AFC North Preview – Cleveland Browns

by on July 22, 2012 updated July 22, 2012

 

 

Last year, the Cleveland Browns had a disappointing record of 4-12.  The offense could really never kick in and the defense was dead last in rushing yards allowed per game with 147 yards per game.  On the other hand, they had an excellent draft by drafting standout Alabama running back Trent Richardson and 28-year old Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden.

The additions of Weeden and Richardson were bigger than most people think.  Their offense was nothing more than dreadful.  They were dead last in the NFL with points only scoring 14 points per game.  They also were second to last in total yards per game with 288 yards.  Richardson can really pump up the running game.  With the Browns only having about 95 rushing yards a game, Trent Richardson will immensely help.  He immediately gives this team a power back that runs very fast in open space.  He is also known to break a tackle or two.

Passing wasn’t a great success for the Browns either as they only threw for about 195 yards per game.  Adding Brandon Weeden will instantly improve this problem.  At Oklahome State, Weeden broke five different school records including passing yards in a season, completed passes in a season, completion percentage in a season, passing yards in one game (435), and completions in a game (34).  Brandon Weeden is the most NFL ready quarterback from this year’s draft.  The Browns have an excellent future in their sights.
