While all 32 NFL teams were represented at Notre Dame's pro-day, the Minnesota Vikings and Cleveland Browns came out in full force.

Both teams had it's Owner, General Manager and head coaches in attendance.

The Vikings have the 7th overall pick in the upcoming draft while Brady's hometown team, the Browns have the 3rd pick.

Weis' former colleague, Romeo Crennel has been impressed with Quinn's ability.

Gun to my head, right now, as we stand, late night on March 4 ... you ask me who the Browns pick is gonna be at #3 and Quinn is the answer I give you.

Im telling you, this kid is going to be a very good NFL QB.

The part of me that wants to believe this team can be a WC contender next year and a playoff team in '08 says pass on Quinn, address QB with a Carr type and pray on CF/DA ... and deal down or take APete.

The more realistic part of me that is telling me "Fuck 2007" says draft Brady Quinn.

I can live with drafting Quinn. Its seeming more obvious they are pretty serious about the guy. If this is the path they choose, I think they should start checking on Travis Henry asking price to help out the ground game.

I think the Browns DEFINITELY are considering Quinn with the pick. There is no smokescreen here, because really, why would you want a smokescreen with Quinn? No one is trying to trade up to get him or worried we will take him. The smokescreens would be on guys like A Pete or CJ, two players lots of teams want to trade up and get.

I'm starting to feel that if Quinn is there when they pick, he will be the guy. Interesting that the owner and practically the whole org was there for his workout. Is Joe Thomas or A Pete holding a private workout? If they do, it will be interesting to see who shows up from the Browns for those.....

They have to be there smokescreen or not. Drafting Quinn would have as much impact as signing Wright. Im begining to think Pup was right on spreading their money around. Steinbach was solid, the LB was OK, and the DB is so-so. :-| :neutral: :|

I think Romeo, being their horrible coach he is, feels obligated to want Quinn.
Skinny Weiss keeps saying in 3 years Quinn will be in the top three as far as QBs in the NFL.

I don't want him at all.If both Quinn and CJ are on the board and they don't either trade or take Johnson, somebody should be fired.

I agree CJ is the top talent .... but, the Browns cannot take him. There is no way in hell you can have two giant contract players a WR in this day and age of the salary cap. Unless we dump Edwards, I see no way the Browns can even consider CJ unless they take him with the 100% intent on tradig him.

The whole concept of "smokescreen" is one of the most overrated in FB fan discussion. I mean really, what is the motivation here? To get a trade up? OK.

But you look at a team like the Browns and let's say these guys represent the concensus top 4 or 5 picks on every board from a 10 year old's just getting into this stuff to Phil Savage's:

JaMarkus Russell
A Pete
Brady Quinn
Calvin Johnson
Joe Thomas

Is there REALLLY anyone there we re so fat and stocked that we wouldn't draft, even Johnson? I mean, given the coin invested in Attitude, he's be the longshot, but it is really inconceivable we don't go that way? And the others are in the cataegories of likelies.

So sactly who we trying to fool?

With this draft, and our position? believe everything and believe nothing, all at the same time. I think this is all about process and opportunities that present themselves; stuff they can't control, whether they go Colonal Flagg or not.

Man, I'm slowly jumping on the Quinn bandwagon.

And that says a lot since I hated his guts. Plus I hate Notre Dame....more than Michigan. Beside the story (and movie) of Rudy, Quinn may be the only other good thing to come out of that POS school.

Dozen, no offensive but why do you have Quinn as your aviator? I hate the guy both professionally and personally. :lol:

I don't know what i would do with myself if we actually drafted him. I think it would be a HUGE mistake.

I HATE NOTRE DAME. RUDY IS THE WORST MOVIE EVER.

With that being said, I don't really understand the hatred of picking Brady Quinn. If Joe Thomas is gone, I have no problem with picking him. So what I want to know is, what do the Anti-Quinn people say are his weaknesses? Why will he not be a good NFL QB? I don't want to know why Adrian Peterson is better. The only thing I am asking is your breakdown of Quinn. And I'm not trying to be a smart ass, just wondering what others see that I don't really see.

