Browns’ QB coach Rip Scherer was hinting that there was a good chance that Cleveland would take a QB with its top pick

http://www.gbnreport.com/[i]~Texans field calls for Carr… ... the Texans apparently have tired of his inconsistency and want to go in another direction. If Carr is traded, the Texans would likely look for a veteran to compete with Sage Rosenfels with Jake Plummer of Denver expected to be the first choice.

Grossi reports this morning that the Texans are still holdin' out for a 3rd rounder for Carr.And not to be surprised if the Browns go after Raiders UFA Marques Tuiasasopo as another option at QB.

Just a question: anyone else get the sick feeling that Peterson is destined to be a Brown and be yet another bust? Reason I ask this, is given our injury history, and his.....it is a dangerous marriage if it happens.

Thomas isn't Boseilli-good by most accounts.

IMO it is the most important position on the offense. You can have Joe Montana back there, but if his back side is not protected he is screwed. End of story.1st Round: A-Pete 2nd Round: Levi Brown, LT from PSU or Joe Staley, LT from CMU3rd Round: Troy Smith if available or maybe if we are really lucky Justin Blalock will still be hanging around.I would feel much better about them going forward, particularly if they can get a guard or two in the fourth, fifth, or sixth round. You can usually find some pretty good guards down there.... look at Rob Simms, he started most of last year for the 'Hawks and kicked ass. There are a lot of good guards entering this year and the Browns should be able to find a couple late.To me, this draft is kind of a litmus test for the Browns FO. If they don't seriously address the O-Line in the first round or second, it will tell me all I need to know about them; it will tell me that they are self preserving cockroaches.

Dude, while I don't believe yu can have carp at OLT, I actually think it is tremendously over-rated that yo need a "franscise LT". What you need is a good, solid, day one draft quality OLT. But overspending and eating up cap allocation at OLT is unwarrented IMO when you look at good teams. I'd never draft an OLT above mid-first round. Ever.

But an OLT scores zero TDs and makes zero plays. He protects. He's not an impact player. I contend that this position has been overanalysed to the point where some overvalue it. Now I'm not saying you can put Qasim Mitchell out there and do shit. You need quality. But you dn't need top 5 picl resources spent at OLT. Rack you rack in this forum ?

Off topic here, but speaking of Alex Boone - I heard he gained 25 POUNDS between the scUM game and the NC game. Holy shit, no wonder he looked to be standing still most of the game.

I heard Troy gained weight as well.

I respect u r take bro. Know that I'm not bein' a dick, I just see it differently. Sometimes peeps take me the wrong way if I don't type back "atta boy, Luther!".
Again, not sayin' you can get by with Alpo at OLT - you can not - just saying that a good grade of sirloin will do yah just fine rather than spending on choice grade aged fillet. I reserve that for my impact player positions: touchdown makers and defensive impact players.
will also say that tOSU's issues that night were far more complex than Alex Boone, who I believe has 1st round talent potential if he develops BTW, not having his man.
