    And I know you're not necessarily supposed to draft for need but other than O-Line, what is this team's biggest weaknesses? They are good at QB & RB. May be able to add a WR later in the draft to develop but not a dire need. TE is a definite need as Njoku hasn't been extremely reliable and they have no depth. Could draft for DL & secondary depth but they are pretty solid there too. Maybe another stud LB? There aren't a lot of "needs" other than O-Line, which just shows how far Dorsey has brought this roster.

    2. LBer - unless Mack/Takitati prove otherwise. Kirksey likely gone, Schobert not signed past this season leaves a lot of question marks.

    3. DB - We're lean at safety and CB outside of our top 3

    4. TE - Njoku has yet to "breakout" [inconsistent hands, inconsistent blocker] and out depth behind him is garbage

    1. Oline - As you said. We have two good players on the oline and a bunch of JAGs to below avg players behind that.

    There is an argument for drafting for need, once your team is established and has a QB.  This is especially true for very important positions such as the OL. Hopefully Baker remains legitimate and this team is on the right track, because I won't QQ about drafting for need if that is the position we are in.  

    In the case of the Browns since 1999, they have been a pile of shit, so finding a QB and going for BPA was the best approach.

    The thing that is even scarier about the O-Line is that I think Zeitler made Hubbard look a lot better than he was and now Zeitler's not there so Hubbard has nobody to help cover his ass.

    Color Rush is Primary uniform this year! Supposedly will wear it 6 times at home with brown alternates the other 2. No more bullshit white every game. Yes I know uniforms are meaningless...

    That is all well and good........along with “bull shit” white. Because at the end of the game day, all that matters is.........the W!

    Go Browns!
