Late night bullshit: Let's fix the Browns.

Two first round picks and TONS of cap space. But oy, what a ****ing mess.

Assumptions:

1. The Browns extend WR Josh Gordan 5 years, $51m ($33m guaranteed).

2. The Browns restructure ILB D'Qwell Jackson.

3. The Browns re-sign C Alex Mack for 5 years, $35m ($22m guaranteed), S TJ Ward for 4 years, $25m ($14m guaranteed).

4. The Browns re-sign CB Julian Posey to minimal deals.

5. The Browns let walk: RB Willis McGahee, OG Shawn Lauvao, ILB Craig Robertson, K Billy Cundiff

6. The Browns cut: QB Brandon Weeden

7. Browns sign RB Maurice Jones-Drew (Jaguars) for 3-year, $20m ($7m guaranteed), DE Ropati Pitoitua (Titans) for 1-year, $2m, ILB Dan Connor (Panthers) to a minimal deal, OLB Frank Zombo (Chiefs) to a minimal deal, S Mike Adams (Broncos) for 1-year, $3m, K Jay Feely (Cardinals) for 1-year, $4m.

On with the show:

1.4. QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M

The Browns desperately need a game changer at the QB position. Manziel has every conceivable tool you need to be the next Philip Rivers, albeit a physically smaller version. The coaches will need to get him out of running the ball so much, but Manziel is a phenomenal talent, and though he is a problem child off the field, he brings a cockiness and an expectation of greatness that this organization never, ever sees.

Manziel comes into a decent situation. He doesn't necessarily have to start right away, assuming Brian Hoyer comes into his own. He's got great protection from his OL, a good security blanket in Jordan Camerson, and he's got a Top 5 receiver in Josh Gordon. He'll need a better slot WR than Davone Bess, but with all the holes this team has, that can wait.

Also, he's got............................

1.26. WR Kelvin Benjamin, Florida State

A receiver with decimating size (6'3", 232 lbs), Benjamin is a larger-than-life presence with phenomenal hands, who plays the best when the lights are brightest -- a quality sorely needed in Cleveland. Josh Gordon gives the Browns a deep threat, meaning Benjamin develops into the perfect possession WR compliment. Manziel now has two great weapons out wide (and all of a sudden, a pretty good bench with Bess and Little now getting their snaps reduced), as well as a good TE with great OL protection.

2.35. OG Cyril Richardson, Baylor

Cyril Richardson is a massive, bull-strong guard who can punish DLs all game long. He's not terribly athletic, and will require a learning curve. Otherwise, he's plug-and-play.

3.71. CB Loucheiz Purifoy, Florida

The Browns need someone with starter potential who can eventually take over for Buster Skrine. More than anything, the Browns just need more depth in their secondary, as they are getting torched by the strong passing attacks that now populate the AFC North.

3.83. DE Kelcy Quarles, South Carolina

A pure passrushing DE in the 3-4, you'll bring Quarles in obvious passing situations.

4.102. RB De'Anthony Thomas, Oregon

The Browns get an explosive talent that can return some kicks in the McCluster-sized Thomas. Thomas comes with durability concerns, but the Browns need more threats on offense. Thomas won't be expected to be the lead back.

4.122. NT Beau Allen, Wisconsin

Allen is a 330 lbs pure run stuffer. In case Phil Taylor needs a blow.

5.133. RB Devonta Freeman, Florida State

The Browns just need more playmaking ability out of the backfield. Freeman has a sneaky combination of quickness and power.

6.164. P Tom Hornsey, Memphis

The Browns have no punter. Hornsey's been the best punter in college football for three years.

7.196. TE Colt Lyerla, Oregon

Alright, so he's a coke-head. He's still incredibly talented, and if the new coach can create a positive locker room environment, who knows.

I do not see Josh Gordon signing an extension for only 51 million...especially to stay in Cleveland. He will expect more than Dwayne Bowe money.

I see more Todd Reesing in Manziel than Phillip Rivers or RGIII.

Rather small, below average arm, and slower than Wilson or RGIII.

I have a difficult time believing he'll be able to adapt to the speed and brutality of the NFL.
