    Having Richardson in the offseason really would have helped him out. Plus Weeden is throwing to young wideouts. I'm really impressed with Gordon, Schwartz, and Johnson.

    Gotta go with a B on it. Weeden needs to cut out some of the INTs and I was hoping for Trich to be closer to a 4.0 average rather than 3.5. That being said, Schwartz looks like the bookend tackle opposite Joe Thomas that we have desperately needed. Josh Gordon looks to be a steal with his production and improvement week to week. John Hughes and Billy Winn have given the Browns incredible depth at DT behind Taylor and Rubin. The young LBs have really played better than anyone imagined they would this year. Benjamin and Cooper have added an extra passing option, but I think Benjamin's best attribute going forward will be his return skills with Cribbs likely gone at the end of the year. And lastly, Gipson and Bademosi have both been great on ST and in limited PT.

    Anytime you can get 3 starters in a draft it is a plus draft even after trading away 3 draft picks. I'm also not putting Gordon in this draft as he will cost a 2013 draft so I will put him in that one but he already looks like a legitimate first rounder that they obtained in the second so 2013 gets a A+ from me right now. I'll hold off judgement on this draft until 2014 as Brandon Weeden is going to be the one that makes this draft either an A or a C for me. Either way they had 4 major needs going into the 2012 draft, a QB, RB, and RT and then speed on the team. They filled all four of those needs while adding great depth at DT so if you were to judge it right now it would have to be a B+ with the ability to be an A if Weeden continues to progress and can get them in the playoff hunt next year if he is the QB.
