2012-Trent Richardson was obviously a good pick. Weeden was all Holmgren. Billy Winn did really well for a 6th round pick. Good rotational guy.
At least we know Heckert can find some good defensive talent. The Browns got much better on defense because of those draft picks. Heckert is immensely better than Fat Scott.
I remember hearing some of the talking heads right before we played Cleveland say Joe Haden is the key to their entire defense. They thought VERY highly of him.
