Draft Day Thread: Browns trade for #3 pick

Postby Deadskins » Thu Apr 26, 2012 6:14 pm

The Browns just traded for the #3 spot from the Vikings. They gave up a 4th, 5th, and 7th to move up 1 spot. :shock:
Did Vinny take a job with the Browns?

Didn't they say it was stupid to move up 2 spots.... I guess going up 1 is OK

Browns got their Trent Richardson. I like the pick for them.

But did they really need to give up 3 later round picks to get him? I doubt it.

Richardson is a quality kid... killer RB, and great character...

We may never know, but we do know Cleveland got their guy without selling the house (The house is displayed below).

Nothing wrong with guaranteeing your guy. Shanny and Co. guaranteed that they would get a "franchise" QB in the draft. While there is no guarantee that the draft choice will pan out. At least you got your guy.

Disclaimer: If your name is Vinny Cerrato - you have no business in the business, so this strategy or any strategy for you will not work.


Brown's are still looking good for this year's draft.

The Pies trade their 2nd rounder this year to the Rams for our former #6 pick and take Morris Claiborne. :evil:

Dallas takes Claiborne with our former pick.

Smart move by Dallas because RGIII is coming to a Stadium near Dallas.

The Rams have been busy converting that #2 pick into a ton of picks...

Jacksonville trades up to get Gabbert last year and so far it hasn't looked like a smart move. This year they trade up to get Blackmon ... Receiver and QBs each have some of the highest first round miss rates. If I am a Jacksonville fan, I am not sure that I like this move.

Tannehill to the Dolphins was as sure a deal as Luck to the Colts and RGIII to the Skins.

Tannehill reunited to with Mike Sherman.

Does this say anything about Matt Flynn?
