Richardson can be the pick because the Browns let Peyton Hillis sign with the Kansas City Chiefs and didn't replace him in free agency. Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon could be the choice because the Browns don't have a No. 1 wide receiver. And Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill might be the selection because the Browns have made it known they are looking to upgrade at quarterback over Colt McCoy.
This is why ESPN's Todd McShay writes in this week's "Hot Button" that the Browns have the toughest decision in the top 10 this year.
McShay thinks Tannehill has the potential to be "a major upgrade" over McCoy:
What makes that choice even harder is that having a quality quarterback is the surest way to beat the system in today's NFL. The spending limits imposed by the salary cap mean teams have more holes than ever, and no player on the field can exploit more of an opponent's weaknesses than the quarterback.
McShay, though, says it looks like the decision will come down to Richardson and Blackmon:
After months of debating what the Browns will do, the wait will finally be over in a couple of days.
