On Friday, the Cleveland Browns opened rookie mini-camp, which allowed first round draft choice Brandon Weeden to make his first impression on the team and their fan base. When the Browns selected Weeden with the 22nd overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft, many came to the conclusion that the 28-year old Oklahoma State quarterback was the franchise's new "arm of the future." On Friday, it became clear that, that was how Weeden viewed the situation as well.

Taking a majority of his snaps from under center on Friday, it was stated in reports that Weeden looked comfortable, had a strong arm and had quite a bit of velocity. Luckily for him, Weeden prefers to play from under center.

Weeden concluded his day by saying the magic words that every football fan wants to hear (and by all accounts hears all the time):
