Day two decisions
April 23, 2010 - Mike McLain
The first thing that stands out when looking at the list of available players in the second day of the draft is the presence of quarterbacks Jimmy Clausen and Colt McCoy.
The Browns, who have the sixth choice in the round, are likely to be in position to select one of the two, and it's possible both will be available. Pre-draft speculation had the Browns interested in McCoy, but there are reports today that indicate the Browns might go in another direction.
Texas outside linebacker Sergio Kindle could be on the board at number six. Kindle is an elite pass rusher, something the Browns haven't had since the days of Clay Matthews. Kindle slipped out of the first round because of a knee problem that might require delicate microfracture surgery.
Everson Griffen, a solid defensive end from USC, also might be available. Griffen has loads of physical skills but a lack of intesnity and injuries have hurt his cause. He's a high risk-reward player.
I can't see the Browns selecting Clausen. Remember that Browns president Mike Holmgren said "I wished I like him more" a couple months ago.
McCoy could be the choice, but the Browns need starters. McCoy wouldn't start next season.
Look for the Browns to draft a player that they think can start next season. The quarterback will have to wait to later in the draft or perhaps to 2011.
