By now just about everybody has read or heard that The Browns have brought in a cavalcade of QB's from both near and far. Both top tier talent like Blake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater, as well as relative unknowns like Pitts, Tom Savage and Ball State's Tom Wenning.
At this point; everybody believes the Browns will take a QB with one of their top three selection ( 4,26,35) In addition; they have brought in so many down board QB's that it now very likely that they will take a flyer on a 5th 6th or even 7th rounder as a "developmental guy" instead of perhaps signing a veteran back-up like Rex Grossman. I do have my concerns if the Browns eschew the traditional route that most teams take in forming their QB depth chart which typically consist of the Starter, veteran Back up, and then a young developmental guy. If they do draft a Tom Wenning type in the 6th round, can we really go into what may be a very promising season with Hoyer as the starter, the first round QB as the back up and the sixth round guy as the third stringer ?
One reason the Browns may go this route is that their FIRST ROUND QB say: Derek Carr MAY BE EXPECTED TO BEAT OUT Brian Hoyer thus making Brian Hoyer the veteran back up by default . Of course this may not happen for a year or even two years.
I admit, I do like the idea of drafting two QB's. It has worked out relatively well for Washington when they picked up Kirk Cousins in the fourth round and they went into 2012 with two rookie QB's 1-2 on the depth chart. The downside of course; is we won't have anyone to mentor the trio of young QB's that will be on the roster. Either way I think it should be a win-win scenario whichever route they choose. Who knows: they may even choose to carry 4 QB's on the roster?
