hey whats up i'm a ravens fan and i don't like the browns but i have an honest question.
The Browns are pursuing Ed Hartwell or Kendrell Bell, at least according to i think ditchdiggers signature. With Hartwell or Bell, along with Andra Davis, you would then have 2 quality MLB's, making 3-4 sensible.
The problem with that is that DJ could be your pick at No. 3. DJ is a phenominal LB, but he is MUCH better suited for 4-3. He won't be able to run around blocks in a 3-4 scheme, and his role in a 3-4 scheme wouldn't suit his game. So I think you guys should draft Rolle or maybe even Braylon Edwards at No. 3. Tell me what you think.

Thank you for visiting us. Hopefully the fans will control themselves, but I'm not promising anything.

It is not me with that in my sig, it is DaBrowns41. I have no sig.

I don't think we're pursuing Ed Hartwell, I think he is out of our price range. Roman Phifer has a better chance of coming here to fill the extra MLB spot, but obviously that is a stop gap solution. Kendrell Bell failed a physical today in Dallas because of his groin. Don't think he was visiting Berea anytime soon, anyway.

While I agree with your assessment of DJ, you'll have a hard time of convincing anyone else here. I don't agree with your options, though. I would much rather have a Ronnie Brown or Shawne Merriman. Both have everything needed for immediate success, and pro bowl potential in our new system. DJ will struggle in the 3-4, at least initially and I would rather dangle him as trade bait than actually draft him.

yeah i do think merriman is the best option, as i said on your post in the panthers forum, but i just don't think that the browns will end up drafting him.as good as he is, while i am sold that he is top 3 material, i'm not sure if teams are. as for ronnie brown, i have a feeling he'll b off the board by no. 3. thanks for the feedback.

You'll probably get your wish.

Just something I saw on GBNReport.com.

Shawne Merriman ran a 4.45 40 at the combine. A 272 pound man ran 4.45. That is crazy.

Shocked

wow. he'll be a cleveland brown most likely, no way he falls out of the top 10. its a shame, i was holding on to a thin thread of hope that somehow he would drop on draft day like terrell suggs did and be available at No. 22. i knew it was highly unlikely but now its impossible. o well, i wish the best of luck to that guy.

If he's that fast, he better be converted to an Outside backer... that's rediculous... He better be a Brown next year...
