Cleveland Browns Grand Poobah Joe Banner - affectionately known by most Browns Fans as He Who Looks Like He Just Ate Some Rotten Tilapia - held a press conference on Saturday at the annual NFL Combine in Indy. Since everything that occurs at the Combine is completely overanalyzed and blown out of proportion, it would feel neglectful not to do it for Banner.
This statement leads me to believe that the Browns will look closely at boom-or-bust candidates like BYU DE/OLB Ziggy Ansah or Oregon DE/OLB Dion Jordan at #6 overall:
"There will be no whims, there will be no flying by the seat of our pants. So the idea of having a team that's aggressive, the players we bring in will be aggressive attacking competitive, mad as hell when we lose type of people. We're going to have an offensive and coordinator who are going to call a game with that kind of aggressiveness that we want our opponents to be on the defensive. We never want to be on the defensive. They're willing to take chances, which will occasionally blow up in our faces, but overall we think over time will prove to be successful. That will be true by the way on the player personnel front as well as the coaching front. That will be the mentality of the of the organization. So we're hiring people that will fit that culture, whether they be players, marketing people or coaches.”
He said this when asked if #6 was too high to draft a Guard:
“I mean if you knew he was John Hannah I guess maybe not but it wouldn’t fit. Again I wouldn’t rule anything out but it wouldn’t philosophically fit with how we’re approaching the priorities and how we’re building the team. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t exception or unusual situation or a player that’s so special that you wouldn’t look at.”
So don't look for the Browns to take Chance Warmack (G - Alabama) in the 1st. Also don't look for them to take a QB early:
"So I’m not telling you we would or wouldn’t pick a quarterback in the first round or the second round, I’m just not doing that. But I’m also kind of I think implying that that’s not what I expect to have happen."
And we don't have to take any of these statements with a grain of salt because Joe told us he wouldn't lie to us.
"I will not lie to anybody here. I will not mislead you. I may not answer you. I may be incomplete in my answer. You may be frustrated sometimes that you wish I would say more, I could be guilty of that. But if I answer a question directly, I’m telling you the truth to the best of my knowledge.”
This sounds like one of those things you promise on your wedding day and then find impossible to achieve in actuality, but, hey, you go Joe!
