The Browns probably hate the idea of moving up 2 spots and using their first or 2nd round pick to do it. Maybe they are gambling that the cost for the Redskins to move up is too high. The Vikings may not take a QB at 3 so wham they get RG without a trade. The Rams gotta take Blackmon. If worst comes to worst they get Blackmon if the Redskins to move up and still have a first to figure out the QB spot... Moving up 2 spots that early in the draft is a tough thing to do. Because there is a lot of big talent around and a unproven QB for the 4th pick plus another possible first is expensive when you can get a guy like Blackmon just staying put.
Who cares? We're getting Peyton.
Spark doesn't =winning, we forget that winning is the bottom line
Blackmon is Ok but is he any better than let's say The Beast Brandon Marshall. Y'all think that these rookies are going to come and makes an instant impact like Cam Newton.
people. Why should Cleveland jump up two spots and give away those picks when they know St louis and Minny doesnt want them? Holmgren is not really eyeing RG3. Shurmer maybe but Holmgren is different. They would want RG3 at #4. Otherwise, they are looking elsewhere. They are the team with many holes to fill. Washington is worse IMO or about the same. So if they go up and take #2 they sold themselves again!!!! They will leave their team in a big hole in other areas. OL for one.
If Cleveland does not buy it, why should Washington? Washington would want to buy Minny's pick right after St louis is sale less. Why would St louis want to trade down to #6 when eyeing kalil, Claiborne, and Blackmon? Maybe they settle for Reiff. But make no mistake. St louis wants Clevelands picks. Cleveland looks more and more like they are hesitating.
smokescreen to get miami or washington to bite on a tradeup and for them to get more picks. Once again whatever trades are gonna happen really need to happen before FA period otherwise manning and flynn could be in Wash and Miami, then who would be the sucker for trading with?

I dont think its a smoke screen at all. If another team makes a trade with St. Louis to draft Robert Griffin, I think its possible that Cleveland drafts Tannehill. They could very well go with whatever QB is available at #4 instead of giving up multiple 1st round picks.
