“Well, you can’t really go wrong with the #4 pick.” Those were actual words spoken to me last week when discussing the Browns’ position in tonight’s draft. Naturally, the gentleman speaking those words was not a Browns fan, and apparently woefully ignorant of what it means to be a Cleveland fan.The draft history of the “new Browns” was so bad that I started rooting for the team to trade their #1 picks - and the crushing failure they were destined to be - for a handful of #2s and #3s, knowing that their failure wouldn’t be as hurtful—and any upside that much sweeter. When Tim Couch was drafted, everyone knew he racked up yards in a dink- and dunk- offense. But that didn’t scare the team. Unfortunately. Some picks (Courtney Brown and Gerard Warren, in particular), did look good at the time. I distinctly remember a “Courtney Brown or Trade Down” sign in the stadium. And I agreed. William Green, Brady Quinn, Kellen Winslow, Craig Powell, Clifford Charlton, Mike Junkin. You don’t have to
