Cleveland Browns coach says he has found his starting quarterback

Published Add your comment

The Cleveland Browns are widely expected to draft a quarterback with one of their 10 selections in the upcoming draft. However, Browns fans shouldn't expect them to be starting any football games this fall.

At least that is according to head coach, Mike Pettine who recently addressed his quarterback issues in USA Today.

“There will be competition, but I think it will be very difficult, based on my evaluation of this year’s draft class, it will be very difficult for anyone in this draft class to come in and beat [Hoyer] out. I really believe that,” Pettine said.

Whether Pettine genuinely believes that Hoyer can be the starting quarterback that the Browns are looking for or if he is simply trying to stoke up some competition between Hoyer and the incoming rookie remains to be seen.

Many mock drafts have predicted that the Browns will select a passer who can be competitive at the bottom of the first round or at the beginning of the second.

Hoyer did play well last season before suffering an injury so a quarterback battle is likely to be competitive. However the longer the Browns wait, the more likely that Hoyer will be their key guy come fall.
