I'm OK with this
A Troy Smith second round selection would not be a bad thing. If the Browns do draft Smith in the second round, I really hope that they would have selected Joe Thomas in round 1. A Thomas- Smith combo isn't a bad first day.
Now, if they can't get Thomas and "settle" for Adrian Peterson and create a Peterson-Smith combo, well... my feelings will be mixed. On one hand you'll have two sexy picks and you'd create an offense around the following players: Troy Smith, Adrian Peterson, Braylon Edwards, Kellen Winslow Jr and Joe Jurevicius/Josh Cribbs. I can't really complain about that- that's a pretty stacked lineup.
The flip side here is that, once again, the Browns would have neglected the line(s) in favor for skill position players. They need young talent on that line. Plus, it doesn't really matter who's in the backfield if the line doesn't block (lets not forget the fact that a few times last year Frye was tackled while handing the ball off. That's terrible).
