Cleveland Browns Finished: 4-12
Drafting: Fourth Pick
Cleveland has had nine top-16 picks since 1999 and two No. 1 picks. The problem is only two players -- tackle Joe Thomas and cornerback Joe Haden -- remain on the team to show for it. The two No. 1 picks -- Tim Couch (1999) and Courtney Brown (2000) -- were busts. The Browns have had nine years of double-digit losses, except for the 10-6 record in 2007.
The Browns amazingly stood pat in free agency, and in fact lost running back Peyton Hillis to the Chiefs. With four picks in the first 67 selections, including two first rounders, the Browns are confident they can improve on their drafting and their team.
With the No. 4 pick the Browns get a chance to add a blue-chip player, and don't care what position it comes at because they need help everywhere. What I can't see them doing is reaching for quarterback Ryan Tannehill with that pick. This is less an affirmation in their faith in current starter Colt McCoy as much as Mike Holm...
