IrishBrowns hopes to escalate quickly but not get out of hand.
Default Browns Baitin' #2 pick?

Obviously a lot of talk has been going on about the Browns wanting to trade up to the number 2 slot. I have been thinking a lot about the Browns wanting to bait another team to trade up to the the number 2 pick, so we can get our guy at #4 Justin Blackmon. Let's say, Washington wants to trade up to #2 to get RGIII. That's fine, the Browns will end up with their man Blackmon at 4 and remove the Rams completely from the scenario from grabbing him. I don't think we are ready to give up on McCoy based on the fact that Holmgren and co. believe it takes a QB more than one year to learn the offense. Maybe we would take a QB in a middle round somewhere, but here we have an opportunity to stay at 4..Get Blackmon, finally a freak offensive weapon, and then we will still have our #22 to get another playmaker. I hope the Browns are just making it seem like they have interest so another team makes the big move

Definite possibility if they have a guy they really like who they are hoping to be there at 4 but I don't think much teams will have locked onto a specific player yet.

The Browns could use Blackmon, but they may see better value in taking a different position there and hoping for Michael Floyd, Reuben Randle, Alshon Jeffrey etc at 22 for example.

If the Browns have decided to go forward with McCoy and aren't going to take Griffin then it may make sense to bait a team into trading up for him so another elite player "falls" to them. Alternatively though they may hope RG3 falls to 4 and if they really don't want him they can move down a few places and pick up extra picks.

It's way too early to properly question team's motives since we're not even finished the combine yet.

I think we'll see very early on in the free agency market if the Browns are serious about acquiring a QB this year. I would be shocked if they don't aggresively pursue bringing in a franchise QB this year to replace McCoy atop the depth chart.

I agree, RG111 will be a great franchise QB in this league and even at his best, McCoy will never be more than average.

The Browns will end up with egg on their face if they pass up the opportunity to draft RG111 and the franchise might not be competitive for another decade if that is their strategy. Even Flynn does not have Griffin's potential.

We are sitting on a gold mine since St.Louis doesn't need a franchise QB but we will have to outbid Washington and Miami, but with the #5 pick, we are in the driver's seat.

GO AWAY
BAITIN!



(actually a very smart post that didn't deserve such a dumb response. The Browns not really being interested in RG3 is exactly their M.O.)

I don't read the Cleveland papers or listen to their sports shows. But, is there a lot of pressure on them to make a move for a franchise qb?

They have completely stunk since they came back into the league. Even the most die hearted fans need some hope or season ticket sales will finally feel the pressure.
Lerner has shown a quick hook personality when his team doesn't perform, so there had better be some improvement soon or even a respected football man like Holmgren will be fired.

If the Browns don't come out with RG3 or Flynn this offseason is a failure.

I don't see the baiting angle.

If any team wants to insure themselves the right to draft RGIII, they're gonna have to trade up to the 2nd pick. Getting too cute thinking he'll fall to a lower pick is crazy.

EIther the Browns make the trade up to #2 and put together a better deal than the Skins, or they don't.

This reminds me of the bidding war between Washington and Chicago for the rights to Jay Cutler. It's going to be that heated IMO.

I don't see how Mike Holmgren can fairly assess Colt McCoy and not believe RGIII is a quantum upgrade.

But for CLeveland to become competitive sooner than later, trading down in the first round and taking a QB like Tannehill, or Foles in the second and acquiring Olineman, an impact WR and a top shelf RB may be the more sensible move.

If the SKins can't get the 2nd pick away from St. Louis, I believe this will be Shanny's draft strategy btw.

I don't believe the Rams taking Blackmon ahead of the Browns is all that likely.

If the Rams are picking #2, I'd guess it'd be Kalil or Claiborne.

Really they are baiting teams so they can get Blackmon? Is he really that special? How are you so sure he is YOUR guy?

If they don't get Flynn, they'll have to trade up for RG3. The only question is what Washington will offer or will they be happy to try to wait for Tannehill (or someone else).

