Kizer appeared in 15 games with the Browns during his rookie season, and the results weren't pretty as he completed just 53.6 percent of his passes and posted an 11:22 TD:INT. Though Kizer was only in Cleveland one year and was a second-round selection in 2017, the Browns deemed him expendable following the trade for Tyrod Taylor. The Browns further bolstered the position with the pick of Baker Mayfield first overall in the draft, necessitating the purge of the quarterback room. Now in Green Bay, Kizer will compete with Brett Hundley for the No. 2 spot.

  2. DeShone Kizer 2017 Preseason Outlook
    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.

Praised by GM Dorsey
QBCleveland Browns
March 5, 2018
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."
