Rank the top five available players. Take talent, value, need, and character into account if you think the Browns should take these things in to account when drafting. If you always want the best player available simply rank your top 5 players available.
Players will receive 5 points for every first place vote, 4 for every second place vote, and so on. They will receive 0 points if they are unranked. Total points from all ballots will be added, and the 5 players with the most points will be taken out of the pool of available players and put up on the big board.
This is not a mock draft.
Don't predict what will happen
Don't think about other teams
Don't worry about who is available. Assume everyone you can vote for is available. (I will take players out of the vote-able pool once we put them on the board)
Just rank your guys in the order you would like to see them drafted by the Browns. Assume that all of the players on our board were the first 10 players selected in the draft. Who would you take with the 11th pick? Choose him for the 11th ranking. Now, assume those 11 guys are drafted and the Browns traded back to the 12th pick. Who would you take? Choose him for the 12th ranking. Rinse, repeat.
Please vote only once.
Using the Mocking the Draft rankings as a guideline I will compile a pool of 25 draft eligible players. We will take a poll and rank players five at a time. New polls will happen every two days or so until the draft.
If there are players you think I should include in the draft-eligible pool--especially if they aren't coming up in McShay's rankings, let me know and I will put them in for the next poll. In your comment be sure to say "add ____" so I can search the comments for the word "add." Thanks for voting!
