It didn't come as a surprise to many that the Cleveland Browns selected Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden with the 22nd overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, as Colt McCoy hasn't done much to solidify himself as a starting quarterback in the National Football League. 

Last year, McCoy appeared in 13 games, passing for 2,733 yards, 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. The Browns had one of the league's worst offenses, and the 28-year-old Weeden will push McCoy early for the starting job. 

While McCoy is only entering his third season in the NFL, the pressure is on him to beat out Weeden if he hopes to stay a starter in the league, because the Browns didn't use a first-round draft choice for a quarterback to sit on the bench. 

Weeden had a productive collegiate career with the Oklahoma Cowboys, completing 69.5 percent of his passes for 9,260 yards, 75 touchdowns to just 27 interceptions in 30 games.
