I love the idea of trading down, but I had hoped we could con Dallas into doing it so we would still be high enough to draft Tunsil... Not sure who the good pick would be at 8. I love Bosa, but he needs to be in a 4-3. The Browns would likely ruin his career shifting him to OLB. Myles Jack's knees terrify me, and reports were results of his physical were not great. Buckner isn't as good as Armestead was last year and he was awful on the 49ers. The OT, Stanley, could be a good pick, but I've heard that he lacks the aggressiveness needed to be a top flight tackle...

I guess I have to hope Bosa slides and the Browns adjust their scheme enough to make it work. That's probably the best case scenario.

I want nothing to do with an oregon d-lineman. Buckner isn't as good as Armestead was for them last year and he was straight Charles Barkley turrible for the 49ers last season.

I thought weber and williams both looked good during their limited opportunities yesterday. Both showed some quickness and the ability to break tackles. I don't understand all the Debby downers around here who are all depressed because neither guy broke off a 90 yard run. This isn't madden. Both were running with make-shift o-lines, and I thought they played reasonably well. That being said, I still think Samuels winds up getting 10-15 carries a game out of the backfield during the season. He's too electric to only get sporadic touches out of the slot for us this year. I think the remainder of the touches go to weber. I didn't think Dunn had what it takes to play RB at OSU back when he was at Glenoak, and my opinion of him hasn't changed much. Weber just seems to have a different gear than Dunn.

Is Harris from the Sahara Desert? They just reported its 98 Degrees on the field and he's still in a hoodie and beanie. Mind... blown...
Comment 14 Apr 2016

This is almost word for word what I was going to post. 

What the Browns should do: Take Tunsil for LT. Trade Thomas (likely a pick in the 20's) and draft Decker for RT to secure the Oline. Get the best WR available between Dotson/Coleman/Fuller/Thomas with pick 32. DRAFT WATSON with #1 next year because he's hands down better than any of the prospects this year, and we're hands down the worst team in the league so we'll have the chance to do it.

What the Browns will do: Blow their load early on an average QB in Goff. Hold Thomas hostage on their shitty team until his body breaks down. Draft a DE to OLB project at the top of round 2. Continue the decade an a half of complete organizational ineptitude...

I also disliked the way the show ended. I loved the entire Negan monologue, but I hate the cut screen and not getting to see who died, mostly because it takes away our chance as fans to have an immediate emotional reaction to the death of a character we most likely really enjoyed. By waiting until the next season to find out the identity, it loses all value. We'll find out and be like, "Oh. Well that sucks." and then move right into the next episode. Every main character has received a worthy death so far on the show, and here we have the most important death yet, and it will really end up becoming more of an afterthought.

This being said, I think that the fatal blow was given to Abraham. They have really been developing his character emotionally this season and that usually screams doom for any character on the show. Let alone they saw fit to give him his final, "at'a boy" send-off to Eugene before the group was captured, typically signifying that the two will never speak again. 

I don't think I will be Glen, mainly because the writers have switched around every major death that has ever happened in the comics with the exception of Shane (Hershel gets his head cut off instead of Tyrese, Bob is eaten by the cannibals instead of Dale, etc) so why stop now?

And I think the Daryl angle is two easy. Why did they shoot him is they weren't planning on developing that next season? And I cant imagine they kill a main character without giving them a single line in their final episode. For a character as loved as Daryl, that would be an incredible letdown.

Everyone wondering what will happen if Akers says he wants in this this week, I believe the staff would take him without question. We all saw what happened last year. The odds that all three stay committed for 10 months would be beyond slim. You take them all and let them sort themselves out naturally.

Ummm no. I don't think lebron and Melo could coexist on the court together.

I thought about making a thread for this question, but we'll see how the discussion goes placing it in here.

Does anyone else think today might have a 2017 flavor to it? Haskins hinted at a possible monday triple boom, and most people on the initial thread seemed to immediately jump to some combination of Fuller, Hamlin, King, and/or Hardman Jr. However, while I feel Fuller is in, I think Hamlin and King are coin flips at best and Hardman Jr has always been a pipe dream. With that being said, could one or two of the hinted booms actually be for 2017? Coming off our first major junior recruiting weekend of the year I see this as a distinct possibility.

If a 2017'er were to pop tonight, my money is on Jaylen Kelly-Powell. Looking even further into the future at 2018, I would not be shocked at a Jaelen Gill boom either.

What do you think? Are we looking at three 2016 players today, or will future classes get to share in the boom-age? If you think 2017 could get a boost, who do you think is most likely to declare?
