Perhaps as much as any other team, the Browns are expected to take a quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft.
According to a published report, there’s sentiment in league circles that Cleveland has zeroed in on one particular passing prospect.
Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman reports the Browns “love” Fresno State’s Derek Carr and that “many in football” believe Cleveland will take him with the second of their two first-round picks (No. 26).
PFT’s most recent mock draft has Carr headed to Cleveland, but at No. 4, not No. 26.
Carr, like numerous other QB prospects, has worked out for Cleveland.
Were the Browns to take Carr with their second first-round pick, it would mark the third time in seven years in which they had used the latter of two No. 1 selections on a quarterback. They took Brady Quinn and Brandon Weeden 22nd overall in 2007 and 2012, respectively.
