Todd McShay’s draft advice for the Cleveland Browns is re-sign Brian Hoyer

hoyerLast year the Cleveland Browns drafted Justin Gilbert and Johnny Manziel in the first round and let’s face it, that did not work.  Manziel is currently in a rehab center, and who knows if Justin Gilbert will ever grow up.  The Browns’ best solution at quarterback, even if it isn’t an ideal one, is to re-sign Brian Hoyer and hope Johnny Manziel develops, according to Todd McShay.

McShay on a conference call Feb. 23 said he does not see the Browns trading up for Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, who is not expected to get past the New York Jets with the sixth pick. The Browns pick 12th and 19th in the first round.

“Your guess is as good as mine,” the ESPN analyst said when asked what the Browns should do if they don’t trade up for a quarterback. “I love Connor Shaw. He has the chance to develop into a good backup, but he’s not the answer.

I too agree Brian Hoyer needs to be re-signed, but if the Browns fail to do it there will be teams knocking at the door for him.
