The Cleveland Browns have been on the clock for the 2018 NFL Draft for more than three months now, but head coach Hue Jackson said recently that the team has no idea who they are taking with the top overall pick. According to one report, it will definitely be a quarterback.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports has been told that the Browns are trying to decide between Sam Darnold and Josh Allen. While there has been talk that Cleveland could use the No. 1 pick on a player like NC State defensive end Bradley Chubb and wait until No. 4 to take a QB since the draft is so deep at the position, La Canfora says it is looking like the first three picks will all be passers.
Shurmur said Monday he doesn’t know how long Beckham plans to stay with the Giants during the rest of the offseason program.
“I’m not overthinking this,” Shurmur said. “This is the first day of work, this is the first opportunity for all of us to be here together and I think it’s important that Odell is here. I’m looking forward to him getting one day better by being here. I’m looking forward to him inspiring some of his teammates to get better because he’s here and he’s a terrific player. I think we can all learn from one another.”
The Spring League—”a developmental league that provides opportunities for players who are not on NFL rosters but hope to be,” per Seifert—shared highlights from Manziel’s performance:
After The Spring League’s next set of games April 12, Manziel has about a month until the Canadian Football League’s training camps open for rookies May 16. He’s previously said that if he doesn’t receive interest in the NFL, he would commit to play at least two years in the CFL.
If he goes that route, it would be with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who own his CFL rights. For the time being, however, Manziel was trying to prove he could be reliable and consistent in both his preparation and performance.
“The message that I’m sending is showing up every day and going to meetings,” he said. “Being engaged in everything that is going on during practice and in the game. I can’t control what is going on [with NFL teams’ interests], and I don’t know what’s going on in NFL meetings. If that’s the case, if the NFL is something that pops up, cool. If not, I’m going to work until I get back there. We’ll see how things play out.”
