Cleveland Browns Draft Picks

Postby animalkev » Sun Jan 28, 2018 7:08 am

I'm sitting here wondering why Cleveland would pass on Barkley with first pick and just take a QB with 4th overall pick? They can still get one of the top Qb's at 4.. I just cant believe they would pass on Barkley at 1?

Convince me why they should take a QB at 1? (I'm not a Browns fan BTW) All this talk about taking a QB at #1 is stupid!

Because the last RB taken at #1 was Ki-Jana Carter in 1995 and NFL teams do not draft based off of Fantasy value.
Please speak to clarion contrarion before considering the use of vetos..

I agree with you. I think they should take Barkely at 1.1 and wait for 1.4 for their QB. NY is 50/50 to take a QB and you know the Colts aren't going to be drafting one. But both could take Barkley so get your RB and QB of the future.
I decided to put my biggest project in my sig Ive ever done. Took the team over mid-season traded the crap on the team for picks.

Probably because if they don't take the QB at 1 and wait till 4, teams can trade up in front of them and take the QB they wanted. Wouldn't be surprised if pick 2 and 3 ended up being QBs and not necessarily by the teams who own the picks right now. I think they'd rather take the QB they want and take their chances with missing out on Barkley at 4. I also wouldn't be surprised at all if they passed on Barkley regardless with their first 2 picks. I have a feeling Barkley doesn't go top 7.

Because the losing formula the Browns have used for years is not taking the best QB in the draft. Taking Barkley guarantees they won't get the best one this year either. That would be stupid. Barkley is far more likely to be there at 1.04 than the top QB in the class if they take the RB at 1.01.
When the ignorant are out of arguments they fall back on name calling, vulgarity, and threats.
