Who Will Have The Final Say?

Everyone has heard the rumors by now...Mike Brown wasn't totally sold on Andy Dalton, and there is a short list of QB's he is supposed to have preferred. Marvin Lewis and Jay Gruden had to "sell" him that Andy was the right choice. The pick made was the right one in hindsight, but it got me thinking...

Now this isn't going to be an Andy-bashing post, but it IS going to be about the final decisions on draft picks this year. MB has already said that he won't overpay for Andy Dalton at the expense of the rest of the team. We also know Andy is the guy according to ML. Combine all of that with the team having new coordinators all around, and Marvin in what could be his last year with the team, I'm wondering if Mike Brown will defer his preferences and final say to Marvin as easily this year. We've done a very solid job drafting the last few years, and a ton of credit is deserved to be heaped on the staff. BUT...that staff may be gone soon, and MB will still be here.

So what do you guys think? Will the draft be more of the same from the last 3 years, or will Mike Brown have his influence felt this time around (with a staff that may be gane after 2014)?
