The Cleveland Browns are on the clock. Six days and counting before the NFL draft begins, they are still weighing the value of the No. 1 pick. Do they invest millions of dollars in defensive end Courtney Brown or pledge their future to linebacker LaVar Arrington? Take the best pass-rushing end to come out in the last 15 years? Or opt for the free-lancing linebacker who conjures up visions of Lawrence Taylor? Tough call. Intriguing decision. Ozzie Newsome wishes he had it to make, though.

ASHBURN, Va. - Dressed in a bluish-black checkerboard suit, NFL draft No. 2 pick LaVar Arrington expressed relief yesterday at getting his contract resolved with the Redskins. Arrington agreed to a seven-year deal that could be worth as much as $50 million, with a $10.75 million signing bonus. The contract, which has a base salary of between $35 million and $36 million, is voidable after the sixth year. The signing ends a six-day holdout. "I'm just excited to be here," Arrington said.

George Kokinis, the Ravens' pro personnel director, sizes up the Browns: Strength of offense Stability at quarterback. They went back and forth with Kelly Holcomb and Tim Couch last year. Jeff Garcia has won a lot of games and has completed a lot of passes. He can make plays when plays break down. His mobility and ability to see the field are his biggest strengths. Strength of defense Front line. There's talent there with a lot of high draft picks, but it hasn't jelled yet.

Could Courtney Brown become this year's Jevon Kearse? Or could the rookie defensive end develop into the game's next Bruce Smith? Brown, though, has more pressing matters to address, namely boosting the Cleveland Browns' defense. The Browns ranked 31st overall defensively in the NFL. The unit had an NFL-low 25 sacks. That's why they drafted Brown with the first pick in the draft. The former Penn State standout is the first defensive end drafted No. 1 overall since Smith in 1985. "He's everything he's advertised to be," Browns coach Chris Palmer said.

No. 18 Texas A&M (8-3) vs. No. 13 Penn State (9-3)When: Tonight, 7: 30Where: Alamodome, San AntonioTV: ESPNLine: Penn State by 6 1/2Outlook: The physical Aggies ended the season on an emotional note. They rallied for a 20-16 victory over rival Texas just days after 12 people died in a tragic bonfire collapse on campus. The Aggies struggled on the road this year, getting blown out at Oklahoma and Nebraska. Luckily, their bowl game is close to home. QB Randy McCown is limited but gutsy. He might have a hard time against Penn State's pass rush.

This would have been Edwin Mulitalo's type of game. The Cleveland Browns struggle against the run, and Mulitalo especially likes to run-block, but unfortunately for the Ravens' third-year guard, he will have to watch. Mulitalo had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee yesterday and is expected to miss seven to 10 days. There was a slight fear the injury would be worse, so coach Brian Billick felt the Ravens (3-2) caught a break, with Mulitalo expected to miss only Sunday's game at Cleveland (3-2)

Preparation meets opportunity tomorrow when Phil Savage, armed with the third pick in the NFL draft and the authority to move it, finally steps out on his own as general manager of the Cleveland Browns. The course Savage sets in his first Browns draft not only will shape the next five years in Cleveland, but directly affect the long-term success of the team he leaves behind. For the past nine drafts, Savage huddled in the Ravens' war room with general manager Ozzie Newsome. Together, they selected 10 players who eventually went to the Pro Bowl.

Orlando Brown, always the straight shooter, needed little time to rattle off the names of people he can trust unconditionally. "She really is the only one," the Ravens' right tackle said of his ailing mother, Catherine. "But this is where you become a man. You've got to take care of your mother and your father. She is older, at 75, and has had a good life." Brown's mother was hospitalized twice since the Ravens started training camp, as her failing health left her in a semi-coma. Brown missed three of four preseason games to tend to her, including the finale against the New York Giants last week, when her condition took a turn for the worse.

The year 2001 has been a very good one for Ralph Henry. He has regained the weight he was forced to shed as a plebe in order to pass the physical running test for the Naval Academy football team. He is again enjoying one of his favorite pastimes, eating. And because defensive end Michael Wagoner was suspended from the team as a disciplinary measure during the first three games, Henry received a legitimate shot to earn a starting position. He succeeded. The graduate of Eastern Tech has beefed up to 258 pounds again and is starting at right defensive end for the winless Midshipmen, who have flashed notable improvement at stopping the opposition in the past three games.
