One of the seemingly accepted truths of the 2016 NFL Draft is that with the second pick, the Browns are going to take a quarterback.
But there’s a chance they might not take anyone.
According to Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, there’s “more and more smoke” that the Browns are willing to find their quarterback in the second round, and are willing to move down from the second spot.
Of course, it’s all smoke these days, with two weeks and change before the draft. And with a new Browns management team in place that has no background on draft weekend, it’s impossible to gauge their intentions based on track record.
The Eagles seem intent on finding their next quarterback of the future, and are stuck behind several quarterback-needy teams, so they might be inclined to do something.
But none of the teams at the top of the draft need one more than the Browns, regardless the addition of Robert Griffin III.
