The latest speculation on the national level has the Browns falling out of love with Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson and in love with the idea of selecting a quarterback, with LSU's JaMarcus Russell being their top choice and Notre Dame's Brady Quinn second.

1. I think a week from today there's a very good chance that one of the big stories in the NFL will be rampant speculation (now there's a change from everything in the world of pro football) that Cleveland wants to trade up from No. 3 to No. 1 to draft Russell. G.M. Phil Savage has known Russell since his freshman year in high school in Mobile, Ala., and loves the kid. I'm told that Savage has not been ordered by owner Randy Lerner to take a quarterback.

I still see the these 3 players going 1-2-3, CJ, JT & Russell, but in what order?

If the Browns trade up with Oakland and takes Russell, we all know that Oaklands penciled in for CJ..

Should we really consider leapfrogging the Radiers and trading with the Lions? If they want Joe Thomas, they will still land him at 4, theres no way Oakland would take Thomas at 3 if Calvin is gone. The resigned Barry Sims who won his LT job back and Gallery is moving back to RT, So I dont see the Raiders taking an OL in rd 1.. in rd 2 they will, but not here

So if the Browns trade up with Oakland, do we make a bold attempt to trade up with the Lions? Would you give up oir 2nd rd pick to move up 2 slots and get the best player in this draft? We still have Indy's 2nd and our early 3rd, we'll still come out with 3 players after our 3rd pick

Oakland and Cleveland cant throw a Rivers/Manning deal in this, whereas Raiders take Russell 1 and hope CJ falls to #3 and a trade is then made.

Regardless, JaMarcus Russell will go #1, if to the Raiders or Browns

We gotta get a way to move up to #2

No thanks, especially if Joe Thomas is going to be available at #4 (as in your scenario).

The player that we can draft with our second round pick is not worth giving up to secure CJ.  WR just isnt that big of a need.

that presumes that the lions don't take Joe Thomas.  If that happens, the BPA are Quinn and Peterson, which is as bad a scenario as we can wind up in in terms of an impact pick. We'll probably scramble to trade down and then call gaines adams 20 seconds before our time is up.

If Joe Thomas falls to us, then we take him.  Truthfully, LT is a MUCH bigger need then WR.  The only reason we assume CJ is the pick, is because we all assume that Thomas will be off the board.

The Bucs will just need to get their BPA. Too many needs to trade up, and no teams behind us that will want to get Peterson or Quinn.

I would not be surprised to see us take Quinn, only to trade him later to a team like Miami or Houston after telling them who to draft for the trade when it's their turn (Okoye, Carriker, Adams, Anderson, maybe even a guy like Brown or any other 2nd tier guy) plus what ever worked out compensation.
