Hue Jackson: 4 top QB prospects still in play for Browns

"I welcome that, it definitely has to come from the quarterback position", Taylor told the team's official website. The team is expected to select a QB with the first choice.

It's widely expected that, unlike a year ago, the Browns will pick a quarterback this time around. Enter WR Jarvis Landry, who joins Cleveland on a massive contract extension after being one of the league's true slot weapons with the Dolphins. "These guys are working extremely hard", he said at the time. "You should've seen him out there today running gassers. "(But) I think you have to sit and evaluate how he handles the ball, what are the cause of those fumbles?

For the first time in what seems to feel like centuries, the Cleveland Browns will not have a quarterback competition heading into training camp.

The team has also acquired a proven running back in Carlos Hyde that could effectively carry the running game to balance out the offense.

Jackson, though, left no doubt which player shoulders the most responsibility when he named Taylor the starter.

"I'll keep saying this, it starts with the quarterback". He's the one that's spearheading that.

"If they fall in love with their quarterback that they think is their franchise guy for the next 10 years, that has to trump everything else and you have to take your quarterback", Mayock said. That's important. And I'm watching Tyrod reach out to so many different people on this football team. The defense has got to play for the quarterback.

Cleveland Browns free safety Jabrill Peppers (22) looks on during the fourth quarter against the Los Angeles Chargers at StubHub Center. "And he gets that".
