Cleveland Browns: 3 players to watch in the Senior Bowl
Carson Wentz could be just that quarterback to be paired with Braxton Miller in Cleveland. Even without Miller, Wentz could be a franchise player for a franchise desperately searching for one.
Wentz has risen up draft boards since the end of the college football season, and may be the top overall quarterback prospect after today’s game.
The 6-foot-6 quarterback is coming off two consecutive FCS national championships as the starting quarterback at North Dakota State, and is a name rumored to be drawing great interest in Cleveland.
Him coming to Cleveland may scare off some fans who have not seen him play yet, but he is a top prospect for a reason.
Hue Jackson has already met with him, only drawing up further images of Wentz in a Browns uniform next fall.
Today’s game will be a great chance for fans to get a good look at him, and see if he really is worth all this hype. He does have his size going for him, which would be a direct contrast from the situation with Johnny Manziel, who drew constant criticism for being a small quarterback.
Today will be a great test and determine how Browns fans will view the potential selection of Wentz with the second overall pick.
There are those who will defy logic and not want him because of where he went to school, but let’s ignore them for now. He has experience winning championships, even though it is at the FCS level, which is more than most quarterbacks can say.
