As for getting shut down by OSU and Michigan, true, but the PSU O-line was very shorthanded and oh by the way, he did take a kickoff 100 yards against the Buckeyes. He will be a great pro for somebody if he stays healthy.

And if I'm Dorsey, with Gordon and Landry on the outside, I'm picking him #1. Yes I know what the stats say, but the kid is a major difference maker if you have a respectable O-line. His presence helps the passing game even more, he will get attention from defenses.

All of the QBs are too close to call at #1 IMO, and Tyrod is a nice bridge. So even if Buffalo jumps up to get one, there will be a couple decent ones left at #4. As long as it isn't Josh Allen. He can throw a football through a brick wall, if he doesn't completely miss the wall. Darnold or Mayfield at #4.
And Barkley's 35 yds on 14 carries against Rutgers.......is that excusable ? What about 56 on 20 at home against Indiana ? Sure, he averaged 4.7/ against Georgia State, but 47 yds, huh ?

https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb...1/gamelog/2017


There is no doubt he is a tremendous talent. There are more than 2 games where he seems to have disappeared, though.


You watch him run in college, and he has an amazing highlight reel. It also looks like he makes some "business decisions" on the runs that don't make it to SportsCenter. Is he going to fight for first downs in the NFL, or will he be OK if the punt team comes out ? He'll get a solid rookie contract at #1 or #7, but will the team that he signs it with have to wait for it's last year to get 100% 100% of the time ? I wonder.

Chubb imo is the best pick for the Browns if they arent in love with a particular qb. If they dont love any and think the sepration isnt really there between the avilable qbs I'd take Chubb. It opens up Garrett and could develop that unit into one of the strongest d lines in the game.
no way

You have stated before you don't want Barkley or Allen and now Chubb. Do you like Darnold or Mayfield the most? If you have stated before i apologize for not noticing.

I agree on not wanting Allen or Barkley with the 1st pick.

Personally i dont like any of them that much. Gun to my head i choose Mayfield, lower upside but I think his bottom is higher than the others.

If Fitzpatrick is available at 4 he is a solid pick as well IMO

And, if I can just vent for a second. I am sick to death of the stance taken by some that John Dorsey is the beneficiary of Sashi Brown's work. 1-31...that's a product of Sashi Brown's work. Intentional tanking is a product of Sashi Brown's work. Swinging and missing on too many draft picks to count is a product of Sashi Brown's work. Yes, he stockpiled draft picks and accumulated unprecedented cap space...but he had plenty of both at his disposal when he had the job and he botched it big time. It's what you do with your assets once you have them. In one 12-hour period, Dorsey gave an indication of what a professional front office can do. I am hopeful he can pull off a couple more coups and bring some top tier free agents to Cleveland (which, until perhaps last week, was the toughest sell in sports). If he can somehow get Solder or Johnson/Breeland (either one) to sign he should get the Executive of the Year award before the season even begins.
I'll give Sashi credit for: 1) Accumulating picks, and 2) Unplugging the fax machine to prevent the McCarron trade. Beyond that, the guy went waaayyyy overboard and unnecessarily turned the team into one of the worst in NFL history. With their awful years leading up to his tenure, the system gave the Browns the ability to build the old fashioned way, not unlike the Jags are doing now. Heck, the Steelers, as much as it pains me to say, do it every damn year from the bottom of the draft.

Thomas to the Browns.
Keenum to the Broncos.
Cousins to the Vikings.
Bridgewater to the Jets.
Bradford to the Cardinals.

Not much fun being AJ McCarron right now with the market shrinking.

I'd love to see Chubb at #4 - far more than Barkley. The notion of taking "whatever QB is left at 4" is nuts to me. My read of your post had me thinking you had suggested that, after picking Chubb with #1.


Purely as a passer, I like Rosen best. Concussions and shoulder surgery are a concern. I won't be getting a HIPPA release and exhaustive medical reports from and on Rosen or anyone else (Allen - also shoulder and multiple collarbone issues already), so I'll never be able to address those, but NFL GMs will. Hard for Joe Average Fan like me to make an informed decision given that limitation. Some talk about his attitude - but there is nothing negative from team mates or coaches.

There is a lot to like about Mayfield, but I agree that his top end probably isn't what the others could be. The college passing numbers were impressive. Totally committed and a student of the game. He'll either change his demeanor or paint a big bullseye on himself.

I think Darnold is the best choice. Minor throwing hitch on the load. Definite ball security issues this year, but with no line and little receiver help maybe guilty of just trying too hard to make things happen. Throws well, with touch and timing. A mesomorph (for 'saders ) and a former LB that converted late to QB, he's big and regarded as very tough and durable. 20-4 at USC. Definite leader and a personality that won't be perceived as either aloof or brash by teammates as some could regard the other two.

