Best Draft Magic

Phil Savage

History may remember this past April 28 as the day our long-suffering NFL franchise turned the corner. First, Browns GM Phil Savage passed on Oklahoma's Adrian Peterson and Notre Dame's Brady Quinn. Instead he took Wisconsin's Joe Thomas, thereby saving the team the trouble of drafting a left tackle for the next dozen years. Then, with Quinn in a first-round free fall, Savage traded for Dallas' first-rounder to land Quinn, scratching quarterback off the list too. Then he traded up again to grab UNLV cornerback Eric Wright, another high-ranking talent. It was like three great drafts in one. See you soon, January.
