253 draft picks taken over the weekend transformed NFL rosters in a matter of days. Around the League will examine the aftershocks by asking one post-draft burning question for all 32 teams.
Did Cleveland solve longstanding QB issues with the Weeden pick?
It remains to be seen to whom the rookie quarterback will throw. After the Browns selected Richardson and Weeden, many expected the team to upgrade its abysmal receiving corps. The failure to do so remains a baffling footnote to an otherwise solid haul.
What happened next led to hundreds of remote controls being launched at television sets along the shores of Lake Erie. With the receiver class shrinking at a rapid clip, the Browns selected defensive tackle John Hughes with the 87th pick. Hughes was as surprised as we were and later admitted he didn't expect to be drafted -- at least not anywhere near No. 87.
"An outstanding quarterback brings synergy to the whole team. Just like the addition of a running back helps the quarterback," Shurmur told the Akron Beacon Journal. "If a quarterback that throws the ball accurately, on time, makes the receivers looks good. Receivers that make circus catches or make the hard catches make the quarterback look good. When the quarterback has a little bit more time to throw it, because the line is doing their job, it makes everything look good. I think that it is all connected, I really do."
