Browns select Pierre Desir, CB Lindenwood with 127th pick


The Cleveland Browns used the 127th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the one they acquired from the Indianapolis Colts, to pick Pierre Desircornerback Lindenwood.  Desir has great length, brings toughness and has overcome quite a bit to get to this point in his life.

The pick is a bit of a head scratcher in terms of the position, but the value is terrific.  For me, Desir was a second round pick.  The Browns now have a giant set of corners.  Joe Haden is now the third tallest corner in the group with Justin Gilbert at just over 6′ and Desir at about 6’1″.  Here is my breakdown on Desir.

He shined at the Reese’s Senior Bowl, never looking like he was a small school player playing against bigger schools.  He looked like a guy that was ready and able to compete with anyone put up against him.

All of a sudden, the Browns have 4 really talented corners and Leon McFadden that was a third round pick last year that could make some noise this year.

    Can any play wide out?? Who is Hoyer or Manziel going to throw to? Sometimes you need to break your chain and make one draft for need!! Was this the draft that was to help our offense? I wonder what Farmer and Pettine would think when the offense can’t stay on the field because they have no one to catch a pass? Will they think back to the time they could have had an extra wide receiver in this part of the draft! Can MaGahee play wide out?

    Seriously? We needed another CB? Not one single WR taken. This is going to be another boring offense just like last year. 3 points and a cloud of dust. Way to waste all those draft picks, Browns.
    Too bad we couldn’t draft Coaches.
