The Browns got what they wanted, the Kansas City Chiefs selected Tyson Jackson, and Aaron Curry was still on the board after the 3rd pick came and gone Curry was still on the board, but the Seahawks decided to take the Linebacker out of Wake Forest.
The Browns were finally on the Clock and months of suspense and the wish finally came true the Browns were able to make a trade with the New York Jets. The Jets selected Mark Sanchez and the Browns received DE Kenyon Coleman,QB Brett Ratliff, and Safety Abrham Elam, The Jets 17th pick, and the 57th pick.
So after an hour and half of waiting and the Browns back on the clock the Browns decided to make two trades to acquire late round draft picks. When the Browns finally decided to pick they could of landed Chris Wells or Rey Mauluaga. They didn’t the decided to go after Alex Mack a Center out of Cal.
The Browns next picks would be in the second round and there is no way Mauluaga could of fallen to them there. Well it happened the Browns had another opportunity to draft Mauluaga and they passed instead the Bengals decided to draft Mauluaga. I said in one of my earlier posts this week Mauluaga would be add an identity to the defense, like Ray Lewis does to the Ravens and Troy Polamalu does with the Steelers, now you can add Mauluaga to the Bengals.
So three out of the four teams in the AFC North have hard hitting defensive playmakers and the Browns have nobody on defense. I hope it works out better for Brian Robiskie, then it did for Terry Robiskie. As of 8:09 p.m on Saturday, I feel like I do when I am walking back to the Muni-lot after the Browns got manhandled like they did seven times last year.
For the first time with this new regime I am utterly disgusted in are draft picks and how this draft has gone so far. The pick with Mack doesn’t make this team better right now. I am sick of rebuilding and new, going into this draft we had many holes to fill. We could of walked away with both Wells and Maulauga but we didn’t.
I don’t understand and quite frankly don’t think we helped are chances for competing in 2009. Granted I understand Mankok have a plan, but what about the Season Ticket holders that have to pay every year for this product (If you can even call it that) they put on the field. Where is the Defensive draft picks early on?
Oh yeah we picked a Center and a Wide Receiver instead. Even though we still have two more picks in the Second Round and still have Braylon Edwards this team really dropped the Ball just like Braylon does. Sorry Mangini and Kokinis I have backed you so far and now I hope this works out because I don’t agree with any decision that was made today……
