Ryan Leaf knows a thing or two about becoming a draft pick. He believes that the key to avoiding such a fate is to avoid joining the wrong team. In Reeve's view, this means staying away from Cleveland Brown.
Reeve said in an interview that he would like top scorers such as Sam Darnold of South Queensland to tell his agent, 'We can't join Cleveland Brown,' and then find a way to avoid Let Brown pick himself with the top pick.
'I don't want anyone to be a draft picker,' Reeve said. 'I want them to succeed. There is no evidence for me that Brown will succeed. This is where quarterbacks will bury their lives. How many quarterbacks - 27 quarterbacks have played for them in the past 10 years? If I were Sam Danod, I now have bargaining chips and I know I will be the draft pick and I will tell my agent, 'Help me think of a way not to go to Brown. Let me be like Iraq. Like Eli Manning.''
Rive says John Elway rejected the Baltimore Pony and Manning in 1983 to reject San Diego lightning in 2004 is the right thing to do: Directly reject teams that you think will not represent your best interests. Effectiveness.
'Do something like John Elvi or Eli Manning,' Reeve said. 'What if he played five years at Brown and then they are mediocre because they never win?'
There are no indications that the top quarterbacks in this year's draft will make it clear that they will not play for Brown. But Reeve thinks they should do it.
