NEW YORK — The Browns traded back in to the bottom of the second round, and we quickly found out why: Montario Hardesty.
The Browns traded their third-round pick (No. 71) and two fifth-round picks (134 and 146) to the Eagles for the right to take Hardesty. That, apparently, did not sit well with one Eagles fan in the peanut gallery at Radio City Music Hall.
You couldn’t even see him, but you could hear him scream this out after the trade was announced: “What are you doing? You’re killing me!”
It seems appropriate at this point to suggest that this pick is not a matter of life or death. But, nonetheless, Eagles fans you can congregate in the Eagles Fan War Room.
Hardesty, a big, physical runner, seems like an ideal fit for the Browns to complement the smaller Jerome Harrison.
