With the Cleveland Browns wrapping up their 8th losing season in the last 9 years this past Sunday, the annual look ahead towards the top NFL Draft prospects by Browns fans has begun. The Browns own the 4th overall pick in April’s NFL Draft. But one Browns player believes its going to take more than a high draft pick to turn the franchises’ fortunes around.
“If you’re depending on a draft pick to come in here and change your life, then you’re kidding yourself,” Browns cornerback Sheldon Brown told Scott Petrak from the Chronicle Telegram and the Cleveland media as he cleaned out his locker on Monday.

Seneca Wallace the back up quarterback who started 3 games for the injured Colt McCoy says he wants a shot to be the Browns starting quarterback in 2012. As far as I am concern Wallace just had his shot and he lost the argument. Wallace played the last three games of the season and he lost all three. What really is surprising among those loses is the way Wallace wasted time outs...
“I have confidence. We will get this done.” – Mike Holmgren
Mike Holmgren and Tom Heckert didn’t pull a lot of punches in my opinion.
