    In Cleveland, talk of Colt McCoy this year and Matt Barkley next year

    Music to my ears, but I still think that Holmgren has his eye on Weeden at the top of the 2nd round:
    Itís a sad thing for a fan base to be thinking ahead to the first overall pick in an NFL draft thatís 13 months away, but in Cleveland thereís already talk that the best option for a Browns franchise quarterback may be USCís Matt Barkley in the 2013 draft.

    The Browns have had a Top 7 pick in the first round for four years in a row, by virtue of going either 4-12 or 5-11 each of the last four years, and unless they take Texas A&Mís Ryan Tannehill this year, they wonít have used any of those Top 7 picks on quarterbacks. Even though they need a quarterback. So Steve Doerschuk of the Canton Repository notes that that with the Browns missing out on trading up for Robert Griffin III, and not signing a free agent quarterback, it may be down to doing the best they can to build around Colt McCoy this year, with an eye toward drafting Barkley next year if things donít work out with McCoy.

    Itís obviously way too soon to say how next yearís NFL draft will play out, but Barkley will head into the 2012 college football season as the early favorite to be the top pick. And the Browns obviously hope McCoy will turn out to be a good starting quarterback who can lead them to more than five wins for the first time since 2007.

    But in this offseasonís game of quarterback musical chairs, the Browns look like theyíre going to be left standing when the music stops. And that would leave them stuck with what they have this year, and hoping things turn out differently next year.

    Holmgren has said many times that real QB evaluations start between games 32 and 40. That should come sometime this year for McCoy. They're going to continue putting talent around him and see how he fares.

    Or they don't want us trading ahead of them so they put a rumor out.

    Regardless of whether McCoy is QB or they draft Weeden, Tannehill, etc, the Browns desperately need playmakers on offense. Josh Cribbs is the only one they have and even he should not be a starting WR. Greg Little dropped a huge amount of passes last season and Massaquoi is average. Also have no speed at RB. Evan Moore at TE though is an interesting prospect.

    Need to get some playmakers on offense before they can really hope to improve. Justin Blackmon would be a good start though.
