Not a fan of Blackmon at #4 any more. I think Richardson is the real deal and a much better prospect. I'm hoping the Browns take him there as I think he will be an AP type of player. He can be used the same way they used Hillis, so he should fit right in. As you said with RBs, there are impact ones later in the draft, I think the same can be said of WRs. Lots of good ones in the 2-4 rounds. The Browns could probably get Jeffery at 37 due to all of the issues surrounding him, much like the way they took Greg Little last year. Would love to see the Browns get RB Richardson at 4, OT Martin at 22 and WR Jeffery/Randle/Hill (whoever falls) at 37. The offense seriously needs an overhaul, and that would be a great start. They signed so many DE/Ts in free agency that I have to expect them to skip D-line help until later rounds.
Edit: Texans taking Randle at 26 is certainly an option. Some people want Hill/Wright, others Konz, or a LB, or a DT. Our pick is kind of all over the place, so it's tough to project. Randle seems to fit the Kubiak mold, and after posting the 4.42 time at his pro-day, I think he may just sneak into the 1st round after all. I certainly prefer him over Hill.
The Browns can't go wrong with their top 3 picks unless they take a QB with one of them.
Richardson is not in the same class as AP..that's just media hype. Richardson is similar to Marshawn Lynch. The fact that Blackmon & Miller are explosive makes them more ideal fits for what Cleveland wants to do offensively. Richardson would slow that offense down just a bit. Lamar Miller is a legit breakaway threat
