I donít believe any team knows anything. The Browns are picking first. They donít know who they are going to take.

Don't you think that these trades on draft day have gotten out of control? I can't believe how much it costs to move up and it gets worse every year. It's starting to make that movie "Draft Day" with Kevin Costner look tame.

I think the mantra that if you don't have a good quarterback, you can't win is starting to overcorrect itself a little bit. Teams now seem to be either overpaying for FA quarterbacks, or paying a king's ransom to move up. I think teams see what happened with the Rams (Goff) and Eagles (Wentz) when they moved up to grab the QB's they wanted, and now everyone's trying to do the same thing.

It will be interesting if we get another year with a bunch of Tim Couches if teams back off again down the road.

IMO there are more Couches and Tebows in this draft than Carsons by a long shot. It will be fun to see the failures.

I'm so glad that we don't have to worry about that shit for awhile! There's nothing worse than being in QB hell. There's so many more busts than hits drafting a QB and it usually takes a few years to even find out if you guessed right never mind developing one.
