2011 NFL Draft: Browns Look to Add Dominant Pass Rusher at No. 6 Pick
2011 NFL Draft the Browns will have alot of options to look at, but one area they must address is that of a dominant pass rusher that they have lacked.
Mel Kiper and the National Football Post do not think that a pass rusher will be where Mike Holmgren and the Browns will end up. They have the Browns going with Georgia wide receiver A.J Green. But, with the Bengals possibly taking him it might not be in the cards for Cleveland.
James Walker agrees with this sentiment as well.
"Cleveland's passing game needs help. Rookie quarterback Colt McCoy had no one to throw the ball to last season. That really showed in the final two games, when the stiff defenses of the Ravens and Steelers put a hurting on McCoy. A legitimate No. 1 threat like A.J. Green could be just what they need in rookie head coach Pat Shurmur's new West Coast offense."
Yes, Green would give the Browns a legitimate wide out for the first time since they came back into the league over 12 years ago (sorry Braylon Edwards). If he is on the board, it would be difficult to pass him up. Also, do not discount the name Julio Jones.
Todd McShay has the Browns getting the pass rush they big time need next season.
With taking Da'Quan Bowers they would be getting a player that was long rumored to possibly go to Carolina with the 1st overall pick.
"New defensive coordinator Dick Jauron is leading the transition to a 4-3 scheme and needs to find the proper personnel along the front seven, and finding a traditional 4-3 end is a top priority this offseason. Bowers is an ideal fit, with the power, quickness an instincts to be an every-down end in the NFL. He might fall this far only because of lingering concerns about recent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee, but if the Browns can get Bowers they will certainly be happy."
It will be interesting to see where the Browns go with this pick. They improved last season, but need to make a splash to be a playoff contender this coming season.
I believe that the Browns should in fact go with Bowers or Quinn with this pick to erase some of the woes that have festered in Cleveland for some time.
