Tom Heckert and The Cleveland Browns continue to surprise Browns fans everywhere with this years NFL draft. The first pick for the Browns was a huge delight for the Cleveland Fans, many didn’t understand taking Weeden with the teams second pick and the fans were really shocked as the picks went on. The team made a huge impact taking Trent Richardson in the first round, The fans do not understand why the team didn’t get any help for the offense when it comes to a wide receiver. The Browns led the NFL in dropped passes last season and the fans really thought the Browns would draft a receiver with the second pick or at least the third pick.
When the Cleveland Browns drafted Mitchell Schwartz with the 37 overall pick in the NFL draft you could hear the boos that filled Radio City Music hall in New York City. Then when they picked defensive tackle John Hughes at No. 87 the fans were even further confused. The Browns must think they have a great group of guys to catch the football, or maybe it is the fact they drafted Trent Richardson and he is going to do it all this season.
Many thought Mitchell Schwartz is a fourth round pick at best. Perhaps the fact that he played two years in college with Mack the Browns iron man center had something to do with his selection at 37. If Schwartz can play even close to an Alex Mack the pick will turn out to be golden. The teams is certainly going to need extra time to get the ball down field with the receivers they have and you need a good O line to do that.
It should be interesting to see who the Cleveland Browns select next. The Surprises never seem to end when you’re a Browns fan. Heckert has picked some winners before, he is either going to continue that trend or this will be his first bad draft with the Browns. Only Tim Will Tell.
