Browns Consulting Bill Parcells for Draft Quarterbacks

Weeks ago, a lot was made how the Browns hired former Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan to be a consultant leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft. WalterFootball.com has learned that McCloughan isn't the only big name who has given the Browns some feedback on draft prospects, as Hall of Fame head coach Bill Parcells has also shared his thoughts with them. Parcells has watched the quarterbacks and shared what he thinks of them with high-ranking Browns officials.

Sources didn't reveal which quarterback or quarterbacks Parcells was the highest on, but it sounded like he wasn't a fan of UCLA's Josh Rosen. In the past, Parcells has believed that for a general rule, he wanted his quarterbacks to have started for three years or had 30 starts in their college career. Of those parameters here's how the quarterbacks rank in terms of playing experience: Baker Mayfield (48 games), Lamar Jackson (38 games), Rosen (30 games), Sam Darnold (27 games), and Josh Allen (27 games).

The former Cleveland front office was known for using an analytic approach to the draft. Sources say the Browns' new regime is going to a more old-school approach under general manager John Dorsey. Sources around the league are saying there are rumblings that Cleveland is going to have some big turnover in its scouting staff, and the analytic approach is going to be a very minor consideration rather than the guiding principles. Consulting scouting vets like McCloughan and Parcells fits with the old-school philosophy of Dorsey and other front office executives like Alonzo Highsmith and Eliot Wolf.

There have been a big variety in reports on which quarterback Cleveland is targeting in the 2018 NFL Draft. Some have linked the Browns to really liking Mayfield; others have said Allen is a favorite of Cleveland; while others think the Browns are leaning towards Darnold as their quarterback of choice. Between McCloughan and Parcells, the Browns are considering outside opinions in making a critical decision for the new regime under Dorsey.
