Merry Draftmas! I don’t know about your town, but here in Cleveland, the NFL Draft Talk starts around Thanksgiving, permeates every college football game played during Bowl Season and continues through tomorrow. We over-analyze ever player, statistic, combine exercise, Wunderlick test score, and physical measurement. (Hand Size Matters!)

Next, we listen to every interview available, soak up any social media comments and proceed to dissect the character and intent of every player. We use these things to promote the guy we like and to destroy the guy we don’t. We compare them all to former players in an attempt to make our case For or Against drafting them. And we all behave as if our opinion means something. HA!

Cleveland Browns Mock Draft: QB Scenarios

As usual, the sports talk is all about the NFL Draft here in Cleveland. The biggest question mark on this team is the quarterback and has been for quite a few years. With picks 1 and 4 in the first round, fans are banking on the team being able to finally settle this issue and get the franchise quarterback they’ve been calling for since, frankly, 1999.

I’ve seen Mock Drafts from the experts with no less than six different QBs being taken first overall. The reality of the situation is that it’s not simply a matter of what skills and attributes these college QBs bring to the table. It’s also incredibly important to look at the make-up of the team, the positions of need, and how all of these things are addressed during free agency.

So, with that in mind, my mock draft is simply the two first-round picks based on which Free Agent QB the Browns are able to sign.
