Re: Browns | Quarterback battle remains open
That's assuming Ben survives the onslaught of 2004.
If we had Ben, would we have brought in Droughns?
Bryant and Northcutt are hardly the kinds of WR's that put fear into D-coordinator's hearts.
Fained was OK (at best). Colemand Andruzzi and Shelton were serviceable at best. Tucker was pretty decent. That's about it.
There's so much more to it than just simply trading out players drafted. Let's say we drafted Ben in 2004. Would that have made us a better team in 2004? By your estimation, that would have been a resounding yes.
If so, would have been able to get Edwards? That would be a no. Our improved draft position would have decreased our chances of getting another WR. Instead of getting Edwards...we would have been left with Troy Williamson or Mike Williams...unless you think they would have taken a chance on Matt Jones/Mark Clayton instead.
If you take the "U" out of "STUD", you get STD. I'm just saying.
