Can you believe the Browns actually did it?
They not only drafted star Alabama running back Trent Richardson, they boldly took no chances and traded up a spot to make sure they nabbed their man at No. 3 in the NFL draft. Can you believe the Browns drafted a player whose jersey you'd immediately want to own, a player who you can't wait to see?
Then they selected Oklahoma State's 28-year-old quarterback Brandon Weeden with the No. 22 pick, their other first-round selection.
Browns fans, you want a new offense? You've got a new offense. Who knew? Not even Weeden and Richardson could imagine this when they both visited the Browns training complex for their pre-draft interviews on the same day.
Adding Richardson makes you wish training camp opened Monday. Here's a 5-foot-9, 228-pound running back who set an Alabama single-season rushing record of 1,679 yards for a team that won the national championship.
