    The good news..... Draft pick now might be as low as 11 right now or as high as 16.

    And we need all the high draft picks we can get - that's for sure. With Payne's latest injury and all the problems we have on O-line, what's the
    top priority, O-line or D-line ?

    O-Line is a more pressing need but we'll probably pass on a 1st round OL selection...Chances are we either take Thomas Davis, SS, Georgia or Marcus Spears, DE, LSU...

    Not really good news since this is such a thin draft. We will end up paying more for same talent.

    Better start looking for an NFL QB instead of a cutesy hair boy...

    I'd rather look for an O-lineman in free agency. Maybe we could land someone big?

    Guess a higher draft pick is one way to see the positive in this. Not sure how many people did get to see the Browns play before this, but IMO the are a BAD team, not just average, but BAD.

    Hopefully things improve quite a bit next year, I'm not sure continually getting younger with high draft picks will do us much good. I also think the clock is starting to tick on some of out Vets, would mind seeing a pick or two traded for a Vet we could use.

    Anyway, best to you all in the New Year.

    If any of these win... It improves us....

    Rams
    Chiefs
    Panthers - Lost
    Bengals - Won
    Saints - Won

    So since the Panthers lost the highest draft pick we can get will be 13th now? Is that correct, or did the Panther loss put us at the 12th?

    Thanks for the info Dime

    That cutesy boy has gotten his *** kicked for three yrs and had gotten back up every time, gotten better every year and has led his team to wins every year. Not sure why I even wasted my time replying to your comments. Oh well.
