Browns QB Colt McCoy talks about NFL Draft, labor dispute

By Nate Ulrich Published: April 28, 2011

Browns quarterback Colt McCoy spoke with FOX Business Network’s Chris Cotter today about the NFL Draft and the league's labor dispute. Here are some of the highlights from the interview:

On who he would like to see the Browns pick tonight in the first round of the draft: "Selfishly, as a quarterback, you can’t have too many weapons on offense. Let’s get all the receivers we can. I do know Tom Heckert, Mike Holmgren, coach Pat Shurmur, they have been through this before. This is their draft, and I trust them to make the right decisions for our football team. If that’s offense, defense, whatever we need, I know they are going to do their best to get the right people in the right places. As a player, I trust them with that. I am anxious to see how it goes down."

On the labor dispute: "There is so much uncertainty right now. We are just waiting to find out what is going on. I hope it won’t come to that point where you have to sit out a year not get paid. There are a lot of other guys in worse situations than I am. I think the owners' goal and the players' goal is to have a season this year. It’s just a matter of finding a way to make it work. It think that’s where we are headed. It’s just taking more time than what I would like. For a while there was a big concern, as to are we even going to get to go back. Now that there is some ruling going on here, it’s looking positive."

On being a third-round draft pick last year: "The draft day is full of uncertainty. I was coming off a shoulder injury that people were skeptical about. Looking back on it now, I understand. I get it. I fell to the third round. But it’s all about the opportunity you make it, and so far I have made the most of it and will continue to improve."
