Now that the world has realized why the Browns gave up on Trent Richardson so quickly, it’s safe to say that a lot of us were wrong.

One of those who gave the selection a deeper look was Hall of Famer Jim Brown. He predicted that Trent’s limited moves, lack of top end speed, and lack of supporting talent in Cleveland would lead to him being a draft bust? Who would have known that the greatest running back of all time would know a thing or two about what makes a good back?
