Would Sam Bradford develop as a QB in the tough AFC North

It has been reported that the Browns have been interested in trading into the first spot of the draft.  The assumption is that they want Sam Bradford.  While on the draft value chart that would seem impossible, due to the fact that the #1 pick is worth double the #7 pick, (3000 to 1500), if Cleveland were to throw in a 2nd rounder, it might be worth it for the Rams to consider, kind of like the Vick(#1) for LT(#5) trade that SD pulled off years ago. (They would also save money)

However, the Browns currently play in a very tough, physical division, which includes the Ravens, Steelers and newly improved (on D) Bengals.  Their offensive line is solid, anchored by a Pro Bowl caliber LT, Joe Thomas, taken with the third pick in the 2007 draft, but there offense lacks play makers at the skill positions like RB, TE, and WR.  Being taken by a team like the Browns could seriously hinder Bradford's growth as a QB.  Without play makers, he would likely find himself on his back alot, and could see his career trajectory be somewhat like David Carr or Joey Harrington.
