This offseason the Browns released Derek Anderson and traded Brady Quinn while bringing in Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace.
Because of those moves, some folks have been predicting the Browns will take a quarterback. That may be the case but, according to Michael Lombardi of the National Football Post, it won't be a quarterback.
I'm told the Browns are not going to pick a quarterback, that they're going to draft defense with their first pick. In spite of Jon Gruden's relationship with Mike Holmgren and his love of Clausen, the Browns are not going quarterback early.
This meshes with some recent reports that the Browns might target Colt McCoy at the beginning of the second round. It also meshes with other predictions of the Browns taking Eric Berry or Joe Haden.
Jake Delhomme, as awful as he's been, could be a serviceable quarterback in 2010 allowing the Browns to pass on a first round quarterback.
