The Cleveland Browns need to give DeShone Kizer time to develop into an NFL quarterback in 2017 instead of forcing him to play right away.
It’s only May 3, yet Cleveland Browns fans are already prepared for passionate debates on the starting quarterback position.
This will continue to happen until the Browns find a franchise quarterback, or simply a player who can start all 16 games in any given season.
The search continues in 2017 with Cody Kessler serving as the likely favorite to open the season as the starter, but DeShone Kizer has entered the debate after being drafted by the Browns with the No. 52 overall pick in last week’s NFL Draft.
Both Sashi Brown and Hue Jackson have talked about being patient with Kizer, but that plan must be followed throughout the coming months, unless the team wants to see another young quarterback put on the field before he is ready.
Brown and Jackson are new to Cleveland, but fans know how much damage can be done by rushing a young quarterback onto the field. Letting Kizer sit for an entire season could do wonders for his development as an NFL quarterback.
Let’s take a look at that and more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
