Cleveland Browns must be on to something that the rest of the NFL isn't because for some crazy reason they didn't interview any quarterbacks at the NFL Combine.

Usually in any field if you're given 60 opportunities to interview people you would pick at least one that is related to your most important need.

The Browns need a QB desperately for the 2014 NFL season, but for some reason they failed to formally interview any of the draft QB prospects at the combine.

So was their decision really as crazy as it sounds? Apparently not so much.

NFL Combine interviews are only 15-minute meetings in which teams find it hard to develop an understanding with players.

They act as more of a touching base with a players rather than an opportunity to delve into their soul.

A more thorough interview is needed to gain an understanding on who a team such as the Browns needs to become their face of the franchise.

As Yahoo Sports reported, Browns GM Ray Farmer believes more time is needed to gain a true understanding of the draft prospects.

"You start to get a better feel for who the person is," Farmer said. "I've always been told that your talent may get you places but if your character can't keep you there, you'll fail. [Former NFL head coach] Herm Edwards always says 'it's not always the skill, it's the will.' They can lose some standing in the pecking order depending on the type of people they are."
