2017: DeShone Kizer (WORST)
Why He’s here: It’s a little unfair to name a rookie playing for the Browns the worst quarterback in the league. It’s not like Kizer was set up for success. He certainly didn’t have some of the advantages Baker Mayfield did in 2018. Kizer also deserves some credit for beating out a few veterans for the job. However, we can’t ignore the fact that he threw twice as many interceptions as touchdowns, leading the league with 22 picks. On the rare occasion that the Browns had a chance to win a game, Kizer wasn’t able to make winning players to get Cleveland over the hump. In the end, Kizer appeared in 15 games without producing any wins, and that alone is enough to make him the worst quarterback of 2017.
Team Success: As most of us remember, the Browns went winless in 2017. They averaged just over 14 points per game, the fewest in the league and were once again gifted the top overall pick in the draft.
By the Numbers: Completed 255 of 476 passes (53.6%) for 2,894 yards and 11 touchdowns with 22 interceptions.
