    Akron Beacon Journal - NFL Network's Mayock thinks Browns should pick RG3
    The Browns could embark on a thrilling journey if they commit to drafting Robert Griffin III in late April.

    National Football Post - Is Brandon Weeden a premium draft choice?
    Brandon Weeden has had a great career at Oklahoma State. He has been a two-year starter and has led the Cowboys to a combined 23-3 record over those two seasons. His passing stats have been off the charts. In 2010 he completed 342 of 511 passes for 4,277 yards, 34 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. In 2011 he was 408 of 664 for 4,727 yards, 37 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He is a little better than a 69 percent career passer. Those numbers are as good as any quarterback in the last few drafts. With that being said, should he be a premium draft pick (1st or 2nd round)? Many of the draftniks say yes, I say no. Here’s why. (Insider) - Plenty of running backs offer later-round value in draft
    Not one of the running backs who finished in the top five in the NFL in rushing yards in 2011 was drafted in the first round. Three came from the second round, but the Atlanta Falcons' Michael Turner was drafted in the fifth round in 2004 and the Houston Texans signed Arian Foster as an undrafted free agent in 2009.
