Peter King On Browns, McCarron, Tannehill

Here’s the latest from Peter King of The MMQB:

  • The Browns have four picks in the top 35 of this year’s draft, but coach Hue Jackson is still pushing for the team to acquire A.J. McCarron, King hears. If the team does go for McCarron in March, the plan would be for the team to also draft a rookie quarterback to be groomed behind him. The Browns, of course, nearly landed McCarron before last year’s trade deadline before a paperwork snag tanked the deal. One has to wonder if McCarron would be skeptical about the Browns’ level of commitment to him in such a scenario, particularly after seeing how Mike Glennon‘s arrangement worked out with the Bears. Then again, McCarron might be faced with a similar scenario with any team that shows interest him.
  • It has been said that the Dolphins are committed to Ryan Tannehill at quarterback, but King is not convinced after speaking with executives at the combine. Miami is look at QBs at No. 11 overall and several people who spoke with King believe they’ll select a signal caller there. Tannehill has missed the last 19 Dolphins games with back-to-back ACL tears.
  • After speaking with several GMs, scouts, and coaches, this is King’s rough consensus for the top ten player’s in the draft: Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, USC quarterback Sam Darnold, North Carolina State edge rusher Bradley Chubb, Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen, Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson, Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick, Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward, and Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith.

    There’s a TON of FA qb’s coming on the market. AJ is t exactly gonna corner the market so the Brownies SHOULD be able to land him as their “bridge” qb with all that &$ they have

    • sufferfortribe

      If not a QB after that, maybe Bradley Chubb……or Denzel Ward?

    Think the Browns could move up from #4 to #2 and get a quarterback and Barkley? They have plenty of picks and the Giants can still get a quarterback

      The QBs suck I won’t waste my time on these Ryan leafs in this years draft, so take Barkley than at #4 take Fitzpatrick

    Browns will trade the number 1 pick to the Cardinals for every pick they have in the draft.
    Another Ricky Williams type trade!
