At first glance, the Cleveland Browns had a solid 2011 draft. The team made an epic first round trade, securing two first round picks in 2012, and managed to draft players who can make an impact early.
But even teams on a roll can make mistakes. When the Browns drafted USC tight end Jordan Cameron in the fourth round, the team accidentally called Cameron Jordan, who had been drafted in the first round by the New Orleans Saints. Naturally, Jordan corrected them and the Browns then called Cameron to welcome him to the team.
