NFL Draft Rumors: Cleveland Browns may draft two quarterbacks


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.

    • Ryan Krempasky

      Because look what happened in Washington RG3 was a clear cut pick right? Well yes but he has injury problems but the good thing is they drafted another Qb in Cousins so they have a backup plan that is what the Browns are thinking take the clear cut Qb but get yourself a good backup plan

    You draft two to CYA! It gives you the possibility to at least have one that fits the bill! I have heard more than one supposed draft expert say that there is one that is not one of the Big four who will be a very good QB in the NFL! Yet I’ve seen or heard no names??
