First-round projection: The Cleveland Browns most likely will get their choice of the top receiver (Texas Tech's Michael Crabtree) or top pass-rushing defensive end (Texas' Brian Orakpo) at No. 5. They also could go for the third offensive tackle if they felt comfortable with Alabama's Andre Smith.

Other scenarios: Assuming the Browns trade Braylon Edwards, the need for a wideout will be even greater. The deal would likely bring them a second pick in the first round – the New York Giants' at 29? – and a chance to get four of the top 50 players in the draft. That would go a long way toward the George Kokinis-Eric Mangini reclamation project.
