To the victor goes the spoils. That seems to be newly promoted Cleveland Browns general manager Ray Farmer’s mantra as he gets to work. As Adam Schefter’s twitter account just reported, Farmer is brining on former Chiefs VP of Player Personnel, Bill Kuharich to Cleveland in order to help sort through the mess that he just inherited.

Kuharich worked with Farmer in Kansas City during the end of the “King” Carl Peterson era as the Pro Personnel Director from 2000 – 2006. During that time, Kuharich brought in names like Priest Holmes, Eddie Kennison, Trent Green and Willie Roaf. In 2006, he was promoted to VP of Player Personnel, a job he served in until he was released by the Chiefs in 2009. During that time he brought in Tamba Hali, Dwayne Bowe, Glenn Dorsey, Branden Albert, Brandon Flowers and Jamaal Charles.
Kuharich is widely regarded as one of the best evaluators of talent in the NFL. He will now undertake the daunting task of drafting picks with the Cleveland Browns fourth pick in teh 2014 draft. It’ll be interesting to see how this goes. Good luck, Mr. Kuharich.
