FOUR THINGS I THINK . . . About the NFL Draft


FOUR THINGS I THINK . . . About the NFL Draft
1. Trade winds: The buzz Friday night was that the Browns will try to trade out of the No. 5 spot if Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry is not there. They also like Boston College defensive tackle B.J. Raji a lot, but might try to trade down with Jacksonville to No. 8 to pick him there before Green Bay picks at No. 9. If USC quarterback Mark Sanchez and/or Texas Tech receiver Michael Crabtree are still there at No. 5, it increases the likelihood of trading down. Reports say the Jets have talked to the Browns about trading up from their No. 17 spot to get Sanchez. The Broncos and Redskins also could try to make a move to get Sanchez.


2. Trade Team B: The Browns should trade Braylon Edwards, even if they can only get a No. 2, No. 5 and a young prospect such as Domenik Hixon or Mario Manningham from the Giants. If they can secure the Giant's first pick in the second round - the 45th overall - they'd have four picks in the top 50 and could transform the team with those players. At No. 45, they'd probably still be able to land a top-notch receiver or another immediate starter. Edwards needs a change of scenery and he's heading into the final year of his deal. The Browns might as well get something for him while they can.

3. What a catch: The Browns have spent plenty of time working out receivers - especially in the past week - and figure to land one of them in the first or second round. Besides Texas Tech's Crabtree, they've spent extra time with Missouri's Jeremy Maclin, Rutgers' Kenny Britt, North Carolina's Hakeem Nicks, Maryland's Darrius Heyward-Bey and Georgia's Mohamed Massaquoi. Then there's always Ohio State's polished Brian Robiskie and West Virginia quarterback-turned-receiver Pat White.

4. OH-IO: The Browns could do a lot worse in the first round than either defensive back Malcolm Jenkins or running back Beanie Wells - even at the No. 5 overall pick. Jenkins, the best defensive back in the draft, can play corner or safety, make an immediate impact on special teams and be the emotional leader this defense needs. Wells can give the Browns the perennial 1,000-yard rusher they need and could start immediately. I've talked to plenty of people who say folks make too much of the durability issue.
