The Cleveland Browns are on the clock.  The Browns had a big draft in 2012, picking up a couple of key offensive starters with running back Trent Richardson and quarterback Brandon Weeden with a pair of first round picks.  Unfortunately, those solid pickups didn’t translate to wins, going just 5-11 in a season when the usually tough Steelers had a down year.

The Browns cleaned house and brought in new head coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who will look to reload and right the Browns ship.  They have a couple of pieces on offense with Richardson at running back and Weeden set to compete with former Bear Jason Campbell for quarterbacking duties.   Could the Browns go after a wide receiver to add a skill position player?  Could they look to add a pass rusher or help in the secondary?
