It’s way, way too early to draw any meaningful conclusions about the young NFL season.

So let’s do it. Here are the top five most, and least, surprising developments thus far:

TOP 5 MOST SURPRISING:

1. BROWNS PACK IT IN: Previous Cleveland Browns management, led by Mike Holmgren, thought so much of running back Trent Richardson they traded up just one spot to get him, to third overall, and surrendered the club’s fourth-, fifth- and seventh-round 2012 picks to do so.

Seventeen months later, Richardson is an Indianapolis Colt. The Browns got Indy’s 2014 first-round pick in return.

What’s the bigger shocker -- that an NFL team would throw in the towel on the season after two games, or give up on a No. 3 draft so soon? Tough choice.
