    You guys have some pretty good points. If what the Vikings are doing is trying to get TB, Cleveland, or St Louis to move up, theyre crazy. I think you guys are right, in the end they probably will end up taking Kalil.

    I think most people took issue with the idea that Cleveland would use the #4 pick on a RT when it can easily be addressed later. Especially when Kalil projects as a dominant LT, who would most likely be very unhappy in Cleveland since LTs are paid much better, and given more recognition than RTs, and he'd have no chance at being a LT there. Plus it's just a misallocation of talent, taking a guy who is tops at his position with no intent to play him at his position. Not that it would stop the Browns, but I'm sure it would cross their minds, plus the fact he probably wants to play LT in the NFL.

    If Kalil gets past the Vikings, I would expect a team to trade up for him, or he'd drop to the Rams. I don't think Cleveland or Tampa Bay would take him.

    I hope not, but I still think Cleveland takes WR Blackmon at #4.

    The Browns know they can get a really good RB later in round two. They wouldn't even have to use the 22nd pick on RB. The devaluation of the RB position can get a good back in the second round. Most sports web sites can't even decide whyo is the second best RB. David Wilson, Doug Martin or Lamar Miller

    I'll take any of the elete six. Snead may take DT Fletcher Cox.

    Just my two cents.
