Three Browns named Midseason All-Rookie

Matt Williamson from ESPN.com does an excellent job in tracking rookies all season. That's why his Midseason All-Rookie teamInsider is as solid as they come.

It's an Insider piece, so you'll need a subscription to look at the entire team. But I have received clearance to pass along that three Browns were selected: running back Trent Richardson, wide receiver Josh Gordon and offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz. There was only one other AFC North rookie to make the team, Bengals guard Kevin Zeitler.

Williamson chose Richardson over Tampa Bay's Doug Martin, which likely will stir up some debate. "Choosing between Richardson and Martin was really splitting hairs, but I let the fact that I think Richardson will soon rival Adrian Peterson as the best running back in the NFL sway me just a bit," Williamson wrote.

Here are rookies from the division who received honorable mention: Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden, Ravens offensive tackle Kelechi Osemele, Browns defensive tackle Billy Winn, Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict and Ravens kicker Justin Tucker.
