Very few names have been linked to the Cleveland Browns with their fourth pick but what if the team has other ideas?

Two names that have been mentioned in mock drafts to go the Cleveland Browns with the fourth pick are Penn State RB Saquon Barkley and NC State DE Bradley Chubb. Both are great prospects and deserve to be slotted in so early.

However, both have some flaws and Browns general manager John Dorsey may prefer to go a different route altogether. Given how close to the vest Dorsey is playing everything, there are a couple of things to consider?

First, there are so many smokescreens regarding the first pick. Who is to say Cleveland is not doing the same with the fourth pick? Both Barkley and Chubb could help them but what if the Browns wants a different RB and DE instead.

Then again, their options may be even easier to choose from if one of them is chosen with the second pick by the New York Giants. Going off the mindset that one of them is chosen before the fourth pick and/or Cleveland doesn’t plan on drafting either at four, here are five other options for the fourth pick.
