By Dan WetzelA few days after the Browns traded down in the first round of the NFL draft to take the Alabama offensive tackle and Alabama safety, Browns fans had their first glimpse at the future of their offense.
They saw the new starters on the roster and saw a lot of promise.
The Browns were already in a position to take a quarterback with the No. 2 pick in the draft and the pick was not guaranteed.
This is when the Browns’ new coach and general manager, Hue Jackson, got a call.
He wanted to see the Browns take a defensive lineman.
He also wanted to watch the defensive line practice.
He knew that the Browns had an opportunity to trade down, but that he did not want to risk it.
Jackson and his coaching staff went to the Titans in the fourth round to get a defensive tackle in the sixth round, then moved on to the Jaguars in the ninth round to grab a defensive end.
The Jaguars were the only team that the team was interested in trading up for in the second round.
Jackson’s vision and his desire to see what the Browns could do at the position was what he had in mind.
He did not trust that the Titans could acquire the kind of player the Browns were interested in.
After the first meeting, the Browns did not sign any defensive linemen.
They did not think that they would get a quarterback in the seventh round.
They had a lot to prove.
The first three days of the draft, Jackson’s team made no moves and got nothing.
He had to make a decision and that decision was to go after an offensive lineman.
It was not to give up on the offensive line or not to be aggressive at all.
It could have been that the offense would have been a little bit better with the addition of a player in the third round, but he did a lot more in the two days before the draft.
There were a lot better offensive linemen available and a lot less offensive linemen on the team, so the Browns went for the best available offensive lineman in the eighth round.
The team’s best offensive lineman, J.J. Watt, was the first pick in this year’s draft.
He was a 6-foot-6, 260-pound, two-time Pro Bowler and one of the best players in the NFL.
He has become the top player in this draft class and he has a chance to be one of these NFL quarterbacks.
He’s the only player in NFL history to win two Super Bowl rings.
His athleticism and his pass-rushing ability make him a mismatch for opposing quarterbacks.
Watt is an elite athlete who is just 6-5, 250 pounds and is a threat to rush the passer.
He is also very quick and strong, so he has great ability to get in and out of gaps and he is an outstanding tackler.
Watt has had an impressive career, but his production has not been consistent.
He missed three games in 2014 with a knee injury, and then he missed three more games with an ankle injury in 2015.
He never got healthy, but Watt did not show the kind
