The 2015 NFL rumor season is upon us and the Browns with their two first round picks are sure to be at the heart of rumor and speculation. It’s also no surprise on the heels of a Johnny Manziel rehab revelation that the speculation would shift into another gear entirely. It goes with the territory when you’ve got two bullets in your gun while everyone else only has one. In this Insider Buzz video from Bleacher Report, Jason Cole is already saying that the Browns could move up for Marcus Mariota or Jameis Winston. That’s obviously not saying a lot to say that the Browns might try and use their draft leverage to draft one of the best quarterbacks available, but Cole does give us a little bit more. He indicates that the Browns have Mariota ahead of Jameis Winston based on what he’s hearing. The only question is how much ahead and how highly do they think of Mariota overall?
We’ll continually bring this stuff to your attention, but we’ll also be trying to make some sense of it all as things move along to the combine and to the draft itself.
It’s a later start than we normally get here in Cleveland Browns territory, but welcome to draft rumor season, folks.
