David Richard-US PRESSWIRE
Picks: Trent Richardson, Brandon Weeden, Mitchell Schwartz, Josh Gordon (supplemental), John Hughes, Travis Benjamin, James-Michael Johnson, Ryan Miller, Emmanuel Acho, Billy Winn, Trevin Wade, Brad Smelley and L.J. Fort (undrafted)
Despite some unimpressive numbers, Trent Richardson is having a solid start to his career. He's already the Cleveland Browns' top playmaker and one of the few reliable performers. Richardson's versatility allows the Browns to get him involved in both the running and passing game.
This is a team that really lacks explosive players on offense, so the Browns know they must get Richardson touches.
Brandon Weeden isn't playing great football, but a lot of his struggles are not his fault. Cleveland's wide receivers continue to run poor routes and drop the football. It's obvious Weeden has no confidence in his targets and is starting to lose confidence in himself.
When Cleveland landed Billy Winn late in the draft, I knew they got a steal. Winn is a talented football player who can hold up against the run and penetrate the pocket. He's really establishing himself as future building block for the Browns.
John Hughes is also playing solid football. Moving forward, Cleveland has a good four-man rotation at the defensive tackle spot. The combination of Wynn, Hughes, Phil Taylor and Ahtyba Rubin has a very bright future.
The Browns are getting a nice contribution from Travis Benjamin. He's still raw as a route-runner, but his speed makes him a vertical threat. Benjamin is quickly becoming the Browns' most reliable receiver.
