Brandon Weeden To Browns With No. 22 Pick In 2012 NFL Draft

Posted: Updated:

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — The Cleveland Browns picked Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden at No. 22 in the NFL draft, a selection that could signal the end of Colt McCoy as a starter.

Weeden is a 28-year-old former minor league baseball player, whose age was seen as a downside by some teams. However, the Browns view him as a potential upgrade at the most vital position. McCoy has struggled in his two seasons as a starter, and although he has more pro experience than Weeden, the Browns will surely give the rookie a chance to take over Cleveland's offense.

Browns general manager Tom Heckert said last week that he didn't have any problem with Weeden's age.

Earlier, the Browns moved up to the No. 3 spot to select Alabama running back Trent Richardson.
