    We got Roos in the 2nd, Stewart in the 4th. There are plenty of good OTs left in this draft - Tiny Richardson, Morgan Moses, Jack Mewhort, Cyrus Kouandjio. They may not all be as good as Lewan, but I'd take a serviceable guy at OT if it meant getting a defensive playmaker in the 1st, or anyone that will actually play.

    I am telling you, dude plays angry. That's what this team needs. I like it. Like I said, I would have liked Defense there too, but outside of Donald, who here as a pick that is as guaranteed value and need wise as lewan, that hadn't already been taken???!!!

    I'm not saying that "no one" wanted a LT. I was simply posting based on the fact that when JFF was still available, most thought the Titans would take him. Again, I'm glad they didn't. Going to the ESPN coverage and what not that might come along with JFF, what happens to all that coverage when he gets injured? He is exciting, don't get me wrong, but he is a playground style QB, that crap won't last long against professionals.

    You sound like like you already had the pleasure. Hence, "butthurt".

    I don't believe a single person has said they wanted us to take a RB at 11.

    Welcome to the forum. Put on your big boy pants cause there's a lot of negativity that floats around doesn't make people bad fans just passionate. I think it's going to be another long year.

    Might as well blame Webster for global warming and 9/11 while you're at it.... Seriously, do you guys think the Browns are idiots and gladly give away whatever we want from them??

    Unless you have proof that Webster turned an amazing deal, common sense dictates the Brown were offering less than face value (as well they should! That's why you negotiate) and wouldn't budge.

    I would have been pissed if we had taken anything less than the Browns 1st and 2nd round picks, and I doubt they offered that.

    It is if it's at a position that you don't need.

    It's funny, because you are correct even though you're trying to be sarcastic and think you are smart. There are typically just as many LT's taken in the 7th round as there are in the first. You should pay more attention to the draft, and not just be biased on the first ten picks (which is probably the only part of the draft you watch, based on your statements.)

    Maybe they aren't starting caliber rounds 3-7, but even in round 1, the premier tackles need coaching to transition their game.

    I really don't see how Houston can sell drafting Carr to the fan base. I mean, I know it seems silly but that would be like us drafting VY's kid brother.

    But yeah, I still don't think Carr or Garapolo are there when we pick. Oakland will probably go QB as well. So that's Houston, Oakland and Tampa who are all in front of us and needing a QB. Then there's always the possibility of other teams trading up. And unfortunately we don't have the ammo to move up.

    I think the best we can really hope for is Murray in the 4th. And that's a long shot.
