Draft Day Thread: Browns trade for #3 pick

Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

That Fitz and Floyd just might save the career of Kolb provided he can keep Skelton on the bench.

Pats take Chandler Jones DE. That doesn't look good for Andre Carter.

Weeden to the Browns - another shocker. All the top QBs went right where most said that they would.

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


yeah ... but I'm really glad they didn't take Barron - he's going to be a better player :)
RG3 is now learning how to play QB in the NFL - Mike & Kyle did not help with the transition

I agree, Barron is excellent. That's who I thought they were going to take - so I'm glad they didn't.

It's not nice when you see a player you really rate end up with The Forces of Darkness in the draft, especially as we have to face them twice a season....

agree with both of you. When Goodell went to the podium for Dallas, I was listening for Barron's name - relieved when I didn't hear it.

Browns had 13 picks to start the draft. Their GM said all those rookies weren't going to make the team anyways, so that's how he justified that trade. I think Richardson is going to be a top running back in the league.

Does that mean they won't target any UDFA tomorrow night?

The Skins were a better team than the Browns last season and 12 rookies made the team, saying they won't make the team means they didn't have a plan to bring in that many players to help build their team. That's odd considering the off-season roster limits just jumped from 80 to 90.

NO WONDER the Browns and Holmgren were so uptight about the Redskins moving up to draft RG3

The Browns did have the amunition to 'beat' the Redskins

you've got to think these guys really dropped the ball on this and maybe did not get that Bruce & Mike were pushing for a deal and were willing to make it happen AND much earlier than the Browns thought :shock:

man oh man - they really screwed up :roll:

No idea, just something I heard. Maybe he was joking..?

The Dallas trade made me want to puke, I'm glad they got another good cb that will have a hard time seeing the field w the addition of Carr and their other vets. Can't believe they didn't take the best safety in the draft. But I'm glad.
Trent Richardson @ #3? Stupid imo they should have taken blackmon w that silly trade up
#21 forever in our hearts
...and yet ANOTHER record setting performance by "RG3 the third"!!!!
