The Browns' new emphasis on advanced analytics may help them find their quarterback of the future.
ESPN's Sal Paolantonio, reporting from Browns headquarters, said the team spent $100,000 on a study of quarterbacks and it concluded that Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater is the best signal-caller in the 2014 NFL Draft.
According to Paolantonio, the study was commissioned by former CEO Joe Banner and just recently completed.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports first reported the study Wednesday in a feature story on Bridgewater.
The Browns hold the Nos. 4 and 26th picks as the first round of the draft begins at 8 p.m. tonight.
