The Browns won the coin toss between themselves and Tampa for the tiebreaker.

Does having the Browns pick third instead of fourth change their pick now? Are they more prone or less prone to select AD since they'll be picking one slot higher?

i don't think it would've made much of a difference either way. the bucs get to save more money though, so more power to them.

you know what's weird is that in EVERY single mock draft, the browns chose three and tampa chose four. I don't understand why everyone put the browns at 3, myself included. i guess because they lost to tampa? but they still had to wait on the coint flip.

just thought it was kinda funny...luckily it has stayed the same or else we'd have to switch the two....not really a big deal but all the mocks would be wrong.

i think because the official order looked like "3/4: Cleveland/Tampa Bay" and people just made it so cleveland picked first. to make it simple.

i guess thats a good thing for us. at 3 there's more people to pick that aren't named Peterson.

Precisely, and its less likely that the Bucs would be interested in taking AD (since they have the Caddy who was a top 5 pick just a couple years ago), vs. the Browns.
Nevertheless, AD lasting to #8 is becoming more of a long-shot with each
passing week with or without the Browns being interested IMO.

the Browns winning rights to that 3rd pick now have more options -

translation this only helps the Texans cause making this scenero less of a long-shot . :shades:

His point was the fact that AD's stock seems to be rising slightly every week. Each week we realize that we are less likely to get AP.

I don't think it makes a difference at all personally. AP is their best pick regardless.
