After taking Brandon Weeden in the first round of the NFL draft, the Cleveland Browns all but handed the Oklahoma State QB the starting job.

Browns General Manager Tom Heckert said, "In our opinion, he is (the guy),we took the kid at the 22nd pick of the draft. We're hoping he is."

The Browns indicated that they might move Colt McCoy as soon as today to either move up to the top of the 2nd round or gather more draft picks.

McCoy is 6-15 as a starter for the Browns after being thrown into the starting lineup as a rookie because of injuries.

McCoy was drafted in the third round in 2010. McCoy is listed at 6-1 and 215 pounds, while Weeden is 6-3, 220. Weeden's arm strength is considered to be better. Weeden will be 29 by opening day, but the Browns believe that he still has a "young" body that has not taken the blows most QB's in the league his age, since he spent five years playing minor league baseball.

Colt getting out of Cleveland quickly and getting a new start somewhere else would be the best scenario.
