Browns mock draft round-up.

I’ve been following Brian Bassett, of the theJetsBlog.com for years.  I forget why I started but I do enjoy the Jet perspective and have a good deal of empathy for Jets fans.  Anyways… they did a Mock Roundup for the Jets today.  I thought it’d be fun to do the same for our Brownies while we’re waiting for JRich’s Bears...

Rams add Mike Evans. #KRM

Writers write.  Thus it is with Matt Borcas.  When he gets the call to contribute his word assembling talent for only the vague psychic benefit of enriching Kanick’s 100-200 odd daily readers, his response is, “Who have I got and when do you need it?”  Rams.  “Aw.  Damn.  Ok.” ************** It’s an honor to occupy the cranium of Rams GM...

Eric Ebron, Pick 12, New York Giants. #KRM

Always pleased when RodofDisaster gives us a post.  If you like your draft pick posts thick with analysis and light on Japanese manga references, this post is for you. ************* New York Giants 2013 Record: 7-9 Entering the 2013 campaign, the New York Giants had to have felt optimistic about their chances for another playoff run. Those dreams quickly faded...

#KRM: Titans at #11, Anthony Barr.

Intended to lead off this post by suggesting Tennessee take the Beast Titan, a clever reference to the not-yet-televised later mangas of Shingeki no Kyojin as well as a play on their nickname/mascot… but it just became too strained and I gave up.  Instead, I have dropped a humorous Cat-themed Attack on Titan opening sequence at the end of the post.  Enjoy.1 ************...

Lions add Clinton-Dix. #KRM

Pleased to welcome Bluedog93 to the draft board.  Here’s his splendid piece on the Lions. There’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding the Detroit Lions as they go into the 2014 NFL year.  Long one of the most hapless franchises in NFL history, with only one playoff victory in the past 50 years, two years ago they appeared ready to step...

Bills add Taylor Lewan. #KRM.

Clay, a.k.a. CheddarClay, steps to the podium with a quickie Bills’ pick. The Bills, coming off of (6-10) last year, have two potential first round needs:  O-line and WR. As the front office says they are committed to EJ Manuel, they must get some help for him.  They were 29th in sacks allowed last year, and their 2 leading WRs (Stevie...

Vikings select – QB Teddy Bridgewater. #KRM

Good work here from Trashy on the Vikes. VIKINGS OVERVIEW RICK SPIELMAN The presumed decision maker is Rick Spielman (and his front office( with significant input from Mike Zimmer, the new head coach with a background as a defensive coordinator for the Bengals.  Spielman was heavily involved with drafting and key in decision-making for Dolphins 2002 – 2005 and responsible...

#KRM: Buccaneers select Johnny Manziel.

Peter M is down Tampa way and I asked him to take the seventh pick so to add a local flavor to the Bucs’ pick. The seventh pick in the draft can feel like “no-man’s land.”  A  team earns that pick with a terrible season.  But, the seventh pick usually does not have that can’t miss/ turn around guy.  Especially when...

#KRM: Jake Matthews to Falcons.

Now stepping to the podium, a U of Oregon alumnus hailing from Canton and a Cheddar playoff contender in his second year, please welcome our surrogate Tom Dimitroff, OXR, with the pick for the Falcons. Thank God, I don’t have to pick one of the quarterbacks. At #6, I am instead tasked with predicting the choice of Thomas Dimitroff, who has...

KRM: Raiders take Khalil Mack.

Lives in Las Vegas, favorite sports book is the Nugget, OU alumnus:  Pete Franklin’s degenerate credentials are impeccable.  We asked him to get a Mark Davis haircut and give us a pick for the Raiders.  No word on the Davis cut, but the pick is in. Overview The Raiders are similar to the rebuilding teams that we’ve seen before in Cleveland.  I’m...
