The Cleveland Browns are marching toward the 2019 NFL Draft, and a star edge rusher lands in the Browns lap in the Factory’s first mock draft of the season.

With the combine out of the way, it’s time for a draft out there. The combine saw a lot of players help their stocks, particularly receivers and corners who can flash speed all day long at the underwear olympics.

Look for version 2.0 just before the onset of free agency, which commences, along with the new NFL league year, March 13.

1. ArizonaKyler Murray -QB-Oklahoma-With Kyler Murray coming in a little over 5-foot-10 and at 207 pounds, the reigning Heisman winner was one of the biggest winners of the NFL Combine.

A lot still think 5-10 is too small, but it’s a heck-of-a-lot better than 5-9, so Murray’s size concerns have been relieved, a little bit, anyway.

For a little fun, imagine Josh Rosen was coming out in this draft. How many teams would have him rated over Murray?

In this scenario, the Cardinals trade Josh Rosen to the Redskins for picks 46 and 96.

2. San FranciscoNick Bosa-DE-Ohio St.-Niners get their stud rush end in Ohio Sate’s Nick Bosa, and are doing backflips the Cards took a QB so he would fall to them.

Bosa had been mocked No. 1 in just about every mock draft until Murray’s height dominated Combine headlines.

3. New York JetsJosh Allen-Edge-Kentucky-Jets primary need is at pass rusher, and they take Josh Allen over Quinnen Williams.

4. Oakland Quinnen Williams-DT-Alabama-After trading Khalil Mack, the Raiders have been crying for a pass rush. Makes you wonder what the heck is going on out there.

John Gruden ends up selecting defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, who brings it from the interior hoping to free up their guys off the edge.
