Most Disappointing: Brandon Weeden, QB
A whole disappointing situation. The pick felt hasty to begin with, and one five-win campaign later, Weeden is now wondering who his coach will be next season—a season in which the second-year signal-caller will celebrate his 30th birthday while learning a whole new system.
You can't come in as the one half of the face of the Browns' future—along with Trent Richardson—and only manage to win five games.
Weeden did add a dimension of excitement to the offense in 2012, thanks in large part to fellow rookie Josh Gordon, but the overall outlook is still murky moving forward regarding his future.
Not encouraging at best.
