Who's the Next Matt Cassel?

I frequently wonder how many guys out there could play quarterback in the NFL and succeed. After all, many teams blunder greatly with their first-round selections, and late-round picks such as Tom Brady and Cassel have succeeded, the former into the conversation of "who is the best quarterback ever?" and the latter just by leading his team to an 11-5 season after the former went down with a season-ending injury. For some, it's a question of being in the right place at the right time and getting a shot (heck, Joe Montana, who some consider to be the best QB ever, wasn't even a first-round pick).

Thankfully, John Clayton of ESPN.com recently wrote this article. You probably would be surprised at his conclusion -- that the next hidden gem is the third-string quarterback of the Browns, who have a QB controversy going between Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn.
