Maybe this Savage guy really knows what he's doing. I love the two sixth round picks. The first was RB Lawrence Vickers from Colorado. I suspect they picked him to be a special teams player, but he's a nice runner and has pretty good hands out of the backfield. If you've seen him play, you appreciate that he's not shy about taking or giving a hit. I like that.

The second pick, which is the one the Browns recieved from the Ravens in the Ngata swap, was NT Babatunde Oshinowo from Stanford. I think he's a guy who can be a really good pro. As far as I can tell from watching him a few times and reading a lot about him, he has the physical tools to be an effective NT. He just has to learn how to hold his position and grind up the offensive line.

So, the first round trade ended up being Haloti Ngata for Kamerion Wimbley and Babatunde Oshinowo. We'll see.

There had been some noise that the Browns were going to give up a 5th to Detroit for Joey Harrington, but that never materialized.

I'm very surprised Oshinowo was available that late. I saw him play against Notre Dame, and they simply could not block him.
