He insinuated that during a radio interview today... Basically said that in the picks leading up to taking Weeden at 22, they had to reshuffle their board a couple of times and he specifically said that they did have interest in Wright.

I think Weeden was always the plan at QB. However, I think their plan may have been to draft Wright at 22 and then move back into the end of the first round to grab Weeden, just in case another team tried to jump them at 37. That is just my personal opinion, but it comes after reading dozens of reports and hearing Holmgren on the radio today.

Once Wright was gone, they just went ahead and took Weeden, because they didn't really value any of the other WRs left.

I think that the Browns were really high on Blackmon/Floyd/Wright, but literally no one after those three... At least, not enough to take within the first three rounds.

Cleveland Browns first-round picks Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson impressive in first rookie camp practice

BEREA, Ohio -- Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden and running back Trent Richardson were impressive in their first rookie minicamp camp practice today.

Weeden showed off his strong arm, throwing nice, tight spirals with good velocity and zip. He completed plenty of out routes and several deep balls. He also looked fluid operating under center and dropping back. His footwork looked completely natural despite throwing primarily out of the shotgun in college his last two seasons.

"I feel really comfortable under center,'' he said. "I'll be honest, I like being under center more because I can see more of what's going on, and you get the ball immediately. If I had to pick one of the two -- not that I don't like being in the shotgun -- but I like being under center.''

Weeden said he's determined to beat out Colt McCoy and Seneca Wallace for the starting job.

"That's the approach that we're all going to take,'' said Weeden. "It's going to be fun. Colt's been in this system for two years, so he understands the offense. I'm going to ask him questions and we're going to learn together and compete. that's what it's all about. I think he would answer the same way: we're going to do whatever we can to help this team win games, plain and simple. Whether it's me, him, obviously I hope I'm the guy. I'm going to do everything in my power to be the guy but you've got to take it one step at a time.''

Weeden showed off his natural chemistry with former Oklahoma State receiver Josh Cooper, his second-leading receiver there, and also completed some balls to fourth-round pick Travis Benjamin. His quick release and accuracy -- although under no pressure yet -- were evident.

"Even when I first picked up the football, I've always been a natural thrower,'' he said. "Obviously if we get our feet set it's really easy. I was fortunate. When I got to the college level, I took a lot of pride in it. Today I threw the ball fairly accurately, not as good as I can. I've been blessed to be able to throw the football.''

Weeden hopes to bring a championship to the win-starved Browns fans.

"Before I'm done playing I want to win a Super Bowl,'' he said. "That's my goal as a player.''

Richardson showed good burst and speed, and also caught the ball well out of the backfield. He bobbled the first few exchanges, but settled into his game after that.

"You've got to get used to the double numbers on the jerseys,'' he said. "They're kind of slick. I didn't have double numbers or a slick jersey (at Alabama). When I got used to the handoffs with Brandon, another quarterback and stuff, I went with the flow. I know it was a rough start but as it went on, everything smoothed on out.''

He also learned quickly why Weeden was able to throw 90-plus mph fastballs in the minor leagues.

"He's got a strong arm,'' said Richardson. "I was three yards away from him, he threw it real hard and I had to put my hands up real fast. I can see why he played baseball.''

The camp runs through Sunday.

The Browns also signed sixth-round defensive tackle Billy Winn of Boise State. He becomes more important now that Phil Taylor is out for months with a torn pectoral muscle.

Browns coach Pat Shurmur said the team has not discussed acquiring receiver Plaxico Burress, who told Sirius XM Radio that the Browns are one of about four teams he's like to play for.

People acting like Weeden is a bad pick are delusional. Maybe he coulda been had in the 2nd, sure but other than his age, the guy has always seemed to me to be a good pro prospect. The way he plays will work pretty well with having a the makings of a great offensive line. He's not the most athletic QB but he has a strong arm and seems to have a lot of content between the ears.


Sucks about Taylor, love that guy. Still wish he was the Skins nose guard. Hope he maes a quick return
