I wouldn't think him to be a huge injury risk if he is in shape. It'll be his age 31 season, sure, but outside of his last season in 2015, Lynch has incredibly durable. From 2010 to 2014, Lynch played 79 out of 80 games and now he's had more than one full year of rest.

The bigger concern for Lynch was that Thomas Rawls outplayed him two seasons ago.

There's always talk before the draft about the team with the #1 pick and what they intend to do with it. Believe me, I am familiar with it. But if Jimmy Haslam steps in and demands the Browns take Mitch Trubisky or any other quarterback above Myles Garrett with the first pick, I will reconsider my loyalty to the Browns. That's no small thing to me. Haslam already did this once with Johnny Manziel, and if he does it a second time this draft, then I doubt I will be able to muster any more fandom for Cleveland as I just don't have the energy. Right now I very much like this front office the Browns have brought in, and I am aboard this train, but I will likely jump off if a meddling owner interjects himself into personnel decisions.

That said, the Browns will take Myles Garrett. The Browns also need to stay put with the Eagles' #12 overall. I suspect Trubisky (a native Clevelander) will be gone by then, but I most want Patrick Mahomes for the Browns anyway. The Browns don't have to select a QB there as I also would be happy with help at safety or cornerback, but what the Browns cannot do is trade away high draft choices that would start for this team. There's no logic in trading a second and third-rounder to move up from 12 when this quarterback class is seen by most as a crapshoot. I would even rather the Browns select Trusbisky #1 and keep the three high picks (#12, second and third rounder) over simply grabbing Myles Garrett. The Browns need starters, and they need the high quantity of picks in order to hit on quality players. This front office has done amazingly well in collecting draft picks these past two years, and this draft class is extremely deep. The Browns have five choices in the first 65 picks, and they need to build around these early selections.

Myles Garrett to the Browns. Fantastic job throwing the 2016 season, Cleveland. It was all worth it.

Ian Rapaport says the Browns are trying to trade for Kirk Cousins. Meh. Just sit at 12 and take Patrick Mahomes.

Goddammit, Andy Reid. I hope you suffer a head injury that takes away your sense of taste.

I used the wrong thread. Why are they both on the front page.

Love the pick. Don't even know what they gave up to move up in the draft, don't care.

Yeah, but at least you didn't get Trubisky

Moses, apologize for probably ruining Jabrill Peppers.
