Hue Jackson already names Tyrod Taylor starting QB for 2018

Tyrod Taylor

If the Cleveland Browns draft a quarterback with one of the two picks they have in the top four of the upcoming NFL Draft, the rookie will not be competing for a starting job this summer.

While speaking with reporters on Thursday, Browns head coach Hue Jackson already named Tyrod Taylor his starting quarterback for 2018.

That’s not exactly a surprise, as the Browns appear committed to contending next season and acquired Taylor from the Buffalo Bills as a means of gaining stability at the most important position on the field. If Cleveland ends up taking one of the QBs in this year’s deep class, they won’t have to rush the player onto the field like they did with DeShone Kizer and so many others before him.

On paper, we have already named the Browns one of our most improved teams of the early offseason. New general manager John Dorsey clearly is not thinking about just winning a handful of games in 2018, otherwise he would not have acquired players like Jarvis Landry, Carlos Hyde, Demarious Randall and Taylor. It makes sense that the Browns fully intend to have Taylor start in Week 1, even if it is somewhat surprising that Jackson ended the discussion so early.
