The reason is that they have the most options.
Hue Jackson held his introductory press conference for the team's offseason training program Tuesday, telling reporters four quarterback prospects are still in play for them at No. 1: USC's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and Wyoming's Josh Allen. The Ohio native went on to lead Cleveland's division rival to three Super Bowl appearances, winning two of them, and still has his team in position to compete for more. It's widely expected that, unlike previous year, the Browns will pick a quarterback this time around.
Cleveland has had such abysmal fortunes addressing the quarterback position that they are reportedly considering doubling down and drafting two, according to The Ringer.
If the Browns find a QB that's as good at passing as Garrett is at answering questions, they'll be in good shape. Washington did it in 2012, when they traded up to the No. 2 pick to get Robert Griffin III but also grabbed Kirk Cousins in the fourth round. The team is expected to select a QB with the first choice. It is within the realm of possibility that two of the quarterbacks listed above could end up in Cleveland, though I wouldn't exactly bet on it.
There's always a shocker or two on National Football League draft night, but this would be a surprise.
