Browns' Cody Kessler hoping to improve on deep passing in 2017

Cleveland Browns quarterback Cody Kessler hopes to improve his deep ball as a second-year pro.

What It Means:

"I definitely spent countless hours in the weight room and out on the field and really, really emphasized pushing the ball down field and different things with my mechanics," Kessler said. Kessler's arm strength was a known issue coming out of USC. Currently penciled in as the Browns' starter, Kessler will be getting competition, if not an outright replacement, in the draft.

Among the 39 quarterbacks who had at least 100 drop backs this year, Kessler ranked 17th in Passing Net Expected Points per drop back.
