3. Thompson-Robinson was not a highly-regarded prospect, or a popular draft pick

Quarterback wasn't exactly a need for the Browns in this draft, especially with Dobbs as the QB2, and taking DTR felt like a bit of a luxury pick.

It was late enough in the draft not to be too worrying though, since Thompson-Robinson had fallen to the fifth round of the 2023 NFL Draft and the Browns made him the 140th player taken. Nine quarterbacks went off the board before he did.

Of course, there's never a time when fans are happier to eat their own words than being wrong about a draft pick being bad. Everyone gets predictions wrong sometimes, and being wrong but finding out your team landed a gem in the draft?

Well you've gotta be pretty happy about that.
