DeShone Kizer takes first-team reps, but “nothing’s changed” in Browns’ QB competition

Unlike No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett, rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer did get first-team reps Tuesday. But coach Hue Jackson said nothing has changed with the Browns quarterback situation.

Cody Kessler lined up first, Brock Osweiler second, Kizer third and Kevin Hogan fourth.

“That’s the way it’s been since OTAs have started,” Jackson said, via Pat McManamon of ESPN. “You guys just had an opportunity to see it. I think the players will tell you nothing has changed. We’re just mixing and matching and giving guys opportunities.

“As I told you, I have to find out about these guys. That’s what I’m going to do over these next couple days before we go to training camp and as we get into training camp.”

The Browns expect to go to training camp without a depth chart, though, with all four quarterbacks in competition for the starting job.

    As a close friend to Kizer, we believe that he is better than Dak already.

    Apparently the other three quarterbacks needed a day off or have dead arm syndrome because there is no way Kizer should be taking first team reps.

    The only thing he should be taking is trash from the north concourse concession to the dumpster.

    the next dame bust! he will be lucky to have a Brady Quinn career and is just another product of the dame hype machine.

    I refer back to what every responsible parent tells their child…MAKE HIM EARN EVERYTHING HE GETS! Just giving him first team reps is damaging in the long run. Make the talented young man earn every bit of success he has. Don’t just hand it to him.

    As a close friend to Brock…we beleive he might still suck.

    As a close friend to none of them I can say that the Browns still don’t have a damn QB

    I am willing to bet that the only place one of these QB’s gets drafted in Fantasy Football is in Cleveland itself.

    Keizer may or may not end up being good, but I am wondering what would possess someone to write something like this after an otherwise innocuous article.

    This is a great sign that Kizer is apparently not overwhelmed getting in and out of the huddle, earned the right for first team reps by his work ethic and is a quick study.

    I expect Osweiller to win the job by outplaying Kessler or him getting hurt before the opener. It then is just a matter of when to play Kizer depending on how Osweiller does.

    Kiser should do good in practice then suck if he gets in a game, just like at ND.
