    Walter Football & the Browns

    The grades assigned to the Browns picks by Walter Football are too funny not to post for everyone to see, particularly John Hughes at 87, Matt Millen...

    3. Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama: A- Grade
    This would be an A if Mike Holmgren wasn't duped into trading up to No. 3. Still, he gave up just a fourth-, a fifth- and a seventh-round pick for him, so I'm not going to penalize Cleveland very much. Trent Richardson is the right pick because he's the best player available and fills the greatest need. Colt McCoy was decent with Peyton Hillis before Hillis started dreaming about becoming a CIA agent, so maybe McCoy can become competent again.

    22. Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State: F Grade
    I gave the Eagles an F last year for drafting a 27-year-old guard, so I'm dishing out yet another F for a geriatric player. Brandon Weeden turns 29 soon. By the time his first contract is up, he'll be 33. As in, near the end of his career. This move reaks of panic; Cleveland really wanted Kendall Wright, and Mike Holmgren apparently did not know what to do once the Titans made the surprise selection.

    37. Mitchell Schwartz, OT, California: C+ Grade
    There were three receivers worth taking here, so the Browns selected... a right tackle? What? I like Mitchell Schwartz; he projects as a decent pro. But who the hell is Brandon Weeden going to throw to? And what about Cordy Glenn and Jonathan Martin?

    87. John Hughes, DT, Cincinnati: Matt Millen Lonely Night Kielbasa Porn Grade
    I mocked John Hughes in the seventh round. He wasn't above No. 249 on any major big board. He doesn't even fill a need. This is a terrible selection.

    100. Travis Benjamin, WR, Miami: D Grade
    Scouts Inc. had the highest grade on Travis Benjamin than anyone else, and they slotted him at No. 173. This is not the type of pick you make atop Round 4.

    They are the Browns for a reason.

    Pap, I'm almost positive that if the Browns had back-to-back picks in an early round they would trade up with themselves for a couple of late rounders in next years draft.
