Mike Florio has written in an article for the Sporting News that of the top four quarterbacks taken in the 2010 NFL Draft, Colt McCoy of the Cleveland Browns could end up being the best of them all. Sam Bradford has to deal with, well, just being on the St. Louis Rams, while there are a million questions surrounding Tim Tebow. As for Jimmy Clausen, his situation in Carolina might seem ideal, but the addition of quarterback Tony Pike has to say something about what the Panthers might ultimately think of him.
As for Colt McCoy, as Florio discusses, he comes into a good situation in Cleveland. The article mentions that he comes into a low pressure situation without expectations, but tell that to him if Browns fans are calling his name if the team struggles early next season. Not to mention the microscope he will be under once he does finally take the starting job in Cleveland. This is a bottle-throwing, quarterback-booing kind of city, but I’ll attempt to justify that by mentioning 46 frustrating years without a Browns championship.
I’d say McCoy and Clausen have fallen into the best situations, but the edge could go to McCoy, only if the current front office establishes some sort of consistency. The Browns run through front offices and coaching staffs as if that’s actually how teams are supposed to operate, so if the stability is there from the front office and coaching staff, good things could be ahead for McCoy and the Browns.
