Crennel, Saban and Nolan could shape draft

ESPN’s Len Pasquarelli wrote an interesting column on how Mike Nolan, Nick Saban and Romeo Crennel are approaching their first drafts as head coaches and how their decisions could very well shape the entire draft. Pasquarelli says that while Nolan, Saban and Crennel are rookie coaches, their considerable NFL experience will serve them well this weekend.

It’s a good read, one that offers a glimpse of what the Browns may be thinking while also hinting at what the 49ers (Nolan) and Dolphins (Saban) may do ahead of Cleveland. For the first time in quite a few years, I have complete confidence in those making decisions for this franchise.

Of course, I also remember feeling this way for the first couple of Butch Davis drafts. But this is different. I hope.
