The Browns seem comfortable with the guys currently on the roster, after passing on Mitchell Trubisky and Deshaun Watson in the draft. They did take DeShone Kizer in the second round, but no one expects him to be the starter in Week 1. He’ll compete with Cody Kessler, Brock Osweiler and Kevin Hogan with the best player winning the job.
Unfortunately, none of those guys has a particularly stacked NFL track record. Kessler had the best 2016 season, but that was in extremely limited action. The Browns know what they have in Osweiler, but there’s a reason Houston gave up a second-round pick to dump his contract.
Although it’s unlikely, the best scenario would be Kizer playing the way he did for Notre Dame in 2015 and unequivocally winning the starting gig in camp. He has all the tools you look for in an NFL quarterback, but inconsistency and accuracy problems have doomed him.
