Report: Browns Wanted Kendall Wright, Told McCoy They Wouldn't Draft QB
The Cleveland Browns reportedly told Colt McCoy that they were not going to draft a quarterback in the first round before drafting Brandon Weeden, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
The Browns had their eye on Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright with their No. 22 overall pick, according to reports. However, with Robert Griffin's favorite target off the board, they decided that Oklahoma State record setting quarterback Weeden was their best choice.
"We liked Kendall and there were a couple of guys that we liked, but a quarterback is a quarterback, which I think that outweighs everything, at least in our opinion,'' said Tom Heckert, Browns general manager.
