The Twitter world allows for a great deal of information to be shared, discussed and argued over. Sometimes it is easy to get lost in all the different people you follow and what they have to say. Yet you should always find a few to follow that you learn from, that challenge you or that interact with you in a way to grow whatever it is you are interested in. If you follow me on Twitter (thank you or click the word Twitter to connect with me), you can follow my list of NFL People I Trust. One of those people is Emory Hunt, follow him here, who provides unique insight especially of smaller school prospects. He recently completed a video breakdown of a 7 round mock draft for the Cleveland Browns, you can find it here and I will embed the video at the end of this article. Lets see who he gives the Browns:
#4 – Jadeveon Clowney
He doesn’t lay out how the first 3 picks went in his draft but needless to say the Browns would have some options if Clowney falls to them. They can select him, as Hunt has them doing, and play him all over the field. He can play down at defensive end or up as an outside linebacker in the 3-4 or with his hand in the dirt in a 4-3. On passing downs he has the size to move inside in a 4-3 as well. While many would consider this a luxury pick teams strive when they get the best talent available. After yesterday’s Pro Day many have Clowney going #1 overall.
The other option here for the Browns would be a trade back. They could sell off Clowney to a number of teams starting with the Atlanta Falcons at #6. The biggest question will be how far are they willing to fall back? Could Tampa Bay at #7, the Vikings at #8 or as far down as the pick loaded and ultra aggressive San Francisco 49ers at the bottom of the draft. Would Browns fans lose their mind at another huge trade down that could get the team multiple extra picks all over this years and 2015 draft? Probably. The Titans, Giants, Bears, Cowboys among others are among the mid round picks that could look to move up, and give the Browns a huge bounty. Still unlikely that Clowney is here but some options to be prepared for. On to #26:
