    Browns hire Chudzinski to revamp struggling offense

    Chudzinski was Cleveland's tight ends coach in 2004 under Butch Davis. He coached San Diego's tight ends the past two seasons. Great move IMO, TE is where the talent lies on this team and bringing in a guy who has been credited with developing guys like Franks, Shockey, and Winslow is a step in thye right direction. I think it's important to realize Winslow's game changing potential and who better to do it than a former tight end who has spent the last two years coaching a guy like Antonio Gates. I think Cleveland will make some big moves in the off season this year to make this team better and this was a step in the right direction.

    The Browns seek to implement the C.H.U.D. offense.

    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Re: Browns hire Chudzinski to revamp struggling offense

    The Browns have talent. They will go along way to greatly improving their team when they improve their offensive line. Whether that can be addressed in the draft or via FA I don't know. But losing Bentley for the season really hurt.

    Here is Todd McShay's (ESPN) mock draft.....

    Much will change in the coming months, as underclassmen officially declare and players take part in postseason all-star games, individual workouts and the scouting combine, but here is our initial first-round mock for the 2007 NFL draft:

    x -- Still to be determined by coin flip
    y -- Still to be determined by playoffs
    + -- Underclassman

    1. Oakland Raiders (2-14)
    Projected pick: +JaMarcus Russell, QB, LSU
    Russell vs. Brady Quinn? Let the great debate begin. Most teams have Quinn ahead of Russell, but Raiders owner Al Davis could fall in love with Russell's size and deep arm.


    2. Detroit (3-13)
    Projected pick: Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame
    The Lions will be stoked if Quinn falls to them at No. 2. Wouldn't it be great, though, if Matt Millen takes another wide receiver (Calvin Johnson) with this pick?


    3t. x-Cleveland (4-12)
    Projected pick: +Alan Branch, DT, Michigan
    The Browns want Russell with this pick, but they'll settle for a 330-pound playmaker to help solidify Romeo Crennel's three-man defensive front.


    3t. x-Tampa Bay (4-12)
    Projected pick: +Calvin Johnson, WR, Georgia Tech
    The Bucs have other more pressing needs, but coach Jon Gruden can't pass on the draft's most dynamic offensive weapon.


    5. Arizona (5-11)
    Projected pick: Joe Thomas, OT, Wisconsin
    As usual, the Cardinals are a prime candidate to trade down. They should get lots of bidders if Thomas -- the only elite offensive lineman in this class -- is still available.


    6. Washington (5-11)
    Projected pick: Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson
    Adams is a no-brainer for a Redskins defense that set a team record for the fewest sacks in a season (19) in 2006.


    7. Minnesota (6-10)
    Projected pick: +Jamaal Anderson, DE, Arkansas
    It's hard to believe the Vikings still need defensive end help, but Erasmus James suffered a season-ending injury in the opener and Kenechi Udeze failed to notch a sack. Anderson is the complete package physically and he should capitalize on 13.5 sacks as a junior in 2006.


    8. Houston (6-10)
    Projected pick: +Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma
    Peterson is expected to make his decision to bolt for the NFL in the next few days. Drafting Peterson here would help to overshadow the Texans' colossal mistake of passing on Reggie Bush with the top overall pick last year.


    9. Miami (6-10)
    Projected pick: Leon Hall, CB, Michigan
    The Dolphins could consider QB Brian Brohm with this pick, but they also could go the free-agency route in order to get short-term relief. Hall would be a good value here and would help upgrade a patchwork secondary.


    10. Atlanta (7-9)
    Projected pick: LaRon Landry, S, LSU
    Landry is a ball-hawk free safety who would instantly upgrade the athleticism of the Falcons secondary.


    11. San Francisco (7-9)
    Projected pick: +Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU
    Dorsey might not fall this far, but the 49ers certainly wouldn't protest such a scenario. Dorsey is a disruptive force as a one-gap penetrating interior lineman.


    12. Buffalo (7-9)
    Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville
    Projected pick: The Bills have more pressing needs, including cornerback and middle linebacker. However, Okoye is a fast-rising 19-year-old with great potential.


    13. St. Louis (8-8)
    Projected pick: Adam Carriker, DE, Nebraska
    Carriker, a quick and powerful 290-pound defensive end, could be a good complement opposite DE Leonard Little.


    14. Carolina (8-8)
    Projected pick: +Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
    The Panthers need help at middle linebacker, left tackle, safety and tight end, but it also might be time to address life after QB Jake Delhomme. If Brohm elects to leave school early, he should be taken somewhere between picks No. 10 and 20.


    15. Pittsburgh (8-8)
    Projected pick: Quentin Moses, DE/OLB, Georgia
    Moses' stock is dropping after a subpar senior year, but it will spike once he works out at the combine next month.


    16. Green Bay (8-8)
    Projected pick: +Marshawn Lynch, RB, Cal
    QB Brett Favre could help maximize Lynch's explosiveness and versatility if they're working in the same backfield in 2007.


