No QB Selection With Second Pick
The biggest thing the Cleveland Browns need to avoid in the upcoming draft is taking a quarterback number two overall for the sake of taking a quarterback. There are needs all over the roster and coming off of a 2-14 season, is this really the best environment to develop a young quarterback?
What kind of mental and physical damage would the current roster cause to a rookie signal caller? Think back to when David Carr was taken first overall by the Houston Texans. No one doubted his skill set and he was a great looking prospect. But, Carr’s supporting cast was horrific and he broke his own record for getting sacked in a season multiple times.

I firmly believe that the physical tools were never the issue. Carr just could not develop the finer points of the game while running for his life behind that offensive line.
Cleveland Browns fans everywhere are hungry for a savior at quarterback. With the second pick though, is that the right choice?
I have been pushing for Jalen Ramsey throughout the draft process and stand by that pick even now. I would even be happy with Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa or Ole Miss tackle Laremy Tunsil if the board shakes out that way.
I just don’t want Cleveland to reach for a quarterback that is not considered a franchise changing quarterback that high in the draft. This team’s rebuild will be over the course of a few years and drafting Jared Goff or North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz is not going to fix that.
