Default OLB Prospects

So with Mario gone, we will more than likely draft a pass rushing specialist high. I'm not really up on my prospects, but I'd like to know what your opinions are. I read about Vontez Burfict and I think he's someone who may fill that gap. He seems to have some character issues, but I think guys like DeMeco and Cushing can keep him in line and under control.

I'd be looking at guys like Andre Branch, Shea McClellin, Ronnell Lewis, and Bruce Irvin in the 2nd round.

Whintey Mercilus would look good in a Texans uniform. He's a realistic candidate @ #26 if the Texans don't draft a receiver there.

Vinny Curry from Marshall. Watched him for two years and is real deal. Great senior Bowl and great stats. I rate him just above Perry as he is stronger. Perry would not send me screaming. Available top 8 2nd round but gone before #58. Trade down?

With our situation right now a trade down would make a ton of sense. With 2 second and 2 third round picks we could adress WR, OLB, and either 2 O-Line spots or one O-line and one DT with real quality players. So Id be ecstatic with a trade down (if no great player in a position of need magically falls to us).

Would you approve a #26 to Cleveland (Tannehill) for their 2nd & 3rd?

2nd:OLB Curry & WR McNutt
3rd: NT Josh Chapman & WR Ryan Broyles
4th: C/OG Phillip Blake
5th RT Josh Ogletree

Curry seems to be legit however, do we really need to look for OLB in the 2nd? We lost Mario in FA but, Reed and Barwin did pretty good job and they are our starters and Braman as our backup. We can find a decent back up guy at this position in later rounds and may need to focus other position instead like NT, OL (depends on FA situation). I personally don't mind us going 1WR 2NT 3WR. At WR position, we do have intriguing players like Lestar and Jeff with a year to study our system. However, don't know what we can expect from them so to me, WR position needs most attention at this point.

not really relevant but everything ive read lately says tannehill is set for a locker/ponder rise up the draft and maybe even higher. lets just say hes alot more likely to be picked with #4 than #26 by the browns

Wade desires a 3 player rotation @ OLB and Braham is a backup only that I do not want to see on field much. He might develop but should not yet be part of that rotation. After round two my ratings on OLB drops significantly. Same with WR, I don't want a back up or "intriguing" player. I need a starter so you & I agree on that. Problem is I'm concerned top 4 will be gone & one of those is Hill who I did not watch. I will not be surprised if Wade does not select a NT.

Totally disagree. I think after choosing McCoy, Cleveland wants to get it right on QB & will use #4 in a trade down or go LT. I'm seeing only Miami between them and Tannehill and Dolphins should realize better year if not two with who they have. Tennessee or Denver will get Manning and if it is Titans, I think Denver will not go Tannehill. Seattle will take the QB from GB.

He just screams OLB convert. I love watching him play, hell if we traded back for another second round pick and nabbed him early in the second, we could get him/mcnutt in round 2, maybe burfict in round 3, and then approach OG/NT in the 4th.

It appears the browns are gonig to stick with McCoy this yr and load up their team. If McCoy does well they've got their QB. If he doesn't they sell the farm to get Barkley or Bray in next yrs draft.
