With the dust following the 2012 NFL Draft having settled, Cleveland Browns tickets on StubHub — one of the world’s most popular secondary ticket markets — have seen sales improve by 119 percent, the second-largest jump in the National Football League.

From CNBC’s Darren Rovell, the Browns have seen their sales improve dramatically following the additions of Alabama running back Trent Richardson and Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden in the first round. The 119-percent spike is only second to the Philadelphia Eagles, a team which spent the bulk of their weekend bolstering their defense. Threatened by blackouts several times over the course of the last few years, the Browns desperately needed an injection of excitement in to a fan base which has witnessed a combined record of 14-34 over the past three seasons.

Rounding out the mix are the Cincinnati Bengals (103 percent) and Miami Dolphins (102 percent) with the AFC North team having one of the more commended drafts in the league and the Dolphins adding their hopeful quarterback of the future in Texas A&M’s Ryan Tannehill.
