I'm 18 years old, I made my first mock draft when I was 10 years old. I believe, whole heartily, that I could have ha a better draft than Eric Mangini has put forth so far for the Browns. Only one word can truly describe this draft: painful.
First, the Browns trade there fifth overall selection to the Jets for their 17th pick, 50th pick, and three players. Sounds decent right? Wrong, the players we got are stop-gape players at best.
We trade down three more times passing on the likes of, Jeremy Maclin, Brandon Pettigrew, and even Chris "Beanie" Wells.
With the 21st pick of the draft we select Alex Mack, a pretty solid player I agree. The only problem is we had many more holes than the center position. Hank Fraley is very solid and a very good leader. I believe he had a few more good years in him.
With the 36th overall pick the Browns select Brian Robiskie, not bad. Then you hear Rey Maualuga was on the board, Rey Maualuga what a value in the second. Oh wait, Everett Brown was also available, what the heck? Two sure fire first round picks last till the second round, and we pass on them, for Brian Robiskie. At this point, I'm praying to God to strike me dead.
With the 50th overall selection we pick Mohamm.... , I can't even say it, Mohammed Massaquoi. Isn't he almost the same as Robiskie. They should have either taken Michael Johnson or Herman Johnson.
Then, two picks later they choose David Veikune. Who? Why is Mangini sticking pins in our heads. If you wanted DE, please select Michael Johnson...Michael Johnson please!
Overall, this was one of the most painful drafts to watch. No wonder Mangini was fired.
