Expect the Browns to rotate alot in the D-line. Don't you have Wimbley? He should be a good 3-4 OLB rushing the passer.
Good to hear about Coleman. The Browns need a run-stopping defensive end and a sure-tackler.
Wimbley is a slug. He had a great rookie season, but when teams figured out that he only had one move and began rolling protection toward him, he has been a total bust. I've almost completely given up on the guy.
After further reflection and some research into our picks, I've changed my opinion and I'm pretty happy with what the Browns have done. Mack, from what I've read, is the best center that has come out of school in several years. Mangini's first pick with the Jets was Nick Mangold, who turned out to be an absolute beast and an anchor on his line.
Mack has the skills coming out of school to be a perennial Pro Bowler.
Robiskie was a pick that I called a few days ago and he will fit in well as a No. 2 receiver. He should replace what we lost with Joe Jureviceous... Maybe more.
Massaquoi should be good in the slot and he has a lot of big play potential. Both of these receivers have excellent hands.
Veikune is sort of a project with a lot of upside. Today's pick of Maiava was a great value in the 4th round, imo. I was impressed with him every time I watched USC this past season. He isn't as flashy as the other guys, but he seemed consistently good.
Also, all of these guys are very smart and character guys. Alex Mack won the Draddy Trophy ("Academic Heisman") and Robiskie was a finalist for it. Massaquoi graduated in four years from Georgia with a psychology degree. Veikune was academic all-conference in the WAC.
I see what Mangini is trying to build here... and I like it. Obviously, the draft is an inexact science, but it is pretty clear that the new organization has a plan for how they want to build this team, something Savage and Crennel struggled to do.
The Browns passing game should be back. Fraley was the main reason that Quinn and Anderson ended up injured last year and the lack of receiving talent was really the major reason that Braylon struggled with drops. He was forced to take the role of possession receiver and run a lot of routes across the middle, which has never been his strong-suit.
Do not be afraid to draft BE in any and all fantasy leagues if he remains with the team. Massaquoi and Robiskie will really open up the field for him to do what he does best (like in 2007).
