2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The Browns drafted Kessler a bit earlier than expected during the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, as the former USC standout has less-than-stellar measurables and throwing ability by pro standards. He'll still be given a chance at the starting quarterback job in Cleveland, but it's a long shot with experienced options such as Josh McCown and Robert Griffin also in the hunt for the top spot. At this point, it looks like Kessler will head into his rookie campaign with a backup role.
