We don't get too many kids from the West Coast. Michael Thomas and Marcus Baugh are the only two I can think of off the top of my head. Hope this opens up a bit of a pipeline. I've seen ttun get players from California for years and would really enjoy us pulling a bit more from that talent pool too
I would love to see a few more years of Lewis, Hubbard, and Bosa in that third down Rushmen package along with Holmes
Thanks for the update Birm!
Looks like The Sheriff is going to go out on top. I was really pulling for the Panthers and all of those Buckeyes on their roster but it wasn't meant to be. Still makes me sick to the stomach knowing the Broncos are going to get another one (Browns fan).
Roby just won that round
About time. Got hosed on not being a first ballot HOFer but his enshrinement is no less remarkable.
All of us Browns fans can agree, not us or any other AFC North team, we don't want to face him twice a year. With that being said he would be great value to the Steelers or Bengals later in the first round even though neither team is desperate for RBs. I like him going to the Giants, Bears, Lions, or Colts. He is definitely not getting past the Texans at pick 22.
Erick Smith brings the wood, check out his high school tape. I think the kid had an interception last year already. I'd also nominate Jerome Baker to have an impact. He saw a lot of time on special teams last season and is ready to make a bigger contribution this season.
I like the idea of McCall on punt return next season. That guy is too electric to keep on the bench. Him and maybe Dontre Wilson could make up the best punt and kickoff return team in the country
Look for the early enrollees to see more time than you would think. Also pencil in guys like Keandre Jones and Nick Connor to make big impacts on special teams.
Good luck to the kid in the future. Now lets go get the next guy!
Never a good sign
Thank you kind sir.
If Hamlin goes elsewhere do we really have a shot at Becker? Barely heard anything about him until a few weeks ago and with those guys from the Southm it usually takes a year or more to build the relationship that gets them in Columbus.
Is there a feed to Hamlin's presser?
Picking him would make the Ivy League front office the Browns have assembled look that much smarter.
His mom blabbed. He is staying with Miami.
Miami if I use my head, Ohio State if I use my heart (also if Haskins tweet last night was indicative of a reality rather than him thumping his chest)
Please be Hardman
There is that thing Tennessee is doing where they don't make any contact with the recruit until the beginning of spring camp. The player then walks on to the team and is given a scholarship that counts towards the following recruiting cycle. Strange but it happens apparently.
You know how the small guy in the group always has a chip on his shoulder, something to prove? Meet Coach Coombs
Nobody on 247 has him going to us. All CBs point to a Florida school.
