The Cardinals are Looking to Move Up in the Draft

BrownsZone: Potential top draft pick Josh Allen has had improbable journey

The Jets' ultimate decision, however, will be contingent upon what Cleveland - which also needs a quarterback - does at No. 1 overall, and if the Giants stay put at No. 2 and pick a successor to Eli Manning or target another position.

Josh Rosen of UCLA is the other top quarterback. And of course there's the Baker Mayfield army, which dismiss his 6-foot frame and believe Oklahoma's swaggering Heisman Trophy victor is the next Brett Favre.

Looking over a collection of 14 notable mock drafts to begin the week of the draft (and omitting trades by Arizona), nobody has fewer than three quarterbacks going off the board before Arizona drafts 15th. Even so, General Manager Steve Keim has always been willing to fortify a strength, as last year's choice of Baker proved.

If not, well, these are the bumbling Browns.

I promise that Josh Allen will not be any good which is why I am also positive the Browns will draft him, it's just what they do.

Dorsey, who as Kanas City's GM got the Chiefs turned around with some solid drafts, has been aggressive in fixing mistakes by previous Cleveland regimes.

The issue will be aired in a non-binding parliamentary debate later this week. After all, this would be a huge gamble given we are in a hung parliament.

Sidebar - what is up with this obsession with Pro days for quarterbacks? Listen, I'm not talking about guys in the second round, either, the third round, or whoever, at any position. Can he throw the ball in the red zone and in tight windows? Can he drive the ball?

If you watched this past season's College Football Playoff, then you saw the Dawgs' Smith all over the field in the semifinal win over Oklahoma and the national title game loss to the Tide. We're a group of hard-working people down there and it's something that I hold near and dear to my heart, just where I come from and the type of people that come from there. But this year's draft, more than any other in recent memory, still has question marks at the top. The rest of the so-called "big five" all have concerns that make them boom-or-bust prospects.

Draft coverage will be carried by NFLN, ESPN, and FOX, and the first pick will be made just after 8 p.m. ET on Thursday.

Dorsey raised some eyebrows last week when he cited the importance of hand size as one of his top criteria in selecting a quarterback. He's not fast (4.81 40 at the combine), but he's strong enough to be an asset in run-blocking and that could help him make an impact in the pros. While Darnold had a better collegiate career, Allen hopes he still is in the running.

Folks, (I say that when I want to sound really professional, I hear Mike Mayock do it all the time on NFL Network) JOSH ALLEN IS TERRIBLE. He is a man of character. Since drafting Couch first in 1999, the Browns have not selected a passer higher than 22nd, relying on a rotating troupe of retreads, draft leftovers, and Clipboard Jesus (Charlie Whitehurst). Eli Manning is 37 and for a struggling team a year ago put together one of his least-productive seasons.

But Browns fans already knew that, because coach Hue Jackson said at the NFL Meetings last month that Mayfield is still legitimately in the conversation at No. 1 overall.
