Bowers has been all but written off at this point, and for the life of me I don't know why. I've heard no medical reasons that his knee would be a concern in the future.
I feel like some teams have been perpetuating the rumors about his knee to try and ensure that he will fall to them in the draft. I could see the Browns being one of those teams.
Mike Holmgren knows what he's doing, so it wouldn't surprise me if the Browns know that his knee is fine and are planning to draft him. I'm not saying I believe this will happen, but it wouldn't surprise me.
Bowers is the prototype for a 4-3 defensive end, but Sheard is the prototype Dick Jauron defensive end. End is the most important position in his system and it wouldn't surprise me to see the Browns go ahead and lock the position down in the first two rounds.
The Browns have to address wide receiver at some point and Little would be a solid choice in the third, but he does have some risk having been suspended.
Reid would be ideal to develop on the fly at right tackle.
Chekwa could develop into Eric Wright's replacement. He couldn't possibly be worse.
The Browns do need another big body in the middle, and Williams is a stout run defender.
Saunders would be a very risky pick. He's incredibly gifted but he comes with serious baggage. He could be a star at tight end in the NFL if he can pull his head from his posterior.
I've run out of silly things to say about Mark LeGree. Suffice it to say that I really think the Browns should target him with their seventh round pick. It will pay dividends.
