First things first, I am assuming that both Suh and Berry will be gone by the time the Browns select. Secondly, I am asking the Browns to fix the largest problem they have had since the return. The problem, they pass up excellent QBs because they think they have 2 QBs. Can't settle for Big Ben because we have Kelly and Couch - so traded up for a TE. Sanchez at number 5? Nope - we got DA and Quinn. This is almost like they have never heard the NFL axiom that if you have 2 QBs you don't have one. Lets kill that issue! Here is the proposal:
- Trade Derek Anderson for whatever we can get. Believe it or not - I think he may command a number 5 pick from a team like Oakland. Having a QB with a big arm that is not accurate will fit perfectly with WRs that are fast - but can't catch.
- Trade Brady Quinn for whatever we can get. I think maybe a 4 or 5 to reunite with Charlie as a backup. Or possibly to carry Brett Favre's jock in Minnesota.
- Draft Sam Bradford - QB - Oklahoma. Great size. Great Accuracy. Nice Arm. Great athlete. Reminds me of Brady (Tom not Quinn). In addition to being a Browns fan - I am a Longhorns fan that hates all things Sooner. Get the Cleveland Clinic to check that shoulder and if it sound - take advantage of the best QB at #7.
- Trade a pick for Matt Hasselbeck. He's old but crafty. Probably still better than both Quinn and DA. Let Bradford develop - and when he is ready - we're back.
