The Cleveland Browns need a long-term solution for the quarterback position. That solution could very well be Derek Carr come draft day. The Browns plan on starting Brian Hoyer this season and he could help the team win.
But he is probably not the long term solution in Cleveland, unless he unleashes Tom Brady like numbers this season. Carr however, fits Kyle Shanahan’s offense better than any other QB in the draft.
Carr ran up some impressive numbers at Fresno State and believe it or not, he is the most ready for the NFL. Carr has the tangibles a guy like Shanahan likes.
He has quick feet and a big arm. The Browns probably wouldn’t have to use a top pick in the upcoming draft to get Carr, they may even be able to get him with the 35th pick on the 2014 NFL draft.
Taking Carr might not be the popular choice among fans, but it is the most sensible choice after looking at all the available quarterbacks in the up-coming draft.
Cleveland could very well end up drafting Carr, and he could learn from Hoyer, who learned from Brady. No sense throwing him to the wolves in his rookie season.
There is no QB in the upcoming draft that is capable of jumping in as the starter. Carr is close, but he would do even better learning from Hoyer.
I look for the Cleveland Browns to draft Derek Carr come draft day.
