Browns seem set on drafting QB

After all their wheeling and dealing at the quarterback position over the past week, the Browns appear by no means done at addressing that position as team President Mike Holmgren admitted he likes Sam Bradford a lot.

“I like Sam a lot; yeah, I like him a lot,” said Holmgren. “He’s a fine player.”

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Holmgren said he will consider taking a QB at seven overall or trade up if necessary, knowing St. Louis and Washington at 1st and 4th overall also need QB help.

“I believe that’s what it would take,” Holmgren said. “We’ll have to analyze what our needs are — how to make the team better right away. We have some areas that we have to address that are as crucial now immediately as the quarterback thing. This is probably the only year we have all of these draft picks, so we have to be wise in how we do that.”

The Browns have 12 picks, which Holmgren admitted is enough to pull of a blockbuster trade. With Jake Delhomme signed for two years and 35-years old and Seneca Wallace a career backup even Holmgren didn’t try to hide the team’s direction at the position.

“You can kind of paint the picture yourself of what we’re going to try to do,” he said.
