DeShone Kizer: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Kizer received praise from Browns general manager John Dorsey for improving over the final month of his rookie season, Dan Labbe of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "What I thought was really nice was how much he improved week in and week out," Dorsey said. "And like I've always told you guys, I think a young quarterback from year one going through his rookie year, into year two, he makes exponential improvement moving forward and I would expect nothing less from him."

Browns head coach Hue Jackson hinted that Kizer won't necessarily start Week 16 against the Bears, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. "I'm going to watch the tape and make the best decision for our football team because we're still trying to win," Jackson said. "We're not here just trying to get through the season. We're trying to win. If the best decision is to move forward in a different direction, we will. At the same time, I want [Kizer] to finish this if he can."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for DeShone Kizer.

2017

A second-round draft pick, Kizer will compete with Cody Kessler, Brock Osweiler and Kevin Hogan to start for the Browns. At 6-4, 230, Kizer has prototypical size for a QB and a big arm to match. Scouts praised his poise in the pocket and willingness to hang in and take hits. Reports out of OTAs said Kizer was already ahead of the competition in terms of arm strength and mobility; but his accuracy, field vision and decision making -- which in part kept him out of the first round -- are still developing. The Browns, who don't look to be going anywhere this year, have plenty of time; it's just a matter of when they want to get the ball rolling on the only candidate of the quartet with quarterback-of-the-future potential. Kessler seemingly fell out of the competition early in training camp, leaving Osweiler and Kizer to duke it out. The rookie then outplayed the veteran in the first two preseason games, emerging as the favorite to get the Week 1 start in the process.
