At the same time, in a rare occurrence it’s defense that dominates the top 10. Pass rushers, safeties and cornerbacks come off the board in a flurry of moves. All the while one or two playmakers on the offensive side go to teams that so desperately need them. Yet nothing changes at the top. Cleveland remains steadfast in their target of choice. It’s what happens right after that starts to get a little bit crazy.

Yes there will be a debate on whether or not they should just get the best quarterback on the board. However, after going 1-15 how is a rookie quarterback going to change that. Even with an improved offensive line this team is miles away from contending. It’s probably best to focus on acquiring the best possible talent they can. Garrett is the only no brainer in this class. They deserve whatever they get if they don’t pick him.

If they want to get their new defense off the ground, it starts with putting heat on the quarterback.
