Pup keeps telling me that we've got to make a sexy pick if we are in the top 5.
Was Julius Peppers a sexy pick when the Panthers took him #2 ? He sure made Tucker look like he should have retired last Sunday afternoon.

I see the Browns beating the Jets, Texans, and stealing one other one along the way

I agree that anything out of South Bend is overated. Wasn't it Rick Mirer that was supposed to be the first 3 time Heismann winner ?

I understand that someone like Peterson may be too good to pass up. If so, then the 2nd round pick has to be an O lineman.

The Steelers have drafted all nine of their offensive linemen. The Bengals have drafted six of theirs. The Ravens? Six also. The Browns have drafted one. Isaac Sowells.

Melvin Fowler is starting for Minnesota, who is running the ball down people's throat, but he stunk here and we couldn't wait to get rid of him.

If the Browns take Calvin Johnson or Adrian Peterson (not to mention Ginn or Lynch), I will personally take care of Savage.
The only thing that would terrify me about taking Branch would be Pitcock going 5 picks later and ending up being a better pro.

All you have to do is look at past drafts to see that high caliber staring lineman (especially on the offensive side) can be found every year in the 2nd and third rounds.
Outside of Joe Thomas, who do you take top 10? Sam Baker has a shot, but really struggled this weekend.
Why pass on an elite talent when you KNOW that those players can be there a round or two later to fill your biggest needs? It's not like we're set any of the skill positions either (we need a no.2 receiver, an upgrade at RB, and a corner).

All I have to do is look at how the Cleveland Browns have neglected the lines in the first day of the draft and then look at the current gaping holes on their roster currently.
Alan Branch, possibly Jake Long.
Because if you dont upgrade that line, You could have Barry Sanders and Jerry Rice and it still would not matter and this team has "waited a round or two later" too many times in the past in the interest of getting that "elite talent."
There really are not any Buckeyes in this year's draft that fill any hole in the Browns. There is of course always next year, when the Browns will need the services of Alex Boone and will probably be in position to draft him

Well stated, and I will go one further. The Browns should take a sure fire playmaker with #1 if they can, whether it is a QB or RB, unless a super tackle emerges. Otherwise, they need to use 2nd and 3rd round picks on the O-line. Look at what a difference Ferguson and Mangold have made in NY. THey have started every game for a revitalized jets team.
