NFL Draft: Browns' owner reportedly stumping for QB at No. 1

Cleveland goes through QBs like Taylor Swift goes through boyfriends, so why would it be a surprise if they drafted one at No. 1?

Robert Griffin III, Josh McCown, Brian Hoyer, Jason Campbell, Brandon Weeden, Colt McCoy, Brady Quinn, Derek Anderson, Charle Frye, Trent Dilfer, Jeff Garcia, Kelly Holcomb, Tim Couch and Doug Peterson.

All of those quarterbacks have started games for the Cleveland Browns since the turn of the century. Four of those they drafted in the first round. Not one of them started games in more than three consecutive seasons for them.

But it appears owner Jimmy Haslam might want to roll the dice again.

CBS Sports reported Friday that while the Browns' coaches continue to prefer Texas A&M defensive standout Myles Garrett with the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft, Haslam "badly wants a QB."

Mitchell Trubisky is the name tossed in here, but that could be interchangeable. Deshaun Watson or Patrick Mahomes could be possibilities.

However, the point isn't who they are looking at, it's that they are looking to potentially reach for a QB at No. 1 overall when they have Garrett at their fingertips.

So the question here is does Haslam let coach Hue Jackson do what he wants or does he step in and force his hand at No. 1? Either way, it's no surprise that the Browns holding the top pick appears likely to end in drama.
