Cleveland Browns: How Does Champ Bailey Signing Affect Browns Pick?
If The Broncos Pass On Patrick Peterson, Could He Fall To No. 6?
Patrick Peterson was not expected to last long on the draft board. While it is unusual for a cornerback to go in the Top 5 of an NFL Draft, Peterson is considered a rare talent who will have an immediate impact in the NFL.
The Broncos now have re-signed Champ Bailey, meaning they may pass on Peterson in favor of Da'Quan Bowers, Robert Quinn, or Nick Fairley if the Panthers do not take him.
The Browns need a wide receiver, another cornerback and some pass rushers. So the Browns can look to draft A.J. Green, Da'Quan Bowers, Robert Quinn or Peterson. All or none may be available to them at the sixth pick, depending on how crazy the draft gets.
The Browns have gotten burned with the last several wide receivers they drafted. Braylon Edwards is a head case who can't hold on to the ball (Except for this year since it is a contract year), and Mohamed Massaquoi and Brian Robiskie just seem incapable of learning how to run a pro route.
Cornerback Eric Wright imploded last year, meaning Peterson represents a need. The Browns drafted Joe Haden in the first round last year, and putting Peterson across the field from Haden would give the Browns one of the best-looking secondaries on paper going into 2011.
There really is no "wrong" pick for the Browns, and the Champ Bailey signing only makes things more intriguing for Cleveland.
