Former Alabama running back Trent Richardson is widely considered the best running back in this year's NFL Draft and the Cleveland Browns, who have the No. 4 pick in Thursday night's first round, have been mentioned as a possible destination for the former Heisman finalist. One legendary former member of the Browns franchise, however, said he would not be pleased to see his former team select Richardson that high in the Draft.

Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown, who played for Cleveland from 1957 until 1965, was asked by ESPN radio on Thursday what he thought of the possibility of the Browns drafting Richardson in the first round.
