Tom Heckert’s best:
■ Remade a roster that was one of the league’s oldest into the league’s youngest.
■ Draft picks included starters cornerback Joe Haden, defensive tackle Phil Taylor, running back Trent Richardson, quarterback Brandon Weeden, strong safety T.J. Ward and wide receiver Greg Little.
■ Richardson broke Jim Brown’s team rookie records for rushing yards (950) and rushing touchdowns (11).
■ Weeden set the Browns’ rookie record for passing yards (3,385).
■ None of his 28 draft picks in three years made the Pro Bowl.
■ Weeden threw more interceptions (17) than touchdowns (14) as a rookie.
■ Failed to trade with the St. Louis Rams to acquire quarterback Robert Griffin III.
■ Traded to the Atlanta Falcons the draft rights that could have been used to select wide receiver Julio Jones sixth overall in 2011.
■ Fourth-round 2011 draft pick fullback Owen Marecic has contributed little.
