Browns, Delhomme, Draft Picks, Stuff

March 16, 2010

Well the Browns did a lot of stuff. I guess it is time to discuss it.

Quarterback: Well, the Browns got rid of Brady Quinn. My opinion of the handling of Quinn is well documented here. What is less documented but still clear is my belief that Delhomme is done. Well, now the 2010 QB depth chart is Jake Delhomme, Seneca Wallace, and Drafted Quarterback X. (Betting Ratliff is gone, not really going out on a limb here.)

Well it happened. I also continue to not be the team general manager, or coach, or assistant coach, or towel gather-er. So, I guess I can't do a damn thing about it. Just look forward.

So here is what I think, if the Browns are lucky Delhomme will be a "C" quarterback this year. He could be a D-minus though. If he is, Seneca Wallace comes in. Wallace is a nice, solid B as a backup. He is probably a C-minus tops as a starter. This isn't good.

So what about drafting a QB? Well, it has to happen. Sam Bradford would be nice. He is probably the best quarterback in this draft. He will probably not be available to the Browns. That being said, may as well take the best DB available at 7 (Eric Berry!, or Joe Haden). Whatever DB spot the Browns don't take in the first round they should address in round two. Hopefully, the Browns can get Berry because the cornerback crop is deeper in my opinion. Also I think Berry is going to be a big time Pro Bowler. So when do the Browns take a QB? I think that leads us to the Wimbley trade...

Kamerion Wimbley: This trade wasn't shocking, because you can see the point. It was surprising. I personally would not have given up Wimbley for a third rounder. However, OLB is probably where the Browns had the most depth. Matt Roth, Jason Trusnik, David Bowens, Scott Fujita (if necessary), and David Veikune (if he is allowed to play) can all log time at OLB. Roth definitely played like a very good starter late last year. Trusnik seems to be at least a passable starter, if not better. OLB isn't a weak spot. Wimbley, while good, never lived up to his status as a first rounder. That doesn't make him expendable alone. What does is the minor drop off if he gets traded.

Now with 3! third rounders, I think the Browns take a quarterback in the third round. Personally, I am high on Tony Pike who could be had in third round perhaps. I also like Dan LeFevour in the third round.

Would I rather have Delhomme and rookie QB X or Quinn and Wimbley? Well, I say Quinn and Wimbley. That doesn't matter though. I can't do a thing about it either way.

Of course, there is more to talk about soon. This is just my quick take for tonight. Check back if you want to read more of my thoughts.

  1. Holmgren is certainly shaking things up. It's not out of the question that Delhomme can rejuvenate his career in Cleveland, but I thought sticking with Quinn would have been a better option. Hopefully, Delhomme gets the job done and Holmgren looks like a genius. Losing Wembley does not really bug me because I think the D is good enough to overcome it, and the Browns could certainly get an impact player in Round 3.

  2. Well,i think you and alot of other people are totally wrong about delhomme,yes he had his worst year last year but he was still better in his worse year then what we had in both da and quinn.We finally have a leader in place till we find our 1 qb.Now lets see what we can do for wr and db go browns.
