I started a thread like this last year.

If you could add a young healthy version of any Browns player to play for the Browns since the expansion era to the current team who would you add.

Last year I picked Tim Couch. I believe he was a very good QB who was put in what might be the worst spot any QB has been put in. I don't believe he was a Bust. look at his numbers with what he had to throw to, to protect him and as a running game. I think he did very well.

This year I don't add Tim Couch. I want to see what Weeden can do.

I would of add Jamir Miller OLB. The first expansion era Brown to go to the probowl. a young healthy Jamir Miller would add a lot to our pass rush and give us two very good LB's We are so shallow at LB.

Who would you add and why?

DE Cortney Brown would look very good with our young DL.

Miller is a pretty good choice and he is still one of my favourite Browns of all time.

I was thinking Ryan Tucker, keep Branden Weeden upright.

I'd like to see a younger Ryan Tucker as well. Stick him at RG (as he did his last year or two) and call it a day.

I don't know if Courtney Brown would have amounted to anything had he stayed healthy.

Jamir Miller would be nice right now.

Gary Baxter would be nice at FS right now.

If I could pick any Brown from one season it would be 2007 Braylon. Overall I'd say Jamir Miller or maybe a young Kamerion Wimbley.

A young healthy Courtney Brown. Oh what could have been. If he could have stayed healthy he would have been just so beastly

A young and healthy Courtney Brown should win this thread by a landslide. This, and every year.

How about a young & healthy Winslow? We'd have a plethora of targets for Weeden then.

It would be nice, but DE > TE as far as positional value goes and it's not even close.

Also, Winslow lacked blocking skills. Brown was an all-around talent that played the run a little better than he rushed the passer. He would have went #1 overall in any year he came out.

He had just set the NCAA record for career sacks and tackles for loss. He was 6'4" 271#, ran a 4.52 40, had a 37" vertical and benched 225 26 times.

If only that body could have stayed healthy...

for me it would have to be

#1 Brown, he would of been a stud if injuries didnt derail his career
#2 Kamerion Wimbley, i think he could be a great DE for us
#3 Winslow, if this offense and with Weeden he would put up crazy numbers
#4 Anothy Henry, he was a good DB had 10INTs in one season...I think he would be a great #2 DB for us
#5 Kevin Johnson, I think he would be a great with this team and would be a great WR for us

How about a healthy lacharles bentley. Put him at RG where he was a pro bowler at one time in his career. What could have been. Also Jamir miller would really help our rush defense

If I get Lecharles Bentley before he tore everything in his knee, I'd take him. Stick him at guard and let Pinkston and Luavao fight it out at the other spot.

he didnt tear everything in his knee, he just tore his patellar tendon and that just ruined his career cause he was never able to return from it.
