Here's an idea: the Cleveland Browns should use the No. 19 pick in the draft on Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon.
Everyone has shied away from first-round running backs since the Browns traded Trent Richardson to the Colts and watched his stock drop.
However, one case does not prove a theory. If the Browns can establish a ground game with Gordon joining Terrence West and Isaiah Crowell, it could give the Browns another year to find a decent quarterback.
Also, if the Browns don't take Gordon, he could very easily go to the Pittsburgh Steelers or Baltimore Ravens. Then the Browns would be chasing him around twice a year.
If the price to trade up for Marcus Mariota is too steep, the Browns would be wise to build its strength on the ground before taking to the air.Read more... Join the Conversation...
