New Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam III must be learning quickly that Cleveland fans bark fiercely and represent a wide-ranging span of opinion.
Desperate for a winner, each fan will profess to know exactly what the team needs to do next to become a contender and end the city's long pro sports nightmare.
But to a Cleveland fan the draft is no joke, bubba.
This is serious business. We're rain dancing at this point, dehydrated, cooked, blistering in the exhausting heat of constant losing and desperate for some precipitation of talent.
So what is it exactly that Browns fans want CEO Joe Banner and GM Michael Lombardi—BanBardi, if you will—to do with the No. 6 pick in the 2013 NFL draft?
Looking at the current best-guess depth chart (OurLads.com) there are holes and question-marks, in no particular order, at free safety, cornerback and linebacker on the defense and left guard, fullback, wide receiver and tight end on offense. They also have to settle the kicker situation.
Most of the Browns moves this offseason have provided them flexibility with what to do at No. 6.
So the big question becomes: Who's likely to be available there?
The Kansas City Chiefs, picking first and according to the common wisdom, will likely take an offensive tackle or maybe a defensive tackle.
Most experts in mock drafts on NFL.com have got DT Sharrif Floyd going to Oakland Raiders at No. 3. And if they're sticking with QB Michael Vick, the Philadelphia Eagles would be smart to protect him with one of the stellar offensive lineman available at No. 4, though CB is also a tangible possibility.
Most Browns fans want the team to nab Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner or Oregon DE/LB Dion Jordan if either are available at No. 6. Some will also make a case for Ziggy Ansah, the DE/LB from Brigham Young. (NFL.com)
Both Milliner and Jordan will likely not be there at No. 6.
If both are gone, some think the Browns should go with Ansah, but others say the team should look to trade down, as long as it's not too many spots.
With the new rookie wage scale hitting, trading at the top of the draft became more prevalent in 2012, with four teams moving up in and into the first 10 picks. With the right situation, trades can certainly be expected at the top of the draft in 2013.
If Milliner and Jordan are both gone that means that the first five teams to pick probably left somebody's coveted offensive lineman on the table at No. 6 and that team may very much like to move up.
Ideally, the Browns wouldn't have to slide that far.
But any way, by not trading past 12, the Browns would leave themselves with a shot at a variety of good talent at positions of need.
Cyprien and Austen are both listed as having had a private workout/visit (DawgsByNature.com) with the Browns while Eifert is listed as having been interviewed at February's NFL Combine.
Browns fans argue endlessly, day after day, about the distinctions between these possibilities and which choice is best to help bring the Browns back into contention.
But under this outline, in every scenario the team would get a top-tier prospect at a position of need.
The Browns have given themselves options. So now it's up to BanBardi to figure out which is the best one.
