The Cleveland Browns are one of a few teams sitting atop the first-round who are quarterback needy and that has them heavily involved in rumors surrounding the top quarterbacks int he class. But while the team has the No. 4 pick in the draft, they may not take a quarterback with that pick and may wait until later in the draft to do so.
But while they may not take a top prospect, Cleveland may make up for it by drafting two lower tier quarterbacks later. Tony Grossi from ESPN.com suggests as much, saying that the possibility of the Browns going down this road is more likely than we think.
It’s not a bad strategy to roll with but it cold cause problems with Brian Hoyer’s role on the team. After looking impressive in 2013, he is in line to compete for the starting job and bringing in two rookie quarterbacks would greatly complicate things.
Still, the Browns aren’t in a position to hand over their quarterback gig to just anyone as the team needs to win and someone needs to prove that they’re the guy to make that happen — rookie or not.
