Here’s how Browns quarterbacks have performed since 1999, categorized by their draft position (regular season and playoffs):
|Draft round||W/L record||W/L %||Pass yards||Completion %||TDs||INTs|
This data dive was inspired by the recent success of Brian Hoyer, one of the undrafteds, who continues to hold off first-round rookie Johnny Manziel. Hoyer’s the only Browns starter in this era with a winning record.
For your reference, here are the QBs in each category, listed in descending order by pass attempts:
- 1: Tim Couch, Brandon Weeden, Brady Quinn, Trent Dilfer, Jason Campbell, Manziel.
- 2-4: Colt McCoy, Charlie Frye, Seneca Wallace, Luke McCown
- 5-end: Derek Anderson, Ken Dorsey, Ty Detmer, Spergon Wynn, Bruce Gradkowski
- undrafted: Kelly Holcomb, Jeff Garcia, Hoyer, Doug Pederson, Jake Delhomme, Thaddeus Lewis, Kevin Thompson
