It's getting real.
The NFL Combine is getting underway in Indianapolis this week as the top prospects for the 2018 NFL Draft are showcased on the field, and more importantly in one-on-one meetings with teams.
It's also one of the rare opportunities for us to hear from Browns head coach Hue Jackson during the offseason. He spoke with reporters on Wednesday morning.
There's no question that the Browns are under a bright spotlight from now until late April as we all try to figure out what's inside the minds of GM John Dorsey and his front office, along with Jackson and the rest of the braintrust.
Jim Donovan told me that a national sports talk show began an interview by asking a guest, "So how can the Browns screw things up this time?" Maybe, just maybe, this year will be different.
“Having six of the first 65 picks is going to be a huge opportunity for us moving forward," Jackson said Wednesday. "Our organization is working hard each and every day, excited about this chance and opportunity, and I truly believe we’re going make this opportunity work. That’s what we’ve got to do.”
On Wednesday's Donovan Live Postgame Show, Jimmy and I talked about what we heard from Jackson relating to the draft, quarterbacks, Josh Gordon, and more.
Plus, should fans read too much into USC QB Sam Darnold deciding not to throw during the combine? Jimmy has a theory why Darnold is opting to wait until his pro day in March to show off his arm.
