I get why folks scratch their heads a bit on Leonard because of the small school thing. That's understandable to me and natural. I can't understand the hate that Smith was getting though. He was a highly decorated OL from big school, and had pretty good projections. I mean I know OL aren't sexy picks in general (especially interior), but to me it was a very safe pick in terms of value, and low risk. The only surprise is that he's succeeded at OT instead of OG.

 

If memory serves...    this was the thinking at 36/37....

 

There was a DE/OLB who was very popular with the crowd here looking for a pass rusher...

Landry?    A kid from Boston College.     And there was a CB.   Josh Jackson, from Iowa.   Many here thought those two seemed like natural fits given our needs.     Landry went to Tennessee,  and I think Jackson went do Green Bay.    Those were the two popular forecasts...

 

Nobody had heard of Turay -- Rutgers not a big name program.   And Lewis was projected by most as a 3rd or 4th rounder and we traded up a few spots to take him with pick 64.   So, the 4 players we picked were predicted by literally nobody.   And what little info we had wasn't as encouraging as the crowd here was hoping for.

 

It was a strange night....

I'm sure we will bring another OL in at some point.

I wasn't all that high on Josh Jackson and Landry. I think Jackson is now a S. Not sure how Landry is fairing, but I don't recall that I've heard much.

 

I was screaming for Justin Reid though with each of the two late 2nd round picks. I also would have taken Hubbard over Lewis with that last 2nd round pick. Honestly I was pretty happy with all those early picks except Lewis. I probably look closer at the prospects more than most though.

I'm guessing we'll grab a guy or two around cut down, and I think we'll draft one next year.

At least I loved it at the time. Many didn't though I remember. That is the best draft pick Ballard has ever made IMO so far. 

I did, I wanted Nelson at 3 even!

I remember when Leonard was called the worst pick of the draft fun times lmao. Then Bobby hall of famer Okereke was compared to Leonard and called the worst pick of the draft the next year lmaolmao

    • More time to get beer and food before the game starts!   WINNING !   Always look on the bright side of life.
    • I honestly can't see how Brady will thrive in Arians offense. His offense is a lot of 7 step drops and long forming routes and that's not Brady's game. His game is a lot of quick passes. Not sure how that will work.
    • Not a fan of this.  They shouldnt callit the bleck national anthem.  
    • I don't see masks being effective in such a competitive situation...  non contact, non respiratory space being impossible to control. I am coming closer to feeling that viable sports seasons are unlikely until there are therapeutics and ultimately a vaccine available.   Sucks a Lot!
    • 1. The Browns are "The Browns" 2. I don't care for Arians, but he's vastly superior to Kitchens.  3. TB has a top 10 OL, while the Browns have a bottom 10 4. I'll take a 42 year old TB who was led the #8 passing O last year even though he had a ragtag group of pass catchers. He's going to a team who had the #1 passing O last year, and some of the best pass catchers. 5. The only thing TB needs this year, is to improve their pass D. They drafted a pretty good S in R2. IMO, their pass rush should be better this year too. It'll be the second year in Bowles' system, so I expect the DBs to improve a decent amount (Bowles has a DB history) on that aspect alone.   Not saying they're going to win the SB or anything, but they're not going to be the 2019 Browns either.   I honestly hope both TB and NE have losing seasons, but I certainly wouldn't bet on it.
