Cleveland Browns: 5 Players They Should Avoid in the 2011 NFL Draft

A year ago before the 2010 NFL I draft I wrote an article about 5 players the Cleveland Browns needed to avoid, for various reasons. Some I just didn't expect to be good, some had character issues, and some were simply overrated on many draft boards I saw.

As it turns out, the 5 players I listed all had significant problems.The Panthers are already looking to replace QB Jimmy Clausen, likely with the #1 overall pick, and at one point in 2010 they signed Brian St. Pierre off the street instead of giving Tony Pike a chance. LeGarrette Blount had a nice season, after being cut from his Original team, the Titans, for punching a teammate during practice. This justified the many who had questions about his character after being suspended for punching a Boise State player while at Oregon.Ryan Mathews also disappointed, though in large part due to injuries. And Myron Rolle, despite many Browns fans saying he could come in and start immediately, never saw the field.

After what I would consider a strong success, I have decided to write a similar article this year. Here are 5 players that the Browns should AVOID in the 2011 NFL draft.
