The votes are in, and after a record 944 votes our DBN Big Board slots 1-5 are as follows:
1. Jadeveon Clowney--2479 total points
2. Sammy Watkins--2396 total points
3. Teddy Bridgewater--1660 total points
4. Johnny Manziel--1656 total points
5. Khalil Mack--1647 total points
On to the 6-10 slots!
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 Browns to draft 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 voteable 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 Clowney, Watkins, Bridgewater, Manziel, and Mack were the first 5 players selected. Who would you take if the Browns had the 6th pick? Choose him for the 6th ranking. Now, assume those 6 guys are drafted and the Browns traded back to the 7th pick. Who would you take? Choose him for the 7th ranking. Rinse, repeat.
Please vote only once.
I will add the next 5 "best players available" players (according to Mocking the Draft's rankings) to the voteable pool of players. New polls will happen every two days or so until the draft, and we'll compile the DBN community big board 5 players at a time.
If there are players you think I should include in the voting pool--especially if they aren't coming up in MtD's rankings, let me know and I will put them in for the next poll. Thanks for voting!
