After months upon months upon months of planning, evaluating, analyzing, doubting, confirming, re-evaluating, and speculating, the draft is finally over and done with. With all of the picks selected and most likely to be signed in the coming weeks, we (as analysts), must go out and analyze every single pick and go through where teams may or may not have gone wrong in their individual selections and list some possible solutions or corrections. In this article I will be reviewing the team with the (former) fourth overall pick: the Cleveland Browns. For 50 years the Browns and the city of Cleveland have experienced heartbreak after heartbreak after heartbreak (sorry former Lebron, Grady Sizemore and Jim Brown fans). In the past drafts, Cleveland has seen it’s 22nd overall selections in Brady Quinn and Brandon Weeden (both QBs) fail miserably. No fear though, the year is 2014 and the Browns have one of the best draft classes in recent years to select from. In this article, I will be going through all of the Browns’ selections, what was predicted prior to the draft and how they scored according to the certified Demolder Rating System (trademark pending). The 4-12 Browns had the 4th overall pick in this year’s draft, what would occur next, not even Cleveland could have imagined.

    Excellent analysis and I think the score at B- was smack on. I gotta tell yuh I am a little excited but am really hoping Hoyer is healthy and stays that way so Manziel can take the time to grow in experience and be effective when he get the opportunity.
    Looking forward to Joe Bitonio laying the lumber on rushers. Got an open mind on Justin Gilbert but was not pleased based on what was available at the 8th pick but let’s see what he can do.
