With the 22nd-overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns selected Brandon Weeden, quarterback out of Oklahoma State.
There was heavy speculation that wide receiver Kendall Wright would be the selection had he not gone 20th-overall to Tennessee. With the addition of Weeden, there will instantly be a quarterback controversy in Cleveland as Weeden will be 29-years of age and Colt McCoy’s 2011 season left a lot to be desired from a progression standpoint.
In 2011, Weeden led a high-powered Cowboys offense, throwing for over 4,7oo yards and amassing 37 touchdowns with a completion percentage of 72.3 percent.
This selection falls right in line with the last mock draft submitted by ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. Already having bolstered their run game with the addition of Trent Richardson, the Browns will look to address the wide receiver and offensive line positions through the duration of the draft.
