Trevone Boykin represents one of the finest dual-threat quarterbacks in the nation, possessing running and passing ability in equal measure. Last season he became only the third player to average at least 300 yards passing and 50 yards rushing per game in a season. The other two? Robert Griffin III and Johnny Manziel.
Boykin is a fun player to evaluate because of his instinctive playmaking skills as both a runner and thrower, but whether or not he turns into a consistent passer is the key to his NFL projection. – CBS Sports
Boykin was the Big 12 offensive player of the year during a season that included a seven touchdown passing game against Texas Tech, and his Horned Frogs will likely start the upcoming season ranked No. 2.
When you talk about Boykin, think Michael Vick without the dog issues. While the Browns may not be interested in Boykin if they view him as a Manziel clone, Boykin’s measurables are none the less spectacular.

There are some interesting possibilities with regard to the quarterback class coming into the 2016 NFL Draft. The Browns relative interest will be based, of course, on the needs and preferences of those drafting ahead of them.
However, based upon the quarterback drafts over the past few years, the teams that really needed quarterbacks have filled those needs, and many of the older quarterbacks, like Peyton Manning, have players ready to step in.
If this is the case, the Browns may benefit from the lack of need from other teams in the NFL and may be able to finally find their franchise quarterback.
If the Browns were to select a quarterback in the 2016 NFL Draft, who should they take?
