Thanks for the welcome, Iceberg.
I hear ya about Clausen and ANOTHER high draft pick QB from Notre Dame. Granted he had a great pro day this week, but call me crazy, I think that the Browns are leaning towards Colt McCoy in Round 2. I think the Browns would have to have been blown away to consider selecting him. Especially with the defensive situation that exists. Kind of like you folks after the recent 1-15 season. Granted bringing in Sheldon Brown helps, but he's 31, not what he once was, and certainly not the long term answer. After Shaun Rogers broke his leg in week 10, our run defense improved by inserting second year NT Atyha Rubin out of Iowa State. Rogers is certainly a disruptive force, but has been noted to play a bit undisciplined, and overrun his tackling lanes. And now you have his gun situation............. What a mental midget. To summarize our DL, the only players under the age of 30 on that unit are Athya Rubin and DE Brian Shafeuring. That area of the team needs to be a high priority.
If we don't get Berry at 7, I'd like Earl Thomas.
QB's that seem to be under consideration
Clausen (I think that's an old fashioned smokescreen)
Tony Pike - Cincinnati
Dan LaFevour - Central Michigan
John Skelton - Fordham
We all will know for sure in two weeks.
Hey man, welcome!
For me, I would be happy if you guys take Earl Thomas. That would mean Berry would have a better chance of dropping to us =)
As for our draft Targets in round 1. I don't think any of us know for sure. A good educated guess is all we can give you. Here are mine:
Derrick Morgan (If he's there)
I also think CJ Spiller is a possibility. And if Berry is available I think you have to take him.
Though, I would not be surprised to see us trade back and pick up more picks. Especially considering Earl Thomas and Dez Bryant might be available 8 or so spots back.
