Cleveland Browns baby!

With who/what is available, I hope to god we run away from Geno Smith . Let Jacksonville take him, because I swear to god if we take Geno to replace Weeden... I will probably, finally, break down and cry while hugging my case of beer. I can't take anymore mediocre QB "competitions".

With that being said and with the absence of Sheldon Brown this year, I hope we take a top CB to compliment Joe Haden on the other side of the field.

Right now, I am hoping for Milliner out of Alabama or Xavier Rhodes out of FL State. Maybe Trufant out of Washington with a later pick in the draft if he's available and the price is right for our #6 overall.

I am obviously a Pats fan being from Boston.  I usually don't get too excited about the draft.  Except, I love to see that every year, a monkey throwing darts would be more accurate picking than Mel Kiper jr.  Pats always pick so late, it is just a guess who they think is good.

From what I've read, they seem most likely to go for WRs and DBs, the two positions they've been bad at drafting.

Denver - after the baltimore game I want new safety's and corners....A 70 yard touchdown with under a minute to play is inexcusable.

Browns fan. The pick is Dee Milliner. If he's gone by the time the Browns pick, they'll trade down with a team that needs one of the LTs out there (like Miami).

Keep in mind though, we may not go that far back... or even trade at all if they feel that Rhodes will be taken. I definitely think we're addressing CB like I said in my earlier post, but if they stray from CB and take QB or something completely insane... I for sure will flip out.

This just in...The Detroit Lions don't want a draft pick.

They'd just screw it up anyway.

Mike Lombardi as GM scares the crap out of me.

Probably true...

I'm hoping either Milliner or Fischer are still there at 5.

Huge Pats fan. It's really just guessing with how late in the draft they pick. They need corner help, a position they've been notoriously bad at judging skill at..

I just read the browns are trying to trade up and I'm not sure any of the tackles would be there for them to trade down. This is a tough draft to trade down because the tackles are the biggest chip and they may all be gone in the top 5. They might be able to make a deal with the Jets if the Jets want Millner bad enough and the Browns could take Rhodes.

Hate the Lions pick. Not sure how you take somebody at #5 with no college production to speak of.

Where do you guys think Geno Smith will fall to after the Bills took EJ Manuel? I can't see him being drafted in the first round now that the Bills passed on him.

    • I had a hard time doing the hip thing. What happened was starting the swing with the arms. Now I start my swing by literally attacking with my right shoulder to the ball and just ignoring the club, hands, arms. The effect is, the hip is pushed out of the way, it just has to anatomically, the right elbow comes in before the body and you get in a position where you can give it smack with the right side.  So yes for me it is a start with the upper body the thing that is said to be a nono.  Its really just an approach from the other side to clear the hips. Worth a try. I love it.
    • When you say with the right shoulder you mean staying connected with the hips though? Not rotating the uper body 1st right? I really struggle with the legs / knees doing what they're supposed to.
    • Ok. I think I made big progress now. I practised swinging with speed yesterday (without hitting the ball) and measuring club head speed. What I noticed is that rotating my hips and body faster did nothing for speed. But keeping my wrists and arms loose and do everything from there gave at least 10 mph more speed. Also I worked on my timing. I measured 80 with my 7 iron, and around 85 with my 5. Could not measure my driver at home though. Today at the range I hit the ball around 200-220 yards with my seven iron which is pretty insane compared to how far hit it before. I was doing this on hard practise mats though. So on the fairway this might be less. Also I used a lot of lag. So my 7 iron probably behaved more like 6 or even 5 iron. Ok. Now for the driver. I did some corrections to my hand position and stance. No slice anymore which of course makes the ball flight straighter and longer. I hit is pretty consistently 220 yards. Which is pretty interesting since this is NOT a lot of longer than I hit my 7 iron. I also tried my Hybrid (its like a 4 iron) but did only gain about 10m of distance and more much inconsistent shots. Now I took your advice and tried a 3 wood. Wow you were right. I hit the ball 240 yards.  Whats is all means to me that I could probably hit the driver 250 yards or more but at the moment I still have a swing problem with this. I should mention that I use a very cheap driver from a complete Wilson set (whole set around $300). Maybe my timing with arms and wirst are just wrong with the driver.  Could also be the driver itself. But I doubt it since I hit the 3 wood from the same Wilson set much longer it seems.
    • do the hipslide by attacking with right shoulder, some find it easier. Try it it also presses the hip away just passively. 
    • Hopefully won't get into trouble for bumping an older thread but this is awesome. I'm working on hipslide, infact I'm obsessed with hipslide. I'm a s&t player so the hipslide is key part of the process for me at the moment. Any of you high HC players onto any feelings that help you get this down?  Finding it so hard to nail. I'm a feeling player and the info the coach has given me all makes total sense but unless I can get a feeling to work towards its hit and miss.  Cheers.
