The ineptitude that the Browns display year in and year out drafting players that never seem to pan out makes them by far the hardest team to root for in the NFL.

It was the second time in three years a consensus top-five player fell to the Jets at No. NY has until May 3 to decide if they will be exercising the fifth-year option in Pryor's contract.
