Hey, Cleveland fan here...can I get any input on Reuben Droughns? I personally like him, based a lot on his character and his story, but he also seemed to be pretty reliable last year. Any opinons would be great.

As for our DL/your DL...not bad. I'm assuming Brown got a low, incentive based contract. I mean, you got a #1 overall pick who has played well, but been injured all the time. In Gerard Warren, he's not horrible. If Andre Patterson can "let him loose" like he wants to, maybe he'll be all right. As for Ekuban, I have no idea why you guys traded for him. I mean, he's OK, something like 8 sacks last year, but he isn't anything special.

Well, any input on Droughns would be much appreciated. And, I would love to see William Green in Denver to test that "any RB can be successful in our system" philosophy.

Your initial impression of Droughns is accurate. Good character, runs REALLY hard, good blocker, decent receiver. Won't outrun anyone. Can return kicks, but not really well. But, you never can tell what will happen when you take a RB out of Denver. Denver's OL open holes quickly, and the RBs are trained to get through them quickly. Also, Denver's WRs and TEs are good downfield blockers. Will this be the case in Cleveland?

Thanks for the info. Hopefully we can add Mike Williams @ #3. He would seem to be a very good blocker due to his size. We added a couple new guards, so I think we're at least average at the OL. We'll see, I guess.

Thanks again
