Someone like Carr? Harrington? Maybe Carr or Harrington will never live up to their draft status, but with us, they no longer need to. They'll only have to perform slightle better that Dilfer did when he was here. They could do that.

f Oakland takes Jamarcus at #1, Phil sits at 3 and takes Quinn OR if CJ is there he plays Tampa against Minny & Atlanta (plus da Bears if they trade w/ Wash) and trades down and still gets Brady. If someone surprises him and nabs Brady, Phil will shrug his shoulders look at his extra picks and pick AD.
If Oakland takes CJ, I'm betting Phil will trade UP for Russell. He'll give a 2nd rounder this year and a 3rd next to Detroit. It'll be deja vu all over again (hey, a yogism!) for us Browns fans as Millen again appears to fleece us.

But I think Phil is gonna move the farm to get JMR and that's why he looked to fill so many holes in FA.

Braylan Edwards, Brotney Poole and Charlie Frye, would you the least bit upset?
One one hand, I think draft choices are overrated, even day ones outside of round one.

I am not sure that Braylon is worth anything (his attitude and butterfingers undermine any promise he has) and Charlie Frye? I think we could've gotten a 5th rounder for him last year, this year I am not so sure.One one hand, I think draft choices are overrated, even day ones outside of round one.That above all other things is the problem with the Browns, they have had a horrible conversion rate with 2nd and 3rd round picks. 2nd and 3rd round picks are supposed to be the foundation of your team, you get the big playmakers in round 1, but rounds 2-4 is where the bulk of your starters should come from. Teams like NE, and Indy that are perpetually good have done well in rounds 2-4. Teams that perpetually suck, like the Browns fail miserably outside of the first round (in general) and that leads us to our current state, where we have 17 of 35 core guys.I like the idea of converting JMR to LT. In all seriousness, I bet he is pushing 280 or so by the beginning of camp going into his second season. I think he will eat his way out of the league.

We have too many other needs and I think Phil will be happy to get Quinn. I'd hate to see him give up high picks when we have such desparate needs at CB and RT.

And he himself is billed as a "draft guru". That seems to be what he enjoys. Why then would he trade all his picks? That's really his chance to "shine". Otherwise why would Lerner the Usurer keep him around?
