The NFL draft starts tonight. The Browns pick sixth. My stomach churns at the thought of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell advancing to the podium to announce the Browns decision.
Since the Browns have come back into the league, the draft has been the source of incredible failure and angst for Browns fans. Because the Browns has been so bad for so long, they’ve had lots of chances to select the high-ranking talent at the beginning of the first round. However, rather than picking the studs who come in and dominate, our beloved team has picked players who are head cases, players who apparently are as brittle as fine china, players who seem snake-bitten. Few of the first-round choices even remain on the Browns roster.
So, tonight I will grit my teeth — and hope that instead of drafting another disaster, the Browns just make a trade and stock up on whatever help they can get.
