Anyways, starting with the Cavaliers, who are currently sitting at 12th in the Eastern Conference with a record of 17-33. They've lost 11 of their last 12 games and currently aren't looking to improve anytime soon with last years number one draft pick Kyrie Irving being injured. Their isn't much to make out of the current situation with the Cavs but hopefully this losing can lead to a decent draft pick? Possibly even another number 1? We can only hope. While currently rebuilding the Cavaliers must look to improve at all areas except point guard and most likely will do so through the draft. As time gets closer to the draft I will post my pre draft Cavaliers selections. (The Cavaliers currently hold a top ten lottery pick, a second first round lottery pick, and two second round lottery picks.)
Now for the Cleveland Browns. The NFL season is currently over and the browns finished just 5-11 and this season leaves Cleveland fans with the same taste of failure they have every off season as the Browns front office continues to promote "patience". In the course of this off season the Browns have managed to lose Peyton Hillis and as usual did not pick up any game changing free agents. So as Browns fans we look to the Draft which is April 26. Because off their horrific season the Browns currently hold the number 4 pick and also the number 22 pick in the first round. The Browns must draft a game changer. They can't afford not to get help for quarterback Colt McCoy. With that being said, my first choice at the number 4 pick is Trent Richardson - Running back from Alabama State. Richardson will be an instant play maker for the Browns and will provide that running offense that they've needed for years. Richardson also brings the ability to take pressure off of McCoy (A must need). Richardson is a pure force and can knock down about any person in his way. Performing greatly during the Draft Combine has helped raise Richardson stock thus making it important to draft him at number 4. It is time for a change in Cleveland and Richardson will be the next step in that direction. Anyways, that's enough for today's Cleveland blog. Moar to come in the offdays. Also, for all you doubters of Trent Richardson and whom may even be considering Ryan Tannehill at the number 4 position, here's a highlight video of Richardson. Check it out and tell me you still want Tannehill.
