With the No. 6 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns could go in one of many directions considering how many team needs they have–especially when it comes to the quarterback position. This year’s draft class may not have a standout quarterback like previous years, but there are still plenty of talented quarterbacks worthy of being taken in the first round.
One quarterback the Browns may be interested in–Geno Smith of West Virginia.
There’s a good chance Smith will be available for Cleveland to take at No. 6 and with all of the uncertainty surrounding Brandon Weeden–it may be wise for the team to strongly consider using their first-round pick on him. Weeden deserves some credit for his struggles during the 2012 season as a rookie considering the Browns didn’t provide him with the best of weapons on offense, but the last thing they want to see happen is have things not work out in the future and they find themselves in need of another quarterback.
By drafting a quarterback like Smith–they would at least have a backup option.
Cleveland has scheduled a private workout for Smith this weekend and it should be interesting to see if he looks as impressive as he has over the last couple of months. There’s only a few weeks left before the Browns will have to decide whether Smith is worth taking if he’s available at No. 6, but let’s see how the weekend goes first before making any assumptions.
