The mystery is soon to unfold
Finally the long awaited NFL Draft is about to unfold in what will be a fun and exciting weekend for Browns' fans. The first round will read like a mystery novel. What team will move up? What team will move down? What player selection will cause the dominos to fall? What players will rise? What players will fall? Will ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper be able to talk by the end? If not, will you care? Will you win a prize in Bernie's Insiders second annual free Mock Draft Contest? Will the Browns take whom you think they should? Will you be able to watch the Draft in its entirety without napping or passing out from too much celebration of the Browns' picks?
Most Browns' fans have spent endless hours surfing the web reading player profiles and have formed an opinion of how the 2005 NFL Draft will play out. Some say this is time wasted because the only opinion that counts is Phil Savage's and his staff. They say the time could be spent in a more constructive way. They say that you should get a life.
Well here is what I have to say to them: "Kiss my behind and here is my opinion."
The Browns will trade picks #3 and #34 to Washington for picks #9 and #25. They will then trade pick #25 to New England for picks #32 and #100.
Here is your Cleveland Browns' Rookie Class:
Pick #9 Shawne Merriman, OLB, Maryland
Pick #32 Marlin Jackson, CB, Michigan
Pick #67 C. J. Mosley, NT, Missouri
Pick #100 Claude Terrell, OT, New Mexico
Pick #103 Craig Bragg, WR, UCLA
Pick #139 Marcus Lawrence, ILB, South Carolina
Pick #176 Derek Wake, OLB, Penn State
Pick #217 Jonathan Colon, OT, Florida
