Earlier today we covered two different NFL Mock Drafts for the Cleveland Browns. The first Emory Hunt created a interesting 7 Round Mock for the Browns that could leave you surprised, and maybe disappointed. We then covered Mel Kiper’s ‘A’ grade draft, where he drafts as the GM for each team and drafts in a way that he would give each team an ‘A’ grade. This afternoon we cover SI’s Audibles’ NFL Mock Draft whereJohnny Manziel goes #1. Manziel going first will have a huge impact on the team’s below, specifically the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Browns.
