STILLWATER — A look at the top three possible NFL destinations for Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden:


Current starter: Colt McCoy completed 57.2 percent of his passes for 2,733 yards, 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in his first season as the full-time starter. He ranked 25th in the NFL in quarterback rating (74.6)

Offensive scheme: West Coast

Supporting cast: The Browns are in desperate need for help at the offensive skill positions, especially after losing running back Peyton Hillis to Kansas City in free agency. They'll likely address that with the No. 4 overall pick, probably taking either Alabama running back Trent Richardson or Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon.

Coach/franchise: The Browns are tied with the Raiders for the second-longest active playoff drought in the NFL, making their last postseason appearance in 2002. Team president Mike Holmgren is one of the most respected minds in football. Pat Shurmur went 4-12 in his first season as a head coach in 2011.

City/fan base/quality of life: Though they have often suffered, the Browns are known for having some of the most rabid fans in the NFL.

Could also take a QB at: No. 4 overall (Ryan Tannehill)

Chance Weeden lands here: 70 percent


Current starter:Matt Moore returns after throwing for 2,497 yards, 16 touchdowns and nine interceptions last season. Miami also signed veteran David Garrard to compete for the job.

Offensive scheme: West Coast

Supporting cast: Reggie Bush may have revived his career last season with 1,086 rushing yards and 296 receiving yards. But the Dolphins need to add a wide receiver at some point during the draft after trading Brandon Marshall (1,214 yards, six touchdowns in 2011) to the Bears last month.
