Are the Browns with all their new people really this stupid? I believe in the draft experts that talk about in a normal year these guys (Qbs) are not first round picks. Mitchell T.'s best comparison is Jimmy G? Myock said that Teddy B. coming out of college is better than any QB in this draft. Now talk is Browns are taking Mitchell T at 1???

Watched coverage a little more the last week and I read a lot, I just hide it well. O.K. before I spin off the planet. Who is going to take Mitchell T. before 12. Hell I wouldn't take him at 12. Are they seriously trying to make up for not taking Wentz? Myock has Mitchell T. ranked about #30 on his big boards. Ok even if you divide by 2 because it is a quarterback that gets you to 15. Do they really believe John Lynch in San Francisco with his first ever pick would pick the Bust or average prospect at #2 overall? Leave it to Cleveland to break the draft. Their fans deserve better. Kiper and McShay have Mitchell T going #1.

I think Myles Garrett the most exciting prospect in years. He so clear #1 in this draft, that I believe 31 teams would pick him. Of those teams none would probably take Mitchell T at 12.

Watched Mitchell T on Game Changers with Mooch. He is Tim Couch all over again. Deer in headlights Dodo Bird. I don't use the term Dodo often but this kid seems like a Dodo to me. No other way to say it.

I like Deshaun Watson if he were to go to Cardinals or Chiefs. None of this guys should be expected to start. Cleveland (Wentz) and Houston (Derek Carr) are in my opinion trying to make up for not drafting the franchise guy that was there for them.


I watched that too. I had the exact same impression.

That would be crazy.

Need to take the best Guard left at #86 and then take "Group Sex" at #120.

2 Hrs and 25 minutes....tick-tock, tick-tock.

I would be stoked to get Mixon at 48.....doesn't seem like he'll last, such a crap-shoot to predict these GM's on "character guys".

Anyone clear on whether we'll run a zone blocking scheme? That might dictate the best fits for OL.

Not having a 1st round pick takes a lot of excitement away from the draft but if we can get a solid OL, DL and one of the Oklahoma running backs this will be a good draft. Here is to hoping the Pukers, Lion and Bears all get 1st round busts

Kevin I agree, we need someone to take the pressure off of the passing game unless we get a WR with great speed and I believe Mixon would accomplish that.

I was wondering the same thing. I have seen many bruiser type guards associated with us that would not necessarily translate to zone blocking.

That was done when Group sex was rumored third round now he is rumored out of draft ala L.Collins if not clearly exonerated by 3rd day. So we trade down take him and Brantley both with 7th rounders.

How about Dorian Johnson G Pittsburgh?

I just saw the Gruden qb thing.

I really like Peterman from Pittsburgh. What would this board do if we took a guy like this in the 3rd or 4th round. He grades out as 63rd best player in this draft.

He looks like the most ready pro. I know he couldn't beat out Dobbs, but that could be coach preference. Think Brady versus the baseball player who I forgot. Drew ... Might have even tried on a Viking jersey.

120. TE George Kittle
128. WR Carlos Henderson
160. LB Elijah Lee
199. OT Brad Seaton

Fulfills the 2 school requirement

The Cowboys are going to have Drew Pearson make one their draft pick announcements.

http://www.star-telegram.com/sports/nfl/dallas-cowboys/cowboys-corner-blog/article146822729.html

They should have Nate Wright walk up to the podium, then Pearson come out and push him out of the way and announce the pick.


No, Wright would come and jokingly try and stop Pearson from simply making it to the podium but he'd fall down again untouched.


Nope, it was one of the most blatant pushups of all-time considering the stakes.

Pearson has already admitted he pushed off.

Todd I don't know if what Shakey says is true, but I simply can't fathom how you can watch that play and think Pearson didn't push off.


Because my powers of observation are above reproach.



Good to know for my next foursome...
