Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot on QB Brandon Weeden's propensity to have passed batted down at the line of scrimmage:
"Some of it had to do with all the short, three-step drops, and some of it with him not releasing the ball quickly enough. The new vertical scheme will feature more five- and seven-step drops, and the coaches have been working with Weeden on his footwork and speeding up his release. And fellow first-round pick Barkevious Mingo has shown a knack for batting down balls in practice, so when he works more with the first team, he'll give Weeden a good look in that department."
The first step in fixing any problem is admitting that you have one, and it sounds like the Browns realize that Weeden's fundamentals need work. He's a tall (6'4") QB, so this shouldn't be an issue for him. We're expecting Weeden to take a step forward in his sophomore season.
