    I think if the Browns keep the 4th pick (they could trade for more), they will either go Richardson or Tannehill, with Blackmon being a 3rd option. They have to score points in this conference.

    Hill could make sense for the Steelers. I do however think its more likely they try to find a guy they like in rounds 2-5 who has upside (kinda like they did with Wallace, Sanders and Brown) and address other needs with that first pick. I guess they could go WR if the right guy is there but based on their past history and the amount of depth they need to address with this draft, I would bet against them taking the WR in round 1 at least.

    Oh yea and I have faith the Browns will screw this completely up and take a player not named Richardson or Claibourne.

    Agreed, and tbh Hill makes a lot of sense for the Steelers, I know that they are likely to lose Wallace in 2013, but having a year trying to defend them both going deep could be daunting for us. And then your not losing much when Wallace leaves depending on how Hill develops, especially when you have Sanders and Brown on the team still.

    Me too man.

    I know Ozzie doesn't like giving up draft picks, but they're always going to be looking at guys who will likely make better RT's instead of LT's until they are picking in the top 15 and that would mean a mediocre/losing season, which you certainly don't want either.

    Would you class Oher in the same boat as say a Jason Smith? And by that boat, I mean floating garbage

    If I really broke it down...like 1.0-1.9, etc etc etc, I would put Jason Smith at like 2.0 and Oher at 2.5. The difference is Oher is tough and very durable. Jason Smith is a ninny. I wish Oher would have been moved to guard a few years ago because I truly 100% feel in my heart of hearts that he would make a hell of a guard.

    Thanks Kyle!

    I actually think that this is a good draft to try and trade up for Jon Martin or Riley Reiff. I know it would cost a lot, but IMO it's worth the risk because if one of those two is even an average to slightly above average at left tackle, then it's worth it in the long run.
