Will the Browns "Browns" it up?


Recommended Posts

So the Browns now have the 1st and 4th picks in the upcoming draft.  I feel like this would be more of a story if it were any other team sitting on that kind of draft-capital.

 

What will they do?  Will they get two blue-chip guys, trade down, or "Browns" it up and pick a couple of busts?

 

What if they take Barkley 1st and Nelson 4th?  Would this forum explode?

 

:thinking:

remember now the browns selected Dorsey as there GM earlier before seasons end. so there going to be just fine now might even be a team to watch out for next year

 

Exactly they have a new GM now, so I expect a different strategy from the old GM who seemed to like to collect draft picks but not use them to improve his horrible team.  

 

If they pick well (which is the big if) the Browns have a TON of resources to turn their team around.  Two top 5 picks, I think they have like 3 2nd round picks.  Over 100M in cap space.

That actually could happen. The Browns could go after Kirk Cousins or another QB in Free Agency and then go ahead and try to build around him. Of course for them to get Nelson @ 4 that would mean that we would pass on him.

I'd give it 2 years.  Even if they draft well they are going to have to play a lot of rookies early on.  Rookies always come with some growing pains, playing with that many rookies is going to come with a lot of growing pains that are going to cost them games.  

 

Plus they arn't exactly in the easiest division in the NFL. 

 

But say they draft well and pick their FA's well.  I could see them in the playoffs in 2 years.

The Browns have done some damage to the Colts and the AFC South.

 

1.) Traded the Colts Trent Richardson

2.) Bought Osweiler from Texans which gave Texans and freed up a lot of cap space for them

3.) Texans got Watson from a Browns pick.

 

Lets see what they do this year.

Those points are actually true. Osweiler has looked like Peyton Osweiler vs us and Houston getting Watson was huge.

    • E is a great edition to the site but he can be stubborn at times like you and I. He thinks he is always right but so do many. You both have my respect along with many others. Superman usually never has any bad posts. 
    • I only wish I could get a cut of the popcorn concessions!!      
    • All you're doing now Jared is projecting.    You're taking your views and putting them on Ballard and Irsay.    Ballard always keeps Irsay in the loop.   Nothing Ballard has done has caught Irsay off guard.   As long as Ballard is competitive and spending wisely,  Irsay will likely be fine with him.   Irsay knows Ballard inherited a mess.   Irsay knows Ballard was going to need time,  especially after he asked CB to keep Pagano and his staff around for another year.  Unless something shocking comes up unexpectedly,  Ballard should have Irsays complete faith and patience.      As I layed out in my last post,  Ballard has all these options.   As a fan one would think you'd be excited.   You've shared that you like Ballard and think he drafts well.   He's not too bad at free agency either.   But instead of being excited over possibilities you see all the downside.   You see all the ways this could go south.   You worry and worry and worry some more.   I've run out of magic words to try and have you see the bright side....   Good luck....  
    • I don't put Ballard on mountain but losing Luck was a bad blow. If you are a GM and lose a QB like that, that is bad.
