2017 NFL Draft Reaction: DeShone Kizer Goes to the Cleveland Browns

RotoViz has teamed up with TwoQBs to provide post-draft analysis of the 2017 quarterback class. Two QBs is devoted to 2QB and Superflex fantasy leagues and provides player evaluations and advice, rankings, and strategy. Anthony Amico’s work can be found here. DeShone Kizer was drafted 52nd overall by the Cleveland Browns as the team looks to add some more competition for Cody Kessler. Kizer experienced a bit of a slip in the draft from what was originally expected. From a fantasy perspective, I wouldn’t expect anything out of Kizer right away. He was generally considered a project by most pundits, and Kessler was good enough last season to have the lead for the starting job. However, there are certainly great weapons in Cleveland for whenever Kizer gets his shot. We’ll get to more of that in a minute. First, let’s take a look at your new Cleveland Browns QB.

From DeShone Kizer: Armchair Scouting Report.
Kizer’s completion percentage is incredibly worrisome on its own. Here is the complete list of signal callers since 2000 to complete less than 60 percent of their passes in their final season (1-A prospects only) and go on to have a QB1 season in the NFL in fantasy points per game. The number of such seasons are in parenthesis. Matt Ryan (4) Jay Cutler (3) Tyrod Taylor (2) David Garrard (2) Derek Anderson (1)
