You can find that type of player at No. 65 and that player will come relatively cheap. The Browns sent a third-round pick to Buffalo for Taylor, and fourth- and seventh-round picks to Miami for Landry. Landry and the Browns are working on a new contract, according to Schefter. But the fact is Haslam set out the game plan when he put Brown in charge.
And for the crowd saying the Browns still need to draft a quarterback first overall: Dorsey is so meticulous at finding the right quarterback that he surrendered two first rounders so the Kansas City Chiefs could trade up and get Patrick Mahomes a year ago. He isn't one of the best quarterbacks in the National Football League, but Taylor is a guy that can at least hold down the quarterback position while the Browns develop the gunslinger they select with either the first- or fourth-overall pick in this April's draft.
Kizer was going to have to earn a spot with the Browns, and he'll be in a similar situation with the Packers, who were forced to start Brett Hundley nine games last season after Rodgers broke his collarbone.
Smith had 36 catches for 430 yards and two touchdowns in one season in Philadelphia. They can finally turn to a steady quarterback who should be entering the prime of his powers.
Cousins, who has 81 touchdown passes and a 97.5 passer rating over the last three years, can provide it. Much like the Browns, we haven't had a good, well-established quarterback in a very long time. The last 6 quarterbacks taken with the number one pick are Jared Goff, Jameis Winston, Andrew Luck, Cam Newton, Sam Bradford, and Matthew Stafford. 5 of them have made the pro bowl at least one time and the only exception is Sam Bradford, who has been a solid starter when he is not injured.
For whatever reason, the Bills were looking to move on from Taylor, which wasn't a big secret around the league, so it's impressive GM Brandon Beane was able to get a draft pick in return for a lame duck quarterback. It may not be as great as you think.
Dorsey now can build on these moves with all those picks in the first two rounds of the draft. Hue Jackson will screw up any player the Browns pick, except Josh Allen because he's overhyped and will bust out no matter what. As an organization, you have to think about the future. The NBA team is finally reaping the benefits of their long rebuild this year, likely bound for the playoffs with a strong young core. He's a three-down running back, who will contribute right away for any team. He can catch the ball effectively, which he did at Penn State and he did at the Combine. Maybe that will change in Cleveland, but that's how it went down during his time in Buffalo. He also rushed for 427 yards and four TDs in 2017, leaving him with 1,711 yards since entering the National Football League in 2011.
But now that the 49ers finished their Jimmy Garoppolo contract, no team is in the Browns' stratosphere as far as cap space.
Yes, the Cleveland Browns. Therefore, the crowd that wants to get rid of Taylor is sick of the mediocrity at the position and believe that if he would have taken more chances on some throws downfield, we would have been even better. "But I'm excited by the moves [general manager] John [Dorsey] made".
