My 2010 Browns Wishlist: Free Agents and Draft Picks

As a Browns fan, I am always in the mindset of 'maybe next year.'  With that said, here is my wish list for the 2010 season free agency and NFL Draft pick ups.

  • Antoine Winfield: The veteran cornerback would bring a much needed veteran presence to an extremely young secondary.
  • Troy Smith: He is a quarterback from Cleveland.  A welcome athletic back-up for Quinn and Brett Ratliff (in hopes that Derek Anderson is traded for draft picks)
  • Mike Nugent: A kicker with great power and room to grow.  Dawson could be on his way out of Cleveland soon.

Picking three ex-Buckeyes to start was not my intention going in.

  • LenDale White: With Jamal Lewis aging there will be a need for a strong, smash-mouth RB in White.
  • Steve Breaston: Braylon Edwards will be on his way out of Cleveland and the Browns will be in serious need of wr's. Breaston will also replace Cribbs as a kick-returner if he ends up leaving as well.

DRAFT PICKS

  • Brandon Spikes, MLB, Florida: A hard hitting, fast player with immediate starter implications needed in one of the weakest linebacker corps in the NFL.
  • Zoltan Mesko, P, Michigan: Say what you want, punting is something the Browns will be doing a lot of over the next couple seasons.  Mangini is a ball control/field position coach and having one of the strongest punters with a mid-round pick would be perfect.
  • George Selvie, DE, USF: If Spikes is gone, take Selvie and put him at OLB.  Using him as a 3-4 DE may hurt his potential, but with a 6'4" 250lb body, you never can tell.
  • Jim Cordle, OT, Ohio State: The left side of the line is respectable with Joe Thomas, but putting Jim Cordle in as the RT would add a solid presence that has been lacking in recent years.
  • Jordan Shipley, WR, Texas: Shipley has been Colt McCoy's roommate and main target at Texas for what seems like 10 years.  Shipley's hard-nosed playing ability would be perfect for the Browns.
  • Jacoby Ford, WR, Clemson: Fast, fast, fast. This guy could be the next Devin Hester and if Cribbs leaves, we will need a good returner.

More to come.
