    McShay has the best of the 3.

    All indications are that the pass rushers are going early - that makes Lombardi's mock perhaps the most realistic. Personally I wouldn't mind any of those three with the first pick.

    Why does everyone have the Browns taking Weeden?


    If they aren't willing to use a pick on Tannehill, why would they trade up for Weeden?


    They could also trade down from #22 and take Weeden, instead of trading up to get him.

    I'd have to say that none of the three are that appealing, though I can make peace with Lombardi's.

    McShay: I don't see a difference-maker. Maybe Kendall Reyes can be one, who knows. Shea McClellin is way overrated, and Harrison Smith (as a ND fan)...well, lt's just say that covering anything moving is not his strength. Casey Hayward's a fine prospect.

    Banks: Courtney Upshaw - if you're on a defence that's as stacked as Alabama's was and you don't get double digit sacks, you're not elite. Hightower's better.

    Lombardi: I think Vinny Curry could be had later, but Lombardi predicts a run at DE/OLB (Perry at 18?). Most of my targets are gone by 27 in his mock.

    Lack of imagination. Everyone said the same thing about last year's pick at #33.

    At the same time, it would be a good haul for the Browns, on paper, to get their RB, WR and QB all in one round. If they wait to get Weeden in the 2nd round and someone else beats them to it they're S.O.L. McCoy is decent but they need to start developing their QB of the future now.

    How exactly are the Bronco's a QB-needy team? Wasn't there some big thing in the news about some veteren, future HOF QB signing with the Bronco's recently? I can see them picking up a back up/future replacement later in the draft. But certainly not trading multiple picks into the first round to get a 29 year old rookie.

    I think Upshaw was the best defender on the Alabama defense the past two seasons. However his arms are a bit short and at 279 pounds, where do we play him?
