Brandon Weeden Drafted by Browns with 22nd Overall Pick

Posted by

The Cleveland Browns made waves earlier in the day when they traded up to with the Minnesota Vikings to get the guy they wanted in Trent Richardson. Well the Browns weren’t done making noise in the draft as they selected Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden.

Many scouts and mock drafts had Weeden being selected in the 2nd; however the Browns chose to get their guy before anybody else had the chance to snatch him off the board.

As evident by today’s action, the Browns were bound and determined to get the guys they wanted, and they landed both of them.

With the Browns drafting Weeden in the first round, all signs point to Colt McCoy not being the incumbent starter and Weeden having a legit shot at starting on opening day. Weeden will hopefully have some more weapons alongside him and Richardson to help turn around an offensive that was dreadful last season.

With all the activity the Browns have shown thus far, it’ll be interesting to see how they proceed with the 2nd round of the NFL Draft. They still need a wide receiver and help on the right side of the offensive line, so let’s see what Gm Tom Heckert does to upgrade the team.

Below are the picks the Browns have remaining in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Round 2, Pick 5 (37)

Round 3, Pick 4 (67)

Round 4, Pick 5 (100)
