Default Draft should help Browns blow by Steelers

It seems like yesterday when Mike Tomlin was laughing about free agency as if it was better than crying.

Someone in Berea mentioned T.J. Ward and Alex Mack to Tomlin, prompting him to say, “I don’t want to talk about my free agents, let alone yours.”

The face of the Steelers has been changing for a while now. And, while the 2013 team rallied to an 8-8 finish, the latest heavy turnover serves to remind of the problems that caused the season to be gone with a 2-6 start (including losses to the Titans, Vikings and Raiders).

If the Browns’ new regime is worth its salt, it has a good chance to pass the 2014 Steelers.

As free agency winds down, Tomlin has lost:

• Linebacker LaMarr Woodley to the Raiders

His recent career fade is slightly reminiscent to that of his former Michigan teammate, Braylon Edwards.

• Defensive lineman Ziggy Hood to the Jaguars

He was a Round 1 pick the same year as Alex Mack

• Safety Ryan Clark to the Redskins.

The last time he didn’t go into a Steelers season as a starter was 2005.

• Wideout Emmanuel Sanders to the Broncos

67 catches for 740 yards, six TDs in 2013

• Wideout Jerricho Cotchery to the Panthers

46 catches for 602 yards, 10 TDs in 2013

• Running back Jonathan Dwyer to the Cardinals

4.3 yards a carry in spot duty the last three years

• Defensive lineman Al Woods to the Titans

Played in every game last year as a backup in a rotation

• Tight end David Johnson to the Chargers

Four-year Pittsburgher who started 16 games in 2011

• Defensive end Brett Keisel, a free agent who says he wants to play two more years, is on the market. He represents the erosion of stability in the franchise, having played for Pittsburgh since the year the Browns reached the playoffs.

• • •

The Steelers signed:

• Running back LaGarrette Blount from the Patriots

• Safety Mike Mitchell from the Panthers

• Wideout Lance Moore from the Saints

• Linebacker Arthur Moats from the Bills

• Cornerback Brice McCain from the Texans

• Nose tackle Cam Thomas from the Chargers

• • •

They retained:

• Linebacker Jason Worilds, via the transition tag ($9.7 million for 2014)

• Safety Will Allen

• Tight end Michael Palmer

• Offensive lineman Guy Whimper

• Offensive lineman Cody Wallace

• Long snapper Greg Warren

• • •

The Browns should gain ground on the Steelers in the draft.

Cleveland’s top four picks are at No. 4, No. 26, No. 35 and No. 71.

Pittsburgh’s top four picks are at No. 15, No. 46, No. 97 and No. 118.

The Browns’ fifth pick, a No. 83 obtained from Pittsburgh, is higher than the Steeler’s third pick. Cleveland’s sixth pick, at No. 106, is higher than Pittsburgh’s fourth pick.

Ray Farmer has a chance to do some serious damage.

Default Re: Draft should help Browns blow by Steelers

I love that this guy names the draft as the reason the Browns will "blow by" the Steelers because of the higher picks......................................The Browns have been picking higher than the Steelers for the better part of 45 years running, and they still haven't gotten past them!



Ohhhhhhhhhh those Brownie fans!

The Browns have had higher picks than the Steelers for a long time now. Where exactly has that gotten them?

The Browns were going to "blow by" the Steelers when they had Derek Anderson too and when they got Brady Quinn and Joe Thomas in the same draft too but they just continued to blow.Maybe one day the Browns will get their shit together but this guy's logic is stupid.

Remember back in 2008 when everybody was picking the Browns to win the AFC North? They finished 4-12 that season, and the Steelers won the Super Bowl.

This should be in the "What's making you laugh?" thread down in the Locker Room.

Living in Canton Ohio and seeing my hometown newspaper make such a bold proclamation is no surprise. It epitomizes the Browns fans' attitudes in the area. They are bold and brash in the off season. But usually by week 4 they are back to " wait till next year "

Kevin Costner must be making the picks for them this go 'round.

it wouldn't hurt the brownies to auction off their draft selecting to people outside the organization.
