Picks: RB Trent Richardson, QB Brandon Weeden, T Mitchell Schwartz, DT John Hughes, WR Travis Benjamin, ILB James-Michael Johnson, G Ryan Miller, OLB Emmanuel Acho, DE Billy Winn, CB Trevin Wade, TE Brad Smelley
Best-case scenario: The Cleveland Browns franchise turns around with the installment of Brandon Weeden, who shines with major help from Trent Richardson. For his part, Richardson excels like other highly drafted rushers Adrian Peterson and Chris Johnson.
The other picks in the Browns' large draft class find decent roles in the teams future, particularly Mitchell Schwartz and Travis Benjamin.
Worst-case scenario: The Browns go from terrible to atrocious as Weeden manages to combine the worst parts of age and inexperience to stink out loud in the early portion of his pro career. Despite given more than a season to develop, he never gets it, and he leaves the team a 30-year-old journeyman (with only two years of playing time).
Richardson, like many other highly touted running backs, fails to get much going. With little passing threat to build upon, teams stack the box nearly completely.
Sick of losing, the city of Cleveland demands the team's departure.
