The last three quarterbacks the Cleveland Browns have taken in the first round of the NFL Draft have been, in order, Johnny Manziel, Brandon Weeden, and Brady Quinn. Each of those players was selected with the No. 22 pick. Quinn is out of the league and Weeden is a third-string player for the Dallas Cowboys.
The Browns hope–and likely need–Manziel to be better. Expectations are already quite high for the former Heisman winner.

Manziel has been told by the Browns owner, Jimmy Haslam, that he is the backup quarterback and needs to start acting like it. “This isn’t Hollywood,” Haslam reportedly said. Cleveland, though, is a city that hasn’t won an NFL playoff game in the 21st century.
