3. (Former) VP of Football Operations Sashi BrownOne could make the argument that Brown deserves to be at the top of this list and anyone who follows me on Twitter is likely surprised he isn’t. Even nearly a month after being fired and replaced by new general manager John Dorsey, the team’s former general counsel remains a punching bag favorite for Browns fans, and for good reason his draft resume has been that bad..

If ESPN had been able to flip the two Monday night games, its ratings almost certainly would’ve been stronger. The Broncos Chargers game was absolutely bonkers, culminating in a blocked field goal with one second left on the clock, but given that it was well past one in the morning when the whistle finally blew, relatively few people on the east coast were able to stick around for the finale. ET.).
Shurmur then went to Minnesota as tight ends coach under Mike Zimmer, and replaced offensive coordinator Norv Turner another former Browns coach in November of 2015.

Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon poses for photos after being selected by the Chargers as the 15th pick in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft.After spending big to get running back Melvin Gordon of Wisconsin, the San Diego Chargers will have only four more picks during the last two days of the NFL draft.WILL THE CHARGERS’ FIRST ROUND DEAL PAY OFF?Was it wise for the Chargers to trade away a 4th round pick this year and 5th round pick next year to move up two spots and take running back Melvin Gordon?Like every other pick this year (and in the past 50 years) we will have the answer two or three years from now.It seems clear the Chargers made this trade so that a team selecting after them didn’t leap frog them by making a similar trade. The 49ers and Texans were due to select 15 and 16 before the Chargers at 17.I have a hard time believing that Houston would select Gordon since they have Arian Foster on their roster, and while San Francisco might have a need at running back, they knew they could still get the player they sought at 17 (they took DT Arik Armstead of Oregon), stock pile picks and get a running back later this weekend in a draft that is deep in that position.Losing their 4th round pick, the Chargers will draft just 5 players in the NFL Draft.That move is drawing criticism from the scribes and complaints from the fans; but figuring you’re doing well if four draftees turn into serious NFL players, the Chargers can still have an impactful and successful draft if they choose wisely. We will learn if they do/did no later than 2017.A BARGAIN DRAFT PICK IN THE SECOND ROUNDThe 2nd round pick of Denzel Perryman from the University of Miami looks to be one of bargain versus need.The Chargers defensive needs were at nose tackle and edge rushers to replace Jarret Johnson and Dwight Freeney.Perryman is an inside linebacker, so Tom Telesco and crew must have felt Perryman had slipped down the draft board and couldn’t be passed on.
