The majority of draft experts are picking Cam Newton, Heisman Trophy winning quarterback from Auburn as the first pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Anyone who has followed the draft in previous years is aware that players will rise and fall on the draft charts on a daily basis.

The Cleveland Browns have the sixth pick of the upcoming draft. If the teams picking above Cleveland pass on Newton, what should Cleveland do with their pick?

Several teams picking below the Browns could be looking for improvements at the quarterback position. This would allow Cleveland to use their pick as trade bait, possibly receiving multiple picks to fill their numerous needs.
Many insist on picking "the best player available". If at pick No. 6, Newton is considered the best available, should the Browns add to their quarterback stable?

Although many fans were impressed with Colt McCoys' performance last season, for a rookie, many were not, and believe picking Newton (if available) is a must.

Believing that the Browns do not need to pursue a quarterback, nor the "best player available" theory, trading down would seem to be the most valuable option.

It is merely speculation that Newton could fall into the laps of the Browns, as teams picking above Cleveland do need a quarterback.

However, if Newton does fall to Cleveland, what would you do?
