The Cleveland Browns own the first pick in the fourth round of the NFL Draft later this afternoon and according to a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, multiple teams are trying to trade up into that pick with the hopes of selecting a quarterback.

Just which quarterback teams are targeting, however, remains a mystery. The two biggest names left on the board at that position are Michigan State’s Connor Cook and Ohio State’s Cardale Jones, and there’s no denying that the Browns won’t be drafting either after taking USC’s Cody Kessler in the third round last night.
Jones has a strong arm and championship experience, not to mention fantastic build for the position at 6-foot-5, 250 pounds, but there are questions about his accuracy and consistency. In terms of Cook, his overall lack of leadership skills have raised multiple red flags.
Either way, with the draft’s final day just minutes away, be sure to stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates from Chicago!
