Browns High on OSU WR Brian Robiskie?

Brian Robiskie
The Columbus Dispatch reports that the Browns, who need pass catchers, are high on former OSU WR Brian Robiskie:

Former Ohio State receiver Brian Robiskie is part of a group that the Cleveland Browns likely will consider taking in the second round of the draft. The Browns have the 36th and 50th picks. If the Browns don’t trade the No. 5 overall pick, they aren’t expected to use it on Texas Tech receiver Michael Crabtree, even if he’s available. Some scouts think that the Browns are looking at Florida State defensive end Everette Brown, who could help Kameron Wimbley bounce back as a consistent pass-rush threat.

    As much as I love the bucks and robiskie, I don’t think he’ll transition to an impact receiver in the bigs right away, which is one of the numerous needs that we have to fill.

    Nice job on getting rid of Joe J., now we’re left with a disgruntled Braylon and Dante about to never play ball again. With this group, now we’re almost forced to use our pick on crabtree.

    I agree that we won’t likely trade our #5 pick, and we won’t select Crabtree even if he is available. Two of our first three picks in the Draft ought to be defensive players. I would not take Robiskie at #36 if someone like Everette Brown was available. Brown can play OLB in our 3-4 scheme (even though he played DE at Florida State). This guy is the best or near-best sacker/tackler combined in the Draft. He had 13.5 sacks and 21.5 tackles for a loss last year (leading the ACC in both categories). He was the only player in college football to rank in the top four in the nation in those two defensive stats.

      I don’t see how the Browns can’t trade down. Unless of course they don’t get any offers/takers. I’m hoping that they not only trade down, but trade some more players like DA, MAYBE BE, keep BQ and lets all say a prayer that they do get a couple good picks for each move, and then have the talented eye for GOOD draft pics that will impact us soon. I’m torn on the Rodgers thing. I hate big whinies who want out of a contract before the ink is dry, but you can’t get lemonade out of a rotten lemon, at least not that’s any good. So if that’s where that situation is headed, trade his big overpaid butt too. And don’t tell me about what some other player just signed for. it is OVERDUE for some commone sense to come back into the league as far as pay scale. It’s a game; they’re gonna make it so we’re all being taxed for new stadiums and paying for the privelege of BUYing tickets. Oh, that’s right. we already are! Not to mention the cost of parking, food, beer, etc.
      May common sense and luck prevail.

    I don’t see why they can’t take Crabtree at 5 if he is there. It has worked out well for the Browns to take receivers early in the past. Just look at Braylon “Swiss Cheese” Edwards. But I do think Crabtree is going to be a stud.
    Defense is definately what they need to address, but I still think they should look RB with 36.

    Can you say Brian Brennen or Joe J?! I see Robiskie as a good 3rd down possesion receiver like the afore mentioned. He runs good routes and has good hands, not blinding speed, but I’ll take good hands over speed any day. Our QB is going to need that go to guy and I think Robiskie would fit that mold.
