Team draft grades? Sure why not.

Before diving into the Browns’ draft I was looking through what the other teams did and jotted some thoughts down.  (After reading DBN’s superb breakdown on the Browns’ draft I hardly need to write one.  Chris nails just about every point I will make.) In no particular order, here they are. AFCE Jets.  Yuck.  Pryor over Clinton-Dix?  No I don’t...

What we’re hoping for in day two.

Let’s just go through some name we’ll be hearing tonight and I’ll offer my two cents.  I had Deone Bucannon in my wish list post, but he’s gone.  Who else looks good?  Who might be a train wreck?  Here’s some thumbnails of guys I do and don’t like based mainly on my the info I’ve soaked up in the last...

Gilbert and Manziel.

Pretty terrific debut draft night for Ray Farmer last night.  Let’s review because I really want to dig into where we might go tonight.1 Justin Gilbert + Bills’ first rd/2015 + Bills’ fourth rd/2015 for Sammy Watkins + Browns’ fifth rd (#145). Mind-blowing trade.  Not just here but the truest measure of a trade is what our rivals this.  They...

Draft loose ends.

I’m hot-taked out.  Here’s some things I think will happen tonight. Browns take Evans. That diagram I did Monday failed to take into account that Evans’ chest is at least two inches broader so his wingspan is at least four inches wider than Watkins’.  I know some think I’m simplistic in my analysis, but in this case I think anyone...

Vitruvian Evans.

  No Da Vinci here, but work with me on this. I thought it might be useful to see visually how Mike Evans’ size and reach and vertical reflect in his catching radius when compared to a more conventionally sized wideout.  Think Red Zone. If Andy Dalton can be have the second highest RZ/TD convert rate, imagine what Brian ‘Fade...

2014 Browns draft wish list.

It’s crunch time and I’m ready to get the wish list published for our friends in Berea and with plenty of time for them to adjust their boards as needed. I’ve settled in on my picks. The problem is that they are subject to change pending the release of the remaining McGinn Draft Reports.  If you’re not familiar, Bob McGinn (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) has...

At 35, Browns select … #KRM

Bodie wraps up the most comprehensive preview and analysis of the Browns’ pick at 35 today that you will find anywhere, here; now.  Part one went up yesterday, the pick is now in, with pick 35 in the 2014 KRM draft, the Browns select. Browns KRM to this point Zarathustra and ChuckKoz have delivered the Browns Jadeveon Clowney (OLB, SoCar...

MGBode’s Browns pick at 35, prologue. #KRM

Pulling in with the Browns’ pick at #35 is MGBode.  And what we have here is special bonus Browns talk + this years draft + plus history lessons.  I hope it’s crappy weather where you are so you can feel right settling in to devour part one of Browns #35 which I might be entitled:  The Six Stooges or Fifteen Years...

Washington takes Tuitt. #KRM

I’m going to take my second at bat here with the Skins.  What I’m not going to do is project their pick because they’re a tough organization to figure.  So this is more how I would approach it, let’s dig in.   Armed with advantages such as longevity (been in DC since the 30s), huge fan base (bet you can...

Texans add Troy Niklas. #KRM

Matt Borcas is back giving us the Texans’ pick during final week no less so this is a pretty major commitment honoring and also:  pretty compelling logic behind this pick. The NFL’s modern tight end craze began in earnest on April 23, 2010, when the Patriots drafted Rob Gronkowski in the second round and added Aaron Hernandez a day later...