    17. Jacksonville (8-8)
    Projected pick: +Ted Ginn Jr., WR/RS, Ohio State
    Ginn Jr. has a tough decision to make after injuring his ankle in the first quarter of the BCS title game. Assuming he turns pro, the Jaguars could use his speed. Despite spending first-round picks on the position in 2004 (Reggie Williams) and 2005 (Matt Jones), no Jaguar finished in the NFL's top 50 in catches.


    18. Cincinnati (8-8)
    Projected pick: Tank Tyler, DT, N.C. State
    Tyler had a monster season as a senior, and his combination of power and quickness would help upgrade the Bengals' ailing defensive front.


    19. Tennessee (8-8)
    Projected pick: +Dwayne Jarrett, WR, USC
    Jarrett is a dynamic playmaker with extraordinary hand-eye coordination, but he might not run well enough to land a spot in the top 15. However, the former Trojans receiver could make quite a team with the former Longhorns quarterback (Vince Young) in Tennessee.


    20. N.Y. Giants (8-8)
    Projected pick: +Darrelle Revis, CB, Pittsburgh
    The Giants must upgrade their cover-corner situation, and Revis displays the athleticism and ball skills to fit their needs. Revis will compete for the second cornerback taken behind Hall in this year's class.


    21. Denver (9-7)
    Projected pick: Daymeion Hughes, CB, Cal
    The tragic passing of Darrent Williams will force the Broncos to re-evaluate their personnel needs this offseason.


    22. Dallas (9-7)
    Projected pick: +Reggie Nelson, S, Florida
    Nelson, a speedy center fielder with excellent ball skills, would provide an ideal complement next to hard-hitting S Roy Williams.


    23. Kansas City (9-7)
    Projected pick: +Sidney Rice, WR, South Carolina
    Rice's draft stock could fluctuate greatly depending on his postseason workouts. Assuming he grades out as a late first-round prospect, the Chiefs would welcome his pass-catching services on the perimeter.


    24. y-New England (from Seattle)
    Projected pick: +Jarvis Moss, DE/OLB, Florida
    Moss is an undersized pass-rushing end who would fit well as an outside linebacker in the Patriots' 3-4 defensive scheme. Plus, Bill Belichick obviously has a thing for Gators players.


    25. y-N.Y. Jets (10-6)
    Projected pick: Kenny Irons, RB, Auburn
    Irons' draft stock is plummeting after a disappointing senior campaign. However, don't be surprised if he works his way back into the first round by running well and checking out physically at next month's combine. The Jets might be desperate enough to take a gamble.


    26. y-New Orleans (10-6)
    Projected pick: Marcus McCauley, CB, Fresno State
    The Saints need lots of help on defense, and selecting McCauley would be a step in the right direction. McCauley is raw but he's also a 6-foot-1 cornerback with 4.3-second speed in the 40-yard dash.


    27. y-Philadelphia (10-6)
    Projected pick: +Lawrence Timmons, OLB, Florida State
    Timmons is unpolished, but he's a big hitter with great speed for his size.

    28. y-New England (12-4)
    Projected pick: Jeff Samardzija, WR, Notre Dame
    Samardzija could easily slip out of the first round due to his desire to play both baseball (Cubs) and football professionally. The Patriots should be "in the know" thanks to their old buddy Charlie Weis.


    29. y-Indianapolis (12-4)
    Projected pick: Patrick Willis, ILB, Ole Miss
    The Colts' run defense was abysmal during the regular season, so drafting a one-man wrecking crew like Willis makes a lot of sense with this pick. Willis notched 265 tackles during his final three seasons at Ole Miss.


    30. y-Chicago (13-3)
    Projected pick: Levi Brown, OT, Penn State
    Brown could slip after a disappointing senior season, but it's still tough to find a tackle with his combination of size and agility.


    31. y-Baltimore (13-3)
    Projected pick: LaMarr Woodley, DE/OLB, Michigan
    The Ravens could use a youth influx at linebacker, and Woodley would be a good fit thanks to his experience playing in a similar hybrid 3-4/4-3 defensive scheme at Michigan.


    32. y-San Diego (14-2)
    Projected pick: Dwayne Bowe, WR, LSU
    A young weapon like Bowe at wide receiver could take an already-potent Chargers offense to the next level.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    I would be upset with Branch at 3, not because I hate Michigan, but The only sure fire way to build a good Oline is through the draft. And god only knows we need Oline help. I'd go with all Oline day one, screw it. Look what it did for the Jets....(ok so they had two first rounders, and both were Oline, but I think Pennington would agree it was a good move)

    Thats probably the newest mock out there right now, most of the draft "experts" will wait until after the playoff and cointoss stuff to settle out the actual draft spots. Thats why when I did mine on another thread I stopped with # 10 leaving only the Cleveland Tampa cointoss up in the air.
