Coaches are coming forward from the college ranks, they are saying Brandon Weeden the Browns second pick in the NFL draft may not be able to handle the pressure of the NFL pass rush. The Cleveland Browns may have picked a guy that could panic when the pocket starts to collapse. Colt McCoy faced an awful lot of pressure last year and the NFL teams that will play the Browns this season know the Browns offensive line may have some trouble against the pass. In the College ranks Weeden seemed to have some trouble when he faced lots of pressure.
The Cleveland Browns had their quarterbacks sacked 39 times last season. Remember Brandon Weeden left minor league baseball due to shoulder issues. If Weeden take a lot of hits one has to wonder if his NFL career will yield many years of service, Weeden is already 28 years old. Colt McCoy may be the guy the Cleveland Browns turn to if Weeden has trouble handling the pressures of NFL football. The game if much faster in the NFL than it was on college. Making the transition might not be as easy as Weeden and the Cleveland Browns think. Now that reports are coming out from coaches that faced Weeden in College, you can bank on the fact the teams the Cleveland Browns face this season will be bringing it to Weeden and the Browns. Lets just hope this guy can take the hits that are coming. Believe me they are coming….
