Check here for 2012 NFL draft grades for every Cleveland Browns draft pick.

The Browns exponentially improved their team following the 2012 NFL draft. At least it appears that way on paper.

Coming into the draft the Browns had a league-high 13 draft picks. After sacrificing two of them in order to move up to ensure they didn't lose out on the rights to Trent Richardson, they still ended up with a solid group of prospects to add into the mix in 2012.

If there is one thing Tom Heckert has demonstrated in his tenure as the Browns' general manager, it's that he is uncompromising from his plan.

While it may not be what you want to hear or see, the reality struck once again in the third round of the draft. Heckert picked a lesser known defensive tackle after trading down from the 67th overall selection.

Defensive tackle?

What about the wide receivers, linebackers and cornerbacks?

Heckert had his plan and he executed it.

While the true grades for these picks will not be completely evident until after they've had time to play some football, I think there's more than enough information to take a stab at judging this draft in its infancy.

Take a look at my initial reaction and grades for Heckert's moves in the 2012 NFL draft.
