Well after the sad season in 09-10 with the 5-11 record- and a very easy schedule that no body gave them any greif at all for! I mean they played teams like The: Lions (L), Bears (L), Raiders (W), Jaguars (W), Bills (W), etc.
But they do play in a tough division though- which is the AFC North- playing with contending teams such as the Pittsburgh Steelers (09-10 sleepers after winng the Super bowl last year)- which the Browns actually beat one game of two! The Baltimore Ravens ( who made it to beating the Patriots in the first round, but then losing to the Indianapolis Colts- as only wild card team!) Plus, the Cinncinatti Bengals- definately a surprise to the Nfl- going into the playoffs- as the first seed in this tough AFC North, after a heartbreaking-last place finish the year before in their conference.
So that all leads the Cleveland browns to a seventh overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. And let me tell you this, the Browns really need a better contending offfense if they want to become something! Mainly a QB- because Quinn and Anderson need somone better (no offfense Ratliff) to go along with them... That or a wide receiver after giving up Braylon Edwards to the Jets. So I think a good pick for The Cleveland Browns, would be Oklahoma State WR- Dez Bryant, because of his great athleticism and ball-catching skill, just what they need if he isn't already picked! But then again- at the Quarter Back position, heisman winning Sam Bradford seems to be one of the top QB's going into the draft.
So overall it's either Bryant or Bradford as the first round pick for them. They also may try to trade som low picks to maybe get another first or second round pick, because I'm guessing they will be looking at a young RB, with the Jamal Lewis factor of his age. Probably the Georgia Tech Running Back- Jonathan Dwyer if they can get their hands on him. What will Mangini do, it's up to him to make good decisions in the upcoming season if he wants to keep his job, which he did not in his last seaon as the Jets coach- and just barely made it through not losing his job last year with the Browns. Bryant and Bradford both can be great team leaders... The just need to prove it!
