Are Thaddeus Gibson & Kurt Coleman In The Browns' Draft Plans?

Based on this article from The Plain Dealer on 03/18/2010, it sounds as if the Browns may have an interest in both Thaddeus Gibson as well as Kurt Coleman of Ohio State.

Personally, if Gibson is available at the top of round 2, I would pick him if I were the Browns. As I have written before, Thaddeus Gibson projects well to a 3-4 team such as the Browns. More importantly, Gibson is from the Cleveland area and would immediately identify with the fan base.

If Kurt Coleman is there in round 3, I would pick him as well. Considering the Browns have three 3rd round selections, Coleman could provide defensive back depth and would be a contributor on special teams.

As for the supposed private workout of Tim Tebow...I believe Tim Tebow would be a good pick as a project quarterback, and I am guessing Tebow will be selected in the 2nd or 3rd round. I believe a team such as New England or Indianapolis could pick Tim Tebow, and allow him to sit and learn the pro game.

The reality is the Browns need a young quarterback to groom and develop behind Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace, but is Tim Tebow the right fit for the Browns? Can the Browns wait a few years for Tebow? Mike Holmgren's comments on Tim Tebow have certainly piqued the curiosity of Browns fans everywhere.