The Browns will acquire the #2 pick from the Rams and select RG3 to lead the offense with more weapons and better players. RG can throw deep with accuracy and create more overall opportunity to score than the limited QB that the Browns have now (McCoy) who is better suited as a back-up. The Browns have many needs but remember that all of the other teams drafting are getting better at the same time as you are. When you need to up-grade a position, you must begin with the most important position on the team which is Quarterback. If the Browns don't take RG3 this draft then when will the next opportunity be to get a QB like RG3? I just hope that picks #4 and #22 are going to be enough to get that #2 pick.

Flynn seems more suited to join the Dolphins having gone to a southern college and for having connections with Philbin in Miami.

St. Louis needs to be careful not to overplay their hand. If the Rams want to trade that #2 overall pick, they should do it before the other quarterback dominoes (Flynn, Manning, etc.) start to fall. The market is going to start to dwindle once those guys are eligible to sign.

Scott, Just got done listening to you on 92.3 FM "The Fan" in Cleveland. How coincidental since I just joined your forum tonight. Good job!! You know that the price tag for that #2 pick will never be less than what it is now for the Browns (4 & 22) regardless of other teams filling their quarterback needs. One thing for sure is that the Rams want to drop that hot potato (#2) for sure big time - That's why they are testing the waters now at the combine about down the road possibilities.

Thanks for the kind words and welcome to the forums!

As for the Rams, what if Peyton Manning signs with Washington and Matt Flynn signs with Miami? Then all of the sudden Cleveland is the only team interested in moving up for RG3 and they hold all of the leverage. After all, there is no chance of the Rams taking RG3 for themselves, so if the Browns play their cards right they conceivably get away with dealing their second rounder to move up a couple spots and hang on to #22. Heck, if that scenario plays out Cleveland may even be able to stand pat and get RG3 at #4.

I was about to disagree with your original post but then I thought of this scenario.

However, I think it's highly unlikely that Manning signs with WAS. I guess Flynn could though. And then if Manning signs with MIA, the only teams needing QBs would be CLE and SEA. In that situation, the Rams would have no leverage assuming they won't deal RG3 to SEA. But that would give MIN all the power, and put SEA in play, which would make CLE have to offer something to move up one measly spot.

The smokescreening and negotiating behind the scenes must be fascinating. The whole situation is so complex with so many permutations based on which FAs go where, which teams prefer which draftees, and how the GMs play their hands. And a huge piece of the puzzle is a guy who may or may not have any arm strength (and could muddy the waters even more by going to NYJ or ARZ).

The QB carousel this year is just fascinating.

Splitting hairs really. The WCO run in Green Bay is very similar to the one that Mike Holmgren has basically installed in Cleveland.

Seattle albeit a minor player in this opera would still pose a threat to the braintrust in the Browns war room on draft day. The Browns cant risk any threats from anyone so they have to act. It would just be better to give the Rams #4 & #22 to appease them. I really want RG3. What I would do with the rest of the draft is trade the 5 picks in rounds 4 thru 7 for whatever I could get in the second round. There are 7 good WR and 7 good CB's that could start for the Browns that will be gone by the end of Round 2. I'd settle for 4 damn good starters out of this draft. (plus one free agent starter).

Very true, but you only need two teams to be bidding to drive the price up. Are teams really going to trust Manning ? I don't think I would.

One thing for sure, the Rams and Fisher have to cash in on this draft. The future of the Rams in St.Louis is at stake. If the Rams can turn things around quickly and create some excitement, it might be harder for them to bolt to LA. The funny thing is, the Rams still play in a pretty full stadium considering how bad, make that how terrible they have been the past 5 years.

I agree with moving the pick, but I don't think Washington and Miami will be able to pick the FA class as cleanly as is suggested.

Free agency will help sort some of this out.I dont want them to trade away the picks to move up for RG3. I'm a Browns fan and I like RG3 a lot I just feel giving up numerous picks to get him is risky. We need weapons all over the field. I take RG3 at #4 if hes still there, I also like the idea of going after Matt Flynn in free agency.
