After passing on McCoy with two earlier picks, the Browns grabbed the Longhorns' four-year starter with the No. 85 overall selection.
The Browns have spent the offseason reshaping the quarterback position, which has been an almost constant headache for a decade. They traded Brady Quinn, released Derek Anderson and signed free agent Jake Delhomme. Now, they've added McCoy as a possible long-term solution.
McCoy figured to be drafted much earlier but was taken after fellow college stars Sam Bradford, Tim Tebow and Jimmy Clausen. He went 45-8 as a starter and was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy as a junior and senior.
