What Are the Cleveland Browns' Needs in the 2013 NFL Draft?

Aaron NaglerNFL National Lead WriterJanuary 8, 2013

The Cleveland Browns will be starting over yet again after the dismissal of Pat Shurmur.

The next head coach of the Browns won't be walking into a situation completely devoid of talent. There are some good football players on the roster.

But to turn the Browns into a consistent winner, it's pretty obvious that the team needs to fix the quarterback position.

Maybe Brandon Weeden is the answer and maybe he isn't, but does it really matter? He's only going to be around for a limited amount of time due to his advanced age, and then what? They're right back where they started, looking for a new quarterback.

Is this the draft to find someone at the quarterback position, though? 

Matt Miller and I rounded up a bunch of football fans, gave them hats and B/R swag, then headed over to Highland Park here in New York City and tried to figure out the answer to that question.

Here's a look at where the Browns have the most pressing needs heading into the 2013 NFL draft.
