Browns Beat: Breaking down QB Cody Kessler

Part of me wants to believe in Cody Kessler.

I'm talking about him becoming a decent NFL quarterback who can be an Alex Smith-type game manager. Or maybe a Brian Hoyer-style quarterback.

When it comes to Kessler, I have significant doubts. In minicamps, he had too many passes batted down at the line of scrimmage. He seldom completed deep balls. He was accurate on short throws.

He is an inexperienced quarterback who will be throwing to mostly inexperienced receivers. He should have more time, thanks to a revamped offensive line.

Fantasy Impact: 

This may be the longest story you ever read on Kessler and the Cleveland QBs. Basically, this writer is higher on Osweiler than most others and not quite as high on Kizer ... and perhaps somewhere in the middle with Kessler. He seems to think Kizer has a lot to learn before he takes the field. There don't seem to be a lot of writers who are even considering Osweiler for the job so it very well may be Kessler's to win. He will have an improved O-line but also a lot seemingly working against him, according to this piece anyway.
