There are seven games remaining in the Cleveland Browns season, and barring a miracle of biblical proportions, the club will miss the playoffs for a 10th-straight year.
With disappointment comes the optimism of a fresh NFL entry draft and all the possibilities that could be for Cleveland going into 2013.
Plenty of holes remain for the league's youngest team. Offense was the primary concern a year ago, so GM Tom Heckert selected a running back, quarterback and right tackle with the Browns' first three picks.
Trent Richardson is proving that despite the injuries, he can be the dynamic rusher Cleveland was hoping for.
The report card is unfinished with rookie QB Brandon Weeden, who has shown flashes that he can be a productive starter.
Overcoming early growing pains, Mitchell Schwartz continues to develop into a steady right tackle.
Heckert delivered a successful draft class for the Browns and must do so again this spring. Assuming he is still employed as general manager at that time.
It will be the defense's turn to get first-round priority at the draft.
These next slides will rank the top five players that Cleveland should have on their draft board.
