Another one of our top 5 quarterbacks in the 2012 draft, Oklahoma State's Brandon Weeden, 6’4 218 lbs.
The leader of Oklahoma State's explosive offense, he'll need to transition from a spread offense to a pro-style offense. The transition is the same Blaine Gabbert had/has to make, but with probably better results. Weeden can make all the throws; he displays solid pocket awareness in being able to slide laterally with time to make the throw. Weeden’s top quality is his accuracy and he shows a nice touch on short and intermediate routes. Weeden does well to keep his eyes downfield through his progressions and not telegraphing where he wants to throw the ball. He is 28 years old, but that's not to say there’s no place in the NFL for him.
Weeden will have to learn to deal with pressure up the middle by staying patient with his feet and make good throws with a shorter delivery. Weeden's mobility is limited and he is average at throwing the ball when on the move. He sometimes requires space to set his feet and has a long wind up delivering the football.
The Cleveland Browns have a chance to change the fate of the franchise with the players they pick in the NFL draft. It seems like most people have forgotten that the Cleveland Browns had a top ten defense last year. The reason for the losing record was because the offense averaged less than two touchdowns a game. The combination of a top offense and defense would put this team over...
With the 22nd pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns selected quarterback Brandon Weeden out of Oklahoma State. What does that mean for current Browns QB Colt McCoy? Weeden was the fourth quarterback taken in the first round of the draft. A 28-year-old rookie, don’t let his age fool you. This guy can play and the
The Cleveland Browns have shown interest in Louisiana State CB Morris Claiborne and as late as this morning Claiborne has talked about how good it would be to join the Cleveland Browns Secondary. The problem just may be the Minnesota Viking reportedly have move Claiborne to the top of their draft board after they decided earlier today not to trade away the number three pick in...
With the 8th pick the Miami Dolphins select QB Ryan Tannehill. The Dolphins missed out on the Peyton Manning lottery and they may be better off in the long run with this selection. He is a QB a pro test can build on as the Dolphins are going nowhere without a real QB. The only question is can he start first year? The Dolphins have no other options.
I really did feel like something of a dummy when the Redskins won the trade battle for the rights to draft Robert Griffin III. I bought into a player and knew that the Browns had the weapons to make the trade happen. When they failed to get it done, I was sad for myself even as I could see some positives for the Browns for not giving up as much as the Redskins did. I was almost more...
Now that he’s back in shape thanks to NutriSystem, NFL Hall of Famer Dan Marino is clearly moving on to bigger and better (and more elderly-like) things and organizations to become involved in, now that it has been announced that the Miami Dolphins legend is the new “Men’s Life Ambassador” for the American Association of [...]
Cleveland Browns general manager Tom Heckert ESPN’s Bob Holtzman that they wouldn’t have drafted former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden if they didn’t expect him to be their starter.
“You don’t take him if he’s not going to start,” said Heckert via Evan Silva.
Now that we’ve also learned that the Browns are looking to trade Colt McCoy, it’s fairly clear...
In fear of potentially being jumped, the Cleveland Browns have traded up to the third-overall pick in order to acquire Alabama running back Trent Richardson. Reported first by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, this move solidifies the Browns’ first first-round selection, allowing Tom Heckert’s scenario board to unfold knowing that the backfield has been addressed.
A three-down back,...
It's the first deal of the night -- and it's a big one.