Allen is a project QB. Greatest personal college success came running as a QB, so running could easily be a "go for what you know" move, to cut and run too quickly when struggling as a passer. He WILL struggle at first. He's had shoulder surgery and a shattered collarbone in college because a high school break was not properly set. It carries a plate and a bunch of screws. That all added together could be a really bad combination - like the worst of Andrew Luck and Romo combined. I'd pass. I don't think he should go in the first round, myself, but I've not seen MRI/CTs, so......

The new front office has interviewed thousands of kids and selected hundreds over the years. Just like you've looked at acres of horseflesh in your avocation. Hits and misses - for you and for them. You remember every horse you've missed big on, and learned from that, right ? Dorsey, Highsmith, and McCloughan are just the same. THIS is a process I can trust.

I'm guessing it will be Darnold 1, Fitzpatrick 4 with Chubb and Barkley gone, but I wouldn't be against trading down some out of 4. Some think Randall is going to FS, negating the selection of Fitzpatrick, but I think that the fact both guys can play both CB and FS could be a real asset if they disguise coverages well.

I looked into this extensively during the season.

Lets add a 3rd back drafted highly in recent years... 2015... Gurley picked 10th by Rams. Rams and Jags were two of youngest teams in NFL history in years leading up to selecting running back in 1st round... Took their bumps to let young guys get PT/experience while they stocked up on assets. Took back when it was time to start going for it. Everyone loves Jags defense now... Part of the reason they talked so much trash this year in playoffs in because everyone bashed them when they were all rookies...
Cowboys were slightly further along since they had Dez and their defense had some vets (although not really that great) but they're an interesting comparison as well. Part of the reason Zeke came in and was immediately successful is because Cowboys had highest paid and best offensive line in league at the time. Highest paid oline now? Browns. Sashi loaded us up last year and the process has continued with more signings today. Additional note........ Cowboys drafted Dak in same year as Zeke (later round) the Rams drafted Goff years after Gurley and the Jags were in playoffs but still in a "QB controversy..."

Browns were younger past two years than Rams and Jags were a couple years ago... Wins will come as Browns age.

Tank-a-palooza is over. Bad drafts from Farmer, Lombardi, and Heckert made Sashi's tear-down plan salable in the first place. Their selections basically sucked - especially Farmer's. That can't be ignored. We survived. No way but up, now.


Only since they landed Ben. They'll visit the middle of the pack for a bit again if they don't hit on a QB. We took Braylon friggin' Edwards, wanna-be male model.

If they love a qb take him 1 no questions asked. My situation was more along the lines of if they see no difference in any of them and dont want to use the 1 pick on a qb, take Chubb over Barkley. Stupid to take Barkley #1 overall. If they choose a non qb for the #1 pick it needs to be Chubb

fyp Thinking about Joe ?

One franchise, one gamble, one enigma, and two for-sure bridges ? And one new Bill ?


Hue's begging Haslam to burn picks on AJ last year could have been the latest version of Farmer over-paying his buddy (former?) Duane Bowe. Thanks, Sashi ?


Guys in here and elsewhere were guessing Sunday that TT for 1 year has to mean Mayfield. I pointed out that the type of offense Tyrod succeeds in makes a good starting point for any young QB, not just a 6-footer that can throw on the move, and said TT didn't point to any pick in particular.

I've given it more thought. What is TT's greatest strength, aside from foot speed ? Ball security. What was Darnold's greatest failing last year ? Ball security. Maybe trading for Taylor points to Darnold ?

More likely that he represented the best value, and as a trade a sure thing. Hoping for a FA coup could leave a 1-31 team really overpaying or standing around empty-handed like AJ.

Well well well, the draft gets even more interesting. Cleveland to sign Carlos Hyde. Deal to be worth about $15 million over three years.

1,100 yards from the line of scrimmage the last two years. Just the type of back that complements Tyrod Taylor well. I think it also indicates the Browns will not take Barkley with the #1 pick and they feel Barkley won't be there when they pick fourth. I like the signing. It's sensible, but not earth-shattering.

Good call. Hopefully they can keep Hyde healthy. He's been a little bit of a gimp in the NFL and that's held him back. If healthy, he'd be a very good Cleveland winter grinder.

Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past

And that's with a pretty bad offense around him (until Jimmy came) and a below average offensive line outside Joe Staley. Cleveland making a lot of good moves this offseason.

He's a much better fit than Crowell. It's a smart signing.

I'm disappointed the top three CBs signed elsewhere, but as you said, the moves just up to this point have already significantly upgraded the Browns roster. If they can somehow lure Solder here, that would be an incredible run for Dorsey. Even as it is, it's still pretty damned good. I don't know about anyone else, but I'd love to see a wideout added .

Fantastic signing with Hyde. He's a perfect complement to Johnson and a significantly better runner than Crowell, when healthy. Also satisfies the Buckeye-Browns fans who were growing tired of Cleveland shunning Ohio State players

This likely rules out drafting Saquon at #1. Hopefully it's Darnold
