Mayock on what Browns could do..

KingBlue : 3/7/2018 5:16 pm
I was listening to Mayock on the Jim Rome show this afternoon and he mentioned an intriguing strategy for the Browns. I thought it was interesting and wondered what others think about possible strategy. Mayock offered the following:
#1 Barkley
#4 Nelson
With plenty of cap room, go after Nick Foles. Mayock thinks the Browns defense is pretty good and with the three additions above plus the rest of their draft they would be much, much improved.

Thoughts? I don't hate it.
smarter for Browns to draft a QB  
Andy in Boston : 3/7/2018 5:20 pm : link
both financially...and long term.

To pay through the moon for Foles is more of a risk than drafting Darnold. Why spend the $$ like that if you don't really have to?
Not smart at all

Philly bias
I bet they

get McCarron and not Foles. I think they could go that route but more likely Barkley and Nelson but they may want to look for a playmaker on their defense. A CB like Ward or a guy like Chubb at DE (though a trade up ahead of the Colts would be needed).

They already have Kiser, who really needs to sit and watch for another year. Two high rd QB picks provides little in the win column next year. A VET QB to mentor Kiser and get some wins would be big.
Foles

Sure I could see the Browns trading for Foles
They would give up one of their second round picks for him

Then after they give him a big contact the Browns release him and the Eagles pick him up
My first thought when hearing this was...  
KingBlue : 3/7/2018 5:28 pm : link
They get the two best players in the draft. Not a bad strategy!
Foles sucks  
giants#1 : 3/7/2018 5:29 pm : link
a handful of games this year notwithstanding.

The Browns should try and entice the Giants to make a deal and then take:

1 - Barkley
2 - preferred QB

they have plenty of extra picks to move from #4 to #2 and can probably do it while still retaining some picks in rds 2-3 this year.

I am a bit of a closet Kiser fan myself. He shows flashes...Needs to mature, but there is some interesting skills there...

But HueJax is really close and fond of McCarron from their Cincy days...
Does mayock know  
YAJ2112 : 3/7/2018 5:33 pm : link
They would have to trade for Foles before they can sign him?
Why would they take Nelson over a QB?  
Jay on the Island : 3/7/2018 5:36 pm : link
They have Zeitler and Bitonio at guard locked up long term.
If the Giants were in the ....  
Mike From Brielle : 3/7/2018 5:38 pm : link
Browns shoes that would be what I would do but I hoped no one would think of it. I wonder how biased Mayock is toward Philly? Philly is kissing the edge of the cap and there probably going to have to let many of the Key pieces from last year go in free agency. He seems not to want the Giants to get Barkley, just wondering.
Browns have so many options  
GFAN52 : 3/7/2018 5:38 pm : link
Barkley or their top QB at 1, and then that 4th with potentially Nelson, Chubb kit Fitzpatrick. They can even package their high second picks to move back into the 1st round.
In That Scenario  
Trainmaster : 3/7/2018 5:41 pm : link
The Browns trade down for someone who wants a QB at #4 and take Nelson later.
I believe Foles is under contract for 2018  
JonC : 3/7/2018 5:43 pm : link
and Browns shouldn't trade for him, just sign McCarron if they believe in him.

With Hue Jackson’s connection signing AJ seems like a done deal.
Lets see if they sign McCarron  
Rflairr : 3/7/2018 5:54 pm : link
and what kind of contract they give him.
That would  
ryanmkeane : 3/7/2018 5:56 pm : link
be the most Cleveland thing ever. Flash forward to 2023 and they are still looking for a QB...
Until  
ryanmkeane : 3/7/2018 5:57 pm : link
Jackson is no longer the coach, Browns are going nowhere
I doubt Foles is going anywhere  
mrvax : 3/7/2018 5:57 pm : link
until the Eagles know Wentz is 100% and is ready to start. Once that happens, Foles will net them a 1st round pick.
LOL - Not a chance.  
ZogZerg : 3/7/2018 6:37 pm : link
They could have had Foles last year. He is not the answer for them.

Cleveland is going to sign the Cincy backup and draft a QB if they have a Brain.
Jay brings up a good point  
lono801 : 3/7/2018 6:49 pm : link
They have a lot of money locked into them.

Unless they think one of them can kick outside
They have zeitler  
TommyWiseau : 3/7/2018 7:40 pm : link
And Bitonio, why would they bring in another guard? Many other scenerios make more sense
Maybe Botinio or Zeitler can play Center and put Nelson  
Rjanyg : 3/7/2018 9:02 pm : link
At Guard.

I do see AJ McCarrons being signed since they tried to trade for him last year.

I am hoping Cleveland is intent on getting Barkley and their QB with them trading with us.

This is what, as I giants fan I want. I think it makes some sense for the Browns as well. They get the best player and their top QB pick.
Browns aren’t going to keep 1 and 4 and  
Giant John : 3/8/2018 5:49 am : link
Get Nick Foles. I expect Mayock would know better. Eagirls are asking a kings ransome. Like poster above said “not a chance”.

Um, Foles does not suck. He was terrific in this last playoff run. He did have one really crappy year with the Rams but his career QBR is higher than Eli's. His 2013 year (under Shurmer btw) was extremely impressive. I am not trying to gush over the guy but to say he sucks...that's not right. He proved himself this year.
