BRANDON WEEDEN — Will it be the Browns, Dolphins, Chiefs or someone else who steps up to pick the Cowboys' passing wiz?

Coach/franchise: Former Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin is the new Dolphins coach and former Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman is the new offensive coordinator. Miami last made the playoffs in 2008 and hasn't won a postseason game since 2000.

City/fan base/quality of life: Miami sports fans aren't exactly known for being a rowdy or diehard group, especially during its recent playoff drought. But living in South Beach would be quite appealing for most 20-somethings. Even married, late-20-somethings.

Could also take a QB at: No. 8 overall (Ryan Tannehill)

Chance Weeden lands here: 25 percent


NO. 44 TO KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

Current starter: Matt Cassel passed for 1,173 yards, 10 touchdowns and nine interceptions in a 2011 season cut short by a hand injury. The Chiefs also signed Brady Quinn in the offseason.

Offensive scheme: Up-tempo

Supporting cast: All-Pro running back Jamal Charles should return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in 2012. Leading receiver Dwayne Bowe remains unsigned.

Coach/franchise: Romeo Crennel took over as head coach 13 games into the 2011 season after Todd Haley was fired. General manager Scott Pioli said last week that the Chiefs would like to select a quarterback in every draft. Kansas City won the AFC West in 2010.

City/fan base/quality of life: Like the Browns, the Chiefs have some of the most passionate fans in the NFL. Playing in Kansas City will also keep Weeden fairly close to home.

Could also take a QB at: No. 11 overall (Ryan Tannehill)

Chance Weeden lands here: 5 percent

Other possibilities: Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills, San Francisco 49ers
