The Cleveland Browns may be making another crazy situation at the quarterback position. According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Browns like Jared Goff more than Carson Wentz of North Dakota State University.
If the Browns take a QB at 2nd overall, Goff is very likely the pick. Offensive staff loves him

In fact, Goff has many champions within the Browns’ organization and although a preponderance of mock drafts will show Wentz being selected with the second-overall pick, I have continued to hear that Goff is actually very well positioned to be Cleveland’s guy. There are certainly some splits within the organization — as is almost always the case in these situations. There are very few once-in-a-generation quarterback prospects to unite an entire franchise in the draft process.
Fact is, many of the Browns scouts, according to numerous league sources, prefer Wentz. But in that organization — one that just dispatched a half-dozen scouts, many of them very experienced and directly involved in the draft process just three weeks before it begins — having the scouts in your corner is probably a bad thing.
