The Browns may end up taking Josh Allen with the No. 1 overall pick, but they are doing their due diligence on all four of the top quarterbacks. After privately working them out, the Browns now are bringing all four in for pre-draft visits.

Baker Mayfield arrives in Cleveland tonight, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports, with the other top quarterbacks following.

“That’s another piece of information for us,” Browns coach Hue Jackson said last week of the pre-draft visits, via Cabot. “That’s probably the last piece of the process for us to bring them to campus and have an opportunity to sit down with them in a different environment and talk through the things. But we will discuss how we all felt since the trip. But that will be the final piece for us.”

The Oklahoma quarterback will visit the team facility Tuesday. The Browns will host Sam Darnold, Allen and Josh Rosen in the coming days. Jackson said last week Mayfield “no doubt” was in the mix for the No. 1 overall choice, adding the Heisman Trophy winner impressed the Browns with his leadership when he worked out for them last week.

Mayfield visits the Jets and Giants later this week, the New York Daily News reports.

  1. no matter who the browns get let them sit and don’t throw them to the wolves and don’t pull them after every interception either…

    =================================================================================

    Well, Kizer led the league in INT’s last season, with 22, next closest had 16 INT’s.

    If they pulled Kizer after every INT, no way he could have led the league in them.

    He played 15 of their 16 games so they weren’t pulling him even though he threw a ton of INT’s.

    They gave him a LONG leash. He barely completed passes, very low completion percentage, very low QB rating, a lot of INT’s and yet they kept him out there.

    They threw him to the wolves and when the wolves were tearing him apart they were like “nah, you’re good, stay out there young fella”.

  3. Here’s my prediction. 3 of the 4 QBs make in the league. The 4th is the one Cleveland takes.

  4. He should tank the tryout to avert a career ending mistake. I don’t blame anyone for not wanting to play for Cleveland. History of colossal failure. QBs die in Cleveland. Long list of QBs with lots of potential before they wound up in Cleveland. He might be a jerk for not wanting to play there, but he’ll play – and for somebody that will be less likely to kill his career.

  5. I’m not sold on Mayfield but he seems like the only QB with the moxie to actually have a chance of succeeding with the Browns. Absolutely is not worth the #1 pick in the draft though.

  6. Baker Mayfield at 4, Saquon Barkley or Bradley Chubb at 1.

    Mayfield has the attitude to succeed. I love his heart and accuracy throwing the football. He is going to be great wherever he goes.

  7. I’m not sold on Mayfield but he seems like the only QB with the moxie to actually have a chance of succeeding with the Browns.

    Didn’t Johnny Football have moxie too? What happened there?

  8. If they think they are getting Allen/Darnold at 1 and Barkley at 4, they are dreaming.

    The Giants will take Barkley if the Browns pass.

    So, that leaves the Giants with a trade partner, if the Browns draft the RB.

    Therefore, the Browns, will be ‘stuck’ with a choice that involves Rosen/Mayfield or Rosen/Allen.

    I don’t think they’re comfortable with Rosen which would leave Mayfield.

    So, draft your QB1 and there will be an all world Lb’r or Guard at 4. Doesn’t matter which of the 4, as long as you love him. If not, pass on all of them or trade out.

    Not rocket science. Take care of the most important position first, especially when you’re the one shuffling the cards.

  9. Cleveland say it ain’t so, don’t draft Mayfield, he is Johnny Manziel part 2, it will be deja-vu all over again.

    I did hear today from a reputable NFL source that said the Browns will select Josh Allen at #1.
