If Heckert is your Pro Personnel guy, I'd be worried.

His FA record was just atrocious.

I for one didn't drink the kool-aid everyone else did on Heckert.


Let's just say it's probably going to be easier for him to land quality FAs with Peyton Manning as your QB, and not Colt McCoy/Jake Delhomme/Seneca Wallace/Brandon Weeden.

One thing he never did was blow cap space on big names, though. He left the Browns with a ton of cap space.

Bottom line: The Broncos got themselves a solid addition to their front office, and one more reason for Browns' fans to hate Elway and his Donkeys.

I guess the proof of Heckert's excellence lies in the fact that the Browns have essentially the same foundation after one offseason under a new regime.

Brandon Weeden
Trent Richardson
Josh Gordon
Greg Little
Travis Benjamin
Jordan Cameron
Jason Pinkston
Shaun Luavao
Mitchell Schwartz
Phil Taylor
Billy Winn
John Hughes
Jabaal Sheard
Craig Robertson
LJ Fort
Joe Haden
TJ Ward
Tashaun Gipson

All starters or expected major contributors in 2013 drafted in 3 years under Heckert.

Seriously, Broncos fans. You got a good one.

Just let Elway pick the QBs.

Posted this in the Browns forum a couple of weeks ago: Heckert and the 2012 draft.

If Weeden pans out, we could potentially have taken from this draft:

Franchise RB (Richardson) 1300+ total yards, 12TDs with broken ribs.
Productive starting QB (Weeden)
Franchise RT (Schwartz) All-Rookie team.
#1WR (Gordon) 800+ 5TDs.
Productive NT (Hughes) 34 tackles, 3 sacks.
Punt returner and contributing WR (Benjamin) 300 yards, 2TD and PR TD.
Starting ILB? (Michael-Johnson)
Rotational DE (Winn) Sack and INT.

And then maybe even a dimeback (Wade) and fullback/h-back (Smelley).
