Mary Kay Cabot, of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, reports the Cleveland Browns are impressed with Michigan WR Braylon Edwards, who is ranked among the top draft prospects this year. "Of course, Braylon is getting a lot of attention from the national media as far as potentially being with the Browns (at the No. 3 overall pick)," said general manager Phil Savage. "He had a great senior year. I happened to be at the Michigan State game where he had one of his marquee moments. He can get downfield and score touchdowns. He had a fabulous career at Michigan." Savage said Edwards is rated above USC WR Mike Williams on the team's draft board. "Braylon has the proven track record, he's got the big-school pedigree and he's produced in big games," Savage said.
it looks more and more like CLE, if they stay at #3, will be taking braylon edwards even though WR is by far not their biggest need.
after months of speculation that CLE would take a QB, phil savage throws everyone a curve with the edwards rumors.
we'll see on saturday at any rate...
