    If we want that shot he'll have to fall to the Bucs, I agree.

    But we will not trade up. Bank on it
    If the Moss to Jags rumor turns out to be true, then CJ is gone with the number 1 pick anyway.

    cogitans, we traded up in last year's draft (2 3rds for a 2nd).
    We also reportedly made a push to trade up in the first round too to grab another QB, but the asking price was too high.

    I don't think Childress has any problems with trading up, he just doesn't want to get screwed in the process.

    That may be true. But last year is different from this year. Last year we were a 9-7 team, this year a 6-10 team. Also it's very different to trade up in the bottom of the 2nd round than in the top of the 1st.

    I just don't see it happen this year.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Fair enough.
    I honestly don't think it will happen this year either.
    If for no other reason than the fact that the only player worth trading up for (CJ) will be gone with the first pick IMHO.

    I actually tend to like trading down anyway.
    I think that two pretty good players are better than one super star anyway, although even I have to admit the Vikes were more fun to watch with a particular superstar on our roster.

    Re: Browns win toss, will pick third

    i think that the browns are in a position to trade out because of all the needs they have, as for moss going to the jags if it were true i still believe that the raiders would take russle based on the recent release of brooks i dont see them taking anyone but russle

    Thanks josdin00

    The Moss to Jags trade would bring Leftwich into Oakland.
    They would have a veteran starting QB to replace Brooks.

    There was good news for the Browns Friday morning as they won the coin toss with Tampa Bay and will pick third overall in April's NFL Draft.

    The teams gathered at 7:45 a.m. to toss the coin. Tampa Bay's representative called heads, and the coin came up tails.
    They will probably fire him over that toss.... ;D
    LOL.
    Maybe not, since it was the GM. ;D

    Browns general manager Phil Savage and Tampa Bay GM Bruce Allen represented their clubs at the coin toss. Allen called heads and the coin landed tails, giving the Browns the No. 3 overall pick for the fifth time in club history.
    Don't they know "tails never fails"?

    Re: Browns win toss, will pick third

    Get this pick!!!

    We need to be ahead of Tampa.

    Oakland looks like they'll be taking a QB, and the Lions would be insane to take another WR.

    Cleveland has a ton of needs, and could fill most of them at 7. LeCharles Bentley's career might be over, so they need an offensive line, they're defensive backfield could use some help, maybe a big mouth... you know who I'm talking about.

    Let's pull the trigger on this.
