Well friends we made it!!! Its here!!!
The NFL draft that is...the Super Bowl for us Browns fans. Every year we hype up certain prospects with the hope of them being the savior for this franchise that hasn't got it right since returning in 1999. So lets keep it simple. These are the my dream draft scenarios..."The Good, the meh, and the ugly".
1. Myles Garrett at number one and drafting Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Yes, I'm on the Trubisky hype train, and yes a small reason is because "he gets us". But real talk...Getting the best player in the draft and the best quarterback can't not be a good thing. If the Browns think Mitch is their guy and Hue Jackson believes in him then I hope they go get him. Whether they trade up to ensure getting him or whether they wait until the 12th pick. There is going to be a theme with "the good" and "the meh". Myles is the number one overall pick because he is hands down the best player in the draft.
2. Myles Garrett and one of the top Receivers (Mike Williams, John Ross, or Corey Davis). I'm not saying one of the receivers wouldn't fit the Browns but after taking multiple receivers last year, signing Kenny Britt this off-season, and kinda letting Terrelle Pryor walk...I don't know, it would seem weird. A "robbing Peter to pay Paul" type situation.
Its just that simple...MYLES GARRETT NO MATTER WHAT!!!
2. Trading one of the first round picks for Jimmy Garoppolo. I'm not on the Garoppolo bandwagon like some people. I just don't understand why:
B. Why the Browns would trade a 1st round pick for Garoppolo, who only started a handful of games and even in those games couldn't stay healthy.
C. Garoppolo will be a free agent next season and could be signed (just like the situation with Kirk Cousins and 49ers). Trading a first round pick for Garoppolo would be a situation in which the Browns are negotiating against themselves.
