Report: Browns favor Carson Wentz over Jared Goff

While we pretty much know that Laremy Tunsil will be going number one overall to the Tennessee Titans, there is still some question about who will be going number two in the 2016 NFL Draft. The Cleveland Browns need a quarterback and, barring some kind of free agency miracle, they will be looking to the Draft to find him.

For weeks, the Browns have been expected to select former Cal quarterback Jared Goff. After the Senior Bowl in January and the quarterback workouts on Friday at the Combine, however, things may have just changed.

According to SI.com’s Peter King, the Browns are reportedly favoring former North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz over Goff. He talked about how he would be very surprised if Wentz wasn’t the second player selected in April.

“There’s no top pick everyone’s excited about, but I think Laremy Tunsil and Carson Wentz have the best chance of going 1-2 right now…Cleveland’s picking a quarterback unless the Browns steal Brock Osweiler (unlikely) from Denver in free agency. I hear the Browns liked Wentz over Jared Goff in the interview process, but even if true, we’re in mile 3 of the 26.2-mile draft-process marathon.”

Right now, this is all just speculation, but the Browns are likely taking a quarterback in April. Even if they do stick with Goff, Wentz is still expected to be scooped up early in the first round, if not by the Dallas Cowboys as No. 4.

We are still a little less than two months away from the Draft, but things have already been heated up to the max.