Its the anti ND bias, the fact that he hasn't won big games with an overmatched team. Rick Mirer. Tim Couch nightmares. That about sums it up.

This kid is Peyton Manning/Carson Palmer safe in my view.

My thing is that QB is the least of our worries or at least one of them.
It isn't just a Quinn thing.
Like I stated earlier, if CJ(and Thomas for that matter) and Quinn are there and they take Quinn over him or don't trade I'll be pissed.
I think he will be decent just not a superstar. Ever since the Couch incident, I don't want a QB that early.
The Notre Dame thing just makes it worse for me.

Here's a bunch ...

~6'6 and built like TO
~Strong arm, can make all the throws
~A good athlete
~Sound between the ears
~Played in a pro offense for four years
~Played for a pro coach the last two

This kid is the prototype. If he played on Penn State, most fans would be salivating over the chance to draft him.

But it is the one that has to be adresses through the draft. When is the last time a good QB was a FA? Have you watched Charlie play? He is brutal. Happy feet, lame ducks and bad reads.

Like I stated earlier, if CJ(and Thomas for that matter) and Quinn are there and they take Quinn over him or don't trade I'll be pissed.


I did include the "If Joe Thomas is gone" in my post. CJ is a beast, but you want to talk about the least of our worries? I think receivers is way down on the list of worries.

I think he will be decent just not a superstar


Good is better than what we have. Superstar's are extremely hard to predict at that position. It becomes more of other players believing in him to make him a superstar and you won't know that until he is in here.

Ever since the Couch incident, I don't want a QB that early


So we can never draft another DT, DE, LB, QB, WR in the first 10 picks again? Man that will be tough.

I just get a bad feeling about him, if he turns out good I'll be the 1st to admit it. Just get someone who produces. They have tons of holes so I will trust whatever PS picks.

Least of our worries? If something is the least of your worries, it means you are probably the strongest at that position. You mean to tell me our QB situation is one of the best things going for us right now?

QB, o-line, d-line and secondary are the huge holes if you ask me....and the secondary is 4th on that list since we have some playas back there.

It really IS the anti-ND bias AND fear of Tim Couch II. I understand that too.....hey, it took, what, the Bengals three times before they got it right (Klingler-Akili-Palmer).

Right now, A Pete and Quinn are my two top guys. And, I will probably continue to waffle between which one we take from now until the draft.

BTW, Quinn is sort of a hometown kid....surprised he doesn't get nearly the love Frye got. Frye's hometown is only a 1/2 hour closer.

I think QB is a HUGE need for this team, however its my opinion he isnt one of the best 5 players in this draft. It's also my opinion you can do more damage than good by drafting "of need" over "BPA". Though there are so many needs the BPA is gonna be someone "of need" so basicly Pup, I got nothing. :lol: You put it best in your article "Just get it right".

The reason I don't want him is basically I want others guys more.
The OL is still the #1 concern for me and DBs right behind it.
QB would be 3rd of 4th and they can address it in the 3rd or 4th rounds.
I know we are good at WR but I feel Calvin Johnson is way too good to pass up, no matter what.

Would he start right away if we draft him?
If trade down and got extra picks I wouldn't be too mad, just a little.
I just think there are too many guys that would help us more.

Y'all sharing any of that spleef there Doc? :P :-P :razz:

No, seriously, I'd like to issue a challenge to take this thing to the next level.

It isn't for me to say what Quinn is or is not. Not being arrogant, but it isn't up to y'all either.

Brady Quinn is a concensus highly rated player you could easily rationalize picking 3rd overall. This isn't like picking say, Gregg Olsen, 3rd overall.

My challeneg to you all is this. Rtaher than going back n forth on your own opinions, are you seeing any signs from Phil based on this off season thus far that could be construed as tipping his hand toward any of the concensus 5 ?

