What was the deal with Cash not getting drafted? Speed, coverage ability, run support, physicality. I'm stumped and I will have to research it better.
As for mocks, they are good tools but a man cannot live on mocks alone. We can read what comes out of combines and what WE think each team needs but unless we are a fly on a wall in each respective draft room, the general public (US) is clueless about what each team is thinking on draft day.
I for one was never sold on Trent Richardson's transition to the NFL, let alone if he was a fit in Cleveland. Hated the trade and pick (my son-in-law and best friend that I was going to throw the TV out the window when Cleveland made that trade). The NFL is bigger, faster, and more physical and IMO I never thought his running style transitioned very well to the NFL.
My opinion, I feel Perry will be a more durable player in the NFL than Schobert. I think Perry would be better suited at ILB in a 3-4 scheme. It will cover up his poor coverage skills. Perry is still an animal against the run. Last two seasons of 100+ tackles. Maybe it's the homer in me but I doubt it.
I can appreciate the toughness the kid out of TCU shows but can he cover. In the NFL, you need guys that can do both. I have a wait and see with this kid.
We are in agreement with the kid out of ULM.
Agreed the Browns need players that can stop the run and I think they may have improved as well as drafting a couple of guys that can rush the passer. They drafted guys that can catch (very pleased with each pick except the guy from Princeton, If they were so enamored with him, he would been there later). Drafted some solid offensive line help including the Matthews kid out of A&M as an UFA at Center.
I stand by the C grade because of the unknown with some of the picks. I will keep this in the back of my mind and revisit at the end of the season. Three guys to watch though Shon Coleman, Higgins and Wright. May end up being steals of the draft for the Browns.
