I understand the pick. Browns are building a great defense right now and that atleast gives them an identity. History has shown that really great defenses alone can push teams into the playoffs. But that offense is really woeful right now.. That running game looks terrible as of now(I don't like Richardson at this pick just sayin) and they got rid of Hillis. Where will the offensive production come from? Hardesty looked bad last year, that offensive line struggled, McCoy struggled, WR core is pretty bad/young.
Great defenses can carry a bad offenses but a good defense can't carry a bad offense. But Browns are building a solid future here.
The thinking behind it, for me anyways, is the gap between a corner that they are going to end up with later as opposed to a WR later on.
Richardson should not even be discussed at No. 4. The talks should be between Claiborne and Blackmon. As much as I like Blackmon, this is a very deep draft for receivers and a guy that we can get at 22 won't be too far behind him in terms of being a potentially game-changing prospect.
Claiborne, on the other hand, is alone at the top of the CB heap this year by a very wide margin.
Make no mistake... As bad as our offense was last year, we had Sheldon Brown as our No. 2 starting cornerback. That was his last season wherein he was capable of playing a role like that. Corner is a huge need for this team and we need a guy that can step in and take that baton from Brown right away.
Keeping Brown there or moving someone over is going to allow teams to completely stay away from Haden and go at whoever is lined up on the other side. With Claiborne, teams will have to pick their poison.
There are a lot of game-changing WRs and RBs in this draft and I will grab several later on. That is the great thing about having so many picks.
As for Tannehill, if true, someone just shoot me in the face.
I personally think this Tannehill hype is out-of-control. But, that's just me. I don't get it.
QB's always get selected higher but it's better to reach on a QB than a positional player. I don't think the Dolphins have invested highly in a QB since Marino retired.. They wasted a bunch of 2nd rounders on failed QB's(Henne, Beck, White, trading for Culpepper, etc) They have some vets on that roster and Tannehil can sit the year adjusting to the game. I also think he's a good prospect, being converted from a WR he must be fast/agile.
I mean QB's like Ponder and Locker were selected high and they look like good picks for the time being.

Sorry. Damn my work schedule was different for the day.
Is there a way I can change my pick??
It'd be like if the clock ran out on us and the teams behind us jumped and made the selection. I know for a fact I wouldn't jump on that Tannehill bandwagon.
Too many selections were made.. Sorry dude, I thought you just forgot about to the thread because I was going to send you another PM and saw your last visit on 6pm today..
I like both picks for Seattle and Arizona. Arizona addressed a need and I like Seattle getting Luke Kuechly who is a beast, MLB's are such a valuable position. That defense is going to be really good for years to come
