Will good to have a smart hard working and sccurate qb that knows the system already in the fold if/when franchise qb is selected.
It is important to remember that Kiper and co simply don't have the access to player workouts, interviews, or a knowledge of team needs like the teams do. Every year there are "shocking" picks whether they be a guy Kiper think is too early or too late. Because Kiper and co don't have the the access that the teams have, I tend to trust the teams. For instance, I didn't expect the Browns to take Ogbah with #32 but have read they thought he was a top pass rusher.
In today's game you have to be able to throw, protect the passer, and get after the passer. The Browns bolstered their receiver corps, and made some great O-Line picks. I think the kid from Auburn is going to be a stud. I think the Browns drafted at least 3 starters by mid season at RT, WR, and LB, and many situational defenders (Scooby was worth the pick if for nothing but goal line situations and rushing the passer). Lets not forget that they picked up a talented but unproven cb from Miami for a 7th rounder. With the Browns' draft strategy they have good odds that there will be surprising starters/studs.
I too am skeptical of the QB but, I am going to trust Jackson here. He wants a prospect he thinks he can get something out of and who am I to doubt that. It was minimal cost. As has been mentioned. This team will have a bevy of high picks next year to add impact players.
Truth is that we won't know if this was a successful draft for years. However, the Browns strategy is encouragingly obvious: draft hard workers with big upsides, have faith they can be taught. I would've loved the team to grab a Buckeye or two, but it just didn't line up.
Bass, I think the Browns might agree with your qb assessment. I wouldn't be surprised if they are high on Cook or maybe even Hack. Seems like Hugh Jackson's comments hint that the Browns don't have the same view of the best qbs in this draft that everyone else has.
Das Boot looking good! He's had some time to develop would be great to have a consistent kicking threat this year.
'Shoe filling up nicely
Thanks for starting this thread! I need a dose of Buckeye football!
Funny, Washington was a DE when he first came here, as was Sprinkle.
Two years ago Dunn was the running back that Clarrett thought would win the starting job, not Elliot. Dunn is no slouch. Dunn hits the hole hard, I bet we see him shine this year.
People getting all sanctimonious haha

Yeah, ratting out a friend's private convo on social media is pretty bad. I wouldn't be sharing secrets with Russell anytime soon.
What's the point in being a famous professional athlete if you can't pick up women at clubs while engaged to a famous singer?
Im only half joking is there something between sarcasm font and standard?
I am surprised Jones hasn't been arrested for the multiple men he killed in this snuff film.
I encourage tweeting about it. Use #HonorMachoMan
I think the Arena District would be a great location for it.
I am not a wrestling fan. However, I always enjoyed Macho Man. He was one of those larger than life types. A Macho Man statue could be such a fun dynamic action-packed feature. It would be great for the city of Columbus and I think it could be financed through private donors.

Wow! that highlight video.
Cubit must've done something. This smells like a for-cause sacking.
That is a possibility with Price, a few years back he was battling Boren for the starting center spot.
Warren Ball is a really good runner that had limited touches because their are so many horses in the running back stable. He'll turn heads at Akron.
Yes, there are always things we just don't know about like: Dodson, and Trey Johnson
We do? Please make me feel better because DT seems like the weakness of this team.
Well, hopefully that juco with a Bama offer comes through. DT has been such a headscratcher.
I agree with you. I get Powell leaving in a way (he has his degree and has been a starter for 2 years). Marshall surprises me most. He would've been one of the primary weapons next year and gained a ton of attention.
I've been watching football long enough to see crazier things happen. If the Irish would've somehow pulled out a W it would've been on ESPN forever.
The Browns could use a pass rusher. Kruger's production has fallen off of a cliff. Bosa would probably be a good pass rushing OLB in a 3-4.
Browns could also use a RT. Decker is he's available in the early second would vastly improve the o-line.
