be able to make something happen.”
Saying, “make something happen” is a nice way of saying “get me the damn ball.”
The Browns have been hosting a number of the top quarterbacks in this year’s draft class so it would not be a surprise to see the team use an early pick on a signal-caller, but we will have to see which quarterback it is they favor.
Teddy Bridgewayer, Jimmy Garoppolo, Zach Mettenberger and Aaron Murray could all be options if they decide to wait until their second first-round pick to make a selection.
