As we scour the web to find the type of information that you the reader get a comprehensive look at what expectations they have for the 2014 NFL Mock Draft. We will continue to bring you Matt Miller, Todd McShay, Mel Kiper and the CBS Sports guys who do a quality job of covering all things draft. Today we take a quick detour to Scout.com’s new Mock Draft, we figured anybody with a website called Scout.com should know a little bit about what they are talking about. So lets take a look at who they have for our Cleveland Browns:
Round 14 Louisville
ANALYSIS: The Browns could go a number of different ways but with Manziel gone to the Jaguars they have to solidify the quarterback position and will have their choice between Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles. Here they go with the more ready Bridgewater, from nearby Louisville. Bridgewater has been a big winner at every level of the game and there’s no reason to think that he can’t be once again for the Browns.
They have the Browns taking Bridgewater, something we had also yesterday in our Weekly FoS 2014 NFL Mock Draft. The first three picks went Jadeveon Clowney, Jake Matthews and Johnny Manziel leaving Bridgewater and Sammy Watkins as possible options for the Browns, as well as Greg Robinson. His last statement about Teddy being a big winner may be something that draws the new regime to draft him.
Round 126 OLB Ryan ShazierOhio State
ANALYSIS: The Browns have their quarterback and could go with a play making wide receiver here. But those guys can be found later in the draft. They can’t pass on former Ohio State star linebacker Ryan Shazier. He’s a speedy playmaker that will be a huge addition to the Cleveland defense.
Amazingly Scout.com and FoS have the same picks in their most recent Mock Drafts. Shazier is a speedy playmaker indeed which makes him ideal fit in the Browns version of the 3-4. He can rush the passer, stop the run and cover backs and tight ends, everything needed next to the hard hitting Karlos Dansby.
Now that Scout.com gives the Browns Bridgewater and Shazier do you trust FoS more? Think its a coincidence? Does it impact your thoughts on either players for the Browns or does the flashy, shiny Sammy Watkins continue to draw your eye?
