"Obviously I hope I'm the guy," Weeden told Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal at Friday's rookie minicamp. "I'm gonna do everything in my power to be that guy."
After a first taste of the Browns' West Coast-style offense, Weeden told Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer he prefers to play under center because he "can see things better (and) get the ball faster."
Playing under center was a primary concern with Weeden, who flourished from the shotgun in Oklahoma State's half-field-read offense. Cam Newton shattered doubts that he'd suffer in a pro-style attack after playing in the spread at Auburn. (Of course, we're at the point in which comparing rookies to Newton makes little sense -- he's a special player.)
The rookie was asked to describe what pairing with running back Trent Richardson will mean for the city of Cleveland. Weeden thought for a minute before answering.
