Joe Thomas, OT -- Wisconsin
The Browns had a few directions they could go with this pick, from quarterback Brady Quinn to runningback Adrian Peterson. In the end, DBN went with the stud left tackle. Offensive Lineman are tough to predict early in the draft, with there being as many Robert Gallery and Tony Madarich types as there have been Orlando Pace picks. The Browns need to finally show the AFC North they are going to have an identity, and with the signing of Eric Steinbach, and the selection of Joe Thomas, the Browns are telling everyone they'll play smash-mouth up front.
The focus shifts back to the Detroit Lions who are back on the clock at #4.
