    THREE GOOD MEN
    Everette Brown
    Gilbert
    Moore

    Day Two would then be the time for the backup interior lineman, OT and ILB.

    I've had him as a low 1st for a couple of months. I'm still amazed to see how many have him a round later or more, especially with so many defensess switching to the 34.

    I presume you mean Donald Brown, the Connecticut RB? :) Day 1 seems a tad high for Cody Brown the Connecticut DE/OLB, or Andre Brown the North Carolina St. RB.

    Yeah, first names would help for those of us who aren't draftniks.

    Mark is wheeling and dealing and he wants the OTHER Brown.

    Here's a tidbit on Everette Brown from an article on top Florida prospects in the Miami Herlad, citing Russ Lande at the Sporting News:

    Ranking the state's top NFL draft prospects - FSU - MiamiHerald.com

    1. FSU linebacker/end Everette Brown (top 15 picks). The Dolphins, picking 25th, have spent time with Brown (13.5 sacks in 2008), but he's expected to go sooner. "He will get in trouble against the run but can be a special pass-rusher," Lande said. "One scout told me, `I like the kid but I loved [ex-FSU first-round linebacker] Kamerion Wimbley and the Browns are disappointed in him. Wimbley looked like more of a sure thing than Brown, so how do I go to bat saying he's a top 10 pick? It makes me nervous.' ''

    I see Brown as an undersized 4-3 DE with nice moved. He might do well on a team such as Indy - Brown and Freeney would be a terrific combo. I don't see him as a 3-4 OLB for the Pats.

    I like it as long as you mean Everett Brown. Also, aren't there 4 picks day one? I would also add in a OG like Wood there.

    #75 Jersey

    And he's the one of the trio I would have a problem with.

    I don't know if we're talking about Donald Brown, Everette Brown, or freaking Jim Brown, but all 3 are pretty good.

    FWIW--I really think that some of the people who were sold on Darius Butler for BB at #23 may be mis-guided by his likeness for Cody Brown--the OLB/DE hybrid that you're speaking of. I heard he gave him a 30-35 minute chalk talk, so I wouldn't be too shocked if we took him at #58 or #89, if still around. #47 is a possibility too, IDK.

    I would be happy with it. Not ecstatic, but happy.

    I think we'd have to move up to get Everett Brown, that's probably where one of his picks went

    I thought he meant Cody Brown at first.

    If you mean Everette Brown, I'm not so sure that's a good first day. You get one linebacker who's never played linebacker, one 3-4 DE who's never played 3-4 DE, and William Moore with four picks in the first 59.

    I apologize for such confusion. I really didn't think that there was any other Brown than Everrett who would qualify as our first round pick. As you indicate, I would expect to trade up using another day one pick to get EVERETTE Brown. I would get Gilbert and Moore with the remaining Day One picks.

    An alternative suggested by another poster is to use the same strategy to trade up for Jackson instead, secure an OLB with the next pick, and then Moore.

    The idea was to explore how we felt about getting three top players at DE, OLB and SS in Day One, even if we needed to trade up for one of the picks.

    As someone else pointed out, if Curry dropped to 7, we could add an 89 and get Curry. I would then still be able to add Gilbert and Moore.

    The OPEN question is whether any of these players are worth trading up for. I suspect they all are. However, I believe that Gilbert is a fine prospect in the 2nd.

    I knew what you meant, but couldn't resist yanking your chain. But apparently it wasn't entirely clear to everyone.

    Personally, of the Browns, I like Donald Brown the RB the best, followed by Everette Brown. Everette Brown is a bit like Clay Matthews for me - I like him as a player, I just don't see where he fits. I would be thrilled with Donald Brown at #34 if we didn't already have Maroney.
