While the combine has started out quickly the weekend will provide a great deal of information about the players looking to get drafted. The NFL Meat Market is important but film study is often what makes decisions for front offices. Today we present a 7 Round Mock Draft for the Cleveland Browns. We used FanSpeak’s Simulator to help us make our picks.
#4 – Johnny Manziel – With both Blake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater off the board the Browns are left with selecting Manziel. With Brian Hoyer on the team the Browns can allow Manziel to develop and learn while Hoyer runs the team in Manziel’s rookie year. Manziel may not yet be ready to run a team but his work ethic and physical abilities make his success in the NFL as likely. Selecting Sammy Watkins, who measured right about 6 foot tall, is an option but expect the Browns to select whichever QB is available at #4.
#26 – Eric Ebron – Many have the Browns selecting a wide receiver here but with the athletic Ebron still available the Browns pull the trigger. Ebron would pair with Jordan Cameron to give the Browns the best tight end tandem in the league for a few years. Both can take attention away from Josh Gordon with their ability to play in line or in the slot. The Browns offense takes a huge leap forward for the future with Manziel and Ebron joining Gordon and Cameron as core skilled position players.
