Cleveland Browns: What should the Browns do at QB?

Draft a QB in 2018 NFL Draft
This, in my humble opinion, would be the best option. The 2017 NFL Draft class is weak on when it comes to quarterback talent and no one shows promise as someone who can be “the guy”, especially in Cleveland where talent isn’t abundant. The Cleveland Browns’ staff would be fools to take one of them with either of the two two top twelve picks in this year’s draft. The goal this year should be focused on building up the defense in a ridiculously strong defensive talented draft.
The 2018 NFL Draft class however, will be the one where teams will likely be able to find a franchise quarterback. Some of the hot names that are already be leading that list will be guys like Sam Darnold from USC, Josh Rosen from UCLA, Baker Mayfield from Oklahoma and Josh Allen from Wyoming.
The Browns will most likely end up with another top ten draft pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, which could be used to snag one of these top quarterbacks who have all piqued the interest of scouts at the next level.
The main point I want all Browns fans to know is that while the Browns have struggled over the years to find a franchise quarterback, they don’t just grow on trees. Even if the team took a top flight guy this year or traded for either Kirk Cousins or Jimmy Garoppolo, it would only further hurt the franchise.

The Browns need to get some help on the roster on all sides of the ball and they should be focusing on that more than trying so hard to find the franchise quarterback so badly. So take a deep breath fellow Browns fans. We knew this was going to be a process, we just need to trust it.
