The NFL Combine has completed and Mock Drafts will be updated accordingly, hopefully you look forward to ours this Friday. Today we are looking at the Dual CBS Sports 2014 NFL Mock Drafts that were posted earlier today. While CBS Sports now have 4 people doing Mocks, Rob Rang and Dane Brugler tend to publish theirs together on the same date, allowing us to compare and contrast them.
4. CLEVELAND BROWNS
Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville: The Browns have a new head coach and general manager so right now it’s anyone’s guess the direction they go. But quarterback is still a strong need and with Bridgewater on the board, Cleveland has a chance to upgrade the position.
26. CLEVELAND BROWNS (FROM INDIANAPOLIS)
C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama: If the Browns go quarterback at No. 4 overall, their second first round pick is a wildcard with several need areas on the Cleveland roster. And while linebacker isn’t tops on that list, if a player like Mosley is still available, he makes sense inside next to D’Qwell Jackson.
Brugler stays consistent with the Browns going with a QB and Mosley with their first two picks. This time Brugler has the Browns selecting Bridgewater, who of all of the QBs could slide on draft day, instead of Manziel or Bortles. In his draft Teddy is the last of the big 3 quarterbacks with Bortles going #1 and Manziel #3. Bridgewater is a safe bet but raised flags for not running or doing drills at the Combine. Scouts noted his increased size at the Combine but think he may of beefed up for measurements but not run with concerns it would impact his time. If he is back to his slimmed down college weight at his pro day flags will be raised. Mosley is a stalwart inside linebacker who some believe will be the best out of Alabama in the last few years. Mosley fits a short term need next to Jackson and as a long term replacement in talent and leadership when Jackson is let go.
