    Browns sign drew stanton

    My thoughts exactly. I wonder if they try to hold off a bit before releasing them, just to keep their draft plans muddied.

    I am pretty sure it was darcdawg... I didn’t post often, hadn’t found my voice really, but I enjoyed the differing opinions and the banter that came with it. Lots of good guys were on there.

    Lol its good to see the same dynamic that I loved on the old forums are also here. I'm all for debate on who fits best where and why. I do think that, from a value aspect, the QBs could be seen as similar, but I also think that there is enough of a difference for offensive schemes to matter. (Most of the time). Now that I've said that, I almost feel that the Browns are immune to that line of thinking this time around, simply because I feel (hope) that Hue is a dead coach walking. Personally, I feel that his 1-31 record and his bad coaching/ time management issues were enough to warrant his termination. (I also feel that it helps when an organization begins completely from scratch if they are acquiring so many new pieces). So, with that said, the team may be actually be in a situation doesn't matter this year, because there is a strong chance that there will be a new head coach in '19 and this year, Tyrod is the bridge QB and Cleveland may be (hopefully) sitting their rookie QB all year, in the same vein as Mahomes in KC. So then, this begs the question "why would you take a QB at 1.01 if he's going to just sit all year?" Two reasons: 1. The way the draft appears to be playing out, getting the best QB for the team means taking him at the first spot; not settling on who is left. 2, The current FO plans to never be this high again, (at least while they are in the FO) so they want to lock up their guy now. That my logic on the matter. But on my mock drafts, I actually have Saquon going one of three places: NYG, IND, or TB. In most situations, I see it being QB at 1 and Chubb at 4. Just my two cents.

    Much appreciated. I was just glad to find a chat for the Browns. I used to frequent the team’s site but that’s been years, and it appears to be gone. Figured it was the perfect time of year to jump in head first and talk the draft. Lol

    Some very good conversation on here regarding the strategy of the first four picks. A little surprised that Allen is still in the conversation but I admit that I am a bit negatively bias towards him based on the other QB options. My thoughts on those first four picks are based around one truth that I think we can all agree on at this point: A QB is going to the NYJ at 1.03. With them trading up the three spots, they were attempting to align with a QB and not hoping Barkley or Chubb (who may have fell). So the draft will unfold one of three ways: 1. The Non-QB at 1.01 narrative: The Browns go with Chubb or Barkley at 1.01 and then either trade out of 1.04 (if they do not intend to take a QB), land the other player (if both NY teams go QB) or take the remaining QB from the big 3 (Darnold, Rosen, Mayfield). I feel like this is the least likely scenario because they declined trading down with NYJ from the 1.01 and have also heard from BUF for the 1.01. The latter plot may unfold on draft night, but as it has not happened yet, I am assuming the Browns said no. It could have been a lack of value on the part of NYJ, but I feel that this move means that they are digging in on a QB, personally. 2. NYG goes Non-QB at 1.02: So, if the Browns go QB at 1.01, the NYG then take Barkley or Chubb at 1.02. This then allows the Jets to take home the 2nd QB and then one of two things happens for CLE: either they take whichever of Chubb or Barkley that wasn't taken by NYG, or the phones open up and they are racing the clock to move down with DEN, MIA, or BUF. In this scenario, I feel that its also unlikely that NYG passes on QB because they too turned down the Jets to move down to 6. So I'm assuming that they too want to lock up a QB and will grab a 2nd tier RB on day two. 3. QBs go 1-2-3: If the Browns, Giants, and Jets all take a QB, the draft finally opens up. In this case, one of three situations happen. Either the Browns take Chubb, take Barkley, or they attempt to trade down one spot with DEN (if DEN is trying to get a QB) and then will take Chubb or Barkley at 1.05 This type of situation seems to be the most probable based on my above explanations. I'm not saying that its definitely going to happen this way, but I feel its the most likely. I do think that we will see QBs fly off the board and, if any of the teams that are willing to trade up want Allen, DEN behind CLE will offer a narrative that makes moving up seem paramount. I guess the point is that there are a lot of variables involved in trying to crack the code for the top four this year. Hell, CLE's first five picks all have a shot at starting, and so this draft is so crucial. I will leave you with another version of the draft that I read today and that I found incredibly interesting, although I don't think it will happen. Twitter is an interesting place for draft porn lol. Imagine the Browns going Chubb or Barkley at 1.01 and then getting the other one at 1.04. Then trading up into the mid 20's and taking Lamar Jackson to grow behind Tyrod. In that scenario, the Browns moved their 33rd and 64th picks, along with their 2019 3rd rounder so that they could put a 5th year option on Jackson. Then at 35 overall, they went with the best OT on the board. What a crazy concept, but it is rather sound, value wise. So many options are out there and I cannot wait to see how Dorsey uses it to build.
