    After picking Justin Blackmon/WR at #4 the Browns jump at the chance to add Trent Richardson the only Blue Chip RB in the draft.

    #14 & #82 (1280 pts) Traded to Browns for #22 & #37 (1310 pts)

    14 - traded
    22 -* Mark Barron S/Alabama - Finally, a blue-chip Safety!
    37 - Bruce Irvin LB/West Virginia - Poor man's Aldon Smith? Ryan will find a way to get both Bruce's after opposing QB's.
    45 - Peter Konz C/Wisconsin - If he's gone, we trade down a bit for Brewster C/Ohio State.
    82 - traded
    113 - Nate Potter OT/Boise State - Versatile Swing Tackle with good pass protection skills against a Doug Free meltdown.
    144 - Chris Owusu WR/Stanford - Provided he's healthy of course. Dynamic return specialist with speed to burn.
    175 - Tank Carder LB/TCU - Another smart, versatile player on defense.
    comp - Corey Harkey TE/UCLA - One of the best blocking TE's you're going to find.
    205 - Matt Conrath DE/Virginia - Tenacious 6'7" kid who blocks kicks.

    *Would take Fletcher Cox or DeCastro at #22 if available. In my simulations they went earlier.

    I see two guys who should be perennial pro-bowlers in Barron & Konz. Irvin should be a early contributor as a pass-rushing specialist. I toyed with the idea of a CB at 113 and 144, but the crop dried up early in the third.

    :shades: Anyways I managed to get 4 of my pet cats (Irvin,Carder,Conrath,Potter) in one mock!
