The 2014 NFL Draft will always be known in Cleveland as one filled with way more swings and misses than home runs.
In his first draft as GM of the Cleveland Browns, Ray Farmer made a ton of selections which blew up in his face. His quarterback, Johnny Manziel, had an out of control personal life which derailed his rookie season. Running back Terrance West had big issues with maturity, leading to him being traded this past summer. Despite knowing Browns wideout Josh Gordon was facing a hefty suspension, Farmer refused to select anyone from what many consider one of the best receiving classes the league has seen in a long time.
One of his biggest duds from this draft group, though, was the first selection he made. Drafted eighth overall, cornerback Justin Gilbert has yet to show anyone he was worth Cleveland’s consideration.
