    2) What has been your favorite NFL Draft post at WFNY recently?

    1.) I sure hope it’s Dion Jordan. If I’m the Browns, I’m trying to get a 2nd rounder or two for Sheard and/or Rubin today, drafting Jordan and trying to address the secondary in Rd. 2.
    2.) 04/22 — Oregon OLB Dion Jordan – I honestly didn’t know about/hadn’t really heard much about the guy until that post, and he’s my #1 want tonight.

  • Woods

    1) Who do you think the Cleveland Browns will select in the first round?

    My preference is for a trade down. Multiple trades down if at all possible. Miami or San Diego to pick up a 2nd rounder.

    Who do I think the Browns will pick? Milliner.

    Who would piss me off the most as a Browns pick? Geno Smith.

    2) What has been your favorite NFL Draft post at WFNY recently?

    The impact of Free Agency on the Browns draft strategy.

    My all time favorite post on WFNY was your podcast with Peter Pattakos where you both talked about encouraging Kanicki to post his own blog. That guy is money and so interesting to read. I am glad to know that you guys were instrumental in getting him to write long form pieces.

    (1)
    I think all 5 selections head of us are for tackles (3xOT and 2xDT).
    I think a Mountaineer is taken #6.
    I think that WVU player is Tavon Austin but for the Rams.
    I think the Cleveland Browns will select Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington & Tyler Eifert, TE, ND in the 1st round.

    (2)
    Jacob/Kirk back-n-forth draft strategy post.

  • The_Matt_Of_Akron

    1) Who do you think the Cleveland Browns will select in the first round?
    I think the Browns will select Chance Warmack, I want the Browns to get Milliner or Ansah.

  • 1) Who do you think the Cleveland Browns will select in the first round?

    I think they will take Geno Smith — very Cleveland Browns of them — but I want them to take Ziggy Ansah.

    2) What has been your favorite NFL Draft post at WFNY recently?

    The Browns and the First Round: Tyler Eifert because it would be ridiculous if Eifert went this high but I’d love to see him become a Brown. Go Irish.

  • jpyles

    1) Who do you think the Cleveland Browns will select in the first round?
    I think the Browns will select Milliner, but I hope they trade down.
    2) What has been your favorite NFL Draft post at WFNY recently?
    My favorite was the WFNY Roundtable: Browns draft predictions for the 1st round.

  • 1) Who do you think the Cleveland Browns will select in the first round?

    Dee Milliner

    2) What has been your favorite NFL Draft post at WFNY recently?

    I enjoyed the roundatable draft discussion.

  • ctownloyalty

    1) Who do you think the Cleveland Browns will select in the first round? Milliner. This Geno hoopla is nothing but a smokescreen…… I hope

    Numbers- Draft Day. Can’t get enough!

  • STH-H

    1) Who do you think the Cleveland Browns will select in the first round?
    After trading down, they’ll take Xavier Rhodes.

    2) What has been your favorite NFL Draft post at WFNY recently?

    I was a fan of the Fun with Numbers: Draft Day Edition.

  • mgbode

    I wouldn’t mess with a lawyer if I were you.

  • SummitOmar

    1) Who do you think the Cleveland Browns will select in the first round? I think they will draft Eifert after a trade down. I would love them to draft Warmack.

    2) What has been your favorite NFL Draft post at WFNY recently? The Diff: Cleveland Browns mock draft analysis I found the whole exercise fascinating. I would have liked to find out how many thought we would trade and with who.

  • BROSEPH

    1) Who do you think the Cleveland Browns will select in the first round?

    Dion Jordan
    2) What has been your favorite NFL Draft post at WFNY recently?

    I liked the Diff draft analysis, as a math/statistics guy myself, I am always intrigued when sports and math overlap

  • Jaker

    1) Who do you think the Cleveland Browns will select in the first round?

    The Browns will select Dee Milliner. And my favorite post was Dee Milliner’s quote on him and Joe Haden forming the best Cb combo

  • DieHardHomer

    1) Who do you think the Cleveland Browns will select in the first round?
    2) What has been your favorite NFL Draft post at WFNY recently?

    I believe they will select Dion Jordan. My favorite post is the Roundtable from earlier today; I definitely agree with all (most?) of you that the Browns should not be taking a QB early on, if at all. Praying all the Geno rumors are misinformation…

  • mgbode

    Dang. Bills not us. Mingo is a nice consolation prize
