It's been know for a while that the Cleveland Browns were going to target a quarterback in this year's NFL Draft, but no one is sure if it's with the 4th-overall pick, or they'll maneuver the 26th pcik to find a QB.

If they do decide to trade up from pick No. 26, Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater could be an option for them, according to Mary Cabot of Cleveland.com:

This past year, Bridgewater completed 303-of-427 passes (71%) for 3,970 yards with 31 touchdowns to just 4 interceptions  in 13 starts.

Bridgewater also scored six career rushing touchdowns and had a 27-8 record in 35 games as a starter. He's competing with UCF's Blake Bortles, Fresno State's Derek Carr and Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel to be the first QB taken in this year's draft.
