While NFL Mock Drafts seem to take over the landscape of the internet as the draft approaches, good ones in and of themselves are time consuming and tiring. To complete a First Mock Draft, with descriptions and making sure you don’t miss someone, takes at minimum and hour or two. To complete 7 Round Mocks like some do is even more impressive. NFL Mocks has on an on going 7 Round NFL Mock right now which is exciting to wait for the next round to be published. Right now they have completed through Round 4 and include trades, add another hour or so. So lets see what they have given the Cleveland Browns so far:
#4 – Cleveland Browns – Jake Matthews – OT – Texas A&M
With Watkins going off the board the Cleveland Browns are in a dilemma. Do they go for an aggressive move or play the board. Smart money always says go with the safe pick. Jake Matthews if the most complete offensive tackle on the board. He can slide across from Joe Thomas on that offensive line and excel from Day One.
They have Blake Bortles 1, Jadeveon Clowney 2 (to the Falcons) and Sammy Watkins going third (to the Detroit Lions). This leaves the Browns with choices between Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater, Greg Robinson, Khalil Mack, Mike Evans and Matthews. They give the team the safe pick in Matthews which doesn’t make too many happy but could be solid. The two remaining “studs” according to all analysts are Robinson and Mack. Mack may be too redundant but Robinson seems to make more sense as a mauling right tackle over Matthews technically sound play.
