My view of the world tells me past actions are a good indication of future events. That does not bode well for Browns fans. The Browns have had more 1st round picks than any team in NFL history over the last several years. And for the most part, those guys are not on the roster. That is what happens when you put a lawyer in charge of the draft.
In that draft, the Browns had 2 1st round picks. With the 8th overall pick they selected Justin “No tackle” Gilbert. Had they gone to his pro day, they would have heard him say “check my film” when someone asked him to catch some punts.
At #22 they selected Johnny “Wreck this league” Manziel. Had they gone to the Texas A&M pro day, they might have found out he was a heavy drinker and decided against him.
So, I ask the question again. What will the Browns do in the draft? From a Browns fan since 1954, I have to guess that they will find a way to screw it up again.
