#44-2012 Brandon Weeden-QB-Cleveland Browns- Weeden had a pretty productive rookie year with a team that someday could be the team on the rise. Weeden threw for 3,385 yards 14 touchdowns 17 interceptions.  The Browns played well in the 2nd half of the season with Weeden leading them, but I still wouldn’t be drafting Weeden as your starting fantasy QB in 2013.

Retro #44-2002- Tim Couch-QB-Cleveland Browns- Kind of ironic that two Browns QB’s show up in the same countdown. Couch was a spread offense QB in college and it never worked in the NFL will that and playing for an expansion team.  Couch was out of the NFL too soon for the money he was paid.

Looking Ahead #44

ESPN- Marques Colston-WR New Orleans Saints- Colston finished #45 and is #44 pre-season ranked, that is a model of consistency!

CBS-Victor Cruz-WR New York Giants- 2013 is a different animal when slot guys are the ones coveted wide receivers. I really didn’t think Cruz would be able to duplicate 2011 but he did so you can’t count him down in 2013, right?
