Both North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky and Clemson's Deshaun Watson said Friday at the scouting combine they'd like to be, and believe they are ready to be, the draft's No. 1 pick and walk-in starters in the league.
The Cleveland Browns have no intention of keeping quarterback Robert Griffin III any longer than is absolutely necessary.
EVP Sashi Brown admitted the Browns are still looking for the answer at quarterback. "I understand the interest in that and I've seen all the headlines that have been written, but I wouldn't comment on that". On March 2, Coach Hue Jackson was happy to learn Trubisky is north of 6-foot-2. The Browns were 1-15 a year ago.
That team very well could be the Browns who own the first and 12th picks in the first round.
"I'm confident in who I am and I'm confident that I can be a franchise quarterback at the next level", Trubisky said. With no elite quarterback available in this year's draft, why take a quarterback just because of his position?
"Anytime you don't have your starting quarterback, there should always be an urgency, it's our belief". "I would be home and just be able to play and enjoy my time at home and just have a lot of supporters and family out there, and it'd be a huge experience".More news: Giannis Antetokounmpo struggles, Michael Beasley hurt in loss to Cavaliers
"We're going to leave the door open on Joe", Quinn said. "He's a real physical blocker, and so that mentality in the trenches is something that we covet, and he brings it".
And the Browns go through five quarterbacks in a span of eight games.
The Cleveland Browns have chose to not place the franchise tag on wide receiver Terrelle Pryor and are now putting the ball firmly in the court of their most dynamic playmaker. The senior from Austin, Texas, posted more than 1,000 receiving yards in back-to-back seasons, capped by a 1,746-yard, eight-touchdown campaign in 2016. Hawkins was waived on Monday. They showed a commitment to keeping their best players when they re-signed linebacker Jamie Collins in January.
So, our new vow is to keep You Said It alive until the Browns win a Super Bowl.
"That's a question everybody's asking", Trubisky said.
Go ahead, ignore the P.E.A. (Pink Eye Academy, created by me, the self-proclaimed QB whisperer) that has a proven track record of hits with nailing mid-round gems such as Russell Wilson and Dak Prescott.
