    I would've offered D. Murray and a 3rd for T. Richardson.

    So we have 3 or maybe 4?

    Good luck being right on first round RBs.

    I just don't think it's worth it.

    I understand that but that's not going to make me ignore elite RBs at the top of the draft. I'm not about to miss out on the next AP.

    The Colts obviously think Richardson is elite and can balance out their offense for a long time. If they're right, he's well worth that pick, IMO.

    Forgot him. I think Richardson will prove he belongs in that group. So that would be 5 of the top 10 RBs in the league being 1st round picks.

    cant say that i agree about trent being an elite RB
    he has been underwhelming when not injured behind a pretty darn good OL

    no way i give my rd 1 pick for him

    i think this is a better trade for the browns

    now, if trent turns it around then the colts would also have helped temselves, good for them

    Depends . I think if your in a position like the broncos it is easily worth it . They have a solid team all around and a 1st round RB could be the icing on the cake . For us however it's dumb with all our holes . BUT I would trade Murray and a 2nd for Trent without hesitation .

    I just don't think I would do that. If I'm wrong I could live with it.

    At the same time we're likely to draft a TE so maybe it would be more beneficial.

    I would. He has the physical abilities to be a top 5 back. He only needs to learn patience and be in the right scheme. Not sure about the latter here but I've seen enough of him to be a believer.

    The problem is we have Murray and would need to find a place for him to land. Guy can't stay on the field and isn't right for this scheme.

    If the Browns draft well, they will look like absolute geniuses.

    Two first rounders, two third rounders and two fourth rounders. They can absolutely anyone they want in this draft. They could potentially come away with four-five good to very good starters. This was a great trade for them.

    Agreed but just as good if not better for the Colts. They now have a guy who could average 4.5 YPC with a QB that can actually scare defenses and an O-Line that can block. I'd be willing to bet someone that trent rushes for over 1000 THIS YEAR.

    I don't think it's a bad trade for the Colts. I just think it was a little bit of a reach. Trent Richardson isn't a bad tail back. I don't think he is particularly special though. It's hard to judge until we find out where that pick is. If that pick winds up being top-15, which it very well could, I think the Colts really regret it.

    I think it was a good trade and a ballsy move by the Browns.

    no way. It's a good deal for The Browns. If I am reading between the lines, they may be acquiring some resources to move up in 2014 draft to grab Johnny Football.

    They would NOT pick JM. They are eying Bridgewater as they should.

    Im aware, but it represents another first round pick. The second first round pick is a huge commodity when moving around in the draft, as we have seen in recent years. It means they could potentially move up in the first and grab Bridgewater while still having another pick in the first round. That second pick could be used to give him a weapon on the outside. If they pull that off, they will have successfully re-tooled their offense and infused it with explosive young talent. That could have a dramatic effect not only in the win/loss column but in putting butts in seats.

    Obviously it represents a lot of "ifs" but that's what the draft is all about anyway. The Browns have been so poor for so long, a move like this was almost a necessity. They needed to show the culture is changing. They are willing to take risks in order to put a competitive team on the field. Now, if they can just capitalize on all those picks. That is potentially the biggest "if" facing that team now.
