Here are the Cleveland Browns' first five draft picks (in orange) and the Buckeye players (in scarlet) that the Browns could have taken instead:

Draft ChoiceRoundPick #
WR Corey Coleman (Baylor)115
OT Taylor Decker (Ohio State)116
DE Emmanuel Ogbah (Oklahoma State)232
WR Michael Thomas (Ohio State)247
DE Carl Nassib (Penn State)365
DT Adolphus Washington (Ohio State)380
OT Shon Coleman (Auburn)376
WR Braxton Miller (Ohio State)385
QB Cody Kessler (Southern Cal)393
TE Nick Vannett (Ohio State)394
Would the Browns have been better off simply drafting Buckeyes? Vote now!
Looks like it to me... though a bit heavy with 2 WRs and 1 TE with 1 OL and 1 DL.
Anyway, I've been wondering if Corey is really any better than the guy drafted 85 overall. The few times I watched Baylor this year I didn't pay a lot of attention to names... but everyone makes it sound like he needs to RElearn the position because he's the product of a system. And a lot of his value will come as a gadget player.
That sounds a lot like Braxton -- except I'd rather a guy that's learning fresh than somebody whose been doing it "wrong" for years and needs to relearn it the right way. And for gadget plays... I'd take Braxton every day of the week, esp with the assumption that eventually he'd be good for an RPO trick play.

As with most things Browns related, you can't win this one.

Thomas, Miller and Vannett are worthless without a QB to throw it to them so you have to go with the guys the Browns did draft and we know how that turned out so... fucked either way.
