I'm reading this years 3rd and next years 1st.

EDIT - I was wrong. It is this year's 2nd and next years 1st. Quinn and Thomas better be worth this.

Oh my !!!!!!!!!!! Welcome aboard boys ! Brilliant Phil! Next years QB's coming out of college aren't close to Quinn. Best pick for the price. Charlie & DA better get to the film room.

for those who believe the "draft value chart" the 22nd and 36th add to 1320 "points", which is roughly the number 10 pick overall. So, unless we would be drafting in the top 10 next year, this is a wash. Coupled with Quinn could be the franchise QB for the next 10 years, this one is ballsy but sound.

EDIT Wow - my math is faulty. We give up a 36th and get a 22nd - which is 780-540 or 240 to us. The pick (again, according to the charts worth 240) is the 70th overall - meaning we "should" have given up this years second and third to move up to 22nd. I guess you can throw all this out when talking about a potential franchise QB, but we gave up a lot. Helluva lot.

ESPN reporting that Baltimore was the other team negotiating with Dallas for the pick. Agree with mattvan, this is a ballsy but sound move. If Quinn becomes the franchise QB and face of the franchise for 10+ years, this will go down as one of the best trades in team history. Time will tell.

Not sure how I feel about this one. If the Browns end up with the third pick next year (again), this will look like a big rip off. I hope quinn is worth it. My gut says probably.

Best first day draft, or draft period, for the Browns in almost 30 years.

giving up a second rounder to move up a year in the first round?

That's not overpaying.

Plus it kept him away from the Ravens.

Just returned from the Draft Day Bash -- some people almost had tears of joy after the pick.

I am hoping to see Quinn next season, early... say after the bye.

Hey, if the o-line can keep a qb on their feet, let him start now. Quinn protects the football

Quinn is head and shoulders more talented than either Frye or Anderson. I hope Quinn is given the opportunity in training camp to win a starting spot. I have no problem with a rookie QB starting providing he shows in camp and exhibition games that he deserves to be starting.

Count me in as one who is enthused.

I loved the Thomas pick and didn't want Quinn at #3. Thomas completes the OL and actually makes it look pretty good. A solid running game may be around the corner with a healthy Lewis. This opens the door for the passing game.

Enter Brady Quinn.

Excellent move up. Love him at #22 and believe that the Browns have blown everyone else away in the draft this year.

I don't know if he'll start out of the gates, but he's much closer to being ready than most rookies. The offense shouldn't be hard for him to grasp and he could earn the spot if they let him.

A solid OL and decent-to-good performance at QB should make the D's job easier and give them more of a cushion in some game.

Looking forward to the 3rd round pick and seeing what we pick up tomorrow. This is the first time I can remember being absolutely knocked out by the Browns' draft, not needing to convince myself that it was okay. Last year was good and I really liked Wimbley, but this year is stellar thus far.

ND plays a pretty decent schedule, but they get beat by every good team they play (and some bad ones).

Assuming Quinn will wear #10. Any chance he wears #19?

It sounds like a lot, but it's the price that had to be paid.

In order to move back into the 1st round, we had to give up our 2nd and next year’s 1st rounder. Assume that trading next year’s 1st rounder for Number 22 in this year’s draft as a wash. So we essentially gave up our second round pick for Brady Quinn. But, we moved up to get Eric Wright, who many people think we would’ve taken at 36 anyway, so we got that 2nd round pick back. The trade back up to the 2nd round cost the Browns a 3rd and a 4th (they swapped 6th round picks).

So, in the end, it cost the Browns a 3rd and a 4th round pick to draft Brady Quinn.

Hoodoo, I agree ... I am very happy with how things went today. Things really just played out perfect.

I don't think anyone would have believed that we could emerge from this draft with Joe Thomas, Brady Quinn, and Eric Wright.

Booyah.

I never hugged so many grown men in one day.

The scene when the trade was announced was something I'll forget.

Is this Matthews/Newsome where we get two franchise building blocks for the next 10+ years? God I hope so.

What. A. Day.

In Phil I fucking Trust.

So, does Brady Quinn start September 9 against Pitt?

I know someone said after the bye. What about the week before the bye? October 14th. Home game. Against the...Dolphins!

It could give them the bye week to really break down the performance and make some tweaks.

Normally, I'd say that would be a bad idea.

But with the roster the way it is now...

What is Brady going to learn watching Frye? That it's a bad idea to bail on a play early, run to your right, and try to throw the ball back against your body into triple coverage?

And Anderson... I'm sure his 3 NFL starts have given him worlds of experience over Quinn.

Everyone touted Quinn's greatest attribute as being "NFL Ready". If that's the case, give him every chance to win the starting job in Training Camp.
