Lets face reality, the way Peyton Hillis runs his durability certainly comes into question for the Cleveland Browns. Trent Richardson comes into the NFL draft as a top 15 prospect. Yes, I already know the Cleveland fans really want their Madden poster boy back this season, the problem is Hillis missed multiple games last season with a hamstring problem. Hillis isn’t long for the National Football league with his style of running. The Browns are going to need a guy like Richardson to get the team to be competitive in the AFC North. The Browns flat out need play makers.
Richardson comes into the draft as an elite possibility, people are saying he is right up there with backs like Adrian Peterson in 2007 or Darren McFadden in 2008. The Browns could use a guy like that. At one time for one season Hillis was a threat to teams. Those days didn’t come this past season for Hillis. The Browns need to build a team with some play makers.. Richardson fits right into that term, he is a play-maker and he could help the Cleveland Browns win football games.
Richardson has all the tools to come into the NFL and make things happen, at 5’11″ and 224lbs he has good speed too. Richardson will come into the NFL and establish himself as one of the Leagues play-makers and he will do it rather quickly. We saw it last season when Hillis goes down, the team had no depth. Sure they went out and got guys to help out. One reason is Hardesty hasn’t developed into what the Browns hoped for. Cleveland Shouldn’t take the chance this year of a repeat season in the Browns backfield, they need to really reach out and grab Trent Richardson, then get a wide receiver too.
