The Browns passed over Smith with the 6th over-all pick and with good reason. Smith is not a 1st round draft pick. 31 other NFL teams passed over him too. The Browns already made the mistake of wasting a 1st round...
Barkevious Mingo is coming into this NFL draft a little green as he only came to the game of football in his junior year of high school. Even though he was still new, he earned a 4 Star Rating as he was recruited and accepted a scholarship to play at LSU.

If the Browns can secure Mallet, they could move into the top 3...
The Cleveland Browns continued to revampt their front seven with the addition of Barkevious Mingo with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Not only is there a quarterback wearing the number 17 in Cleveland this year, the Browns have drafted...
Can’t a man solicit a prostitute without the cops getting involved these days? Apparently not.

It is almost humorous how far Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam III will go to try to protect his image.

There are some that would view what he is doing as witness tampering. Haslam...

Simply put, Groves is just upset he got caught.
He didn’t care about his family or team when he solicited an undercover cop that he thought was a prostitute for sex and $20 extra for anal.
But, I understand he has to put out these type of statements to try to save some face.
“I want to apologize to the Browns organization, our fans and the city of Cleveland for putting myself...
