Trent Richardson easily.

Let's look back to 2007 when AD fell into the vikings laps. At that point RB was arguably the most solid position on the team outside of DT and G. People forget that Chester Taylor was a 1,200 yard rusher the year before and would have been more than capable of being a solid starter for another year or two. The thing the vikings didn't have though, was a game changer on offense. So the vikings took the physical freak in AD and we all know what happened from there.

Cleveland's situation this year is very similar to Minnesota's in '07

The point is that with a pick that high, you don't draft for need. You draft the guy that's going to be the superstar. You can get quality guys at positions of need later on in the draft, you can't find the freakish talents in the later rounds that will be available in the top 10. Right now, Cleveland is in the same situation that Minnesota was in five years ago. They don't have a guy that can score on any given play and break a game open. While the browns might not need a RB, they do need a playmaker and Trent Richardson is probably the best one in the draft.

The problem with that is that you can create a great Rushing Attack with later picks utilising a committee system. Of the top 10 Rushing Attacks in the NFL last year only 3 had a single RB account for more than 1/2 their yardage (it would have been 4 if AD hadn't hurt himself). It is easier to rush without elite talent than it is to throw, catch, block or defend without elite talent.

Plus at #4 Richardson isn't the only potential star left on the board. IMO Kalil and Claiborne are just as highly rated prospects and Blackmon is just a notch lower despite also having star potential. If those 3 and the 3 QBs are off the board then Richardson would make a lot of sense since he would be the highest rated prospect, regardless of position, but a significant margin, at #4 that's not the case.
