Browns second-round QB DeShone Kizer said he has seen a “faster” learning curve so far this offseason.
“It is exactly what I expected when I got brought over to this club,” Kizer said, via Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk. “Coach Jackson, during the . . . pre-draft process, that is exactly how he goes about his quarterbacks and he has held up to it and he has gone even further. With that, it allows me to start my learning curve a little faster.
Browns HC Hue Jackson added that he will continue to directly with Kizer.
“I will continue to do so,” Jackson said. “I have to find out probably more about him than I do any of the guys. He is not going to get too far away from me, I know that. He has done a good job. He just has to keep getting better. He has improved from day to day.”
