Cleveland has serious issues and a terrible recent history drafting quarterbacks. Manziel brings them credibility, but the team sucks and their owner is under investigation by the feds. There's a ton of pressure on him now.

How nutty did the 49ers Draft Party look? Crazier than most NFL playoff parties

Time will tell, but I'm optimistic. I know the draft is always a crap shoot, and given the Browns history in the draft since 1999, it's been more busts than booms. However; I like the way the new front office handled this. You can't beat going into next year with plenty of cap room, and 2 1st round picks again!

On a side note, while the Browns were 4-12 last year, they did have 5 Pro Bowlers! That tells me that the issue with the Browns is (or was) in the front office. Not too many 4-12 teams produce 5 Pro Bowlers! Christ, when the Patriots won their first Super Bowl, I don't think that any of them made the Pro Bowl that year. I think the new owner Jimmy Haslam has finally taken out the trash, and I think with this new front office and coaching staff is moving in the right direction of cleaning up the mistakes of past regimes.

Bills trade WR Stevie Johnson to Niners for a 4th-rounder.
Nice pickup for the Niners.

No i didn't mean fallen..I never heard anyone calling him even a top ten pick. A couple of months ago
some of the so called experts said he may be a second or third round pick...

His stock has only risen within the past month, and last night it was all about him..

Dude i listen to sports talk radio every day and this GUY (john gruden like) was never considered a #1 pick..not even close..did he slip a bit, yes..but only after everyone fell in love with him the past month..

Should be an interesting night tonight with many good players on the board..

The Pat's pick...as long as this kid can stay healthy, it looks like a steal..

If I am a Bills fan I just sit back and shake my head. They give up a 1st and 4th round pick to move up 5 spots to grab Watkins. They then turn around and trade the only receiver on the team to consistently have any sort of production over the last few season despite playing with poor QBs. Two bad moves by the organization if you ask me.

Oh and the 49ers definitely got a steal and a nice pickup.

For those who dislike the a Panthers picking Kelvin Benjamin out of Florida St over Marquise Lee out of USC. I got five words for yall. Dwayne Jarrett and Keary Colbert. End of discussion.

I agree with yeah..not sure what the Bills are thinking!! He was their best receiver by far..I feel your pain man even though we are rivals..

Giving up the 1st was the real kicker in this deal..Good luck to you and your team, the bills and pats are always a good watch..

Just noticed your not a true bills fan! No biggie.. The Bills have their heads up their u know what for sure..
