NFL Draft 2012: Cleveland Browns Reportedly Taking Brandon Weeden

Jay Glazer has the official scoop that the Cleveland Browns are going to address quarterback with the No. 22 pick in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft with Oklahoma State’s Brandon Weeden. Now that Kendall Wright was taken at No. 20 by the Tennessee Titans, the team has moved to quarterback to supplant Colt McCoy as the starter or at least provide another option for an offense that anemic last season.

Weeden was reportedly one of the possibilities for the Chiefs in the second round, it’s clear that the Chiefs will have to look another direction for quarterback. Brock Osweiler is a possible target in the middle rounds as is Kirk Cousins. The Chiefs also remain open for a guy like Wisconsin’s Russell Wilson in the middle rounds as well.

Weeden is often slammed for his age and he will be 29 years old later this season. However, he remains one of the best quarterbacks available in the draft.
