I seem to remember a former Cleveland Browns coach that took over the Kansas City Chiefs team! Marty Schottenheimer did good things for the Chiefs of the 90's. Romeo Crennel has the reins now and we can only hope for similar in-seson success and greater highs in the post-season. Well, what did Romeo do in Cleveland to shape his roster. More Specifically who did Romeo chose to put on his roster and When, How, Why?

Regarding the 2006 draft. from Wiki

As the 2006 NFL Draft neared in late April, the Browns had already filled in many of their holes through free agency, and would primarily be looking for players who would help the 3–4 defense. The Browns had their eyes set on Haloti Ngata, who they would presumably build up to take over for Ted Washington. On the day of the draft, the Browns traded their 12th pick to the Baltimore Ravens for the 13th pick and a 6th round pick. Baltimore used the pick to take Ngata, while the Browns selected outside linebacker Kamerion Wimbley, the player who Cleveland GM Phil Savage had wanted the whole time.

The selection of inside linebacker D'Qwell Jackson in the second round created a linebacker core of Andra Davis, Jackson, McGinest, and Wimbley. Wide receiver Travis Wilson was selected in the 3rd round as a developmental project and future possession receiver. On day two of the draft, seven other players were taken; linebacker Leon Williams, tackle Isaac Sowells, running back Jerome Harrison, cornerback DeMario Minter, fullback Lawrence Vickers, nose tackle Babatunde Oshinowo, and safety Justin Hamilton. Minter ended up being the only rookie not playing a down that season due to injury. The way the Browns handled the draft was mostly praised, filling in their voids and finding future starters in late rounds
