Prior to the Cleveland Browns front office frantically typing “Indianapolis, IN” into their Garmin Nuvi, head coach Pat Shurmur took a few minutes with the local media to discuss what the next few days of the NFL combine could provide.

With the team rumored to be in the mix for quarterback Robert Griffin III, running back Trent Richardson and a litany of other impact players, Shurmur was quick to dismiss the notion that the team has decided on any one player with whom they would select with their fourth-overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

“I think what happens is, there’s a lot that gets said and written at this time and it’s very interesting to everyone,” Shurmur stated. “Folks are making predictions while we’re still gathering information.  That’s the important part. That’s the exciting thing about the Combine.”

When not discussing would-be draftees, Shurmur gave another vote of confidence for the team’s current quarterback Colt McCoy, stating that, with work, the former Longhorn could be the player to help the Cleveland Browns win football games. Fully recovered from the concussion that derailed the end of his season, McCoy is ready for his first full offseason with the ability to contact his team.

The Browns have yet to meet Griffin III who has recently decided to switch his pro day to the day before likely first-overall selection in quarterback Andrew Luck. The two were originally slated to work out on the same day.
