Browns Rookie Minicamp: Brandon Weeden Throws Well, Struggles With Snaps

The Cleveland Browns opened their 2012 rookie minicamp on Friday. It was the first chance to get a look at new quarterback Brandon Weeden on the field since being drafted with the 22nd pick in the 1st round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Reviews were mixed.

Weeden struggled with snaps under center. According to the Akron Beacon Journal, the team's newest quarterback fumbled two snaps in practice. Weeden worked mostly out of the shotgun at Oklahoma State, so it may take him some time to adjust. Despite that, Weeden sounded an optimistic tone about the process.

"It's getting comfortable. But I'll be honest, I like being under center more because you can see what's going on and you get the ball immediately. If I had to pick one of the two, not that I don't like being in the shotgun, but I like being under center."

The good news is that Weeden was throwing the ball well in practice.
