DeShone Kizer continues to draw rave reviews in the first training camp of his NFL career.
Following up some high praise from head coach Hue Jackson, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Kenny Britt shared a belief Sunday that his young signal-caller is already on a path to greatness.
“I actually asked him yesterday if the offense has slowed down for him, and he said yes. And I was like ‘I can tell.’ He’s looking at certain things, he’s seeing defense before the snap count. And once he lines up, he knows certain things that he has to do,” Britt said, via Pat McManamon of ESPN. “He’s going to be one of the great ones.”
Britt seemingly supporting Jackson’s notion, suggesting that Kizer is progressing far more quickly than anticipated, adds further intrigue to an already compelling quarterback competition.
The second-round pick almost certainly enters training camp as an underdog to both Brock Osweiler and Cody Kessler, but he’ll have every opportunity to establish himself as the quarterback of the future.
His early impressions would appear to suggest that he’s taking steps in that direction.
