This year, there is no clear consensus on who the best quarterback. There isn't
This "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" mentality has led many to believe there are not any Franchise
For many Cleveland Browns
While there may not be a clear-cut guy, like Andrew Luck, there are very few years that there are. Even Peyton Manning had Ryan Leaf. The other Manning, Eli Manning, wasn't considered the only guy at #1 along with a talented QB class. Other top QBs, Cam Newton, Jameis Winston, Matt Ryan, et. al, had questions about their future or if they would be the top guy in the Draft.
On the other hand, assuming that there will always be a Franchise QB in every Draft is foolish. Especially when it is clear there are only 20 or so QBs that could even be considered as such in the NFL at this time. That there could be 4 of them in this Draft goes against the odds as well. It doesn't mean they can't be but history is against it.

Instead, look at the information to it's fullest. Look to see that some very smart people believe that the Top 4 QBs are within their top 6 on their Big Boards. Look to see that some very smart people
What you take from this information is up to you. For me, it excites me that the Browns should have a chance at one or more of these guys with the #12 pick.
There is no consensus on the Top QBs in this class but there is a lot of excitement around all 4 of the guys at the top.
In what order do you rank these 4?
