The Browns have more needs than they do picks. Not being able to move down from the third spot didn't exactly help things much either. None of the Defensive players warranted a pick as high as 3 in my book and I figure with the Baltimore influences the new drafts strategy was Best Player Available regardless of position. As much as they need impact players they also need quality depth as well. Quality over quantity was the mindest of this draft.
Mike Williams WR USC
Great size...Very good hands...A terror in the red zone...Has a nose for the end zone...Will out-leap and out-muscle any cornerback...Put up some huge numbers and was the star on a National Championship team.
Lacks excellent pure speed...Only played two years of college football...Needs to refine his overall game...Must master the nuances of the position...Will have to shake off the rust after not playing in 2004.
Talent like this don't come around every year. The combination of Williams, Bryant, and Winslow could cause some serious problems for opposing D's especially if the running game develops with Suggs and Droughns
Good natural athletic ability...Has good speed and quickness...Brings a lot of toughness to the position...Good tackler...Moves and changes direction well...Still improving and has a lot of potential.
Has had some off the field trouble as recently as the '04 season when he was suspended early on...Has only average size...Doesn't have a lot of experience...Raw and far from a finished product.
Has a lot of potential and has played well...Still has a lot of question marks surrounding him...Had a rough upbringing with both of his parents passing away and came out early to support his family.
This one wasn't my pick and wasn't even on my board at the time. My first choice was actually Brodney Poole, followed By Darryl Blackstock, Kevin Burnett, and finally Channing Crowder.
For whatever reason I didn't get my picks.
Has excellent size...Has a big league arm and can make all the throws...Top natural athletic ability...Can run and scramble a little...Solid character and a hard worker...Still has a lot of upside and potential and may have turned the corner in 2004.
Has been very inconsistent throughout his career...Doesn't read defenses well...Holds onto the ball too long and doesn't have a great feel for the pass rush...Makes poor decisions...Has to work on his technique and mechanics...Was aided by a tremendous running attack and great defense.
: Highly touted recruit who finally began living up to his potential as a senior after a very up and down career...Was a one year wonder but has all the physical tools and will likely be among the top handful of signal callers drafted...Boom or bust type of prospect.
This was the QB I had my eye on the whole draft. Feeling Campbell was just as good and had just as much upside as the top 2 QB's he was an excellent pick at 67

That was certainly a mouth full. What it does is shows exactly why Campbell might not be the top QB in this draft overall but might just be the best fit for the Cleveland Browns and this team’s future.http://mb8.scout.com/bbrownsinsider]
Jonathan Goddard DE Marshall
: Highly productive and one of the top sack artists in the country as a senior...Very athletic...Has good speed and a burst to close on the quarterback...Has a strong upper body...Very quick off the line...Instinctive.
Vastly undersized, both in terms of height as well as weight...Will be a liability against the run...Will likely only be a situational pass rusher in the pro ranks.
Really put himself on the map with an outstanding senior campaign...Won't be a high draft pick but the NFL is always looking for pass rushers which will get him more than a look...Could project to OLB in the NFL, especially in a 3-4 defensive scheme.
Although it was against "lesser" competition Goddard was still tops in the NCAA last year in sacks with 16. First in Sacks, 2nd in Forced fumbles and second in tackles for loss last season alone.
TACKLES FOR LOSS
1 interception, 3 fumbles recovered, 2 touchdowns, 5 pass breakups, 1 punt block
I think he's be a perfect fit for a 3-4 OLB and IMHO a steal in the 4th
