NFL Draft 2009 Round 1 #17- Tampa Bay from Cleveland from NY Jets- QB Josh Freeman

The Browns traded down allowing Mark Sanchez to be picked by the Jets. Then Cleveland trades down again.

ESPN writes- In terms of natural ability you couldn’t ask for anything more in a QB prospect. At 6-foot-6, Freeman is tall enough to scan the field from the pocket. He’s big enough at 248 pounds to bounce off would-be tacklers and is mobile enough to pick up yards with his feet when nothing’s available downfield. The concern we have is his ability to absorb an NFL offense and adjust to the speed and complexity of NFL defenses. There couldn’t be more of a red flag for a quarterback when it comes to film evaluation than that.
