Apparently, the Browns would do something stupid:
Now, in this scenario, does Bentley still get hurt? Cause the Browns would've signed an All-Pro center, then used a 1st round draft pick on a center? And even if LeCharles does get hurt, it's still dumb.Cleveland BrownsOriginal pick: Kamerion Wimbley, DE, Florida State
NICK MANGOLD , C, Ohio State
How many centers did the Browns go through this year after top shelf free-agent LeCharles Bentley went down in the first practice of training camp? Six? Sixteen? That would have made Mangold a perfect fit as a need pick.
You probably think I'm nuts; I keep yelling for the Browns to draft linemen and now I rip SI for suggesting the Brown draft a lineman. But even though Bentley went down, you don't draft a center in the first round.
Once 2007 rolls around, they're paying 2 centers big money. Do you then move Bentley to guard?
Why am I asking rhetorical questions about a revisionist scenario? Anyone?
