Twitter reacts to the selection of Dorian Thompson-Robinson in the 2023 NFL draft
Despite bringing back quarterback Josh Dobbs on a fully guaranteed deal for one year, the Cleveland Browns value a cost-controlled backup quarterback over the next four seasons. Using their second fifth rounder on UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson, the Browns now have their backup of the future.
It was not a team need, so the reception on social media was not met with complete understanding. Just as we have done for every pick before him, here is how Twitter reacted to the selection of the UCLA quarterback.

The Browns make it 5 QBs so far today with Dorian Thompson-Robinson. Highest upside of the backup QBs with his arm talent and athleticism. Really interesting developmental passer who has flashes like this: pic.twitter.com/VLAlnPTVX5

The Browns are building depth like we have not seen them have since returning to the NFL in 1999.
Long term development!

This is a great value pick for the Browns getting Dorian Thompson-Robinson at 140. He is the ideal #2 for Cleveland.

Don't care about the hyphen… I absolutely love getting a Robinson on this team and Dorian Thompson-Robinson is fun as hell at QB! Great pick on Day 3. #DawgPound

DTR has a good feel for throwing receivers open but has to gain consistency with identifying defenders in adjacent zones. He's a dual-threat QB with a journeyman ceiling who will be fighting for the No.3 spot early in his career.

Browns take Dorian Thompson-Robinson at No. 140. He's a playmaker. Dynamic runner. Super tough kid. Streaky passer. Felt like he was at UCLA all the way back to the Neuheisel years.

Like the Dorian Thompson-Robinson pick for the Browns. 48 career starts at UCLA. Carried that program for 5 years and turned it around at the end. Legit top-25 team last season on his shoulders. Experienced and dynamic.

Dorian Thompson-Robinson passed for 3,169 yards last season, had six games of 70% completions.
