QB Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma State

Browns, 1st round. Okla. St.: Good size. Above-average hand size. Short arms.

Positives: Good play fakes. Can roll away from pressure and throws accurately on the run. Above-average velocity. Very good on timing routes. Smooth footwork on dropback. Very nice touch when needed.

Negatives: Slightly elongated delivery. Spread QB. 28 years old. Slightly inaccurate. Below-average speed. Mechanics need work — often throws while falling backwards. Suspect decisions under pressure and needs to learn when to throw ball away.

Projection: Should be the Browns starter right away ahead of Colt McCoy. At his age, though, I wonder if he’s already reached his ceiling. Likely has 5-6 years of football left in him, but he could have an Andy Dalton-like impact in first year. I expect his ceiling is limited, though, to QB2 status in fantasy. Draft as 2012 QB3 with QB2 upside in 2013 and beyond.
