The Cleveland Browns are planning to move forward with Colt McCoy as their starting quarterback. But that might not keep them from spending an early draft pick on a signal-caller in the 2012 NFL Draft.
The Browns attempted to acquire the No. 2 pick from the St. Louis Rams, but the Washington Redskins eventually struck a deal for the selection. Trading back in the first round is now under consideration for the team, Browns general manager Tom Heckert said Monday.
Heckert said the team had identified five players it would target in the draft, including Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon and cornerback Morris Claiborne.
