Former Purdue quarterback David Blough is headed to Cleveland.
The three-year starting quarterback at Purdue didn’t hear his name called during the 2019 NFL Draft, but he’ll be making the short drive from West Lafayette to Cleveland to prove he belongs in the league. He signed a free agent contract with the Browns following the draft.

Blough had an up-and-down career at Purdue, but ended on a really high note with a strong senior season. He started 11 games for the Boilermakers and played in all 13, throwing for 3,705 yards and 25 touchdowns while leading his team to a bowl game.
Blough also engineered upset wins over Boston College, Iowa and Ohio State all last fall.
Now, Blough gets the chance to prove he’s capable of shouldering an NFL team. He’ll head to Cleveland hoping to earn a roster spot somewhere behind star quarterback Baker Mayfield.
