ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. said Brandon Weeden may have been the No. 1 quarterback in the draft if he came out this year.
Last year, Weeden was the fourth quarterback selected behind Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Ryan Tannehill. This year's crop is much weaker. "There's not one that there's consensus on. So it's possible he could've been the first quarterback taken this year," Kiper said. "You look at Geno Smith and Matt Barkley and Brandon Weeden, it would've been a tough call. It would've been a tough, tough call." The Browns are likely to bring in competition at quarterback, but it's not expected to be via the No. 6 overall pick.
