Trent Richardson, RB
The Browns did not move up one spot and pay such a steep price for the talented running back for no good reason.
With Peyton Hillis out of its hair, Cleveland's best running back was oft-injured Montario Hardesty. Richardson represents an immediate and immense upgrade at the position, instantly becoming the starter and lead back for the team.
There is no question he will put up great statistics as a result.
Prediction: 1,100 yards, 11 touchdowns; 200 receiving yards, one touchdown
Brandon Weeden, QB
As much as Cleveland has been panned for taking a 28-year-old rookie quarterback, he will be an immediate upgrade at the position. He may not have the shelf life the other quarterbacks will have in the NFL, but his maturity could give him a leg up as a rookie.
Perhaps a victim of ageism, Weeden could be playing with a chip on his shoulder this season. He is in the best situation aside from Robert Griffin, with a stud running back to take the pressure off and some talented receivers and tight ends to throw to.
Prediction: 3,500 yards, 19 touchdowns, 18 interceptions
