Farmer sheds more light on Browns' draft

5/21/2014

It sounds like it was Johnny Manziel in the draft at quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, or nobody.

That is the upshot from an interview Ray Farmer with ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Grossi this week, as Grossi asked Farmer questions rapid-fire with some rapid-fire answers.

Asked what quarterback the Browns would have wound up with had they not been able to trade up for Manziel, Farmer said the player “is already on the roster.”

Asked the one player in the draft who will definitely be a star, Farmer said guard Zack Martin of Notre Dame, taken by Dallas instead of Manziel.

Finally, Farmer dropped this interesting tidbit about the quarterback spot, and presumably Brian Hoyer.

Asked what it means if Manziel is the starting quarterback in the season opener, Farmer said that “somebody got hurt.”
