Browns pick Joe Thomas with first pick

What a relief!

I was terrified that they might pick Brady Quinn. #3 is just way too high for Quinn.

Also, I liked Peterson, but that injury changed my mind and had to affect their thinking as well.

Thomas is a stud. He excels against speedy, athletic pass rushers. He will be a huge asset against teams like the Steelers and Ravens who use a 3-4. Mel Kiper called him the most dominating player in college football last season.

Now, with Thomas and Steinbach on the left side of the line, any QB playing for the Browns will have excellent blind-side protection.

I love this pick.
