With the 4th pick in the 2014 AA Writers’ Draft the Cleveland Browns select…

4. Cleveland Browns
Blake Bortles
QB, UCF

Having missed out on RGIII two years ago, I think there is no doubt that the franchise believes it will have to trade up to get The One in the form of Bridgewater or Manziel this year. The good news is that they only have to move up two spots to the Rams, who want to trade down as always. But, for the purposes of this draft, Cleveland is left with another QBOTF candidate, albeit one that will need a bit more time to make a major impact. That has to be worrisome for whoever will be Cleveland’s head coach next year after team’s previous staff was jettisoned after just one season, but it’s their best shot.

    Bortles may b the guy and he may not b. At least they are trying, which is more than I can say for the chiefs, its been 30 yrs sinse they drafted a QB in the 1st rd.

      And every time they drafted one in the first round he sucked. We have never been able to develop a first round Quarterback since I have been a fan and I really think we have a curse where that is concerned and really think Alex Smith can be our quarterback for the next 4 or 5 years.

        How can you succeed, if you don’t try? Our team don’t even try. Its been 30 years sinse they tried. They can’t b that scared.
