No. 3 Cleveland Browns: RB Trent Richardson, Alabama –- Richardson helped lead Alabama to two BCS championships and last year won the Doak Walker Award and was a Heisman finalist. Some evaluators think he’s the most promising college back since Adrian Peterson. Richardson didn’t participate in the scouting combine after undergoing minor knee surgery, but he recently escorted a cancer patient to her high school prom.

Comment: The Browns need to be able to pound the ball in the AFC North, especially when the weather turns cold, and Richardson gives them that ability.
