    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer will receive a lot of snaps during offseason workouts because he needs the work, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Kizer will have a chance to win the starting job but probably is at least a year away from playing. He should be avoided in all standard leagues but could be a late-round pick in keeper leagues because of his potential.

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer is 'very coachable,' according to head coach Hue Jackson, and Kizer said he is confident he can become a more accurate thrower.

    Huddle Up: Kizer has all the physical traits you look for in an NFL quarterback, and he should have a chance to start relatively soon. He is a boom-or-bust stash candidate in keeper leagues.

    Cleveland Browns rookie QB DeShone Kizer will be given time to adjust to the NFL and will not feel pressure to take over the starting job right away, according to executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown. 'He's a young man and he's going to have a long time that he's with us and in this league,' Brown said. 'If things go the way I'm sure he's planning on [them going] and the way we hope it goes, we don't have to rush it.'

    Huddle Up: Kizer has a relatively easy path to the Browns' starting position with the not-so-threatening likes of Cody Kessler, Brock Osweiler and Kevin Hogan standing in his way. He will need time to get used to the NFL though. Don't expect anything close to a Dak Prescott-like rookie campaign from Kizer.

    The Cleveland Browns selected Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer with the No. 52 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

    Huddle Up: Kizer could be a starting option for the Browns as soon as this season, but owners should avoid him in 2017 even if he starts. Owners in keeper leagues may consider him as a late-round option because he could become a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in the future.
