NFL Power Rankings Final: Browns Finish At No. 29 For CBS Sports

The Cleveland Browns can now wash their hands of a disappointing season and look forward to the 2012 NFL Draft. Despite a strong passing defense and, really, a strong defense overall, they failed to impress on offense and it cost them. One consolation is the fact that they have a high draft pick, and that's now the most important thing to consider. Will they use it to draft a quarterback? Most people seem to think so. Colt McCoy might just be done in Cleveland. The team failed to best the Steelers at the end of the season and, as such, are near the bottom of the power rankings.

CBS Sports has them lower than most in their final power rankings:

29. They have two first-round picks and need to make a bold move up to get a quarterback. Colt McCoy isn't the answer.

Yes, No. 29 is actually lower than where most have them, which is, you know, right about No. 28. So they're not too far off at this point, but they are still one of the bottom five teams in the league in just about every major ranking. Is this where Browns fans expected to be at this point of the season?
