Hopefully things change to a large degree after the combine because right now it sounds like it is two players deep and we pick 3rd. Is there no other premier talent outside of Kalil and Luck?
If we trade down will our pick hold enough value to make it worth while?
I expect RGIII interest will be even higher after the combine. he is built for the combine. Very athletic, strong arm and high IQ. Also presents himself well off the field.
Blackmon at #2 is also a real possibility with St. Louis, giving us a chance at Kalil which would be my preference over Claiborne. Better yet if we get them at #4 after a trade with Cleveland to block Washington.
Luck is the best QB, but RGIII is the only other one in the draft worth getting excited about and teams will go after him.
The Cleveland trade sounds pretty good to me. A chance to get 2 first round picks would at least start at making a dent in all of the needs the team has to fill. We could always take the 2nd 1st round pick and trade it to Indy for Peyton and then sign Reggie Wayne after they cut him and continue with our retread player program. ;)
Ok now that Childress has been taken on as OC at Cleveland how much will that impact on players drafted at #3 & #4. Will he be pushing the Browns to go after RGIII? Given that Spielman indicated that the Vikes would consider trades for the #3 pick then how much pressure does that put on Cleveland if they are very king on drafting Griffin? Especially if some other teams are in the market for a future franchise QB, this could work in our favour and maybe drive up the value of that #3 pick ?
They would trade the pick before drafting him. I would be surprised if they don't trade the pick considering someone will offer a decent amount to try jumping in front Cleveland and then force the Browns to give up a decent amount to get in front of themselves.