I'm not.

I see a guy who successfully made the play for the obvious biggest need UFA , a guy who went pretty hard after the 2nd biggest need along w/ DL - that being CB - and got out Konkacked- thank God.

I now see CB depth signed, and OLB depth / spot starter or average vet starter signed. Papers say multiple rotational quality DL men are visiting, but no confirmed sources are mentioning good starters like Robaire Smith. Papers also mention some OLmen, but confirmation is hard to find. Now we hear about Marquis, and we'll know about Droughns' bonus soon.

Any tea leaves coming out da kettle yet?

I think there is a difference between Quinn haters and those who don't want to draft him top 5 this year. I think there are better players - that doesn't mean I think he blows. And, I'm one who thinks it's really hard to win without a good player at the QB position. I also think Frye blows.

Also, the JaMarcus Russell think is puzzling to me. Before the Notre Dame game there wasn't a person in the world that felt he was the #1 pick. It wasn't even sure whether it was worth him coming out. So, he has a great game against about the worst damn BCS defense you'll ever see, the same D that made 5th or 6th round pick Troy Smith the Heisman favorite a year previously, and now he's the best player in a deep draft. Look at his performances in other step-up games. I guess this all will make him a perfect Raider.

Great point Pipe, and one I actually made to a co-wroker today who wants us to trade UP for Russell.

JB - That is a very good question. I think Phil Savage is very good at not showing his hand. I think his makeup is to have everyone guessing come draft day. I think he has shown the willingness to answer the biggest :?: in the last couple off seasons. The draft is a different story though.

He is very prone to go after BPA. The one thing I have learned is whoever they are making the most noise is the least liklely direction they are going to go.

We have seen them address O-line. We have heard them talk about QB. They have waxed poetic about AP.

The only player I have never heard them mention is....Mr. Johnson. Which got me thinking. Is there anyway this is the the player they will take? I find it hard to believe they will go with him and Braylon. That is a lot of cabbage at a position so dependent on another position they are extremely weak at (QB). I think this is EXTREMELY far fetched, so do not freak out and call me any names.

With the #3 pick, the Browns select Calvin Johnson. Then with a Ted Ginn not running or working out before the draft, the Vikings are stuck without a Wide Receiver worthy of that pick. Could we possibly pull off a Braylon, 2nd rounder for the #7 and select Brady Quinn or Adrian Peterson?

Sorry about that, my alarm clock just went off, what was I saying?

Where I see the value is netting 5 or 6 guys in the first 3 rounds. There are guys on both lines we could really,really use alot more than a glamour spot.


Okoye,Sears,Carriker,Grubbs,Staley,Moss,Tank Tyler and on and on. Dip into that pool man and really give this team some nutsack.

Browns targeting Quinn with No. 3 pick?
By Jim Corbett, USA TODAY

Cleveland Browns general manager Phil Savage is one of the most respected talent evaluators in the game, thanks in large part to his thorough nature.

After Savage addressed the media during the scouting combine, he answered several post-session questions. But as Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn was announced at the podium, Savage excused himself and did something no other GM did — he joined the media in listening to how Quinn conducted himself in the mass interview.

Quinn, who did not work out at the combine but performed for scouts at Notre Dame's first pro day Sunday, has handled characterizations that his stock has slipped since a Sugar Bowl loss to LSU and its highly touted quarterback, JaMarcus Russell.

"It's funny to kind of sit back and hear some of that," Quinn said. "You're thinking, 'Man, did I not lift today? Did somebody see me in the weight room miss a rep?'

"It's just funny, one of those things you use as motivation."

Quinn will work out again on the Fighting Irish's next pro day March 22.

Said Savage, whose team owns the third overall pick in the NFL draft April 29-30: "I like Brady. He's played under a pro coach in (former New England Patriots offensive coordinator) Charlie Weis and under the scrutiny of national television every single game.

"He's a player we've spent an awful lot of time evaluating already, and the scrutiny only intensifies."
