    Mike Holmgren: Colt McCoy is “the guy,” Browns need “home-run hitter”

    Posted by Michael David Smith on February 24, 2011, 7:55 AM EST

    Browns President Mike Holmgren has a specific kind of player in mind for the sixth overall pick in the draft, and it’s not a quarterback. Holmgren said at the NFL scouting combine that Colt McCoy is “the guy” for the Browns, and now the team’s primary objective in the draft is to add an impact player.

    “It works best if you can identify ‘the guy,’ let him know he’s ‘the guy,’ and train him appropriately to be ‘the guy,’” Holmgren told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “It’s nice to have all this competition and all this stuff, but it doesn’t work very well, usually. So if you believe in a young man, believe he’s ‘the guy,’ then you have to go with it.”

    Dating back to his days with the Packers, Holmgren has always believed in drafting a quarterback with potential in the late rounds, and so he’ll probably select one at some point. But early in the draft he’ll focus on making the team around McCoy better.

    And as for what the Browns will do at No. 6? Holmgren described himself as “looking for a home-run hitter.”

    At No. 6, the pick who would seem to be the best “home-run hitter” is Georgia receiver A.J. Green. That pick would surely make McCoy happy.
