The Browns' Twitter Account Tried To Flirt With The Idea Of Taking Saquon Barkley 1st Overall, And - Wouldn't You Believe It - They Failed
Honestly, the Cleveland Browns might as well walk to the podium and announce - to fans that are already expecting the worst - that instead of selecting the freakishly talented running back that shares his jersey number, they have taken his soon-to-be-sophomore teammate that is yet to be draft eligible. If we are all being upfront here, trying to pick underaged safety Jonathan Sutherland first overall stands just about as good of a chance as working out for them as does reaching for a skill position player to play in an offense where skills go to die.
Saquon Barkley's has an endless array of abilities, but - as Todd Gurley and Ezekiel Elliott have proven - it takes a very particular set of circumstances to make a running back worthy of a top spot in the draft. I don't think I'm breaking any news by saying that the 0-16 organization - whose social media team couldn't even properly 'Google Image' one the millions of photos made readily available to them by the internet - has it "all there" in being able to foster an all-world talent whose productivity is, at least in part, dependent on the competence of others. It's quite apparent that everything turns to shit once the Cleveland Browns get their hands on it, so no - I don't think a franchise that can't execute an agreed upon trade or properly utilize a search engine can properly utilize a superior athlete at halfback.
