Priorities #1 through #Very High Number should be to acquire one of those 2-3. Wrong, wrong, worst-possible place to be reaching for need. BPA, BPA, BPA that high. If that means Clowney or Barr, so be it. (I love Watkins, too, though. But smaller receivers can be tricky to project. I mean, I don't love him as much as I did Peter Warrick--you know?)With the Indy pick, I don't love the positional value, but I don't hate it either: it looks like there might be a few decent RTs available there. My preference would be to take advantage--the way the smart teams do--if we can catch a prospect who's unexpectedly slid that far, but if that opportunity doesn't present itself, OT would make some sense, I suppose.Rb ratings for this class have been schizo as a MF'er. I like Melvin Gordon, but it seems like CBS doesn't think he'll declare any longer. But how much are we going to rely on Dion Lewis to return to a featureish role? If "kind of," maybe we're looking for a power back complementary player like Hyde or the LSU guy. (Isaiah Crowell in the late, late rounds intrigues me, too.)I'd love to add some DBs, but besides the round 1 guys, I don't know of anyone in particular that I'm interested in targeting. ILB, too.QB = BORIS OR BUST : )

6. Cleveland BrownsI think the Browns are already pretty good. They have just four wins this season, but they have an excellent coaching staff and a lot of talented players like left tackle Joe Thomas, cornerback Joe Haden and defensive lineman Phil Taylor. With some QB help, they can be a factor next year.This is a well run organization that has not just the brains, but the money ($40 million in cap space) and the ammunition with all of those draft picks. Who they end up taking with their first pick is difficult to project now because: 1) The Browns could trade up with a team like Houston or Oakland, and 2) we don't know yet which players will be there. Is it Bridgewater? It could very well be, but we don't know yet if he will declare for the draft.Plan B for the Browns might be to trade back from this spot and take a quarterback like Derek Carr. A good example of this is what Buffalo did last season, when it traded back eight spots and took EJ Manuel and also received a second-round pick in the process.

Shocker, I know.

B/C sure as shit when we make these regime changes we seem to always switch up our defensive philosophy rendering some of our current talent/players less valuable or meh.Frankly I think getting our hands on Clowney is a pipe dream strictly b/c his name is just to damn fitting for this organization.

Wonder why that kid doesn't get the same run as some other guys.I like Petty, but a) he's made it clear that he's coming back next year, despite being old as shit.and b) he still probably needs to go back. Has some nice tools, and a lot of speed in a big body, but some of the throws he made last night were real head scratchers. I'd still like him as a late first/early second kind of pick though.
