Third-round pick: Charlie Frye

Beautiful. Many had Akron quarterback Charlie Frye possibly going in the second round, with the Browns reportedly one of the teams interested in taking him. Well, they got him, but in the third, not the second. I love it. This kid is big (6-4, 217), tough, smart and athletic, and while he doesn’t have the biggest arm in the draft, he’s accurate on the run and in the pocket. Trent Dilfer was brought in to “bridge the gap” to Savage and Crennel’s young QB, and that young QB is Charlie Frye. With the recent success of MAC quarterbacks in the NFL (Ben Roethlisberger, Byron Leftwich and Chad Pennington), there’s every reason to believe that this kid will be successful when the Browns are ready to hand him the reins.
