At Least We Arent the Browns - Panthers Draft Thoughts


I just read an article posted by Bill Voth via Twitter about the Mark Sanchez and Braylon Edwards trades involving the Browns and the Jets.  And it got me thinking about the draft...

Here is the article. You should read it first because it makes me feel good about the Panthers and Hurney's picks.  Browns 

After reading this I started to think about maybe it is not such a good idea to trade down. Who knows who we could end up with. As the article points out second round picks are like gold, but you can NOT swing and miss on them. We don't currently have any second round picks, but should we trade out of the second round who are we going to go after? Someone that is hyped by scouts? Someone who is hyped by the media? Or will we actually do our due diligence and find our diamond in the rough. To me, it makes sense to find that player that will help with what we need not just BPA.  I feel like the Pats and Steelers do this well even though I hate both teams. If we stay with the top pick I am OK with Fairley, Green, Bowers whoever grades out the best in the combine. Moose on WFNZ today was talking about how the bowl game and combine helped him become a second rounder. Something to watch for with Marvin Austin maybe in the East West Shrine Bowl. But I digress. 

The other thing that this article made me think about is hopefully John Fox will be our Eric Mangini. Apparently Mangini has made some horrible decisions and as I've said before I respect what John Fox has done for us, but much like Jake I was ready for him to go. Therefore, I don't wish such things on him, but if he could hook us up by trading picks/players back to us that would be great. IMO.
