Impact Rookies: Trent Richardson, Brandon Weeden, Mitchell Schwartz, Josh Gordon (supplemental draft), Travis Benjamin, John Hughes, Billy Winn, James-Michael Johnson and L.J. Fort (undrafted free agent)
The Cleveland Browns' roster is filled with young talent, as at least nine rookies made major contributions. Running back Trent Richardson and quarterback Brandon Weeden get most of the media attention. Both players did a lot this season to help improve the Browns offense.
However, this draft class gets such a high grade because of its depth. Less heralded players like offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz, wide receiver Josh Gordon, defensive tackle John Hughes, linebacker James-Michael Johnson and linebacker L.J. Fort all solidified themselves as pieces for the future.
The big-play ability displayed by Gordon is very encouraging. He has the potential to develop into a real difference-maker. Gordon's explosiveness can be utilized because of the protection provided by Schwartz and the offensive line.
Basically, Cleveland did a great job adding tons of talent during the 2012 draft.
