2012 NFL Draft: The First Robert Griffin III-to-Cleveland Rumor Emerges


It didn’t take long for this one to happen.

Unnamed “league sources” are speculating that the Cleveland Browns are interested in quarterback Robert Griffin III with the fourth overall pick in April’s NFL Draft.

It’s not hard to see why. The Browns have a big question at quarterback in Colt McCoy and have an extra first-round pick that could be utilized should the team want to trade up and secure Griffin.

However, like all reports leading up to the draft, this should be taken with a grain of salt. The Browns are likely interested in Griffin, but they wouldn’t tip their hand this early in the process. That is, of course, unless the Browns want other teams to believe that they are interested in Griffin to stir up talks for that No. 4 pick.

See how this works? Trying to figure out these reports will just end with you huddled in a corner, talking to yourself.
