What exactly makes the perfect quarterback? Well the Cleveland Browns, presumably tired of their lack of success in that department have ordered a report to find out.

The report, which according to Sal Paolantonio of ESPN cost $100,000 was ordered when Joe Banner was the team president but was only recently concluded after Banner had left the team.

ProFootballTalk reported that the report: "entailed a great deal of research into which qualities go into success at the most important position in football"

It remains unclear exactly what the Browns investigated but my guess is that a lot of advanced statistics and intangible qualities are involved. However, the upshot of this report is that the Browns believe that Teddy Bridgewater is the best quarterback of the current crop.

What remains to be seen however, is whether Browns GM, Ray Farmer will take the report into account when making the decisions in his first draft as general manager.

The Browns do have a number of picks in this year draft, including two in the first round and so will have plenty of chances to grab the quarterback that the numbers say is going to deliver them a title.

One thing is for sure, they can't be much worse than the ones they've previously picked.

Who do you think the Browns should draft? Let us know in the comments.
