Browns Beat: DeShone Kizer has pulled ahead in QB competition

Browns QB DeShone Kizer has won the first week of training camp, and has moved closer to being named the starter for the preseason opener.

With the two-minute drill being a quarterback's showcase, Cody Kessler and Brock Osweiler have not helped themselves this week.

Heading into the Orange and Brown scrimmage on Friday at FirstEnergy Stadium, Kizer not only won the day Thursday, but has won the first seven days of training camp.

In fact, it's not even close. Now, all he has to do is more of the same in the scrimmage to earn the nod against the Saints.

"Obviously after we have the scrimmage and go through that process (I'll decide),'' said Jackson. "Next week, there's really two days of practice before we play.''

Jackson stressed however, that the order could flip again depending on how things go. But if all goes as expected, it will be soon be Kizer's job to lose.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Browns are one of the few teams with a legit quarterback competition. If Kizer wins the job, it's conceivable that he'll work his way into the streaming conversation as the season wears on.
