Back in April, the Browns concluded their 2011 draft to mixed reviews.
Some thought GM Tom Heckert did an excellent job swindling future picks from the Atlanta Falcons via trade and evaluating talent for the Browns choices; others thought Heckert and the Browns didn't correctly prioritize and failed to address serious needs at several position groups.
And with the strike in full swing, many of us wondered if there would even be a rookie season in 2011 for our team's brand new additions.
Luckily, the strike was resolved and there is an NFL season after all (though perhaps as Browns fans, we should have wished there wasn't).
The lack of a true offseason and an abbreviated training camp made it nearly impossible to evaluate rookies prior to the season, and tough to do so even after a few weeks of the season had come and gone.
But now, as we approach Week 11 of the 2011 NFL season, we're finally beginning to get a true sense of how the Browns' draft picks have translated in the NFL.
Following is a report card for the Browns 2011 rookies through Week 10. Note that this report card does not include UDFAs and that fourth-round pick TE Jordan Cameron and seventh-round pick Eric Hagg are also not included due to a lack of playing time.
