According to Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, the Cleveland Browns love former West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith in this year’s draft.  They didn’t expect him to be available when they go on the board with the sixth pick, but now that the Chiefs traded for Alex Smith, they might be able to snatch him up. I don’t think the new Browns regime believes they have their quarterback of the future on their current roster.  If they love Smith enough, I wouldn’t be surprised if they take him in the first round.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();

  • Please tell me this is a joke.
  • OK, who has the T-P? I just pooped myself reading the Brown's might draft QB Geno Smith. IF he's not another Andrew Luck, don't waste the pick on a QB!
  • Evidently no one on the new staff saw his bowl game. He was absolutely terrible. Lombardi, you still don't know sh#t.
  • It's not a joke. It's a valid logical suggestion. Many experts believe Smith has what it takes to be a top NFL quarterback.
    If Smith is available at #6 the Browns would be crazy to pass on him.
    The newer rookie cap ceiling makes it a must pick if he's available.
