The Perfect 1st Round NFL Mock Draft for the Cleveland Browns


As the NFL draft slowly approaches, under a month now, fans and media are still divided on what they want or expect for the Cleveland Browns, especially in the first round. Having 2 picks in the first round creates extra excitement but also extra concern for many fans. If the team didn’t have that second first would more fans want a QB at #4? If the draft wasn’t as deep at WR would more fans be okay with Sammy Watkins at #4? Daniel Jeremiah may have just created the Perfect 1st Round NFL Mock Draft for the Cleveland Browns:

The Browns wait on a quarterback and nab the top pass catcher in the draft to pair with Josh Gordon.
With Johnny Manziel the only QB off the board so far, at #3 to the Jaguars, the Browns could take Blake Bortles or Teddy Bridgewater. Instead they, Jeremiah, make many fans happy with the electric receiver out of Clemson who could make the Browns offense hum with any quarterback at the helm.
I wouldn’t be shocked if the Browns chose Jimmy Garoppolo with this pick (there’s a lot of chatter connecting the two), but I’ll stick with Bridgewater right now.
And to many draft experts Bridgewater is not just any quarterback, he is a top shelf, top flight guy. Putting Bridgewater in competition with Brian Hoyer can bring out the best in both of them. The winner has Gordon, Watkins, Ben Tate, Andrew Hawkins and Jordan Cameron as weapons to play with. If Bridgewater loses out this year he gets to develop his deep throwing and his body for the rigors of the NFL. Garoppolo is a different discussion as many see a need for time for him to develop. Could the Browns shock the world and pick him over Bridgewater, Derek Carr and others?
So everyone should go home happy the Browns get Watkins and a top flight QB in Bridgewater. Tell me why you are happy. Tell me what you don’t like.
