Cleveland Browns

Round 1, Pick #5 overall

GM Zappa

 

 

Details of the pick after the jump...

A return to respectable wideouts?

From GM Zappa:  This selection was a tough one to make. As GM, I had hoped to make a
trade to move down or possibly out of the first round for the right
offer. No suitors arrived, so I had to go with the best intel I had
available. With my top two prospects already off the board, I had to
take a look at recent Browns history. They have
trade rumors involving Braylon Edwards and a potentially long term prison sentence forthcoming for Dante Stallworth, the Cleveland Browns have selected Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech.

Crabtree was the only logical choice at this point, his value at #5 is
still considered a steal by most experts and he will no doubt make an immediate impact on this Browns team no matter what becomes of the two
current starters this offseason.

Commish's Thoughts:  Nothing wrong with Crabtree at 5, and the talent is certainly there for him to be a top 5 selection.  With a firm decision to convert to the 3-4 in Cleveland, the top end and NT were worth serious consideration, but it should be remembered that the Cleveland defense wasn't half bad last year, actually amnaging to keep cleveland in several games.  Their offense on the other hand looked light-years removed from its 2007 high-octane incarnation.  I like the choice to get frontoffice leverage on a couple of troublemaking WRs, but that is just the Commish's firm hand talking....
